My wife and I recently visited the Jennings brewery tour during our stay in Cockermouth. We arrived in good time and enjoyed a tasty lunch in the coffee shop before our tour commenced. Our guide made everyone feel very welcome and informed us of a brief history of the factory and it's former owners. The tour itself was both informative... More

We attended this tour on 22/11/14 and really enjoyed it. We have done most brewery tours in the area and this one was not the best we have attended but not far off. Definitely worth a visit. Great selection of ales available to try after the tour also.

We made the trip over from Matterdale and when we arrived they said the tour was full due to a stag do booking. We explained our situation and they... More

This brewery has recently been taken over by Marstens but, refreshingly for this day and age, Marstens have not interfered with the beers brewed here and have actively enabled Jennings to continue brewing under their own steam! I have been on a few brewery tours and this one ranks among the best. The guide explained the brewing process with humour... More

We went on the tour when the taste festival and beer festival were on. Surprisingly the tour was half price and we got 3 halfs at the end worth more. Interesting history to the brewery and the impact of the recent floods.
