The beers and cider were excellent. We had 3 great fish and chips. Staff friendly and knowledgeable. Take home a Growler of your favourite beer or cider. Worth a visit if you like draught beer

The "beer garden" is a great place for a light lunch whilst tasting the brewery's many beers/ales as it has fantastic views of the Stanford valley and mountains beyond. Whilst the service may be deemed slow it is efficient and friendly. The waiters often have...More
