We’ve just been asked to leave the premises because we have our 8 month old daughter with us. There are no notices, and we’d been standing there for about 10 minutes with the pram. I won’t be heading back

Producing some of the best quality craft beer in the UK at present, Cloudwater are a must if you get the chance to drop in to their barrel room. At £3 a beer flat rate on draught it’s a great deal, and an authentic experience...More

Great beer tour. Very knowledgeable brewer. He made it very interesting without getting too technical. This seems to be a labour of love rather than an attempt to make a lot of money. New brews all the time, 150 planned for the coming year! And...More

I didn't see anything up to say you couldn't bring children, but I'd probably advise against it - it's just a warehouse of benches with people drinking and there's nothing to hold a child's interest.
