Brewery tours run Monday to Sunday, starting from the Visitors Centre, they last approximately 2 hours. The first 1½ hours are spent around the brewery where you'll see our original steam engine, learn about our history and how we make our range of delicious beers. Once outside the Brewery, don't forget to keep an eye out for our working Shire horses, which still deliver beer to our local pubs. If you are planning a visit to the brewery and would like to see the drays on their regular delivery rounds it is always best to phone ahead and check that the shires will be working on that day. In any event, the tour of the brewery includes a tour of the stables so you won’t miss out on seeing these amazing animals. Upon completion of the tour, it's back to our sampling bar in the Visitor Centre for a ½ hour beer tasting. It is essential to book a Brewery Tour by contacting us on the phone or email. Cost: £14.50 per person, £12.00 concessions

Fabulous old brewery on the edge of picturesque Cotswold village. Excellent brewery tours and quality beers. Four beautiful working Dray horses, well stocked shop, café and bar all at reasonable cost. A really nice experience, happy to recommend and look forward to another visit

Excellent tour by Peter. Interesting couple of hours looking at how the brewery works. Great selection of beers to sample afterwards. Bonus meeting the shire horses and dray as they returned from their delivery round. Will back to purchase some beer soon.

We were both perhaps a little surprised when we initially saw the estimated time for the tour but the time flew by! Beautiful building and gives a real sense of the history behind the company and the care that is taken to produce their beers....More
