Polite staff and food was very good. More importantly the kids loved it.
The food was great and the service was great
Have visited this pub many times for light lunches and sitting in the garden has always been a joy. Went for Dinner to celebrate my daughters Birthday. What a disappointment. We placed our order at the bar and up to that point everything still seemed OK. Our starters were served and then we were literally forgotten about. After half an hours wait we eventually called someone to tell them that we had finished starters and were waiting for our mains. Turns out they only then started preparing our mains! We had ordered 2 steaks which were overdone, all our chips were still raw and my vegetarian mushroom pie was so salty I had to leave 1/2 of it plus the chips which were just disgusting as they were raw. Complete waste of money.
Again we had to call someone to take our dishes away. All in all, just awful.
We have been using the Brickmakers for a few years and it was one of our favourite restaurants. We knew it was in new hands but were happy to see just what, if anything had changed. Firstly, we noticed that the bar area as you walk in was not very busy and we have never been in for a Sunday lunch when it isn't busy. There appeared to be only one person serving at the bar so even though it wasn't busy, we had to wait a while to get a drink. Our pre-booked table which was in the snug area, not the main restaurant. The snug was, to the best of my knowledge, kept for people without bookings but it was ok. The drinks arrived and so did the menu and one of the first things we noticed was that the middle section of the menu had been deleted so now it was only starters and mains. I am a veggie and this depleted my options. I also noticed is that there is now a 10% discretionary service charge if you eat in the restaurant. One thing that really ticks me off is a service charge. The choice I had was soup, blue cheese pie with chips and gravy or veggie burger. It was quite warm and I wanted more than soup but didn't want a gravy dinner so I had the burger. It isn't my favourite but never mind. We ended up waiting in total 45 minutes for our food to come out. My husband had the sea bass on a bed of salad and chips. My burger had no garnishing at all just a burger on a plate with a cup of chips. In fairness, this has always been the veggie burger on offer but it could be massively improved with a bit of thought. My husband ate all his dinner but felt the portion size was smaller than in the past. In the end we were quite disappointed and so decided to ask for the bill, rather than have coffee or desert. When the bill came the 10% charge had been added even though we weren't in the main restaurant. I asked for it to be removed which it was. We feel the little touches are missing, the attention to detail and we also noticed there were less staff. Feel very sad.
Fantastic food. Excellent value for money.
Aiofe was a fabulous waitress. I have three kids so the outside area is great to sit. The only complaint is the smoking. If you want to enjoy an outside meal with a family you battle with the smoking. It seems unfair to have to expose ourselves to that in order to enjoy the ambience. But Overall a favourite for us
