We were really looking forward to a nice dinner here after checking the menu online. While the menu did have limited vegetarian options, we saw at least 2 main courses we could have. Once seated and having ordered our drinks, we were told there was no vegetarian main courses left so had to have chips. We also paid about £3 each for a sides of ‘beer vegetables’ which turned out to be tiny bowls of slightly vinegary raw vegetables. 2 out of 5 of us were vegetarian, and another of our party had allergies which meant she sticks to a vegan diet. In a place like this it’s pretty shocking that you can’t cater for vegetarians, and didn’t even offer any compensation or apologies for this. What’s more the service that we did get was extremely slow and haphazard and the waiter even completely forgot one of our drinks and one of the dishes we were able to order. The food we did receive was average at best and overpriced. Sad to say we won’t be returning.

Friendly atmosphere with a relaxing and rustic feel. Food was delicious and good value. Staff were lovely. First visit was a week ago with six other people who all enjoyed the night. I was back again within a few days with a different set of friends and family so I would definitely recommend.

We arrived about 30mins early and were told that our table wasn't ready but we could have a seat at bar area and we'd be told when a table was available.

We sat there for roughly 20 minutes and heard nothing from the staff, I asked one in passing if we could order there and she said that a table was becoming available and took us over.

After being seated at the table we were left waiting on a server coming over, no one even came by to take a drinks order. Staff were serving other people that came in after us and just generally seemed disinterested in us.

After 20 minutes of waiting, we went to the bar ourselves to order as we were fed up waiting and being ignored, and the staff didn't seem to care that we'd waited so long.

Overall the food itself was great but the service was shockingly poor.

The fish and chips are epic. The burgers were great and the 'posher' plates went down very well. Food had always been good here, but they've really stepped things up.

The relaxed atmosphere and huge beer selection are excellent. Stephen and the team were really on their game this week. It won't be long before we are back!

My table was right beside the entrance, and thus it was a bit cold.
I and my friend both ordered the beef burger, but the patties were overcooked. It was even hard to cut with a knife. And since my table was right beside the entrance, the food we ordered became cold so fast.
I really love Drygate. The beer is great and the restaurant is lovely, but my visit last time was a little disappointing.

We ordered “ tomato rosemary soup” were served creamy green soup which was very good. They changed the soup but never consulted us. It took over 15 minutes to get 2 half pints of beer, even though it was not busy. The vegetarian food that we ordered was good.

This place is a cross between a Brew Dog bar and an Innes and Gunn kitchen. Great beer and excellent food that's just a little bit different. We will definately be back.

My wife and I visited the Urban Market in the brewery and later had an EXCEPTIONAL meal in the brewhouse.
Add to that the good ales, wheelchair accessible premises and VERY courteous and helpful staff made our whole experience memorable
Will definitely be returning

I often go to drygate as it's a favourite of my partner and I. However this time I took my cousin and although she had a very nice meal, my veggy obergine main was a bit cold and unseasoned. A real disappointment for such a great place to eat. Later we weren't asked if we wanted to see a menu for desert or coffee (our waiter had left for the evening) so we paid up and left. Usually superb- this time a disappointing Saturday evening.

This is the second time we have eaten here, giving it another go after such poor service (But good food) the first time. The waiting staff are on another planet wandering around chatting at the bar and cleaning cutlery when diners are sitting with empty plates. Also I do feel that waiting staff with long hair should have it tied back if serving or behind the bar!

On both visits no one asked us anything about our meals, or if we wanted another drink - no one approached the table after we were served our meals at all. In the end we had to get their attention just to ask them to take our plates away and order the kids ice cream.

This time one of our party found a bit of wood (bit of wooden skewer? maybe) and another unidentified small plastic article in the Turkey dish, we eventually told the waiting staff who didn't apologise until we left and paid the bill at the end, yes they did deduct the price of the Turkey dish from the menu, but no apology until we were leaving. In fact the staff avoided us altogether until we left. Incredible.

The turkey dish was not good anyway as our friend said was swamped in bacon, and the chipolatas had bacon round them too, it was all too much. Not a great effort for Christmas style dinner. Which is a shame as the fish and chips and burgers and kids food were all excellent.

The music was TOO LOUD for the dining area, and slightly erratic one minute Ian Jury and the Blockheads the next Christmas songs.

Id love to come back here but the service lets the place down, if you are doing table service you have to do it fully and not just a bit, maybe people are suppose to order drinks at the bar?

If you like craft beer,this is the place for you. Great food, great ambiance and attentive staff. If you want a regular beer though, they dont have any. Whilst fine for most people, not all like craft beer -just be prepared, it is a craft brewery after all

The food was amazing and tough the vegetarian menu was small, they were very accommodating! Friendly and very helpful staff. The beer was also absolutely amazing, with a flavour for everyone. The tasting tray is great if you can't make up your mind.
