Beautiful setting, Lovely people. Fantastic beer. A must for any craft beer lover. We always visit if in the area. Did not eat this time, but not been disappointed when we have eaten. Right on the river in an old windmill. Lets hope nothing changes with new partners.

been several times now and the quality of beer is always maintained. When they do not have an event on its usually quiet but at their beer festival, it gets very busy indeed. Not had the food yet but heard excellent reviews from a friend.
