About
Old Dairy Brewery, started in 2009, is a traditional award winning micro-brewery nestled deep within the hear of the 'Garden of England', just moments from the picturesque market town of Tenterden, Kent. Our brewery is housed in two old World War II Nissen huts just behind the Kent and East Sussex Steam Railway. We brew a range of traditional English beers to exciting craft beers in bottle, cask, can and keg. Our Brewery Taproom and shop are now open 7 days as week from 10:00 (check our website for seasonal hours). We offer brewery tours on various days - pre-booking required via our website. Our tours take 1.5 hours and include a tour of the brewery and a chance to sample our beers. Group bookings also available for private tours.

Great tour*

We've been on several tours lately but think this one was top! Ginny was very personable and knowledgeable. It was cool to see a small scale brewery and even cooler to be able to sample any variety they had. Would definitely recommend a visit followed by a mooch around the lovely town of Tenterden.

We stopped by after visiting the steam railway, we found it by pure chance & we wished we had found it earlier in the day. The bar is stunning, the window inside to see the brewery is amazing. The staff are so lovely, our 8yr son wanted to stay all day and chat. Overall a beautiful relaxing place to get a really good drink.

We received a warm welcome upon arrival at the Old Dairy. Happy staff with knowledge about the Ales on Sale. A lovely bar next to the brewery with friendly locals only too happy to chat. Decent ale and a bottle shop also. Well worth a visit

Good beer and friendly staff.

We came here to collect some beer for a function I am holding and thought we would stop for a quick beer before going home. We were greeted by really friendly staff and although there was no food offering we were told we could get fish and chips from the chippy a short walk away and bring them back. A couple of really lovely beers later we left very happy! Would definitely recommend.

Hello, Thank you for coming to visit us in our Taproom and also enjoyed your fish and chips. At weekends we do have Food Truck at the Brewery offering some fab Italian food. So maybe for your next visit. Regards, Virginia

Cosy Taproom
Jul 2021 • Family
Great spot, between the railway station and car park. Nice selection of ales and cider. And the flights make it easier to try the range and still drive home afterwards!

Also nice to be able to take away beer with no extra charge. Not sure if they encourage/support refillables, but that would be good to see promoted.

One minor disappointment was the limited snack range. #firstworldproblems

Hello, Glad you enjoyed your visit to our Taproom. We are looking at offering reusable carryouts and also are aiming to start selling snacks in the near future, such as locally sourced scotch eggs, pork pies. Regards, Virginia

Amazing little gem!
Jun 2021 • Couples
How have I not known this bar was here before??
The setting was amazing. The food served at the Italian food truck was out of this world.
Great, insightful and well versed recommendations on the brewery’s fine list of ales by our server, who was on his first night working here. Gary I believe was his name.
Great host.
Great vibe. And really felt like a proper local pub. Can’t wait to return!

Hello, so glad you have found our amazing little gem - we have been here as a brewery since 2014, but only opened as a Taproom this year and are now open 7 days a week. So , hopefully see you again. Regards Virginia

Rubbish
Nov 2019 • Couples
We visited the shop rather than the tour of the brewery. To get there we had to avoid puddles, mud and cars through a gravel car park area which is fine had we been made to feel welcome.

Walked into the shop area, which is pretty much 3 shelves of beers, and we were hardly greeted. We bought some beers as we like them but we the lady behind the bar didn't exactly go out of her way to talk to, welcome or even show real interest in us.

Shame.

Hello, I am so sorry that your experience at our brewery was disappointing and I can only apologise that your greeting in our shop was not to our normal level of standard.
