Went as two couples to Hayman’s not expecting too much, but was pleasantly surprised. Charming and generous staff, lovely clean setting, fun creating and great drinks - what is not to like! Would recommend to anyone, 5 stars.

Tour exceeded my expectations. Staff were great and informative, experience felt very special. Group size wasn't too big so it still felt very intimate. Would 100% recommend.

You are greeted with a gin and tonic before you hear the background to gin making. You learn about the botanicals that go into flavouring gin, and are given a go at mixing your own flavours in a pestle and mortar. You later try there...More
