The bar at the brewery has a great selection of real ale. The tour guide, David, is brilliant. His highly animated tour keeps you interested and is at times hilarious. Well worth a visit

Called in to stock up. Nice to have a good choice of draught beers including some unusual brews. Interesting guns also available. Unfortunately I was the driver on this occasion otherwise visit would have been even better.

I booked ahead but the tourgiude said Friday's are usually quiet so if you wanted to go on a Friday you would probably be ok not to book. Booking is very easy though!
