Great off of £10 for steak and chips between 6-7pm well worth the money! Delicious food and wine

Service was very fast, welcoming, and attentive. The steaks were ok and the chips were good. The burgers looked good and they have a good happy hour deal, I'd come back to try the burger.

We had dinner here over the weekend, service was absolutely amazing, the staff are very friendly and chatty and our waitress couldn’t do enough for us. Food was unreal, as a vegetarian I thought the gnocchi with jalapeños was amazing! My girlfriend had the hangar steak which she said was incredible. Hope to come back soon, great place!

This was the worst meal I've had in a long time. The waiter recommended the sirloin, which, when it arrived, was strange tasting and so overly-chewy it was impossible to eat. When I called the waiter over to send it back, he apologised, saying 4-5 other diners had also complained about this cut of meat - so why had he then recommended it? They replaced it with a burger, which was an overcooked thin grey pattie served on a bun smothered with mayo and cheese, even though I had asked for no mayo - there was so much grease I had to wash my hands twice. My friend's chicken tasted watery and he felt ill a couple of hours later. Terrible restaurant - don't go there!!

The steak was delicious, cooked perfectly medium rare, and a great value! Loved the chips too. However, my dining companions ordered burgers and unfortunately the rules around beef having to be well done meant the patty was way too dry. I would certainly recommend the steak over the burger for that reason.

The food was good, but at one point all the waitresses just disappeared 🤷🏽‍♀️. Not really professional.
We wanted to ask for some sauce for the steak but when she came back was too late. We ate already.

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!

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.
