Tris C left this review about Brewhouse & Kitchen

This started life at the beginning of the 20th century as a shed for Highbury’s trams, giving rise to the name Highbury Tram Shed.
It’s as described below, indeed accessed by the side patio, with the function room above; dating from probably the 1930s, a Truman’s lantern hangs welcomingly above the entrance. The interior is as described below, with distressed concrete, planks or bare brick walls, furniture being of many a mixed style, likewise lighting; there’s all the cupric paraphernalia of the brewer’s trade to the rear.
There were only three real ales on and all indigenous: Romford Pele, Project Cask Porter and Tramshed at a very agreeable £2.20 a half, being a good, traditional beer, probably in the Best style; the similarly priced porter was excellent.
This isn’t a bad place, I’ve been in worse traditional pubs, but I’d really rather sup in a real pub, rather than industrial drinking barn, so would prefer to go to the Myddleton Arms round the corner and off the tourist trail; the availability of just three real ales is hardly a major drawer.

---------------------------

I've now been here about 10 times now and on about four occasions, the beer has either been noticeably off or utterly undrinkable. How can a place which brews its own beers just 10 feet from where they're served get this so wrong? Do the staff check the beer quality? And if so, do they know what to look for? Talk about not being able to organise a booze-up in a brewery. Marked down accordingly.

A good example of the own-brew chain, in an interesting old building with plenty of space. The main room of the pub is tabled suitable for dining, but widely used by drinkers also. Lots of woodwork, copper fittings and sundry trimmings give a good feel to the place. At the back is the brewing equipment, with a bar down one side offering 4 of their own beers on handpump, plus a fair selection of keg craft. There is a further bar and function room upstairs and a fair-sized outdoor area at the front.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Brewhouse & Kitchen

Having enjoyed my more recent visits since this changed to a brew-pub, with a modernised and interesting interior featuring many visible items of brew plant, we were expecting a pleasant pre-gig stop (especially as the were some free seats in the front courtyard on a warm summer evening). However, following what was no doubt a busy World Cup weekend (which would have been in publicans' calendars for years), there were none of their cask ales and just three keg beers on offer: the 'house' Legend Lager, the hugely expensive Tongerlo Blonde from Belgium and another beer that I failed to note. Yes, they really couldn't organise a piss-up in a brewery!
