Food ok and nice beers. The only con I find is that there weren’t many tables inside and if it’s raining it’s not convenient.

We had a lovely dinner here on the terrace. The food and drink were excellent. The steak was cooked to my liking with a delicious smoky flavour and the chocolate mousse was really nice without being too sweet. This is a great place for cocktails.

The staff were lovely, as always. Covid-19 regulations are taken very seriously.

Asked for my steak medium and you can still hear it Mooing and they had no reasonable sides, beer was horrific and the price was terrible also considering we were only there 30 minutes

Dear Guest, We take reviews seriously and have no problem admitting when we´re wrong. However, when we checked on yo, you said you just weren't hungry. Imagine our disappointment at finding this review both on OT and Google! We find this unfair: Negative reviews can be quite damaging, and we directly asked you whether there was an issue, which could've been fixed then and there. Everyone is entitled to opinions but we hope that you don’t mind us giving guests the truth about your experience.

Quick dinner out with my girlfriend. The food felt a bit overpriced for what it was and the timing wasn’t ideal - food came very very quickly, which wouldn’t be a big deal but we ordered cocktails and we nearly finished the food before those arrived. I’d write that off to figuring things out during COVID. Service was impeccable though. Staff were great.

Really great ambience is a challenge with COVID but I felt that Urban Brewing (in what was previously Ely CHQ) managed it really well. It felt safe and you could relax and enjoy the excellent food. The menu was slightly limited in terms of main courses but for grazing there were nice and interesting options.

Dear Brendan, Thanks a million for choosing us, and for leaving us such a lovely review afterwards! We have definitely put a lot of effort in ensuring that dining out is as safe as possible for both our Guests and Staff, while still being enjoyable and relaxed! Just a small clarification, we have always been Urban Brewing since we opened in 2017, and are completely separate from our neighbours, although we are in the same beautiful Chq building :) Thanks again and we hope to see you soon!

A lot of items off the menu were sold out especially the vegetarian options, we ended up suggesting options for them to create as they weren't being very helpful with alternatives. The food we got was good but just would have been nice to have an option.
Not the friendliest waiter.

We went her during corona so we were asked to view the menu online. It was hard to understand the server since the music was too loud. Me and my girlfriend ordered steak that was nicely cooked on a bed of some broccolini and to splash of aioli on the plate. No potatoes or nothing else on the plate and it was all 19€. This was kind of dissapointing and left us hungry. We had nice beer but will not come back under corona when food is mandatory.

This was my first time at Urban Brewing. It was a really good experience. Staff are so efficient. One girl of Asian heritage in particular who was clearing tables and delivering drinks was absolutely brilliant. The whole staff have a great mask etiquette and are so well organised in terms of their covid policies. I was very impressed. The food was also delicious... especially the crab claws and the roasted rooster potatoes. Only disappointment was that they had run out of tortilla. I will definitely return and I’ve since told a few people about my experience....

The waiter ruined our experience by telling us we need to order something every 15 mins. It almost felt like he was rushing us through our time there and wanted us out as soon as possible. It felt like a punishment to go out and choose this place.

Urban Brewing
Responded on 27 July 2020

Dear Guest Current guidelines establish a time limit of 105min per table and require availing of a substantial meal. This info is in our website and was communicated during your visit. Your waiter tried to take your order several times precisely to prevent you from being rushed to finish your meal within the time limit established by the Govt. -not ourselves. We're most definitely not looking to punish our Guests and truly appreciate our customers and a low rating based on this feels most unfair

Always suffer from the problem of wanting to eat everything on the menu. Thank-fully the portions are the right size to accommodate that need, especially when it came to dessert. The revamped Beeramisu reminds you of the original, but like when VW came out with the new Beetle, makes you smile because of the new twist.

Love the poached egss at UrbanBrewing. They were a winner again this visit and cooked to perfection (white cooked & yolk runny). Though they couldn't get cherry tomatoes, they did a great job with the replacement tomatoes. Only slight detraction was the miniscule portions of mozzarella - they are normally bigger. All followed by a delicious cup of coffee. Though they have social distancing dining in place, the welcome and ease with which they do it makes it seem less intrusive. The staff were respectful of distancing but very friendly and chatty. Plus, they made our dog most welcome and made sure she had some water to keep her happy.

It’s a nice place for a casual bite, catching up with friends over some pints or cocktails, The tapas are delicious and they’ve got a great variety of beers. It gets expensive if you’re actually hungry (the only problem with tapas) and it’s a bit noisy sitting outside but overall it was a nice experience and I would recommend.
