Informative tour learning about the process of beer making, both present and in the 1800s. Delicious tasters included as well as other edible goodies. Thoroughly recommended!

Excellent and great value tour. Very knowledgable tour guide about the brewery, beer and local history. Opportunity to sample 3 half pints of beer at the end which were all unique and tasty.

Good trip around the Jennings Brewery. Enjoy the great-smelling hop room, Goggle at the ginormous mash tun, and Admire the way they’ve used the well-water to make a decent-tasting pint. One brew a day they reckon; and that’s quite an undertaking. Note; beer is flavoured...More

Great few hours. Very generous with the free samples. Very informative. Have a go at pulling a pint yourself. Also have us chutney in biscuits and port. Don’t drive here !!

Great tour led by Geoff. He kept it interesting and informative. Only a small brewery so the tour doesn’t take too long. Tour ends with sampling the product 🍻👍 Well worth the entrance fee.

We enjoyed the tour around the brewery. The tour guide was very helpful and informative. The brewery is fairly small but has a long history. The beer is good.

I think that Jennings brewery has an age limit of twelve years for the tours, but why not phone and ask them. They may have another solution.

You are welcome to bring a dog into the shop - but they can't go onto the tour due to health and safety. Many thanks
