Brewers Fayre Weymouth - Review

I love finding family friendly places to eat so I was quite excited when we were invited to review the Brewers Fayre pub in Weymouth. I used to go to the local Brewers Fayre with my family years ago and have fond memories of my sisters playing in the Charlie Chalk play area. I hadn't actually been to a Brewers Fayre pub for years so I was looking forward to seeing how things had progressed.

Brewers Fayre have recently had a bit of a makeover and all their play areas have been refurbished to incorporate the Dennis the Mennis theme. The pics on the website looked great so we couldn't wait to see for ourselves.

After a lovely afternoon exploring the nearby country park, we had a table booked for 5pm. We were shown to our table straight away and Elliot was given a colouring sheet and some crayons. We decided to sit by the play area entrance as we knew Elliot would be in there as fast as he could! "Play at Brewers Fayre" is a Dennis the Menace themed play area with a large softplay zone, grabber machines (where you win everytime!), a quiet area where Dennis was being shown on the tv, a counter which served drinks and snacks and most importantly plenty of staff on hand to supervise the playarea. The cost was £3 for 90mins which isn't too bad atall - if it means Elliot is entertained whilst we are waiting for food then I'd probably pay double that!

Elliot zoomed off to play whilst my husband and I took a look at the menu. There is lots to choose from on the menu including a hot chef's counter which has a different theme each day. All the prices for food are very reasonable and there seems to be lots of offers including a great daytime value menu featuring 2 main meals for £10. Unlike other pubs, this offer is on until 6.30pm which is perfect for an inexpensive midweek dinner treat if you don't fancy cooking!

The kids menu is also very good value with 2 courses for £4.49. Theres loads to choose from so even the fussiest of children will find something they like and whats great is you can change the sides to suit. We picked Spaghetti Beano-ese for Elliot with garlic bread and peas.

Within about 10 minutes of ordering, our food appeared.  Great for us, not so great for Elliot who didn't want to come out of the play area! I had scampi, chips and mushy peas whilst my husband had a mixed grill. All the food was hot and cooked well - my husband didn't leave one crumb on his plate so I took this to mean he enjoyed it!! Elliot took a bit of coaxing but he was soon devouring his spaghetti with gusto.

The dessert menu looked amazing so we had to squeeze a pudding in. Elliot chose ice-cream, I had a chocolate chip cookie sundae and Paul had a knickerbocker glory sundae. All very good however we did have a little incident with Elliot's ice-cream...he dropped it on the floor!!!! There were lots of tears, and lots of melted ice-cream on the floor but the staff were great and a replacement was brought out within minutes, phew!

Pudding, round 2!

We had a great meal at the Brewers Fayre and were very impressed with the play area. It's quite rare to find a pub with a decent play area these days and this one ticked all the boxes. It was also very clean which is so important when you have small children. I liked the fact the room was supervised and it was great for Elliot to have the chance play whilst we were waiting for the food.

We'll definitely return to a Brewers Fayre in the future now we know what to expect!

*Disclaimer:  We were provided with a voucher to use towards our meal but I have been 100% honest with my review

  1. Looks like a good honest deal - lovely food, good service, child friendly, very reasonable prices. As they say, what's not to like?

  2. This looks fab! Anywhere that has a soft play area that you can send the children off to play in while you wait for food is a massive winner to me! I think every restaurant should have soft play! Thanks so much for linking up with #twinklyTuesday
