I just visited this place with a group of 8. On a Friday evening, it proved to be hard to find somewhere in the area where we could all be seated together, but at Brewery Lane we were all put together on a long table in the middle of the room. A big plus for tables fitting 10+ guests.
As we arrived early, the restaurant was quiet, and we were surprised that the waitress was very pushy getting our orders down. In a big group like this, it usually takes more than 2 minutes to decide what to eat and drink, and we were shown little understanding when we asked for a few more minutes to decide. This dramatically changed over the course of the evening. As the place filled up, the 2 (!) waitresses there where running around trying to serve everyone, ending up completely ignoring our table. Staffing the place with more waiting staff would be recommended, as some of us waited for long periods of time to get their glasses refilled and desserts ordered.
The food itself was tasty enough, but nothing spectacular. Among ourselves, we covered a big part of the menu, and everyone liked what they got without blowing anyone's socks off. There is a large selection of both local and foreign beers, and other beverages were also plentiful.
The best thing about this place is without doubt the atmosphere. A big open room with high ceilings, and old fashioned decor making great possibilities for a good night out and friendly chats around the tables. We ended up staying there all night (maybe that was the reason they stopped serving us), and would absolutely recommend everyone to try it out.
