The waitress staff was outstanding Tegan was absolutely great helped us with anything we needed was always there to take our plates and cups away and make sure we had everything we needed would highly recommend great for kids as well. The cocktails are unreel especially the Princess cocktail and everyone needs to try the paddle.

We had a great family dinner at House of Brews. We sat inside and knew that it was going to be noisy but we were still able to have a conversation with each other.
The food was great and so was the service. The kids dessert was a winner with Mr. 9 and he was on a sugar high for a while after.

First time here and will definately be back. Food was excellent and our table of 8 all enjoyed the big servings. Especially the fairy floss. Good range of beers on tap too. The only downside was the volume of the music at our booth as the speaker was directly above it. The staff were great when we asked for it to be turned down...obviously we are old even though it was good music being played.

Service staff were mostly extremely friendly, though our experience was ruined by the extremely rude floor manager that gave us a time limit on our booking and constantly interrupted us every 5 minutes with another rudely delivered time limit warning. She could clearly see us looking at our phones and watches. Quite an unbelievable experience, not in a good way. Yes, we get it there are bookings for after us and are totally happy to comply. There was no need for the extremely rude and condescending tone that was taken by said manager, we were monitoring our time and left prior to the time the table was required for another party. Won't ever return to this establishment.

I was extremely disappointed with the management at this bar/restaurant.

I was told that my husband was not allowed to try any of my drink due to their strict “one customer per drink policy”. To be told how I can & can’t consume my food & drinks is disgusting & degrading. It shows how clearly money hungry they are to force customers not to be able to share with their family/friends.

The toilet was quite literally unusable. The seat was broken off it & sitting against the wall on the floor. The flush button didn’t work & it was honestly just dirty and disgusting.

We were told during dinner we had to either give them our credit card to keep behind the bar, or get up immediately to pay our bill.

Apart from this, there were just a bunch of small things that were a bit unprofessional.

Although the waitstaff were lovely, the food was okay & the live music was great, I would not return due to the disgusting management.

Service was really nice. The music was great. Cocktails too expensive for such little drinks. The brisket burger I couldn’t finish, had to deconstruct it because there were three or so block of chuck steak. Once I pulled it a bit I discovered it was super dry, really needed a bbq sauce with it. Also the food took a really long time to come so a half the guests ate their meals before the other half got them. Good vibes but don’t rate the food.
