Had dinner twice in two days as I was staying next door at the Premier Inn. It was very busy but the staff did a sterling job of keeping all the punters happy. The food was decent and wholesome and not bad at all and i will go back when next in the area.

On a budget, tight for time, want some cheap food, this is the place for you. Staff were lovely and the food just average, but to be honest I didn't really expect anything else.

I went with my husband and our large group of friends. The food and customer service has greatly improved since my last visit over 2 years ago. I would now recommend Brewers Fayre to other friends and family. The staff were all very efficient with their duties, vast improvement.

As a group of ten in what appeared to be not a busy time I was surprised by the poor service received. Different members of the group ordered there food separately but all at the same time, in fact half the group had the buffet and so did not need to be catered for. One member ordered fish which was... More

This is much the same as all Brewers Fayre, predictable menu, ok for families etc., but the service in this one was really slow, and in one case, the waitress forgot a couple altogether! (They walked out) Food is okay, and if course, very reasonably priced, but my lasagne was micro-waved to a frazzled, the salad drenched in a grey... More

We chose to have the 2 meals for £10 or so deal- we were glad that we had not paid full price as the food was not great. The food was only Luke warm and it took a fairly long time to arrive- as did the drinks! We were advised that there was an issue with the cold drinks machine... More
