We had a thoroughly enjoyable day here. The guide was engaging, informative and entertaining on our tour. It was great to see the workings of the brewery, and to smell those beautiful aromas. Great value for money, finished off with free drinks.

Great afternoon spent visiting Jennings Brewery. Alan, the guide, was knowledgeable and interesting and pulled a good pint at the end of the tour. Shop was good for beer related presents. Not suitable if you have problems with stairs.
