Very interesting tour, amusing tour guide and then we got to taste some superb beers in the brewery tap afterwards. If you're a real ale lover, you won't be disappointed.

We had missed the tour, but we spent a very pleasant hour sampling the beers. The bar is small but has loads of beers to try. Husband came away with a selection to take home.

We visited with friends from Liverpool and we tried the five sampler board , every beer we tried was delicious, the staff couldn’t be more helpful and the prices are very reasonable.

Don't know if I am too late to answer this, but dogs are very welcome in the brewery tap, but not allowed in production areas so wouldn't be able to come on the tour. Hope to see you here. Jamie
