With samples of the spirits- the driver did not... More

Had a fantastic tour of this brewery last month! Really interesting tour, seeing some very old and some very new equipment. Fascinating to hear how it all works and lovely to finish up with a tasting and free glass. Tour guide was great and it was only afterwards that I was told it was only his second tour!

We went on an organised tour. It was very interesting as the brewery is quite unusual and very old. The beer is good. We had lots of free samples at the end of the tour

Choice of wines available was very good, with a range of prices from average to expensive. Staff were very helpful and they also have a website, which is good to know , when you are not local

Unfortunately not enough time to take the tour but the wine store is amazing. The staff are very knowledgeable and super friendly but never pushy. Amazing choices - and local gins! Well worth the visit,

Brilliant place - great to see the real way to brew beer - shame we had difficulty hearing the guy who showed us around. But great 2 hour tour and then a free tankard and a couple of pints of their beers free or a soft drink. Very interesting.
