Delicious vegan soup. Nice selection of beers and ciders on tap and by the bottle. Friendly staff. Cozy feel. As an outsider, nobody talked to me, but I wasn't made to feel unwelcome either.

Fantastic food, good range of vegan options too as I took my vegan sister there for her birthday. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and it was great value for money.

Brass Monkey is competitively priced, comfortable, always busy and very interesting for people watching. Bar service is always very quick and movies on the projector are a nice touch. Now it seems that they're dog friendly too! Will definitely be back.
