I was asked to review Brewers Fayre at Phoenix Park, Linwood and went along with a friend to sample their new spring menu.
We were greeted and seated very quickly by a very pleasant and friendly staff member, offered a drink from the new menu. We both chose a glass of the red wine which is on offer at, buy 2 large glasses and have the rest of the bottle free.
We were then brought several small taster dishes from the new menu, we started with, chicken garlic chicken which was very succulent and tasty covered in a crisp breadcrumb coating, served with a very fresh salad. This comes with chips and garlic bread with a fried egg on top.
This was soon followed with the pepper squash and feta cheese tart which was my personal favourite, the crust was crisp and the filling very tasty and savoury, this was also one of the vegetarian options from the menu.
We also tried the beef chilli with nachos and the sticky chicken wings southern style with a piri piri dipping sauce, both of which we thoroughly enjoyed and we finished off with a very delicious banoffee pie and an even more decadent dirty mud pie which had everything you look for in a sweet, sweet, chocolate brownie, fudge sauce, biscuit base and crumbled flake.
There is lots to choose from on the new menu from steak to fish, burgers and sandwiches, breakfasts are also served and all very reasonably priced. A nice selection of wines compliments the menu along with the usual spirits and beers.
For me one of the important things to mention is the surroundings, the atmosphere inside the restaurant was of comfort and relaxed, this without a doubt added to our enjoyment of the whole evening, to the extent that we ordered another drink and sat very happily chatting for another hour.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant for families and couples alike, there’s something for everyone. Its close proximity to Glasgow airport and the motorway makes it a perfect place to eat before or after your journey, or just to go for lunch if you have been shopping at the adjacent retail park.
