I was bought the visit as a birthday present: it was really enjoyable, comprising a talk from Paul (co-founder), tour of the brewery albeit not whilst production was taking place, and a tasting of 4 different beers including information on the health benefits of beer. We were able to bring our dog along too, although he didn't try the beer...Paul gave him biscuits instead!!

Brilliant experience of the brewery tour, made to feel welcome throughout. We had the beef and ale stew before the tour and that was superb. The tour itself was a great balance of being informative and light hearted fun, accompanied with of course an excellent array of beers to sample, a personal favourite 'Over the hill' a dark mild, so good we bought a box after to take home! I also liked the fact the brewery is very much a family owned and run brewery, the family are involved in every aspect of the tour itself, so you know you really are getting a first hand experience of the brewery. This was a gift for my dads birthday and we both came away having had a great experience. I would highly recommend as a gift or an afternoon out with friends or family. Matt & Dave.

Where do I begin!! The entire experience was fantastic from start to finish! Not only are you tasting award winning beers which back themselves up with their taste, but you are experiencing a family run small business in an intimate setting absolutely annihilating their competition with the quality of their beer. Father, son & mother team make it feel like you are a member of the family! I have never felt so welcomed!! Fantastically priced, superior quality beers mean that I will be back regularly even though I live 70 mins away, and next time I will be bringing friends, family, and my St Bernard (they're dog friendly!!) back with me. What an absolute find this was!! Make sure you visit so you can realise this too!!!!!! Sean & Sarah.

I bought the brewery tour and tasting experience for my husband and we had a brilliant time. It was very well organised and had a lovely atmosphere. Everyone was so friendly and we found it very interesting. We will definitely be going back!
