We went on the tour last Saturday morning. At first we wondered if we had come to the right place as it looked like a garage from the outside, but that is only where you meet to have your drinks. It is a basic tour...More

The Wickwar brewery tour should be avoided. It is not valve for money and extremely disappointing. The ‘tour’ consists of first visiting their ‘shop’ where you can sample some beer. The shop is in fact a very dirty, disorderly shed that on a cold day...More

HI Edfud, We are so sorry you didn't enjoy our tour. Most attendees enjoy the 'rustic' nature of the tour and really relish in visiting the historic buildings our brewery and shop are situated within. This is reflected in our over 90% 'Excellent' rating on...More

Our tour was a surprise in many ways. First, there were around 50 people booked on - for some bizarre reason I was expecting eight or ten. Then, as you arrive you're presented with a pint of BOB, in a nice Wickwar branded glass (glass,...More
