“To many staff not enough customers.”
Reviewed 30 August 2013 via mobile

How not to run a place. 3 chefs 1 waitress 2 bar staff for 10 people. I live in plymouth and my local pub does 50-60 covers every day and runs on 3 staff. Never visit again was so much better when it was Bass Museum.

“Very poor experience after exceptional museum tour.”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

Running out of time, but will simply say that they need to sort out the Chef in this pub. Was unable to provide anything other than the sandwich menu because the Chef was late. This seems a usual occurrence at this pub.

In addition. The barman/manager seemed confused when asked for a 'light ale recommendation'; he obviously doesn't know much about beer.

Finally the ambiance is poor. Though the walls have appropriate paraphernalia the 90s dance music was a little out of place. And by a little, I mean totally inappropriate. It was also almost uncomfortably cold.

I truly hope they fix the problems here as it is a disgrace to the good work done next door at the Museum.

“Great food and beers!”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

Wet day out in Burton, went to the National Brewery Centre then into the brewery tap,(on the same ground). Beer selection was excellent and well kept. The menu was medium sized and quite varied for us meaty/fishy folk, limited for veggies though, (who cares?!). Three of us shared a platter for 2 to share as a starter and was impressed with all of the items; ribs, potted salt beef, beer batter prawns, dips and awesome FAT chips! Mains were impressive fayre too, ma had the brunch which included local(ish) sausage and bacon, field mushroom and a huge roasted beef tomato among other things. Dad went for bangers and mash, again local sausage and creamy mash, although not really complaining but menu stated champ mash, all doused in a rich onion gravy. I went for the steak and White Shield ale pie with Kibbled(?) potatoes and ale gravy, absolutely delicious, rich pie filling with massive chunks of meat, crisp yet soft pastry, a miniature pint glass of ale gravy and it came with chips, again, not really complaining but it said served with Kibbled potatoes. The chips, i have to say, are some of the best I've had so no way were they going back!! Very generous vegetable accompaniments, well presented and piping hot. The chef needs to pay a little more attention to his/her menu items but it was a very good eating experience.
