The place was so overcrowded you couldn't find a seat anywhere. Beers were good enough and cold but you can tell they are just funneling people through the doorway.

Came here for late lunch. Food was typical of a good pub, beer was really good. Did the tour, not much happening here on a Sunday. Tour would be better if something was happening.

My partner and I used our entertainment book for a buy one get on free tour of the brewery which also included 4 200ml glasses of beer/cider which we thought was good value for money with the deal.

Thank you Ashleigh for your feed back. Our Tour Guides are very understanding of the Brewing process but we have found if the tour guide elaborates in depth too much it goes straight over most guests heads & begin to lose interest so we have taken on board past suggestions from guests to keep it short but clear to the...

Visited for lunch and a tour. Ribs, Turbot and fries. Fine staff and friendly locals greeted us. The food was excellent and the beer was cold and a variety for every taste. We,are only here for 6 hours, but if we were here longer, we would come back

We went specifically for food based on the reviews we'd read on TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. The taster beers were a great way to sample a number of the drinks and the kid's toy box really kept our kids happy. The food really lived up to the hype.
