Arrived at the restaurant and waited 5 mins before anyone even acknowledged that we were there even though it was a quiet afternoon. We chose a table outside in the sun which was nice. When we were seated we were told that we would need...to go up to the bar to order which is fine however it is covid and usually only allow table service. We ordered a burger, a salad, tapas taco, a beer and a coke which came to $87. After ordering we were offered no water and no cutlery, they bought the wrong food to our table which we didn’t mind and let them know were didn’t order it but with covid it’s really just not good enough, meals came out at different times, had to go searching for a waiter to ask for cutlery and it seemed like an issue to ask for. Food was super average for the price and no one came to check on our table once, keeping in mind its 3pm and there are only 4/5 other tables. We didn’t finish our meals so asked for a takeout box, was asked to go get it ourselves from behind the counter. Was a mediocre experience and will not be returning which is a shame as is a beautiful restaurant.More

Butcher and Brewer is now under new management and it’s not good at all. I called to book a table outside and we were put inside though we were able to move outside. It was half an hour before someone took our order and at...that point they told us they didn’t have 3 things in the menu. They are not doing the welly on a plate burger that is still in their menu… An hour for a drink to come out and a friend got the wrong drink. It’s overpriced for what it is. Evident the staff have no idea what they are doing. It’s a shame, used to be a popular spot but none of the group of 7 of us will head back there now despite the apologies from the wait staff and the reasonableness of charging some of us less money. The website is also a nightmare to actually even find a menu. Give this is a miss until they manage to sort themselves out, or someone else buys it…. Disappointing experience today.More

Great service, amazing food. A classy pub really. Maybe a few to many things in the table - took up to much room. Nothing to moan about though. Was a great meal and place. Taking the kids back for my birthday

We popped in for a quick dinner after a long drive. The service was ok, the burger pretty good but the ribs were tough and dry, and my medium rare steak was well done…in all the wrong ways. The wait staff didn’t seem to interested...in our feedback either.More

The food here is so good! Service can be a bit average but the food never fails. Would love to see a better dessert menu tho!
