We paid just £6 each (students) which included a very detailed and informative tour delivered by a very enthusiastic and knowledgable tour guide. We also got to taste a wide variety of their own brewed beers, would strongly recommend!:)

Paid a visit to the brewery. Arrived before opening but they kindly let us wait inside before a few mins opening. Very helpful bar staff. Explained the ales and beers to us. We had samplers before deciding on our pint. Nice place, worth a visit.
