    I booked a table for 7:30pm and on arrival was informed that the kitchen closed at 8pm on a bank holiday weekend!!!!. This was not clear when booking. Shortly after we were shown to our seats. Some of our party were running a few minutes late and then we were informed that last orders was at 7:45pm which again we were not told when booking. We were advised by a member of staff to text the rest of our party. The whole experince felt rushed and could not get ys out the door quick enough. When booking we were asked are we celebrating a special occasion. Which I replied "yes" we were asked in the app are they any special requests. I did put in a request but both questions were pointless as none were given any attention. From all of our party they felt like it was a smash and grab experience.

    Thank you for your feedback, it was the furthest from our intention to make your party feel rushed. This matter has been elevated to senior management for investigation of our policies and procedures.

    Disappointing trip. We have eaten here multiple times but this trip was a bit of a disaster. Service mishaps meant that we had our meals first. Even before our cutlery or our drinks. After requesting our drinks twice we placed the order again and eventually got them. The food was good but not piping hot. There was no ketchup provided and we gave up asking for assistance. As a local hosting international guests on their last night in Ireland, I was disappointed and embarrassed to have chosen to dine at the Brewery.

    We arrived to a power cut! Staff were readily on hand to update us. The power came on shortly after and it was evident that each member of staff did their upmost to get the show back on the road. Dan showed us to our table and after that, the staff were timely and attentive bringing our food asap. Each dish was delicious! Couldn’t fault any of it. A lovely experience overall. We’ll be back soon!

    Overall a lovely experience. Did sort of expect two slices of meatloaf per serving, one didn’t really cut it. The roast beef needs to be cooked for longer at a lower temperature, it was on the verge of tough and rubbery, no where near melt in your mouth, oh and Horseradish sauce should be served with roast beef.

    The meal was not an enjoyable experience. The fish and chips were oily and we did not get the ribs we ordered and then were questioned rudely by the server. The menu online was not the menu we received and so we were disappointed the chicken platter was not on offer. It’s a lovely place and so disappointing we won’t be back.

    The building is fabulous with wonderful views and lots of parking too. Next time we will do a tour if the distillery and brewery for sure. The staff were really really nice and efficient too. I ate the fish and chips which was superb and came with a small glass of their own beer. We also shared a flight of beer, some great choices. Mother had the calamari which went fine very well. It was a little quiet when we were there, but it was lunchtime in February! Would recommend a detour to here for good, drink and a tour. We will be back.
