Yet another fantastic visit with outstanding service, amazing food and the warmest of welcome. From the moment you arrive nothing is ever to much trouble. Sally, Andy and of course Les, you guys are the best and I would highly recommend the Brewers to everyone as simply, Shaftesbury's finest

I love this place! You're made so welcome, the selection of drinks would satisfy the fussiest of drinkers, the staff are so helpful, polite and efficient, and as for the food... the menu is really very, very good. As a veggie I sometimes struggle in pubs to find a decent meal that doesn't involve goats' cheese and caremellised onions, but... More

I am really sorry that you had a disappointing experience with us but a little surprised that you gave us such a poor review when you never actually ate or had a drink with us . My father who is the most friendly of gentleman simply informed you that you could take the wine with you if you did not... More

We visited with a 7 and 9 year old for dinner and were very pleased with the whole experience. Kids were entertained outside in the garden by playing on the climbing frame whilst we waited for the food. The food choices were great and the burgers went down very well! The staff were very considerate of our dietary requirements and... More

We visited the two Brewers for the second time hoping the Sunday Lunch would be better than the first, as we wanted to make a party booking. But left decidering not to do so. The Pub it's self has a lovely spacious bar and dining room which we liked, and some nice beers. However, the advert says Traditional Sunday Roast,... More

Thank you for your mainly positive review and comments although I do find it a little harsh that you have entitled your review as disappointing when your only complaints were that the gravy was not what you thought to be traditional and the food portions too large. Our home-made gravy is made from beef bone stock and veg cooked over... More

Wonderful fully attentive, warm and friendly staff. Food was served hot and in very good time too. The staff could not do more for us . A cosy welcoming pub with a range of good food a menu covering a good selection of foods. Could not recommend enough if you are visiting for the day or a short break.

Ye Olde Two Brewers has always been a favourite local of mine, but since these guys have taken over, it has got so much better. Delicious food, and such a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. They were hugely accommodating when we asked if they could put on a BBQ for 50 of us the day after our wedding. They went out... More
