We really enjoyed our meal at Kirkstall Brewery - we'd been planning a trip for ages and weren't disappointed! The beer (as expected) was great, the pizza was fantastic and the set-up was really child-friendly too. We loved the decor and the whole place felt really Covid-safe too. Thanks guys!

We ordered 4 pizza, I asked for extra jalapeno peppers on mine. However, the pizza arrived with the peppers on one of the others, not mine. Besides that, everything was excellent. Great pizza and beer.

Been visiting this venue since it opened last time a month ago.
Arrived yesterday and was shown to our table. After 15 minutes we asked a member of staff if we could order drinks. He replied you order via the app - weren't you told? We replied no.and said we aren't able to download apps.. We asked if a tab could be set up and we pay by card at the end as we've done in previous visits..We were told no you had to pay by the app and he wasn't willing to discuss. We chose to cancel the booking and left. This means we will no longer be able to visit our favourite venue which has left us feeling very sad

Hi Debbie. We encourage ordering on our app to ensure we can provide efficient table service with COVID restrictions. You don't have to pay on it however, and we always provide paper menus and orders with server by request. You visited at a very busy point on Saturday when admittedly it may have taken a little longer than usual for someone to get to you, but you did place an order with a server and then decided to leave the venue after this. Sorry to hear you don't feel you can come again.

Lovely beer garden, decent food, a good crowd, very professional staff, perfect for a sunny day out. Parking is a bit of an issue and fines are very frequent if you don’t use the paid parking opposite the brewery before 18.30.

Pizza was amazing. And the lager was good too. The service was friendly. My only problem was that it was a bit loud inside. I'd probably sit outside next time.

Husband was bladdered and chucked his drink all over the table, floor and myself, staff were brilliant and cleaned it up in seconds, lovely pizza, just a shame we couldn’t have stayed longer but had to remove him from the premises.

Table booked for Saturday evening.
Sadly the weather was terrible.
Absolutely pouring with rain.
The staff were excellent and did everything possible to keep people under cover.
We had beer and a pizza to share.
Service very good, fast and food came quickly.

Kicked out of our table for a couple that turned up 15 minutes late. The beer is absolutely incredible though, and all other visits have been far more enjoyable, so I wouldn’t advise against going in anyway, just a bad staff member on the day.
