July 10, 2017
Last week was our Brewery Bar’s first full week open. Our first weekday lunches, our first weekend of drinks and our first Sunday lunches. We were open from 12 on Wednesday, through until Sunday evening.
And what a week it was.
We have been absolutely overwhelmed over the past week - the bar was busy from 12 every single day, absolutely rammed come 5pm and by the end of each night, still full to the rafters. Who would have thought a bar on an industrial estate in Newport would have been as busy as our bar next to the Principality Stadium on a match day?!
It was incredible to see everyone coming down to see what we’ve done to the place and we are over the moon that the reaction has been so positive. We couldn’t be happier with the feedback we’ve received and we hope all of you that came down could not be happier with what is hopefully your new local. Thanks for your patience - as you can tell, the launch has been incredibly popular and we’re far busier than we ever thought we’d be.
Being our first week, it was always going to be a learning exercise. We’ve used it to analyse what we could do better and how we can improve for next week, next month and for years to come!
The first thing we have recognised is that we need to split the bar and the restaurant into individual areas. This will reduce the waiting times on food by ensuring that all food orders are going to the same area and our team can dedicate time here.
By designating this space, we can ensure that customer service is top quality and we can offer food service to anyone who visits.
Thanks to all of you who came over the past week. The support has been absolutely insane and we can’t wait to see you again. We’re chuffed to bits that the community has come out in force to welcome us - we’re always looking to improve the standard of what we offer in return! See you again soon!
