What is it good for?
The Beer Hall and Beer Kitchen is a new addition to the Brewery and, like its beer, the food is outstanding. Head chef Kester Marsh and consultant chef Steven Doherty, once head chef at La Gavroche, have done an excellent job in devising tapas that match great food with great beer.
The Brewer's Lunch. Roast ham and fried apple, pork pie, Brodie's prime sausages, black pudding, roast beef, bread and butter with pickles.
Who's the boss?
Alex Brodie, managing director, Hawkshead Brewery - leading the food-matching concept and challenging the lamentable British drinking culture of drinking without food and eating without beer.
Try the beer tapas - food from £3 to £10 and eaten with a pint of Lakeland Gold. Delicious.
What's the damage?
Lunch can be just £10, but you can go up to five courses for £25 including a pint.
