Visited as part of a tour of the National Brewery Centre.We had a prebooked meal and sampled four real ales.We went as a real ale group and this was an outing.
The food was adequate but nothing special.The service was good and the staff friendly

“Marquee Party”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

Held my parents Golden Wedding celebrations in the marquee and I cannot fault the staff from booking the party the year before to on the night. The buffet was excellent, my parents had plenty to choose from when deciding what they wanted and the staff created a real wow factor on the buffet table. They let us go early in the day to set up a photo montage which was massive and when I was having a near meltdown when trying to get it stay up the catering manager Ellie saved the day. Ellie is lovely and made sure everything was as it should be, she was still there when we arrived for the party. She stayed until all the food was out and then she handed me over to Liam who was looking after us for the rest of the evening, he was great too. Neither were intrusive just around if we needed them.

On the whole everybody had a wonderful evening and parents loved every moment of it. Would recommend this venue for any special celebration.

I have also eaten in the restaurant on a few occasions and have always found the food to be plentyful and tasty. I also recently attended a 'Faulty Towers' experience there too, which again was real good fun and good food and service.

“Excellent food, excellent service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

We often visit the Brewery Tap for a drink or Sunday carvery as a family and it never disappoints! The food and service are excellent and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. We had our daughter's christening party in the conservatory recently and all of the staff did us proud! We wouldn't hesitate in recommending the venue to friends and family and will come back again and again!
