The National Restaurant Awards

The 5th annual National Restaurant Awards was held for the first time at The Brewery on Monday 8th October welcoming a host of the UK’s top chefs and restaurants.

The menu on the evening, created by Brewery Executive Chef Tom Gore, was extremely well received with many of the celebrity chefs in attendance commenting on the high quality of the food and the excellent presentation. The menu for the evening was:

Beetroot three ways with soft goats cheese, cherry tomatoes and truffle vinaigrette.

18 hour slow roasted shoulder of lamb with Yukon gold topping, parmesan served with stem broccoli and spiced roasted carrots.

Classic warm sticky toffee pudding with caramel sauce and macerated berries.

The top award went to The Ledbury for the third year in a row and all of at The Brewery would like to congratulate them on their well earned success.

Feeling the love….

The Brewery has recently been going from strength to strength, hosting up to 6 events a day for a range of the worlds leading companies across a variety of industries. We have recieved so many lovely comments over the past few months that we wanted to share a very small selection of them with you here.

‘Just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you for helping to make the Opening and Closing Ceremonies such a success for us. Both groups had the most spectacular time and the feedback that we’ve received has been glowing!
The Brewery was pivotal in creating this once in a lifetime experience and I was impressed by the attention to detail, faultless execution and professionalism shown by both you and your team. The Retreat was undoubtedly one of the best event spaces I have ever used and you absolutely delivered on every count. The food and drinks were exceptional, the service was superb and your flexibility and support on Opening Ceremony day was a life saver!
Please do extend my sincerest thanks to the team for all their hard work across the events – and a particular vote of thanks to both Graham and Chef for their efforts on both days.’

‘Just wanted to say a big thank you to all at The Brewery! We had great service from the original booking, pre summit visits – including Jason’s time in discussions about the location and security and for the Sustainability Summit itself. In particular I’d like to thank your Duty Managers Graham and Richard and their teams for delivering all we asked for even at very short notice and with a smile!’

‘The food was fantastic – our HR Director said it was the best they have had on an away day (ever!) and there were many more appreciative noises about the standard of catering so please do pass this on to your team behind the scenes.
Personally from me – thank you for your assistance, it was a pleasure to work with you! You were efficient, helpful and above all always cheerful which I really appreciated.’

Exciting New Lighting Technology Comes To The Brewery

We are pleased to announce the installation of amBX intelligent lighting at The Brewery in the Smeaton Vaults and King George III spaces.

This system allows the simple creation of a fully immersive lighting experience for any event taking place in these spaces. Without any pre production the system reads the content of your video or powerpoint’s and changes the colours around the room to match what is happening on screen, so as your promotional video turns from blue to red as will the lights in the room. There is no need for a lighting desk or expensive production teams as the system does it all for you automatically.

If you do want to take control of the system this can be done via a standard lighting desk or more impressively it can be run by simply downloading a free I Phone app.

We would love to show you the system in action so please give us a call to arrange a site visit and demonstration.
