The ciders and gluten free alcoholic beverages have always been great at Bru. It has a nice atmosphere whether you are there for lunch, dinner or evening drinks. There are a few gluten free food options on the menu and Bru has always been accommodating of my allergy. Overall, great gluten free food and drinks! Also consistently great service every... More

We liked the spot, it was a nice place for a lazy afternoon. The main course was average and the ice cream cookies were fantastic. I would definitely go again for drinks or desert but probably not for food.

Great place; awesome selection of craft and non- mainstream beer, paired with selections from the kitchen. Pub-style atmosphere, and a cosy feel. Food is admirable, kudos to the kitchen. If you like Bud and corn dogs in a reversed ball cap, this is not your hangout. But if you like to discover a world of beer and food that go... More

Four of ate at Bru last Sunday Sept 25th. We stared with nachos, they were good with lots of toppings. I had the thai ribs. They were okay but tasted more like regular BBQ ribs. Portion size was good. They willingly substituted a salad for a fries. I really liked the salad. My friend and a burger, she said it... More

Met a local friend for a catch up while in town. Service was very friendly and efficient. Menu was somewhat limited, however it was fresh and tasty. Spent ages just catching up after our meal and never were we rushed to leave. Would return again.

I actually used to like their food ... And dressings that they make in house ... Way too much salt in the burger today which was disappointing .

Ordered calamari, burgers and beer. Too much salt in both food items. I like salt, just not excessively. Nice gastropub atmosphere. Would only return for beer.
