A local legend for many years now, the brewery is an interesting place and of course well able to satisfy your need for a tasty tipple on a warm Sunday afternoon.

Booked tour of a local beer brewery, plenty of samples to be tasted with a well informed humorous guide called Mel. A very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours.

The photo is of Mel our guide for the tour. Knowledge humour and he has written a book. Plenty of drink so have a dedicated driver. Just a nice place to spend a couple of hours tastings locally brewed Ale.

Mel was our tour guide. I can't speak highly enough of the tour or of Mel. I'd give 6 if I could. Great humour, great beer, great guide. Thoroughly enjoyable morning and well worth the money. Make sure you don't drive!
