Description
The Riverhead Brewery Tap is ideally placed in the picturesque village of Marsden. On the ground floor in the bar, there are 10 real ale hand pumps several of which are permanently dedicated to the popular Riverhead beers brewed on-site. The famous Riverhead micro-brewery is housed downstairs in the cellar. Here we brew a wide range of beers all with a local connection. Hot and cold food is served regularly with all dishes freshly prepared on site.
