Brewers Fayre Restaurant Review


On Saturday we went to our local (ish) Brewers Fayre restaurant to review their new menu. When we arrived we went to the small desk and waited to be seated. Not long after, the manager arrived and took us to our reserved table. On our way he asked us if we had been before and if we knew how everything worked and because we had been before there was no need for him to explain to us as we already knew. We were seated and told to order drinks and food at the bar and if we needed anything, just to give him or another member of staff a shout.

There was a good choice of starters for kids and adult menus. We chose nachos and cheese for Elliw and my partner and I shared a 'Combo Feast' for £8.49. You could spend and extra £2.99 for some chicken wings but we decided not too. When I went up to order the manager was helpful and told us our starter would take around 10 minutes and he brought our drinks over. I had a bottle of water, Elliw had a fruit shoot and my partner had a re-fill drink which is only £2.50 and you can fill up your decent sized glass as many times as you like.



The starters arrived less than 10 minutes. The Combo Feast which has garlic bread, onion rings, celery sticks, crispy king prawns, garlic breaded mushrooms, crispy chicken goujons and was served with garlic mayonnaise, BBQ sauce, and sweet chilli sauce. Elliw also took a few onion rings and a garlic slice too. The size is perfect for at least two or three people if you are just looking for a small starter.


After we finished our starters one of the staff came to clear our table and said the main meal will be served soon. The main was delivered within 5 minutes, which was a little too quick for me and my partner as we do like to have at least a 10 minute break, however with Elliw playing up quite a bit it was pretty handy that food was served pretty quickly.

For our mains my partner chose a siroloin steak with peppercorn sauce for £13.99 and I chose a beef lasagne which comes with a side salad and 2 garlic baguette slices for £8.49. We chose the Poppin' chicken with chips and beans for Elliw. We also ordered a bowl of chips (£2.29), garlic bread with cheese (£2.49) and a bowl of onion rings.

The beef lasagne was really tasty along with the side salad and it's dressing. The portion was much bigger than I thought and I would say it was worth the price. My partner really enjoyed his steak and it was cooked perfectly. Elliw didn't eat much of her food but that's normal because she is a really fussy eater and she was mainly eating the garlic bread with cheese that we had ordered as a side order. Elliw had spotted a balloon and shouted that she wanted one. One member of staff, a woman, came to the table and started chatting to Elliw and told her if she ate a few more chips then she would go and get one. She had been round at our table passing asking a few times if everything was ok and telling us how well behaved Elliw had been, which was lovely. A few minutes later she had gone to get Elliw her balloon and Elliw was happy and ate a few more chips before pudding.


There was many things to choose from on both menus. The kids menu was bright and colourful with pictures of the food which is really helpful for the child to choose what they want or fancy. There is a great deal with the children's menu as you can see in the above photo. The adult menu also had a big choice of main meals. There are great deals to be found on the back of the menu. Which you can see here:

 
Again the staff cleared the table and within 10 minutes our pudding was served. I really couldn't wait wait for our pudding. We chose the sharing fondue which was absoloutely delicious. On the big square plate was some waffle pieces, strawberries, mini doughnuts, mini chocolate brownies and some marshamallows with chocolate fudge and caramel sauces for dips. Elliw had a the doughnuts and sauce which she didn't eat - as she wanted to eat ours. Me and my partner weren't keen on the doughnuts but everything else was lovely and really worth the price of £5.99.
 


 
Overall: We were greeted with a warm welcome from the lovely manager, David. We had some delicious food as you can see from the photos above. We were asked a few times by staff if we were ok and if our meals were ok - which they were. One member of staff (a woman) was very friendly and welcoming with Elliw. She and the manager were very helpful if I was stuck for something such as when to order the puddings and if I needed to pay (discount code used) at the bar at time of ordering or after. The menu was fantastic with great deals through out the week and a great variety of choice. The portions were great for the prices and the wait between foods wasn't long at all which to some can be too quick and others can be great.
 
We had a great experience there and I can not wait to visit there again soon. I would deffintley recommend you to visit there if you can. The new menu is great and great value for money. You won't go from there disappointed.
 
 
I apologise for the low quality photos. There wasn't much natural light coming through where we were sitting so I was unable to get some high quality photos - plus my camera is on its way out!
 
* We were given a discount of £50 to spend at Brewers Fayre. We paid petrol there and an extra £5.63. We were given a discount code to write an honest review. All words and photos are my own, as always.

  5. The shading pudding looks lovely! I'm like you I like the time between courses to have a breather but it's better not too when we have the boys in tow!

  6. Oh that big portion of lasagne looks delicious. I know what you mean, I don't like to rush meals too and like a bit of a breather between courses but sometimes, when you have little ones with you, I suppose it can work in your favour to have the food served a bit quicker.
