My partner and I decided to try this place for food as we had only previously popped in for drinks. Where do I start? The place wasn't busy but 2 tables next to the one we chose were covered in plates and glasses. Our table was cleared but not cleaned and the carpet and seat were also covered in food debris. Had there been a food fight in this corner? The waitress was very helpful when we ordered food and asked for our table to be cleaned asap. Table duly cleaned by a young man more interested in his reflection in the pictures than making sure the clearing up was done, perhaps he needs to get glasses as he made no move to clear the 2 messy tables, they were still messy an hour and a half later when we left! We ordered the combo starter with extra wings and mushrooms. This was served promptly and it was delicious. We ordered the signature apple crumble with toffee sauce and custard. A waitress came to our table and said the sweets would be about 15 mins as the kitchen was busy. After half an hour we enquired about our puddings. Gok Wan managed to stop preening long enough to find out for us. He returned with our dessert orders. Yeuch!!!! They had obviously been left on the side and forgotten about as the custard was cold with a skin over it. The toffee sauce had split and soaked into the crumble that had soaked into the apple sauce. A cold gloopy mess, inedible. We will not be recommending this place or returning.

The manager needs to get out on the restaurant floor and make sure the staff are doing their jobs. Where are the secret shoppers when you need them?

It was a Friday evening and a busy one. Nevertheless I do not expect to stand waiting in a queue for 15 minutes to order food and drink at the bar. There were only two staff on bar duty.

We went for the Buffet "all you can eat" option which looked good value but turned out not to be as the food was not hot enough and was of poor quality. You wouldn't want "all you could eat" of it!

Breakfast next day (and subsequent days) was spent at Morrisons store cafe in Dumbarton - cheap and well prepared.

We stay at Premier Inns quite a lot but the Brewers Fayre arm is definitely letting them down.

We stayed at the premier inn. Next door and had an evening meal an,d breakfast in this premise both meals were great and the breakfast I must say was exceptional as we're the staff. My young son who loves bacon had a great time ordering his meal of just bacon and beans my daughter loved going up to pick out individual breakfast items from the cold counter. We are hoping to stay at the premier again next month and to have a meal at the same place. Well worth it. The staff were great

Had dinner here after our arrival at adjacent Premier Inn. Busy Sunday afternoon service and we were told there would be a 30 mins delay on food .In reality it was far less than this so a nice surprise. We had grilled Salmon salad and Beefburger with cheese and bacon topping. This was followed by Oreo cookie pie and signature lemon meringue pie and drinks. Food tasted good and service friendly and helpful.
