A regular visitor but this time the family accompanied us. Weather was poor (strong, cold, wind and raining) but seats were found for us inside and the overhead heaters turned on. Even the grandchildren were happy! As always, the staff were great and we had a good time. The day was made even better because our daughter paid the bill! Thanks Beak, much appreciated.

We really like this place and are repeat customers, often bringing guests, but on this occasion the food was poor (which is not really the Brewery’s fault). The pork dish was bland and the vegetarian dish was very dry and lacking in flavour. We will return - just not when they are the food stall.

Good beer and a nice ambiance. Slightly disappointed by the food but all in all pretty good. The outside Terrance was very nice with good heaters.

Either the speaker treble is too harsh or music too loud for the number of people present. Hard on the ears at times (not Sharon's music, just the noise quality/level!).

Beak is always great, however we booked a table specifically for the food offering but when we arrive it was something different. Its a shame we weren’t contacted to check if we still wanted to come

We had a Pizza and it was very tasty, hot and delicious. The staff here are friendly and helpful. It was early evening so it was quiet but I imagine that it has a really good ambience when there are more people there. Something very different and we will definitely go again.

An enjoyable evening with food provided by TinyTai. Good beer but service rather slow, couldn't keep up with my moderate consumption! A nice atmosphere and I will go again.

This is not our first visit to the Beak brewery and won’t be our last. It was only the food on this occasion that was a big disappointment. Basically a small burger with a couple of pieces of lettuce in a bun with a small portion of frozen chips for £8. Previous street food vendors have been excellent.

I love the ever rotating food offer. It's great to be able to eat out affordably. The wine is fantastic as well as the wonderful array of beers. I have one problem and that's that my husband is a bitter fan so it would be great if there was just one bitter on tap for the stuck in the muds!

We had a lovely evening as always with friends. The service is always good and the staff are friendly. The food was ready quickly but nothing special. It filled a hole and stopped us getting too drunk!

I booked the table because The Kernel brewery is one of my favourites and this was a ‘tap takeover’. On Twitter Beak listed all of the beers that would be in this weekend and I was looking forward to trying them. Unfortunately not all of them were on. I’d have to be able to re-visit tonight to sample them all and I can’t really do that. Shame

What a lovely place - Beak Taproom! I’m not much of a pub person, but the airiness, friendliness and good beer at Beak makes it a joy to visit. The street food is excellent and the view of the Cliffe is breathtaking, especially at sunset. Best of all is the service - friendly, attentive and enthusiastic about the Beak Brewery beers, and the other products.
