Very good food which is at a great price. Staff are very friendly. I like the place because it’s not pretentious. Looking forward to going back soon.

The staff were good but we all had burgers and they were pretty awful. We asked for as medium rare as they could allow but they were dry and over cooked and the bun was too messy and the bacon was soft not crispy. Very disappointing considering the quality of burgers available these days. The sides were ok.

I would (and do), but service we received was very poor, a surprise to me as I eat here relatively frequently.

Bad experience at Beef and Brew . The service was really really poor, long wait, no smile and the waitress didn’t even know which beer she was bringing at the table. The food was really disappointing. We were not asked if we wanted a desert so had no chance to order one .
Would not recommend this restaurant

Nice burgers as always but it feels like maybe its time to add another couple of burger choices.. Chicken maybe or lamb. I like the brisket starter which would be nice with salad as a main.

Looked lovely and had a great vibe. However steak was overcooked. I asked for med-rare and it came out cremated. Sent it back and same happened again. Very

Visited on weekend with a friend. Whilst the cost of the food was good value I feel the drinks were not very good. Also the steak was not cooked to order and when we challenged the waiter he tried to palm us off by saying it was only over cooked around the edges however the steak was well done rather then medium rare as was requested. Any other restaurant would have apologised and given us another but we were made to feel guilty. Unfortunately we will not be visiting again.

Amazing steaks and such great value! Only issue is that it's really noisy and the chairs don't have caps on them to stop them scrapping the floor which is so loud. The waitresses needed to speak up, couldn't hear them at all!

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!

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