Brewery tours run Monday to Sunday, starting from the Visitors Centre, they last approximately 2 hours. The first 1½ hours are spent around the brewery where you'll see our original steam engine, learn about our history and how we make our range of delicious beers. Once outside the Brewery, don't forget to keep an eye out for our working Shire horses, which still deliver beer to our local pubs. If you are planning a visit to the brewery and would like to see the drays on their regular delivery rounds it is always best to phone ahead and check that the shires will be working on that day. In any event, the tour of the brewery includes a tour of the stables so you won’t miss out on seeing these amazing animals. Upon completion of the tour, it's back to our sampling bar in the Visitor Centre for a ½ hour beer tasting. It is essential to book a Brewery Tour by contacting us on the phone or email. Cost: £14.50 per person, £12.00 concessions

Not particularly looking forward to this, but really enjoyed the tour. Great guide who made it fun, and fascinating to see so much of the original equipment - and the shire horses - still in use. Delicious beer to sample at the end!

We Toured today with Leon. He was a wealth of information about the process of brewing, patiently answering all of our questions. Old Hooky was the favorite of our group whilst tasting.
