Once the site of the famous Romford Brewery, the shopping centre reminds of of this with the vast copper brew tank at the entrance. An open centre, with shops on two sides, also a cinema and bowling alley.
The shops include, TK Maxx, Boots, Hobbycraft, Sainsbury's Brantano and many others.
There is a large car-park and it is close to Romford Market and The Liberty.
Th ebrewery is a nice complex with spacious shops and a large car park. It is not the best of Romford shopping in my opinion but has a few nice shops and is within walking distance of the other shopping centres in the area and market.
It is unfortunate that it is not undercover and that all the shops are based around the car park making it hard to cut across from one shop to another safely, a bit of a bad design feature.
There are a nice range of restaurants in the main centre along with a cinema which gives another feature to just shopping (ideal to leave the men/kids in while you shop!)
What I love about the Brewery is the space. The shops are big and spacious, there is lots of parking, plenty of variety and a nice entertainment section. On weekends, the upstairs gets very busy, particularly with young people who go out to eat/cinema and then onto the bars and clubs, particularly the restaurants which have really long queues. There is a big cinema which has a nice confectionary section!, bowling alley and a kids adventure playground called kidspace tucked away in the corner. The restaurants include nandos, frankie and bennys, la tasca and outback steakhouse. There is plenty to chose from and makes a nice evening out where it's all undercover in one space.
In truth, the Brewery shopping centre really does not contain too many shops inside. There are a handful of shops downstairs including Sainsburys as well as a gym. And upstairs are a few places to eat such as McDonalds plus the cinema of course. So yes it is a shopping centre but don't go expecting a Lakeside, that's all! More than anything, I find the Brewery is a good place to park for all of Romford's other shops and places of interest though it would be nice if they did not charge for parking and offered it free. Then I would come more often.
The Brewery is a vibrant and lively shopping centre with some good food chains like Nandos, Frankie and Benny's and also has an arcade and a cinema which is good for extra entertainment. I go there regularly to eat out really and would recommend it as a place to visit.
dont normally use these review sites but having had a real bad experience at the pavillions bowling alley felt i had to do the rite thing and comment on the one in thed brewery.
good experience, food was good quality and when you bowl theres someone to fetch you a beer. arcade for the kids and football ona big screen for me. worth a visit
