Beautiful building, very friendly assistant who sold us the tour then it went downhill after that with the unfriendly and quite surly tour guide. He muttered and it was hard to catch what he was saying some times.However he said regularly that he had forgotten what his script was. Given the cost of the tour, I think we were very let down. The beer following the tour was delicious.

With bad weather forcing us to put a pin in our hiking plans and finding ourselves at a loose end, we booked a brewery tour at the last minute. Rocking up and not knowing what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised to find a beautiful converted schoolhouse and an interesting looking gift shop. Our guide (didn't catch her name - blame the tasters we had later!) was very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions. Despite being a small brewery, there was lots to see and it was a really interesting tour. Afterwards we were able to choose three of the beers available (drivers were given a small bottle to take home with them - nice, thoughtful touch!). All three were delicious and went very nicely with the generous slice of Dragonhead cake I had!

We visited as a group and all had the excellent brewers platter of local cheese and amazing ham. We were also offered the thirds platter ie 3 glasses of different beers which was great for tasting. Certainly worth a visit and as we were on a bus we enjoyed the beers. Apparently they do music evenings which would be good fun.

We visited here for lunch. It looks great and much has been invested in this modern visitor experience. Not enough has been invented in the training of the staff though. It is not clear whether customers are to take a seat or be shown to a table. There is no welcome from the staff. We needed to ask whether to take a seat at a table.It is then not clear whether anyone is going to bother to serve you. Unsmiling waiting staff are too busy in some sort of stand off to pay any attention to customers. We needed to get up to request menus. No apology or attempt to redeem this paucity of service. We got up and left. No eye contact from the staff to understand this, because they couldn’t care less. That is a shame for the business owner and very disappointing for Scottish hospitality. I am sure Orkney Brewery will not miss our £30 or so, but, over time and others, this may make a difference. It’s an interesting and progressive Orkney venture - do not let some poor front of house staff let it down.

Staff unhelpful, waiting over half an hour just for sandwiches and chips. disappointing. Food was good when it came out 40 minutes after ordering. "Short staffed" isn't an excuse
