Excellent for a tap room serving a good range of beers. The Parade IPA is brilliant. This is a long way from being a luxurious experience but for a great venue is great.

Cachia and Tails was a great food truck, and good that they served til late, unlike other good trucks on Saturdays down there. Often we've turned up in the evening planking to eat and they've finished serving really early like by 6pm!

The space is fantastic. Because of covid 19 social distancing, slightly less atmosphere inside than on previous visits but had plenty of people outside. Beers were delicious and we were regularly asked if we wanted to order any more we didn’t have to wait long to place orders - for either food or drink. When we were there the food was from Hunter gather cook and we had delicious fallow deer tacos - great fun watching them cook over the open fire outside. Will be back!

We all loved it. We appreciate the fires outside And the shelter as it was cold outside and poured with rain. The food portions could have been bigger- we ended up ordering one and a half main courses. But the whole thing was top banana

Great atmosphere and beer and was lovely to have a bit of music - but sadly disappointed with Seven Sisters food - the vegan was nearly all rice and the vindaloo didn't have any kick. Sorry, I know its hard working outdoors but I organise food vendors for festivals and the streetfood providers dish out 100x better than that, in a field!

Love this place. Great service and tasty food/beers. Only issue was the seating, really uncomfortable. Padded stools or seating cushions would hugely help. My back was sore when we left.

First visit here. We were seated quickly by a friendly staff member. Chose to sit outside but in hindsight probably should have sat inside as it got breezy and they seemed to be playing music we liked inside. Beer was very nice. A little confusing to have to order food from a separate person but understood why. Service was great overall though. Paying for everything at the end is easier and makes for a more relaxing time. Some sturdier seating might be a good idea, tables and benches a bit wobbly. Overall, great stuff.. we’ll return soon!

Obviously the beers are amazing, the food from Field & Flame was top notch. Location is a bit of a walk out of town. Quiz was protected but brought a focus to all customers. I'd recommend it to any beer geeks.

Great beers, great atmosphere, wish I had to option to select a table inside or out as we couldn’t hear the quiz very well outside in the corner.
