Brewery
Dead Centre is not a faceless corporation…milking the beer industry for all it’s worth. Instead, we’re a tight knit crew that relies on friends, family, colleagues and other breweries to create a product that we can truly be proud of.

Fresh, flavoursome and (wherever possibly) local ingredients are what give our beer it’s character. Cutting corners here is not an option at Dead Centre Brewing. We believe you get out what you put in…so only the best goes in.

Noise level was energetic as there was a live DJ which was brilliant as it really created a wonderful atmosphere. Staff and food were excellent. They were also very friendly and accommodating to our 8 months old girl. Couldn't recommend their brunch enough.

It was an absolute joke! Waiting ages on our drinks! Our starter arrived before our drinks! Eventually we had to ask one of the staff about our drinks! We had both ordered pizza! Again waiting and waiting and then a staff member came down and told us that the pizza oven had broken! Now we were sitting beside the kitchen and no pizzas left that kitchen in the time that we were there! I am sure that staff were fully aware of the problem ages before they took our order! She recommended the turkey burger so I ordered that! What came was a tiny tiny burger slathered in tomato ketchup! It was absolutely awful! All in all my dining experience here was terrible

Hi Bernie, This is very disappointing to read. I must take all your criticism on my own chin. We did indeed suffer a breakdown on the night you visited. The staff very quick to bring this to my attention. Unfortunately I misdiagnosed the problem as a tripped switch when the issue was in fact a blown fuse. I can only imagine your disappointment and can't apologise enough. If you'd like to discuss the visit further, please feel free to contact me personally on 0906420883. So sorry again, Liam.

Forgot one of our meals. Disappointing that the server didn’t acknowledge it had been forgotten as it came out 25 minutes after the other three meals with very little apology.

Great food but poor service and table of 5 just sat at 2 high top barrel tables that group had to push together to be all seated together. Asked if we could be moved to another table and were told we couldn't as there was a group booking and that the restaurant was fully book. Other areas of restaurant were also free but were told we couldn't be moved. Upon leaving Dead Centre Brewing all available tables that were empty when we asked to move remained empty. Restaurant was not full at the time between 5pm-6.45pm on Saturday 4th Dec, 2021. When booking was made, request for a low table was also made but not given upon arrival.

Love the restaurant and have been there a number of times before. Never have had an experience like this previous

As always a lovely place for food.. staff brilliant and extremely friendly. Can be a bit pricey just for pizza etc. Minerals not worth buying €3 for a mixer bottle.. otherwise we like coming here.

Quite drafty if sitting close to the doors looking onto the river, even when they are closed. But really the exit door out by the river should not be used on a cold and windy evening, every time these opened a freezing gust of wind came in and cooled an already not warm enough restaurant. Pizza is served on a fairly naff black plastic trays with a sheet of paper underneath, which tends to become entangled with the pizza. Lastly, the alcohol free beer option wasn't great at all. However, my friend said his craft beer was nice.

Considering COVID awareness, being new to town, it took me a while before I visited.. but it was totally worth it. The interior is great, cozy and earthly, I loved it the tables were not crammed together. I loved the variety of beers. While I went with a snack that did not impress me much, I am going with a pizza next time. So far I know it looks real good :) I would say this is my favourite place in Athlone.
