Visited this place for their pizza night in March. We loved the evening! Great pizzas from Nether Edge Pizza Co but of course, great beers from Thornbridge Brewery too, with a wide variety to choose from, for all kinds of palates.

Firstly, there aren't signs from Bakewell, but it's not far. From Bakewell bridge, turn right at the Rutland Hotel islandand head up the Buxton Road. Only 15 mins by foot then into the Riverside business park. Very enjoyable tour which includes 3 samples to try and a nice glass to keep. We actually all got 5 samples and 10% off... More

We came on an organised trip from our local pub, and the whole experience was brilliant. The welcome was warm, and Ben the brewer led a very informative tour. After the tour we sat outside in the sun and sampled the twelve beers that they had on offer. Highly recommended for anyone who is interested in beer!

So the tour is £7.50 per adult, which alone is good value as it's very interesting, but included in the price is 3 tokens for half a pint, plus you get a bottle of beer during the tour, then you get to keep the Thornbridge Brewery glass they give you, and you get a discount voucher for the shop! So... More

We went just to the shop and it is their breakroom. It is a bit intimidating looking around when people are eating. They have a lot on display but you can only buy what is on the counter at the time. A bit confusing.

Sorry to hear that you found the staff on their break an intimidating experience. I can assure you they are a harmless and friendly group! But the shop and bar area is quite large so hopefully you were not too inconvenienced. The beers on display on the counter and for sale just mirrors those in the fridges and on the... More

We had a tour today, I think with Alex in marketing. I would genuinely recommend this tour, it was really interesting. We were told about the history of the company and how they brew their beers. We were shown around the premises and got to try several beers and were given a souvenir Thornbridge glass and discount in the shop.... More
