I ordered the beef and onion pie. What I got was a casserole with mashed potatoes and vegetables. It was tasty and mostly okay but there was no pastry lid and no explanation as to why. This place is fine for a pizza but don't...More

Met up with a friend for lunch. I had not been to this venue for over a year and must say it looked a lot brighter. Food was excellent and the venue is still very cosy. Their soups were great.

A bit of a last-minute decision to try the "new" Grainstore restaurant at the Brewery Arts Centre. Really hard to see what had changed in the decor following the recent relaunch. Perhaps a bit more room. It wasn't busy the night we went yet they...More

Description
Brewery Hospitality: There’s a great choice of eating and drinking at the Brewery – something for every taste. The Brewery has somewhere to eat all day, every day of the week. In the Day: The Warehouse: a relaxed lounge, serving a range of drinks from Farrer’s specialty teas to bottles of local Hawkshead ale. It also serves the best latte in town. Eat locally made cakes, homemade scones and soups. In the Evening: The Vats Bar & Grainstore: Our extraordinary bar and restaurant serve a range of superb beers, wines and spirits and serve the famous Brewery Pizzas and our fabulous ‘Brewery Tapas’. The Vats and Grainstore are bustling, off-beat, friendly venues and should be part of any night out in the ‘Auld Grey Town’.
