The Darling Brew Tasteroom offers a fabulous day out for all. The uniquely designed restaurant overlooks the state of the art brewery. Interactive beer tasting and beer appropriate menu, with focus being on locally sourced products. Large play area for the kids, outside seating available and plenty of parking. Large local wine list for the none beer drinkers too.
