Sadly, this brewery has closed.
When it was up and running this was a 'real ale' drinker's gem. A re-creation of a Victorian bar and chatting to the landlord/brewer.

Brewing, mastered
A 'must visit' for any fan of real ale. Ignore the unusual (trading estate) setting - once you are inside its just like any local pub, only cosier (max capacity 25). But it's not the decor you're here for - it's the diverse selection of intriguing but outstanding ales, all brewed on premises. On our visit we sampled 'The Desperado', brewed with mashed limes, 'Black Russian' brewed with coffee, and 'Waterloo Square' a more traditional variant. If you like the sound of those, don't be too disappointed when you don't find them - there are another 48 beers, available on rotation. As a Londoner on a visit to the area, this was an unexpected and welcome surprise.

This is a quirky, almost surreal, but thoroughly enjoyable experience that you must share.

Went after reading the trip advisor reviews. Looks like nothing from the outside. However, the inside is beyond expectations. A pub installed in the modern industrial unit with authentic Victorian fittings, down to floor boards and the bar. Beers excellent and reasonably priced. Marvellously eccentric.

This is quite possibly the best pub in the world and anyone who loves real ale and the simple old school ambience of a victorian pub should visit. They are open Thursday, Friday, Saturday nights.

A really special local Brewery
Jun 2014 • Friends
What a superb find in rural Somerset. On the outside is a grey industrial unit, on the inside a brewery with an attached authentic pub. What a great combination! The brewery offers a £5 brewery tour or a £12 Brewery plus tasting tour. I choose the £12 option. I sampled all 8 of the brews on offer. I enjoyed every beer and found the brewery tour interesting. Well worth a visit especially if your other half agrees to drive.

well hidden gem
Jun 2014 • Family
A little Victorian-style pub incased in a modern brewery, in the middle of an industrial estate, in the middle of rural Somerset. And it works! We really loved this place, the barman was friendly, funny and helpful ... The beer was lovely too (well it is a brewery) and £2.50 a pint!!! The locals drinking at the bar were full of cheerful banter and welcomed us too. We didn't try the snacks, but will do next time we visit. Which won't be too long...

Strange location
Jan 2014 • Friends
Superb beers brewed on site but it really is in the middle of nowhere on an industrial site so someone in your party will have to drive. The "brewery" itself is very compact and I wouldn't bother paying for the "tour" as this takes about 10 minutes. Much better to just sit in the quaint bar with a drink and fire questions at the brewer.

Nice pub in the middle of nowhere

This was quite a gem to be found in small industrial estate on the Devon border. From outside it looks, well, like the usual industrial estate would look, but what a surprise when you get in.. There's a very lovely pub, which looks like it has been there since victorian times.. ;) Good selection of ales and a good chat with the owner of brewery and his son.. Answered all out questions about the ale and how it's made! If you are in the area, not a bad place to visit!

Outside it's a shed, inside it's a beer drinker's heaven

Don't be put off by the industrial unit exterior. Inside you step back in time to when pubs were all dark mahogany with leather sofas, pull pumps and dim lighting. I could have sat there comfortably supping the wealth of draught ales all evening.
We booked the brewery tour because my wife has just taken up home brewing and we wanted to see how the real thing was made. It was entertaining and informative. We learnt a lot about proper brewing and Richard was very understanding, answering all our naive questions with patience and good humour.
This is a real micro-brewery in what amounts to a large garage. But the principles are the same as the big brewers. Here you'll hear about (and taste) boutique beers made in small quantities for discerning palates.
After Richards introduction to the magic of brewing we settled into the snug bar and enjoyed tasters from the huge selection of draught ales produced by Masters. As my wife was driving she settled for a delightful bottled Ginger Beer.
I would equate this to visiting one of our local cider farms - intimate, friendly and eye-opening.
You can visit the pub part of the brewery without taking in the educational tour. Best look at the website for opening times.
