user reviews of the Bricklayers Arms, Aylesbury

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The Bricklayers is situated on a busy road. Be careful if driving here. There is a pay and display car park opposite and next to the Aristocrat. But the Bricklayers does have its own car park at the rear of the building. The pub is situated over a few different levels, giving it character. It also has a fairly large garden at the rear. Being a Fullers pub it had London Pride & ESB. But there was also a guest - Adnams Shingle Bells. Fairly welcoming place. But there are better pubs in the town.

Not a great experience. No food served despite website advertising food. Beer tasted flat once I was finally served and to top it off the landlord was unbelievably rude. Won't be returning.

Fantastic public house situated opposite The Aristocrat on the Walton gyratory. Very convivial atmosphere which lessened my frustration at having to wait nearly 5 minutes to be served as no barperson was in site, despite the pub being busy. London Pride and Tribute on tap, bar snacks aplenty and great to see two pubs in close proximity managing to avoid the standard makeover craze sweeping the country with ne'er a sign of a bright light or flagstone floor in appearance.

wonderfull charm to this split levelled feel pub. i visited in the early afternoon so dint get to experience what the true atmosphere of the place is like, but i love the traditional interior and quirkiness of the layout. the back garden looked decent for the summer months and despite most of them being 'off' on my visit, there was a nice range of ales from the hooky brewery, plus the usual fullers.

looking forasrd to popping in on a friday night, to properly get a feel for the place

Nice pub in a town where there isn't many left, maybe looking a bit ragged but not to the detriment of a pleasent evening.

Very cosy traditional pub that's been unchanged since Eyjafjallaj�kull last erupted. Three ubiquitous beers which have been known for their variable quality - but they were fine on my last 2 visits. Good beer garden at back with 2 curry houses within 100 metres.

This pub and landlord haven't changed for donkey's years apparently, a good honest boozer. Had 3 unadventurous real ales on, 6X, London Pride and Adnan's Broadside. Had a pint of Pride and found it to be in rather good condition.

Last visit was summer 2009 and was very disappointed, ordered a pint of Pride for my girlfriend and an Adnams for myself. The Pride was good but the Adnams was off, with a real vinegar tang. I took the Adnams back to the bar to change it but the landlord initially refused to change it, quite rudely in fact, but finally agreed after some discussion. Will not be going back or recommending due to his terrible attitude and poor service. I should note that contrastingly the other bar staff were helpful and friendly.

Traditional local, serving London Pride, Wadsworth 6X and Adnams Broadside. Visited with a mate to watch football and staff very obliging to the extent that the landlord risked his health and safety by standing on a barstool outside to adjust the dish to get the best picture! The 6X wasn't that great but Adnams was spot on. Sadly these sort of pubs are disappearing but will visit again when in the area.

Nice cosy pub with a fire place. Good hand pulled beers. Not tried the food but looked pretty good when I saw it going past.

Tend to only go there at lunchtimes, but Tina the barmaid (doesn't take you long to get on first name terms) is one of the best. Pleasant pub, if slightly down at heel. Beer can be variable but never had any problem getting it changed. One of the best pubs in Aylesbury, but this town contains some real stinkers.

This traditional pub is a rarity nowadays, with only new bistro pubs or crappy kids bars in town now. If you want a real english pub for real ale, you have to travel to a village out of town - hardly convenient if you live in aylesbury centre. As far as the music and staff are concerned, from my experience the staff have always been friendly and smiley, and the atmosphere is anything but dampened by the music choice. Each to their own I guess, which probably explains why staff attitudes may be different to some than to others. If you want a friendly service, how about being friendly in return? This pub is by far the best in aylesbury in my opinion.

The only thing good about the Brickies is that they have the Spanish TV showing a live English Premiership game every Saturday afternoon. Ooops that's let the cat out of the bag. Otherwise, crap beer, miserable bar staff and knucklehead clientele.

Pleasant sort of place, spoilt by crappy beer quality & barmaid who managed a complete transaction without speaking a word.

Seemed a nice old fashioned pub, with low ceilinga and traditional decor.
The only downside was the rubbish music which veered between Robbie Williams and an unidentified rubbish aylesbury band.
Would recommend a visit however.

A very pleasant, village-like pub with a plentiful supply of wooden beams, near the centre of Aylesbury. Small comfortable bar at the front, that extends out the back. It used to get very crowded on a weekend, but since more pubs have opened up in the centre of Aylesbury it's got quieter. In general there are three draught bitters; London Pride, Wadsworth 6X and Tetleys. Does cheap pub grub as well. The bitter is not always as good as it might be. In fact, on one in three occasions it�s not worth drinking. However, that�s a better ratio than the excuse for a pub across the road, The Aristocrat.

Great pub, great atmosphere, great spanish landlord. Rare to find pub with character, this definately hits the spot.
