Established in 1875, this independent family owned brewery is steeped in history, heritage & traditional skills, as well as a wide collection of carefully hand crafted ales. With an on-site Sample Bar, Brewery Shop & Visitor Centre, there's certainly much more to Wadworth - a visit to see our Shire Horses, who deliver our ales across town each week day, is highly recommended! The Visitor Centre is FREE admission, however fees apply to our guided tours.

Scheduled tours are available daily at 11am & 2pm, catering for up to 60 people, prices start from £9.00pp. Brewery Tours include a visit to the main production areas, our on-site Sign Studio; where guests can gaze at our unique hand painted pub signs, followed by a visit to the Stables, finishing with a tutored beer sampling session. Our Visitor Centre & Brewery Shop is open each week day from 10am-5pm (except bank holidays), and is always well stocked with your favourite Wadworth ales and gifts.

We visited on a Wednesday morning and caught the 11 am tour. Booking had been easy and free car parking when we arrived was an added bonus.

Only four of us on the tour made it all the better. The guide was very knowledgeable and humourous. The tasting session at the end was really good you got a third of a pint of all 6 beers.

My husband had wanted to go on this tour for some time and we joined some friends for the afternoon session. The young man who showed us round appeared a little wooden at first, perhaps because there were so many of us and it was difficult for him to build a rapport. However, he soon got into his stride and... More

Well worth the visit, especially when combined with the brewery tour. Some good archive stuff on the walls, and of course you can buy all the Wadworth branded stuff. Shame about the beer itself, but you can't have everything.

Oh my. What a tour. Amazing. Well thought out. Dec the tour host was spot on. Saw the Horses. Saw the sign writing unit. And then tried 6 1/3 of a pint glasses of the ale and stout. Enjoyed every moment.

I have been a fan of Wadworth's beer for a long time, and it was good to see the family-owned brewery where it is made. The tour takes about an hour and a half, and it was difficult to hear what our guide was saying for much of the time because of the background noise of the machinery. There are... More

Thank you for your review, we always appreciate feedback from our visitors. We're sorry to read that you found it hard to hear in areas of the working brewery, the Victorian machinery can be noisy in places, plus the nature of brewing in a building designed in 1885 does make it echo. We pride ourselves in offering a relaxed tutored... More

I was part of a group visit to the brewery. The lady guide was excellent, giving us lots of information about the history of the brewery and how the beer is made. I am not a great beer drinker but still enjoyed tasting a sample at the end of the tour. I liked the fact that soft drinks and tea... More

Belated bday gift and well worth the wait. Great guide who knew his stuff. Really enjoyed history of the business and the building. Other half loved seeing the working horses. Numerous tasters of fine ale topped off a well recommended tour
