Great tour

Had a great tour round here a while back. Excellent knowledge from the tour guides. If you can get to the brewery beer festival it's really something!

The tour starts off giving you the history of the Hicks family the founders of the brewery. The brewery tour was interesting showing you different stages of the brewing ending with a tasting of different beers. Well recommended for adults.

fascinating insight into a working brewery! A very informative tour led by Pat was enjoyed by my husband & son. They thoroughly enjoyed their afternoon & particularly appreciated the free samples of the beers. I joined them for a coffee afterwards & we finished the afternoon with some retail therapy in the well stocked shop.

Had a brilliant tour with Anne around the brewery. It was enjoyable and interesting..even for the non ale drinkers! It is well worth the money for the 90min tour and the numerous samples of beer! We stayed after the tour and lunch afterwards in the pub and the food was lovely.

Tracey was our tour guide and brought the brewery and process to life. It was thoroughly enjoyable and even my fiancée who isn't the biggest beer fan had a great time. It was brilliant to be able to see, hear, smell and most importantly TASTE the product on out tour.

Great tour, very interesting and Anne our tour guide was superb. Great value for money, 90 minute tour plus free sampling of all the ales. Lunch was good too. I would recommend to my friends if they are down in Cornwall.
