Atmosphere was lovely. Food was okay, good veggie options.
There were no heaters so it got very cold

The service was great and staff super friendly, food was a bit disappointing but overall relaxing experience ! A great for beer lovers
Table was booked for 9. Was handed a menu at 9.20. Then told we are lucky because the kitchen is closing. Offered a drink at 10.10 that never came. Then again told we were lucky to get one because the bar is closed. Made feel the whole time as if we were being done favours. Food was good. Atmosphere was good. Sever was very nice but the whole thing was just ruined. When we chose to leave at 10.45 there were still servers coming down the stairs with trays of pints and serving tables. Also asked to pay for the drink that never came. Really disappointed
Absolutely amazing night in the open gate brewery last night. It was my birthday and they provided a gorgeous touch of surprising me with a glass of Prosecco. The drinks were delicious and the servers were brilliant. The atmosphere was incredible and I cannot wait to book another night.
Hey Orlaith So happy that you enjoyed your birthday celebrations with us. We love hearing such great feedback on our staff and venue so thanks. Definitely come visit again! Deirdre Guinness Open Gate Brewery

We had a really lovely evening at the OGB yesterday. Great service and very welcoming staff, the music created a lovely atmosphere, and of course the drinks were quality as usually- a special mention goes to the Chicken wings, which were devine 👏 Well done everyone, and welcome back after a long 6 months 😊🍺
Hi, Delighted to be back and thanks so much for dropping in and leaving this lovely feedback. I agree... the chicken wings are yum and deserve that special mention! 😊 Deirdre Guinness Open Gate Brewery
The best staff. Very kind and friendly. Prices are good. The quality of the drinks and food are quite good. I'll back soon! If I have to say something maybe the music doesn't match with the place!
Wow. Thanks for all the kind words. Really appreciate you leaving this feedback and we will be sure to look into our music choices! Deirdre Guinness Open Gate Brewery

Great food, good Guinness, friendly staff. Food is a bit dear but worth it, in my opinion. Looking forward to going again.
Right from sanitizing immediately , wearing masks , friendly staff, amazing and delicious food and good choices of drinks. Overall, had a fantastic relaxed time.
Great pints, great service, solid pub food. Will definitely be back!

LOVED IT. Had read an article online about their UseLESS beer and thought we’d give it a go. We tasted various, quality beers all night and the food was just perfect. Staff are welcoming and attentive - would definitely recommend!
Hi Meg, Thank you so much for the amazing review. We are delighted you got the opportunity to try out our new UseLESS beer. It is such an exciting collaboration. We will be sure to pass on the kind words to the staff. Olivia Guinness Open Gate Brewery
Took ages for them to take our food order...then once our food arrived...no server came near us again...despite many attempts to grab attention.
When eventually got their attention we were told kitchen was closed and we couldn’t order dessert 🙄
Very disappointed 😞
Hi there, We're so sorry to hear this - This is not our standard and we're sorry to have disappointed you. We'd love to have you back when we reopen! Michelle Guinness Open Gate Brewery

Love, love this little Micro Brewery. By day a working Micro Brewery, by night a quirky bar & restaurant. Staff are fun and welcoming and will offer any advice on what to drink and eat. This is my annual Xmas catch up place with the girlies. Very mixed age group too! all welcome. Beautiful huge Xmas tree in courtyard for photos with outdoor booths or warm cosy bar inside. Your choice.

Always nice, and the staff very careful as well! Pleasant!
The staff were really nice very quiet place considering I couldn't get any times I wanted it does t seem busy
Enjoyed my night made the most of it but won’t be returning.. food was nice but again wouldn’t be in a hurry to have it again ans especially for the price I’d have been happier with a McDonald’s been honest. Service wasn’t great either and had to keep asking to be served.. place was freezing too couldn’t even take my coat off so was happy to leave when my time was up.

Hi Ciara, Thank you for this great review. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your visit and that you enjoyed the food (hopefully the drinks too!) Michelle Guinness Open Gate Brewery
We were sat in a horrible car park with no ambience and the staff didn't care tried to order a drink while waiting on friends and were refused so we left
Hi Darren, We're very sorry to see this. If you'd like to contact us again we'd love to arrange another visit for you! Michelle Guinness Open Gate Brewery
Lovely venue, good seasonal ambience. Truthfully food was ok at most - burgers looked the best bet; grilled sandwiches were bland.
Inside staff, the guys in particular were superb - warm, engaging, informative. Female staff seemed disinterested.
Main point for them to work on was the very poor handing of masks-wearing by clients in the building. No instructions upon entry from the girl at reception - I saw lots of customers walking around the inside building with no masks on, or being reminded of this by the staff.
Thank you for this review. We will certainly take your feedback on board! Michelle Guinness Open Gate Brewery
Servers were great. Manager was extremely rude.
Food was overpriced for the quality .
Like wise with drinks. Would I go back again? Strong No.
would recommend . No .
Amazing Christmas ales! Great service with social distancing - felt very safe!
The food is poor pub grub with an enormous amount of salt on top. The seat they had us in was freezing, the service was fair enough but could of been far better considering it wasn’t that busy. The pint of Guinness was of a shocking standard my local pub is by a mile superior.
