Reasonable food at a reason price, but it's the same old same old really. And after a couple of nights it's titter in on being rather boring. Cannot fault the restarant or the staff or the service.

Hotel and restraunt very dated. ( staff at hotel very nice though ) Food at brewers fair very poor & breakfast staff need to up their attitude! And maybe learn to smile a little. Restraunt seems to be themed around a kids club! Ideal to relax after a business trip ! Maybe have a jump around in the ball pit!... More

Not sure why there are negative reviews. This place is great for families. We stayed in the premier inn next door for a few days. The breakfasts were lovely and the staff were friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. Tonight we used the soft play and dinner before the ferry. Soft play was manned by a great young girl, ever... More

Since my last visit I have had two breakfasts, both were of poor quality, other than the bacon and egg on a full breakfast the other items were undercooked mushrooms, strange tasting Bubble and squeak, poor quality sausages, barely warm hash browns, The buffet doesn't open until they are busy. I had the same mess in the Burgess Hill branch.... More

My wife and I regularly eat in this restaurant but lately it has gone down hill. The staff are still friendly but seem unhappy.They appear to be under pressure and there appears to be quite a turnover of staff.The whole place could do with some refurbishment, which I was told was going to be done months ago.The food we ordered...

I have been her 3 times in the past 2 weeks! Visit 1: I went with my 2 year old, newborn, parents and grandma. We had a 2 for 1 voucher. The food was great value for money but we were only given a very small amount of chips each. When we raised this with a waiter he bought out... More

Attached to a Premier Inn, you get exactly what you would expect from a Brewers Fayre. Cheerful but slightly haphazard service, decent enough but instantly forgettable food.

We have visited several times and have always received fantastic customer service! Breakfast is delicious! We have enjoyed a few meals there too! In addition to this, the barman makes the most beautiful pimms :-) We will definitely be returning as soon as we are able. Thank you to all of the staff for making us feel so welcome when... More

Great quality food, waiting staff are really friendly especially Emma in the evenings. Gets very busy at the weekends so best to book. Food served hot and timely. Good value for money.
