It was busy as per usual at house of brews, it was nothing that we didn’t expect, but given how busy it was our food and drink came out really fast! The plates of food were more than we could handle definitely getting our moneys worth and the cocktails were presented immaculately and we delicious! Props to Sahil the Cocktail God for his expertise and quality cocktails.
Love it here and will always be coming back!

Had a quick pop in for some fries and a cocktail. I had the Platform 9 3/4 and LOVED IT!! The presentation, the taste, everything. For someone who loves the Potterworld, this certainly did not disappoint. Will be going back!

Everytime we come to the coast (which is often) we ALWAYS come to House of Brews. Value for money, lovely staff, the food is amazing. Weve recommended to all our friends and family who also now go when they stay nearby.

Everything was sticky! The toilet door to enter the facilities, and the mens room was disgusting! Noise level was a bit much also, disappointing really.

Food and service was good but won't be rushing back.

Cocktail menu looked amazing, but prices were very steep for what they were. Service was friendly but a bit slow at the start as we had to ask to order. We were wanting dinner but the food menu didn’t interest us at all so we went elsewhere. Everything was ok, but wasn’t as good as we had hoped.

Can’t wait to go back! Best to book online (due to Covid-19). The more people you have in your group, the more time you can stay. We were a table of 5 and we’re give 2.5hrs. We also had our 2 kids with us who enjoyed seeing the different types of cocktails Mum and Aunty had bought themselves haha. Hubby also enjoyed the 6 paddle beer. And the extra beer of his choice. Cannot wait to go back

The service behind the bar was ordinary. Only one barman seemed to be interested in serving people. We didn't eat however the food that others were ordering looked amazing. The stand out for us was the entertainment. The soloist that was playing was amazing.

We were lucky enough to get a booth for our Fathers Day Dinner, so was very comfortable and semi-private. Food was plentiful. The only gripe was the Mexican salad was a bit bland. Overall a good night. Cocktails were extravagant and tasted just as good as their presentation. We will definitely return again.

Great ambience and delicious cocktails! The cocktails are great value but the food is fairly ordinary bar food and a little overpriced. They played awesome music but our service could have been friendlier. Overall enjoyed our night here and all definitely return to try more cocktails!
