Had a lovely night. Great food and lovely cocktails. The ceviche, tartare and the ragu were particular stand outs. It did feel a bit rushed (we asked to have a bit of a break between starters and mains but they already had the mains en-route) but I guess that’s a covid related thing, trying to make sure everyone was out in 1 hr 45. Considering we had 2 courses done in less than an hour though it would have been nice if it wasn’t as zealous. Saying that though we had a lovely evening and all the staff were great. Shout out to Jessie at the front entrance who made it feel like a Pre covid night out with her cheery service. Will definitely go back again restrictions allowing. It’s not a very cheap night out if you partake in a few of the lovely cocktails but we had a great evening.

I had the poached eggs on an avocado toast and my partner had the steak sandwich. We took a flight of beers and two pints.

I recommend this place! The staff is great, the food is good! And I can't wait to go back once covid is over so we can eat inside under the vaulted ceilings.

The toast with avocado was a bit soggy unfortunately however the truffle mayo was really good! So was the mozzarella and the other sandwich!

Staff were lovely and friendly but not very knowledgeable about the menus. Only beers available brewed there were three saisons, according to staff, which seemed odd but the one I ordered didn't taste like a saison and was very average. Steak was terrible, like chewing gum and although we were told it was cooked medium rare as standard, it was almost well done - grey with the merest hint of pink. Brocoli was unseasoned and lacked flavour. Because of the poor quality of the food and cooking, it felt very overpriced at 28 euro for two courses, food was pub grub standard at best. All covid measures were well handled by the friendly staff though and it was plenty warm on the terrace.

Payment in full prior to meal is not a deposit. This policy sullied the experience for us.

Urban Brewing
Responded 4 days ago

Hello, Thanks for joining us despite disagreeing with our policy, which is clearly communicated to Guests when booking, and before charging prepayment. Your menu prepayment (fully deducted from your bill) was processed just hours before arrival. We wish we didn’t have to proceed this way but our reduced capacity and issues with no-shows left us no choice. We‘re sorry to hear that this kept you from enjoying what should’ve been a wonderful meal in a great atmosphere as your 4 star rating suggests

Dear Guest, We take reviews seriously and have no problem admitting when we´re wrong. However, when we checked on yo, you said you just weren't hungry. Imagine our disappointment at finding this review both on OT and Google! We find this unfair: Negative reviews can be quite damaging, and we directly asked you whether there was an issue, which could've been fixed then and there. Everyone is entitled to opinions but we hope that you don’t mind us giving guests the truth about your experience.

Quick dinner out with my girlfriend. The food felt a bit overpriced for what it was and the timing wasn’t ideal - food came very very quickly, which wouldn’t be a big deal but we ordered cocktails and we nearly finished the food before those arrived. I’d write that off to figuring things out during COVID. Service was impeccable though. Staff were great.

Really great ambience is a challenge with COVID but I felt that Urban Brewing (in what was previously Ely CHQ) managed it really well. It felt safe and you could relax and enjoy the excellent food. The menu was slightly limited in terms of main courses but for grazing there were nice and interesting options.
