Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We called in here as we didn't know where else to go, just passing through ..we were very disappointed.. our meal came with a salad but it was absolutely dripping in a dressing which left a big pool on the bottom of our plates. We just couldn't eat it. If you go there ask for the dressing on the side. On the positive side the young lady who served us was a ball, of energy and fun.. great service from her.

We dined hear in the early evening. It wasn't busy at all and yet we were seated right by the main thouroughfare. Our meals came out and one meal was wasn't as we ordered, so after some confusion, the manager sorted the problem. The other two of us ate our bluecod meals whilst the other person waited. The bluecod meal was very underwhelming. A few potatoes, salad and small fillet of bluecod was not what I was expecting for the price to be paid. My meal also had bones in the fillet, making the fish unpleasant to eat. It is a shame that it was such an unpleasant experience that we won't be heading back to dine here in a hurry.

We were looking for lunch on a windy Sunday , there didn’t seem much open so we tried this place . The All Day brekkie was below average for what it cost . Eggs were good ,hash browns good but the sausage was fatty and salty . The chicken cordon Bleu looked to be out of a box , chips were only just cooked and salad doused in vinaigrette.

We had a terrible vist to this place, we went for dinner and right from the start it was bad. The music was so loud you couldn't hold a conversation, they seemed very under staffed, having no one at the bar to serve people. We ordered garlic bread as a starter and it was that hard you couldn't cut it with a knife and chewing it was just about impossible. It was obviously microwaved. We talked of leaving but the place was full of people so we said we'd give it a try, we should have gone with our first thought. My stuffed chicken was cold in the middle and my hubby's chicken was tough and done in the microwave. Never were we asked about how our meal was or how we were doing. My advice don't eat here.

Seated at 6.30pm, ordered meal about 6.45pm [drinks served before] waited 1 hour for our meal, got up to walk out, when we were told our meal was about to be served, so sat back down, 1 meal came out COLD, 2 meals warm & 1 meal just edible. 2 meals that were served with salad, was JUST Lettuce. there were 2 staff in the kitchen & only 1 person at the Bar trying to deal with everything. [Bar, seat customers, meal orders, serving meals, clearing tables, etc] 1 extra staff arrived just before we left. We certainly were not the only customers who had to wait over an hour for their meals. Certainly will NOT eat at the Brew House again.

Went in for dinner shortly after arriving in Cromwell and was surprised they still had tables left on New Tears Eve. I am no longer surprised. When you walk in and see a sign saying “no refunds if you eat more than 40%of your meals” , you know you’re in trouble. Servers more interested in their night out than serving. Food was so so average. I had the fish burger. Bacon was old and so under cooked it was inedible. Frozen fish wasn’t dried so soggy batter. My partner order calamari and a side salad as nothing appealed. Side salad came out in a cardboard container… If you are going to have a restaurant and charge people $30 plus for food, it has to be a dam site better than that !!!

Absolutely appalling service, food was mediocre at best. Mains were delivered before we had finished entree Glasses sat empty without any enquiry as to another. Meals: Lady burger was acceptable but the 'winter special' was frozen vegetables and a piece of pork topped with a large piece of unrendered fat. Trainee waitress tried her best while bar manager stood by texting on his phone. To top if off the male toilet was flooded. Overall not an experience I would ever want to repeat.

Was never any greeting from barman when we arrived, should have known something was up when he brought out the cutlery along with a bottle of tomato sauce. At no time did he come out after our meal was delivered and ask if our meal was ok. Chips were like cardboard. ribs were under cooked and not many of them and the chicken schnitzel looked like it came out of a packet. This place would be on a par with the old Vic, Totally disgusting.

Ordered gluten free meal. The girl serving was friendly but forgot several things we asked for. This made me believe she forgot also pass on that my meal had to be gluten free. I became very unwell and it wasted the rest of our day. Not at all impressed this is poor customer service. Yes gluten free option was advertised on the menu, it’s why we decided to have our lunch here.

Spending only one night in Cromwell and needed dinner. Tried a couple of nicer restaurants but they were unable to seat us so we came here. Glad we came. We all enjoyed our meals which were: beef schnitzel, fish & chips, smoked salmon salad, and a lamb burger. Service was also very good.

We walked in and the barman stared at us. My partner asked about wine and he vaguely waved at some bottles in the fridge. My beer was good but the wine came out of 2 separate bottles that were both open. The country music was loud and dominating. We left and went to the Five Stags. Much nicer

Excellent pub grub, nothing fancy or pretentious, just a decent pub meal. We both had chicken parmigiana and a beer. Friendly barman, nice setting, not overcrowded or loud, although it was a weekday evening.

Informal place with good parking. The food was simple and cheap, and surprisingly good. But they do not aspire to be a Michelin star restaurant.
