Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Always great beer in this bar, but we tried the burger from SmokeHound for the first time this weekend and thought it was the best burger we had ever had! So fresh and tasty - highly recommended!

Called for a couple of beers on a sunny Sunday afternoon. The beer selection is good, service was quick but only because the place was virtually empty. I would go back but there's a lot of other good places around to choose from.

Great selection of beers and for the wine drinkers, like me, a decent selection of whites that are properly chilled. Staff always friendly, no loud music and great atmosphere.

Great place for a weekend afternoon. Superb cask beers some of the best ive drank in the North West, good craft beers and a load of artisan spirits. The bar staff are absolutely brilliant, welcoming, knowledgeable, chatty and all presented immaculately like in high class restaurants & bars. Best place around for miles in my opinion. Brewery can be seen through the downstairs windows and the upstairs is modern and fresh with a very cool vibe. Loads of outdoor space too. On our visit we stayed a good few hours and ended up sat outside later on. The shelter is heated and has fairy lights which my other half appreciated more than me but really pleasant on a cool evening. I have never reviewed anything but gone to a special effort to rate this place as these guys deserve my praise. Go, just go!!

This has to be THE best brewery bar around. Great beers, great service, friendly staff and even the pies are good. There's always been really nice atmosphere in this place whenever I've been. The outdoor area has been a bonus in the Covid pandemic too

Came for a drink for the first time since lock down. They’ve completely revamped the garden and it’s looking great with lots of space. Staff are brilliant. Good selection of beers. Can’t wait to return!

Fantastic brewery, best keg and craft ale in The north west, hidden away gem. Facilities are top notch with plenty of space outside and inside. Only point I’d make
Is the wooden benches & chairs hurt your bum after a while but saying that it is supposed to be a brewery!
