We were very fortunate to be able to be able to get table for 3 with a last minute booking on a busy Easter Monday. There is a more casual pub orientated area too but the main eating area is bright and nicely decorated in a contemporary style, it is heavily populated with tables and chairs and there was quite a volume of chatter in the air so, although good for my lunch with the folks, I'm not sure I would want the same experience for a romantic or evening meal - I may need to test that out as the evening experience may be very different. This is also not somewhere I would suggest you take young children, all the more reason for me to want to return.
The menu appeared to be a daily menu and offered a wide, but not ridiculous, range of choices, Personally I would have liked to have seen more than one vegetarian main course listed ( there were smaller/starter options) but that can be my only negative as lack of any choice is a regular complaint I have at pubs/restaurant so I'll get that out of the way now, luckily the main available on that day was something I really wanted to try, such a relief to not to have to eat yet another unimaginative vegetarian risotto or pasta dish again! The wine list offers a range of prices and origins with quite a few available by the glass and water is provided to every table without request. We didn't have starters on this occasion, each main dish was both well presented and cooked, we all agreed our individual meals were absolutely delicious, not to mention the enormous portions which unfortunately meant I'm unable to comment on the desert menu at this time.
Every member of staff was polite, cheerful, very professional and unobtrusively attentive. Despite the fact all the tables were occupied and it was clearly a busy time, there was no long wait for service, drinks, meals, clearing or the bill. Equally there was no pressure to vacate.
This was, without a doubt, the best meal out I or even we, have had for quite some time, unfortunately living 25 miles away The Brickmakers will never be my local but I will definitely be back and my parents are already keen to return, the garden area looked like it will be lovely in summer so I don't think it will be long before a return visit .....after I've checked what the daily vegetarian main dish is of course, although I may go straight in for desert!
