  • McCashins Brewery is a great place to stop for lunch and do a tour. We found Nicki our tour guide to be a wealth of knowledge and very engaging. Great service, great food and great beer.
  • We only had a quick stop here for a couple of beers, but it would be easy to lose an afternoon here. Great selection of beers, the food looked great (even thought I didn't get a chance to try it) and the venue was well set up and clean. The front of the building could do with some work - it looks like a disused warehouse, but definitely worth stopping by.
  • I was so discussed at not being able to order from the child's menu I am not able to eat large amounts . But was refused as it was for under 12 yr old's only. What the heck does it matter I would still be paying for the food . I was told if I couldn't eat a whole adult size burger I could take half home for supper, can you imagine a soggy bun with slimy lettuce not something I would find edible and I would probably end up with an upset tummy. I ordered bread and fries and there was that much left over, I thought blast it and asked for a doggy bag and took it home to feed the birds. Sorry but the food and the service was well under par I will not be eating there again such a pity as I am a local.
  • Great place after a great day - awesome beer and ciders.
  • horribly slow service
