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.

Unfortunately our visit was very poor. Food was not what was expect from a ‘gastro’ pub. Service and resolving problems with the food was awful. We ordered the sardine tempura as it sounded different . It was very oily and not good. Batter was not a light tempura coating. The real issues came when we ordered 2 x steak sandwiches. The meat was so tough and gristly that we were unable to chew. When we returned the dishes we were told that they would take it up with the suppliers. We asked if there was any remedy and we were told no (no discount, apology, alternative option etc). So after spending over £30 on food that was un-edible we will not be returning to this pub with very average food.

Will not be visiting again Not dog friendly as advertised. Food also not as advertised. Meat overcooked despite being advertised as pink, even the children in our party commented on the poor standard of the food. Very disappointing.

I would strongly advise you ask for the soft drinks prices! Tiny bottle of coke £4.10! Seriously, where do they get their prices from. I have always eaten in the Two Brewers, this visit was my worst experience. The chips were solid inside, very undercooked. What a shame, it seems maybe new ownership or chief. I do t know. So disappointed. Two adults, two child dined today. Over £106.00 pounds for lunch.

I don’t know what’s happening to my favourite eating place. Our last three visits have been very disappointing. Burgers that promise r everything came up with just the buns d patty of meat . No salad , no trimmings - they ran out . ! No apology or refund Veg boiled to a mush Just a total shade down the scale of the standard of food, Welcoming place , great setting, fog friendly , but the catering standard is so low now. I won’t take my visitors there any more .

Very disappointing lunch yesterday afternoon at The Two Brewers. There were six of us. The service was appalling. We did not have starters. The main courses came out one meal at a time with a ten minute gap between each. No cutlery was supplied until the last person was served!! My cousin was refunded the cost of her meal but we were all very disappointed. This venue urgently need to train their very young staff members. They really had no clue that diners need cutlery, napkins, all food served at the same time and plates cleared when they have finished. Having to ask four times for napkins after eating our food with our fingers is disgraceful. Sadly we do not recommend this venue.

We hosted our wedding reception in a private room which was perfect for our needs. My family are food snobs and the food did not disappoint. The food all came together, it was fresh and delicious. The cost was very reasonable for the quality of food that was provided. The service was excellent and we were impeccably looked after. The function organiser was attentive, organised and was easy to communicate with. She met all of our needs which contributed to an amazing day, we shall be returning for more delicious meals.

I visited here with my husband and his parents and our little dog. We were left waiting upon entering and no one came to seat us. Just staff staring at us and avoiding us. We had to go and find someone (we had booked). Once being sat, we were on a nice table but it was so crammed to the next one that the waiter kept banging into my disabled mother in laws chair every time she walked past. We ordered the bread with oil and balsamic ‘while you wait’ plate but this came out at the same time as the starters which was a bit pointless. My FIL ordered the king prawn cocktail but there was not one king prawn in it. We mentioned this to our server who came over and told us that the manager would come and talk to us. No one came. I thought maybe that they’d have just removed it from the bill, nope! Then the main courses came out apart from my FIL pie. It must have been 5 minutes before his arrived which feels like forever whilst you’re waiting for his to arrive before you start eating. My husband and I had the lamb roast dinner which was average to say the least. It doesn’t mention that it comes with Yorkshire puddings (whereas the beef roast states that it does) so we didn’t think they’d be part of the dinner so we ordered two as a side to come with our roasts but the actual roast came with them so we’d ordered two for no reason and didn’t end up eating them. We had no food check back. We had to keep calling people over for drinks as no one bothered trying to upsell. For desert we ordered two scoops of ice cream. £5 for two tiny (smaller than a ping pong ball) scoops. The coffee was vile. Over steamed milk so it was burnt. No table water offered yet the tables next to us were all offered it. Just rubbish. You need to retrain your staff. I’ve worked in hospitality all my life and if I were you I’d be embarrassed. The manager needs to step up and deal with complaints at the time rather than ignore us and let it come to this. I did email you privately through your website but it’s been a week with no reply so that’s why I wrote a review. Bad service. Average food. Won’t be back. We paid over £250 for a pretty rubbish meal for Four.

We eat at the Two Brewers frequently and the last time the service was fairly slow and portions were small. Unusual to our historical experience so we returned for an evening meal. It was busy and we thought service would be slow again looking at the staffing volumes. We waited for the service about 8mins after being seated for drinks request and then starter order. Shucked wings turned up as a starter with one being fresh out of the fridge whilst the others were cooked. They were taken away with an apology and we received a fresh and Abundant replacement which were delicious. From that point the food was amazing and the team couldn’t do enough to ensure we (and the other customers) had a great evening. Back to great customer service, great portions and superb food. Highly recommend and thank you to Vanita our waitress who really showed fantastic customer service and corrected the minor challenges in exactly the right way. We will be back and thank you for renewing our love for this great restaurant.

My partner and I arrived at noon, which is the opening time. As I had a hospital appointment just after 1pm, I asked the manager whether we would be finished around that time and he said yes. We ordered our food at around 12.10pm which was two steak burgers. The food didnt arrive until 1.00pm, which is 50 minutes after we placed our ordered. I complained with the waitress and she didnt say anything. Therefore I had to eat as much as I could and leave the rest as I didnt want to miss my hospital appointment. So, you should allow about 1 hour before you get your food. The food in itself was very good, but the service its just too slow, considering we were there at opening time, when the restaurant was empty of customers.

Six of us had booked for an evening meal & sat down around 7pm. Our meals arrived around 8.30pm. After having our starters, 10 minutes later one of our party found out their order (the chicken pie) was not available, and an alternative order was needed. Ten minutes later, this happened for a second time, and comically a third time ten minutes later. This likely contributed to the delayed serving. To our surprise, the chicken pie then arrived as opposed to the alternative meal. However, of the originally ordered meals, one arrived with fries as opposed to the requested chunky chips; a couple of the meals were dry, likely sat waiting while our alternative meals were prepared. Throughout this, there was no apology from staff around the delay. When the bill arrived, there was no concession and 10% was added; when we didn’t pay the service charge we were questioned as to why not. The meals which arrived fresh (the chicken pie, fish & chips) were tasty, hence the two star review, and the price for food and drink was reasonable. Hopefully it was just an off night for service, but an apology would’ve gone a long way.

Average quality lunch but surprised in these times that for the hot drinks there was no plant based alternatives to milk. Asked for a soya based coffee and was given told the only alternative to regular milk was semi skimmed. If you are lactose intolerant I would suggest you avoid here until they get up to date with this.

My family and I came for a meal at lunchtime. We had our dog with us, and so we'd booked a table in the bar. The service was really friendly and efficient. All our meals were cooked well and were really tasty. We also ordered our dog some food off the Dog Menu, which she loved! It was busy so we're glad we booked and it was a lovely friendly atmosphere. Would definitely come again.

A cute little pub. We dinned in the restaurant area as we didnt want to be around the dog friendly area. Our host/waitress Rutha looked after us and gave exceptional service. She made the experience great. Sunday roast was tasty too! Little bit on the pricy end but was worth it.

Came here with friends for a catch up. In spite of living near I don't really use this pub. The only reason being that it can be very busy and sometimes it can be very loud on a weekend. Nonetheless I fancied a local night out so booked and went along on the weekend. One thing I would say is that the food here is always excellent. I had the buttermilk burger and had salad instead of chips. Burger was huge! with two big fillets of chicken. Salad was lovely also. My friend said that her meal was also lovely. It was unusually quiet when we went (not that I was complaining). Personally I find that this pub is very expensive for what you get. (Perroni £6.00), the most I pay anywhere is £5.00. I used to use this pub years ago and even when it first had its upgrade (which is stunning) and have seen the prices rise and rise. Chicken burger and small salad £17.00! I know that we are in a cost of living but I still think that jacking up the prices and then adding a further 10% service charge is a bit extreme (I was never aware that they added this before, maybe its something new). I personally do not approve of service charges and prefer to just tip for the service that I receive. The mini pud and coffee is £7.95 which again I consider quite expensive. The coffee is £4 odd whereas most chain restaurants its around £3.00. Our waitress was lovely and very very attentive (Chloe). Lovely young lady and could not do enough. I have always found all of the staff here to be really lovely. I will come back again as I love the ambience and the staff. The food as I say is very high quality but at the end of the day it is a pub/restaurant so I personally think the high prices are unnecessary.
