“Good Food, Barmy Presentation”
Reviewed 8 December 2012

This is a very stylish and attractive pub in the grounds of the museum of brewing. The Worthington's beers are excellent. I had a very tasty beef and ale pie, with home made chips and vegetables for about a tenner. There was a little gravy boat with some extra gravy, which was a thoughtful touch. It was all good.

My one and only criticism would be that the pie, vegetables and chips were all served in their own separate bowls, on a trencher, without a plate. Was I supposed to nibble everything separately from its little bowl? Was I supposed to slop everything on to the trencher? Plates were invented for a reason. Jamie Oliver has much to answer for, and this stylistic shambles might be one of his crimes.

“great food and beer”
Reviewed 14 November 2012

food here is lovely, it comes served on cheese boards!!, and is just so good. they also serve beer you can't get in any normal bass/coors pubs, like white shield and winter shield, they have there own micro brewery on site. I had the tap burger, which was hugh, came with chips and homemade coleslaw, my partener had fish and chips which he said the batter was very light and crisp. well worth a visit
