Blackthorn _ left this review about Brewers Fayre

A new build pub attached to a Premier Inn on the site of the former Hill House Hammond office block, it follows the usual bland, corporate style of such places with little in the way of any character or distinguishing features.

Internally it’s all one long, open plan room, although divided in to a couple of different sections. Full height windows running along the front let in plenty of natural light, whilst the bar counter runs along the rear wall. A table opposite this had a selection of breakfast cereals laid out, presumably in readiness for the residents’ breakfasts the next morning. Flooring was a mixture of some attractive tiling, wood strip and patterned carpet whilst all the paintwork was in various neutral shades. The right had end was perhaps designed as more of a lounge area with a number tartan arm chairs as well as some deep leather ones. There was some exposed brickwork around including a chimney breast with a wood burning stove. Above this was a plasma screen showing a sports channel whilst various miscellaneous notices were dotted around which were presumably meant to be amusing – e.g.; a blackboard that said “I just rescued some wine, it was trapped in a bottle”. A much larger TV behind the bar counter was running adverts for their food offering.

The menu itself looked to be a mass produced, cheap and cheerful affair and was divided in to sections such as burgers, grills, fish, pasta and salads, classics, etc. The latter included the usual selection of pub grub dishes such as chicken and ham pie, sausage and mash, gammon, etc., and these were mostly priced in the £9 - £10 range, which struck me as a little expensive for that type of food.

Despite three pumps on the bar, only one was in use dispensing Butcombe. The solitary cider meanwhile was Thatcher’s Gold. There’s nothing at all wrong with this place, it was tidy and up together and the barman was friendly, but the lack of any character and the limited beer choice mean it’s best suited to hotel residents who can’t be bothered to venture out rather than anyone with a real interest in discovering good pubs.
