Brewers Fayre Review

At the weekend we were very kindly invited to a Brewers Fayre about an hour away. We went to try out their new Autumn menu and to have a play in their beano play area.

On arrival we were greated by the most lovely staff. It was very quiet but soon got busier. We were shown to the play area which was all the way through the restaurant. It had lovely big doors at the entrance. Inside there was a little counter and some tables and a little party area. Paige was given a wristband and off she went.
 

The play area itself was good. It was clean and tidy. There were a lot of slides and things to climb. We were a little disappointed that there wasn't a ball pit and I think this would be a lovely addition. There was a separate toddler area with some baby walkers, a couple of cosy coupe's, some foam shapes, a puzzle and a slide. The slide was good but was a little high up to get on, even Paige needed our help.

We ordered a couple of drinks while we were in the play area and they were lovely. For our food we decided to go into the main restaurant, you can eat in the play area though. We just thought it would be a little more relaxed and wouldn't distract the children as much. Ordering was nice and easy, there were plenty to choose from. You have to go up to the bar to order which isn't a problem. Our food took half an hour to come. We asked for the childrens starters to come with their mains. While we waited there were little activity books and colouring pencils available which is nice. I don't think half an hour is long to ask an adult to wait but for a hungry child they could get grumpy, Parker did. I did hear others saying their wait was 45 minutes.

 
 
When the food arrived it was nice and hot and looked lovely. We were asked if we needed extra sauce and they checked on us once to ask if everything was ok which was nice. The food was really nice. The portion sizes were good. The kids meals were great. The portions sizes were good. Paige needed a little bit more and Parker needed a little bit less so we just gave Paige some of Parkers and it worked perfectly. They also got little pots of ketchup which Paige loved.

 
 
There were quite a few new dishes on the menu. Mark had the chicken biryani from the new menu and said it was really nice. He said the sauces were nice too. I got the lasagne which isn't a new dish but is super yummy.
 
 
 
Desert was probably my favourite. We ordered the Sharing Fondue which is also from the new menu. It was so good. It took 20 minutes to arrive which I thought was a little long as nothing was cooked, it just had to be assembled but it was worth the wait. You got a pot of caramel and chocolate sauce.
 
 
All the staff were super lovely. They made Paige and us feel so at ease. There was always someone around in case you had a question or needed something. The restaurant and the play area was really well looked after. Everywhere was clean and tidy. There was also an outside area for the kids to play and areas to sit outside for if it was a nice day.

Overall we had such a lovely afternoon. The food was yummy and the kids had fun. The value of the meals was really good. We loved the new additions that we tried from the new menu and would defiantly go back.
