Very good steak, beef and brew infers a relaxed, informal and inexpensive place to eat, the decor also supports this, but this place is pushing on restaurants like hawksmoor in price. Needs to decide which market it’s going for!

Great steaks done simply. Wine and service was excellent. Interior was a little sparse and utalitarian. Great evening.

I have been to Beef & Brew a few times and absolutely love the place. They have got a brilliant early bird menu with hanger steak and chips for £10, which is a real bargain. The early bird menu is available until 7 pm and we were literally there 5 minutes before but were still able to order from it - so fantastic service. Food was very tasty and staff excellent the whole way through so can only recommend this place.

The Chateaubriand was, as usual, excellent. The side dish portions are not that generous given their price, especially the mushrooms which were delicious but only two medium sized mushrooms.
Service is good and very pleasant. So all praisse to them
The real shame are their puddings which are just so limited. Virtually all ice cream!

Had the hanger steak medium rare and found it extremely tough. It was the second time I'd been there and the first time was fantastic so this was disappointing.

The best thing of all about Beef & Brew is the tremendous value, particularly if you eat, as we did, between 6 & 7 pm. The food is excellent, three of us had the very tasty “hanger steak, one veggie burger and one half chicken, with four fries and one chunky chips. All the plates were cleared and pronounced very tasty. We drank wine, beer and lemonade, all reasonably priced. Desserts are not a highlight but the two sorbets were enjoyed. Service was excellent and, as I said, the bill quite exceptional.

Good value for money. The meat is no USDA though, ever so slightly chewy and tougher. Also there was a beer on the board making me think it's on draft and they borught me a can of a beer under a different name which I'd already had before. I don't like canned beer and I would have appreciated to be notified they only do cans. Malbec was far too light of a malbec. The decor is a bit too industrial and scant for me, not very cosy. Everything else was great, great menu, great sides. Decent value.

Amazing food. Maybe you guys should have some walking in tables.I am a restaurant manager, and the amount of people you guys refused on a Tuesday evening was crazy . I understand the tables were reserved but your restaurant looks empty for the time I was there. Just trying to help, looking forward to eat there again soon. Jr.

2 students, I took my boyfriend for his birthday dinner. We had the 10£ deal - he had steak and I had the veggie burger (which was AMAZING!). The chunky chips were also so good. We also got the famous brisket nuggets and gnocci Mac and could not finish - they kindly packaged it to go for us! Finished off with Brewer's mess dessert - honestly it would've been worth it just for that! All of that came to a total of 40£, not bad on a student budget for an occasion. Will definitely be returning! Staff were very friendly too.

Great food, friendly atmosphere and staff. All you could want from a steak and up there with the best steak I’ve eaten in England. Sides also delicious - try broccoli, mushrooms and chips.
Also the brisket jam nuggets were great as an appetiser.
Go or don’t go- more for me!
Def. going back but also will try the Haggerston branch.

Absolutely lovely local gem. I never even liked burgers until I had one of theirs! Staff are friendly, food comes out fast and burgers are to die for. Even the salad side was really tasty, they mixed it with some tasty dressing and caramelized nuts of some sort. Ambiance is perfect for a casual date, very cozy. Prices for gourmet burgers in London aren’t bad either. Also they know how to make an espresso martini!

The food was delicious - I’ve never had a steak as good as the one I had when visiting this restaurant. The sides were delicious too! The staff were really friendly and attentive but there was an incident that let it down - when the waiter was clearing the table, quite a lot blood dripped from the plate and smeared across the table - and onto my Christmas shopping on the floor. The waiter didn’t come back and clean it up, so we were left with blood smeared on the table until we paid and left...although the food was fantastic I wasn’t blown away with the experience.
