I am fairly new on my personal craft beer journey but I have heard cloudwater is a must if you're in the area. A friend and I went to check it out. The bar itself is great, once you go upstairs and into the taproom...More

Firstly, the bar is upstairs next to the brewery to the left as you face it. Up to 20 taps on draft. Nice artwork. Light wood seating - stools, benches - gentle background music. Cards only. Some superb beers. Very fresh too !

In my opinion the beer of the moment. Fantastic modern bar with the full array of their beers to sample. Very friendly staff and they have a great shop too selling ales and merchandise. Definitely one to put high on your list to visit. Cheers

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

Very disappointed with this brewery tour and tasting. There was no tour to speak of. The group just stood in the middle of the production room whilst a very poor talk was given to explain how they make the beer. The guy conducting the tour...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.
