I came for a brewery tour so didn't eat but would certainly go back. A thriving location with a naturally a wide range of beers but other drinks are there as well. As a brewery tour I think it's a good introduction due to the smaller size of the plant - helps you get a good overview and you can... More

We were a large family group who went last Sunday and we could not have had better food or service! The roast beef and roast mallard were "to die for". All dietary and other needs were met by friendly and efficient staff. We will be back! Alta la vista.

We have visited this beer hall several times over the years and every time I must have the shepherds pie. It never changes and is always superb and as previously remembered. My husband had fish and chips and he says they were better than last time as the batter was much crispier and not as stodgy. The beer was amazing... More

Best place for roast beef I have ever been to friendly staff make a place to go for a beer and roast beef. Only one thing that is against it is a poor selection of veggie food. There is plenty of parking also a very good place to meet up with family and friends.

Menu leads you to expect a high standard of tasty food to be enjoyed. You may question the £10.95 '5' egg omelette, two eggs only suspected, most definitely not 5 as described. Caused a problem later. Cremated whitebait and goujons with barely any fish at all in one of them and very greasy. No one minds paying top prices for... More

HawksheadBrewery, Head Chef at The Beer Hall, responded to this review

This is an unfair and inaccurate review. The omelette was actually Omelette Arnold Bennet – described on the menu as: “5 egg omelette topped with smoked haddock in white sauce, grilled with parmesan + parsley.” A main course meal in itself at £11. It covered an 8 inch plate and was definitely a 5 egg omelette. The suggestion that we... More

We popped in for a light lunch. Their tapas and light meals are freshly prepared, very tasty and good value. Service is brisk and done with charm. Amazing range of beers - most brewed on site. There is outdoor seating if the weather is kind. Get your table first and then order at the bar.

Booked the River Bar to celebrate our silver wedding with our family and friends (around 60 of us). Nicky made the whole booking process so easy - a great ambassador for your employers, as were the bar tenders Jammo and Chloe. Teamed the use of the bar with a hot buffet provided by Wilf's cafe next door. Perfect comb, all... More

Great place to visit. Brilliant choice of beers. Added bonus of a small but good food menu and a shop on site for takeaway beers. Would recommend

The Beer Hall is truly fantastic! Amazing range of beers and the food is great too. I'm always looking for an excuse to drop in here, even just for a cheeky half following a run or toward the end of a bike ride. Good job I always carry some emergency getting home money! My friends love this place too as... More
