Beer is great, food is delicious, vibe is excellent. Nicely situated, too, around the town square. If you like good beer and tasty food, be sure to visit while in Clarens. You can buy some beer to take home too!

Totally lacking in service. To say partially incompetent staff would be a complement. Avoid disappointment and avoid the Clarens Brewery.

The craft beer was great I enjoyed Blonde Ale and had one, and the wife had a cup of tea. The lunches look good and well-priced. Clean toilets onsite and parking in the road in front of the Pub.

This was my second visit and I must admit that it was a truly disappointing experience. Firstly the place was packed with visitors and the people at the table next to us had an extremely annoying dog that growled and barked at other dogs and...any person that got close to it. We were seated in the undercover walkway area as rain had been predicted. When the downpour came the covered roof was of no use as the water came pouring down through several gaps, partially soaking us. Weather woes aside the burgers we ordered were great and the portions on the large side. The chips are especially tasty and worth a mention. When it came to the beer tasting, it was a disaster unlike any other beer tasting I have experienced as a craft beer drinker and to my mind a total rip-off. We were four people in our party wanting to taste the beer, and having experience of beer tasting we decided to take two 4 glass taste boards comprising the selection of craft beers on offer, thinking that as is the norm at all other craft beer establishments the tasting glasses would be at least half full, thereby allowing each of us a taste before ordering that which we liked. When the tasters arrived we were shocked to see that each tasting glass had less than a centimeter of beer in it and not even enough for a wee sip each. A total let down leading to none of us ordering or buying any of the craft beers on offer.More
