Not as perfect as usual, but that was just due to the food! We had come for dinner but there were only a few things left, we both just ordered the cauliflower bites in the end which took 50 minutes and were very al dente so no the easiest to eat with very little flavour. The drinks were great as always!

Thanks for your feedback. Sorry to hear you had a poor food experience. Whilst inviting a different food vendor each weekend offers variety it does mean we have to sacrifice control and in turn we cannot be as consistent as we would like and are with our beer. We appreciate & understand it let down your evening but trust that as you continue to enjoy our beer it will not stop you from returning and trying another food vendor with hopefully better success!

Foods was good but the wait was to long. Also the ordering App for both food and drink is not easy to use.

Taproom at Rooster's Brewing Co.
Responded a day ago

Thanks for your feedback. Whilst no one app will please everyone nor is it any-ones preferred method of ordering it is currently the safest and easiest way we can get people their food and drinks but we will continue to listen and improve where we can. Apologies there was a delay in your food order. At peak times occasionally a backlog can occur in the kitchen and whilst we cannot promise this will never happen again we will endeavour to keep you informed on arrival of any delays in future.

The qr method of ordering drinks is dreadful. Get a proper app or do table service and contact less.

Taproom at Rooster's Brewing Co.
Responded a day ago

Sorry to hear you are not a fan of the QR code. We switched from Round as we felt it was an improvement. There is unlikely an app that pleases everyone but we continually take onboard customer feedback and if the majority are unhappy we will look to change it. We would love to be able to offer table service and contactless but for various reasons we are unable to. Whilst an app is no-ones favourite method of ordering it is the safest and most efficient way we can get you your drinks currently.

Food had sold out when we got there and no one informed us on arrival.

Taproom at Rooster's Brewing Co.
Responded on 15 October 2020

Thanks for your feedback. We should have let you know on arrival, this was a massive oversight, apologies. It is a fine balance for the vendors, preparing enough food to satisfy everyone whilst not having too much waste come closing time, which can mean if they are busier than anticipated they reluctantly must stop serving. Whilst we cannot promise this will never happen, we will make sure you are kept informed on or before arrival if it does. i hope you will give us another chance!

Here again and once again a great visit. Good food from food trader and excellent beer as always. One of the best Covid secure run places we’ve been to and efficient friendly service. Order from an app and order brought to table for food and beer. Although we’ve never really had any problems with the app received email they are to change to a web based order system so we’ll see next time....... I’m sure it’ll be fine 😳

Great selection of delicious drinks from Roosters and fabulous, tasty food from the Bao Boys made for a very enjoyable visit. The team made us feel very welcome but also safe with the COVID-19 safety measures. We will definitely return and the app makes the table service easy.

We had booked a table specifically to try the food on offer. When we arrived, the menu was displayed in the entrance and we were shown to a table. When trying to place an order using the round app, there seemed to a problem loading the food menu. We wondered if it was a problem with the app or WIFI, so tried moving/different phone etc.
Eventually when we spoke to someone,we were told it was because the food had run out. Now, this can't be helped, but it should have been pointed out to us when arrived, either by a member of staff, a sign on the menu displayed in the entrance or some clear notification on the app. It should also be made clear when booking that food can't be guaranteed & that it could run out, as this is not the case at present.
So, unfortunately, we had to leave without even having a drink to get food elsewhere. A real shame, as we really enjoyed our previous visit.

Thanks for your feedback, it is much appreciated. We are aware the app is not great and have made steps to change it over the next week. I understand using a phone is not everyone's preferred method of ordering but due to our size any alternative would bring increased movement and contact which in turn leads to increased risk. We feel phone ordering is the safest for both staff and our customers alike. I hope it has not put you off too much and that you might try us again with our new system!

First visit under the new system and hugely impressed with the whole experience. The beer was as fabulous as usual, the layout, table booking and beer ordering app worked flawlessly and the service was prompt, safe and polite.

If you are at all concerned about going out for a drink, please be assured you won’t find a safer place at the moment. Highly highly recommended at all times but especially now.

This was our first visit. Taproom looked lovely and we were happy with the Covid measures. The booking and ordering system worked well. Food wise, quite a few of the pizzas were not available,what we had was nice though. Beer quality was great and we had a lovely time. Will definitely call in again when in the area.
