Overview
More
The Totnes Brewing Co is situated at the bottom of Totnes Castle. As well as brewing their own craft beers right in the bar on a weekly basis they also stock a huge range of guest craft ales & ciders - local and international. If you love craft beer this is a must with "probably" the largest selection of beers and ciders in the area (usually over 100). The beer garden is a perfect spot from which to admire the Castle and the bar is warm and cosy at night - with an open fire on cold days. Food platters to go with beer are served during the holiday season and people are welcome to bring their own food when the kitchen is closed - they are dog friendly and have free wifi. Children welcome during the day and early evening.

Great beer and a great atmosphere - friendly, helpful staff, relaxing atmosphere and a chilled vibe + the added bonus that you can bring in take away food from other restaurants (and there are many great ones close by) - possibly shouldn’t be reviewing this...More

We're regular visitors to Devon and I always struggle to find a decent pint of ale. No shortage of big brewery beer taps but not much in the way of craft ale to be found. This place does some really good ales - good selection...More

Amazing selection of beer, cider and wine. Beautiful, cozy interior decor. Friendly staff. Dogs allowed. Incredible outdoors area which backs directly onto the castle! And though they don't serve food, they're very happy for you to bring food yourself or even to order takeaway into...More

Warm relaxed atmosphere, sparkling with a bit of the Totnes magic. Wide variety of customers, all ages, clearly a place for creativity and fun. Not to mention the beer, I love the beer festival every week philosophy, I will have to come back often.

I come here often and enjoy the beer very much. On this occasion I tried a Gin cocktail with crushed strawberries, it was so delicious, beautiful looking too. The best cocktail I’ve ever had well done

Unisex toilets - floor, seat, toilet covered in urine. Bare, rough plaster on the walls which will just soak up any more stray urine. Lovely. We sat at a table and a really nice lad said he’d clean the table. He squirted neat bleach on...More

Friendly knowledgable staff, great craft ales from near and far. Happy to let you taste before you buy. Enjoyed being able to bring in our food from curry stall in market. Dog friendly and locals don’t bite.
