The H&W brewery tour is very well organised and the tour guides are superb.It is a very informative and interesting experience. It is also well worth staying and lunching in the Brewry Tap.

We had advocado pear on crushed tomatoes on toast. It was delicious. It was very good value as well for £25 for two including spritzer drinks.. We will certainlyt add this to our list to return to.

Be sure to book the tour which begins at 10.30. We turned up in the afternoon, but were still treated to a mini - tour and a free drink.

what is sign posted as a cafe, is more a cellar pub with food. Atmospheric and unique for the area. Typical modern cuisine pub grub. Plenty of free parking on site.

Yes there is a lift down to the pub and restaurant area. The building has level access to the wine shop from outside.
