Dead Centre is not a faceless corporation…milking the beer industry for all it’s worth. Instead, we’re a tight knit crew that relies on friends, family, colleagues and other breweries to create a product that we can truly be proud of.

Fresh, flavoursome and (wherever possibly) local ingredients are what give our beer it’s character. Cutting corners here is not an option at Dead Centre Brewing. We believe you get out what you put in…so only the best goes in.

    Went in for lunch at 12:30 and only sandwiches available. No hot food till 3pm.Pretty crap really as it looked like a nice place

    Dead Centre BrewingResponded on 9 August 2022Hi Gary. Very sorry to hear you were so disappointed. Our sandwiches are all served hot and we offer a variety of fries during lunch service too. Obviously, this is not what you wanted or expected, so we can only apologise for that. We hope to see you again soon.

    Had our 1st poor experience at Dead Centre. They had run out of Seeking Sunshine, they also ran out of wings. This is understandable for a Sunday of a Bank Holiday and the staff were good at explaining why they had run out. The real disappointment was when the food arrived. I had ordered veg Nachos which had no guacamole but the general standard of the dish was so bad I sent them back. The pizza took forever and was burnt but at that stage we were so hungry we just ate it, paid and left. We will be back as we love this place, the floor staff were great as usual but it seemed the kitchen team were having a poor night and there was a noticeable atmosphere coming from the kitchen which could be felt by the customers.

    Dead Centre BrewingResponded on 2 August 2022Hi Billy. So disappointed to read your review, but we do completely understand. Unfortunately, between sick staff and shattering stones in our pizza oven (that's a whole other story) we did have a very difficult service on Sunday. We understood we were able to explain the issues to all guests in plenty of time, but clearly that was not the case for your party. Sincere apologies. We look forward to seeing you again and regaining your support.

    Over 45 mins waiting for the food?? It was a pizza not Michelin starred food !!

    Dead Centre BrewingResponded on 28 July 2022Hi. We can only apologise for the wait you experienced here. Unfortunately on busy nights, as we hand stretch and top each pizza (nothing is par-baked or machine stretched), wait times can stretch to this length. The floor staff should 100% have made you aware of this before you were seated and we're very disappointed to hear this didn't happen. Sincere apologies.

    This is probably a place in Athlone that I appreciate the most as it's spacious and rather modern looking. The beer selection is great especially while in other places you're limited to Guinness which I don't like, Coors and something else with little character. Since we're still living with COVID, i don't exactly like the fact the servers talk straight to my face when they're 50 cm away. Given they approach ever customer the same way, that makes me feel uneasy.

    Utter chaos. I have never walked into a more dysfunction and unorganised business. We had an 8.45 booking. On entering, a large glass breakage was being swept up. There was an abundance of free tables, despite your booking app indicating the earliest booking for 2 was 8.45 pm. We were then told food was finished, despite coming to your restaurant for ….. well….. food! When this was pointed out to your server, food became available again. We ordered 2 pizzas, which seemed to have shrunk since the last time we ate at Dead Centre. We had one drink with the pizza, and left. Your restaurant needs to appoint a competent management team urgently or it will be closed within months. It’s in a great location and has massive potential but it is currently mediocre and chaotic, and will be closed before Christmas in my opinion, if remedial action isn’t taken immediately.

    First time in DCB and impressed with both food and service. One point on note was the person who appeared to be the manager. Very much out of sync with the rest of the staff. Was very much about getting us to our table very quickly without any form of engagement or welcome. All about getting as many people in and out. Should reappraise his approach as it lets down the rest of the staff..

    Great atmosphere, wait staff were lovely, beer on tap was awesome (We tried their stout, their pale ale, their IPA and a cheeky number called Is This Pop Art?) Prices were reasonable considering the city aspect. If we could be a bit picky, we would have appreciated knowing the prices of alcohol upfront as we didn’t see them listed on their menus. Nonetheless, great experience and would probably go again.

    Helpful pleasant staff very tasty food great beers. It would lift the dining experience if food was not served on plastic trays - would strongly recommend use of plates, even rustic enamelled plates. Also the addition of a feature electric fireplace at the far end wall would be lovely. Otherwise I couldn't fault it.

    Good food and drinks. Service was patchy. Sat outside and had to ask for menus, then had to ask for our order to be taken. Apparently outdoor tables don't get table service, which is disappointing. When the order arrived,the food was good. Had to ask twice for cutlery and napkins. Overall, not bad, but drinks and/or food service being made available at the outdoor tables would be an improvement.

    We tried out the Wing Wednesday offer & we were not disappointed. We chose 4 of the 16 varieties of wings available & they were delicious. We added dressed fries & a pizza for our son. And to top it all off, it was 2 for 1 offer on all portions of wings. The service was super, we had a very attentive staff member, who made sure to check back during our meal, to see if we needed more drinks, or anything else. Would highly recommend to others & we'll definitely be back again.

    We are regulars to Dead Center. The atmosphere, food, and selection of drinks are just top class. Best of all the team is so professional, you are never left too long and always made me feel so welcome. Thanks to Petra and Shane especially who looked after me and hubby on Friday evening. We had a great experience.
