A good tour on a sunny afternoon. Interesting brewery tour, not too long, with some tasting samples (or tea) at the end of the tour. Our guide was very pleasant but needed her notes to read from for some of the time. Nice restaurant and clean facilities. There is also a shop which sells the beers and glasses as well... More

The Brewery is the old traditional Brewery, Excellent tour and tour guide. The choice of 3 x 1/3 pint samples is a great idea at the end of the tour. Gardens are an added extra or can be viewed without the tour.The bar/restaurant has a nice atmosphere we did not eat there but the food looked good with many people... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our day out here. Lovely lunch, friendly staff and very informative tour of the brewery but we weren't expecting such beautiful gardens as well. They are so well-maintained and a pleasure to walk around.

These gardens are small but are very, very beautiful. The tearoom has an excellent selection of cakes and snacks. You have the added bonus of being able to try a selection of different real ales. The gift shop has a nice selection of items including some seasonal special beers you are unlikely to see anywhere else

I had the pleasure of visiting the brewery last week and thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Informative and friendly guide, well stocked gift shop and the chance to try out their brews afterwards. I didn't get the chance to visit the gardens but they looked lovely. Did notice that they hold one-off special events, would have been great to have... More

The gardens at the brewery are worth a visit alone. The brewery tour was very interesting, although on my tour I thought the guide could have been more knowledgeable, as she read everything from notes she carried. Having said that she was very pleasant, and it was obviously new to her. The tearoom is very nice, as is the food,... More

I first visited these lovely gardens 3 years ago but unfortunately due to some heavy winds i was unable to see them in their full splendour. After the recent spell of fine weather i decided to revisit the gardens to take some photographs. I found the gardens an array of colour .There are some beautiful Tree specimens on view and... More

This hidden garden is something that visitors to Wisbech should not miss. Checking opening hours is a must as it is only open on a couple of days a week
