A great tour around the Banks's brewery today, I have done quite a few brewery tours in my time and this is one of the best! A group of around 18 people, Bob our guide was entertaining, welcoming and very knowledgable. The tour itself lasted around an hour, including insights into the brewery's history and the brewing process itself. At... More

Really enjoyed the tour. Bob, the guide, was as entertaining as he was knowledgeable. Not to mention the pint and half of beer at the end of it!

It was a Christmas gift and both myself and my husband thoroughly enjoyed every minute. It was informative and interesting and as the brewery is practically on our doorstep we wish we had done it sooner. Even the shop was well priced.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Banks's/ Marston brewery! Our tour guide was Alex who had a great knowledge of the brewery history and the local area despite being originally from up north! He was easy to listen to and good fun into the bargain! We were pleasantly surprised as to how the beer is still traditionally made, opposed to... More

Arrived a little early as not sure of area for parking (no problem as we parked just along from the entrance to the shop). Welcomed by Alex who served us with coffee and some cheery chat. Hugh then gave us a very informative tour which we enjoyed. Rounded the evening off with a refreshing beer. Made a few purchases from... More

Great to see you enjoyed your tour and were well looked after. It is a shame you were unable to bring your father along for the tour as it is still a working brewery we are very limited with the changes we can make in the space available. However if you would like one of our guides to have a... More

We had a fantastic tour at the brewery. With Hugh as our guide, we were given a behind the scenes view of the workings of the brewery and how the perfect beer is made.

Thank you for your recommendation. We are still a working brewery so we love taking tours around and showing the brewery off.

Fun and informative tour of Banks's Brewery in Wolverhampton by Alex, who seems to know everything there is to know about crafting the perfect pint! Followed by some self-served beers in the bar (included in the price of the tour) with more words of wisdom from Tony. Both lovely chaps who are more than happy to share their extensive knowledge....
