    The food was absolutely disgusting. What a fall from grace. It’s been 18 months since eating here but it has deteriorated massively. Our kids and us could barely eat any of the food it was so awful.

    From the very happy greeting at the door, the food & great service, we were very happy to be sitting on the deck for lunch on a lovely day. The fact we could order & pay whilst sitting at our table was a big plus too. Can’t wait to go back.

    Had our visit here booked for a while and we’re told no service outside on such a beautiful day so were seated inside. Then others started arriving and outside all of a sudden opened up. Food was pretty average, the specials prawn pizza had tiny prawns on it and not many. There was also no soap in the toilets.

    Bright BreweryResponded 1 day ago

    Hi Danjo - Apologies with the confusion with your seatings, we are currently training over 30 new staff members for the busy summer months and are doing our best to get everyone trained to follow the same processes and procedures. I have passed your review on to our kitchen team. In the future, if you are unhappy with your meal or soap, please do not hesitate to let a staff member know. We will happily resolve the issue on the day, to ensure you leave feeling satisfied. Cheers!

    Food was really disappointing. They were under the pump busy but nothing we ordered was very nice. Under cooked chips. Flavourless pizza. The pork was awful. We have been a few times before when less busy and it was great. Staff and atmosphere great. Quite costly to be left disappointed.

    The staff were very obliging with our 12 month old. When there was an issue with our gift voucher, they resolved it without issue. Food was great on the whole, with the duck salad the standout though the chicken was dry in the chicken burger.

    as there was only 2 of us the 6 wings,ribs ,pork belly chorizo chips and salads was to much for us perhaps a smaller serving for 2 on this particular dish would be a better way to go the meal was great just to much.

    Pizza wasn’t very nice. The fire breather was soggy, not spicy and it tasted like the base was from a pre made frozen packet. Calamari was great. The smoke salmon salad was over dressed. We had gone to the restaurant the night before and the food was great that’s why we ate here again but this time round it wasn’t that good. The waiters and restaurant atmosphere was great.

    Bright BreweryResponded on 9 November 2021

    Hi - We are disappointed to hear you did not enjoy your food while visiting our brewery. Your feedback has been raised with our kitchen team for their awareness. However, we can assure you that our pizza bases are made fresh daily and 100% do not come frozen. All ingredients in our kitchen are sourced from locally and sustainably. In the future, if you are unhappy with your meal, please do not hesitate to let a staff member know, to ensure you leave feeling satisfied. We hope to see you again!
