Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband and are I are regular visitors to this amazing multi awarding winning micro brewery, run by the lovely Gary and Bunny. We are so lucky to live close to this hidden gem! It’s so important to support local independents especially since the pandemic. If you are looking for a change of scene and like Craft beers, along with a selection of Botanical locally sourced Gins, this is your place. There is a taproom which is currently al fresco and is open everyday apart from Sunday’s. They also offer a takeaway service of food such as curries, cakes and savouries and also their famous award winning beers, this has been really popular since the lockdown. I would highly recommend a visit to this brewery just outside the village of Lower Beeding.

Interesting to visit this small brewery. We sat outside in the sunshine and enjoyed a good glass of beer from the barrel. Heartening to see the brewery owners enjoying what they do and making a success of it. Well worth a visit for the interest and to taste the beers.

During the pandemic, have been to Kissingate Brewery on a number of occasions.
Had some lovely beers to take home (always a varied selection), and, on Friday and Saturday, some lovely pasties, sausage rolls, etc. Always made to feel very welcome, and had some lovely chats. A highlight during these unusual times. Night recommended!

This was a thoroughly enjoyable day for my Dad and I. Our hosts, Gary and Bunny were so obliging, welcoming and friendly. Gary's knowledge on the brewing process was amazing and very informative, pitched just right for those that enjoy tasting various types of beer. Bunny laid on a lovely ploughmans which went down a treat with a couple more beers toboot. I highly recommend a visit to this fantastic micro brewery.

Very good beer selection for a small brewery. Both the owners are welcoming, friendly and professional. We had the brewery tour with detailed explanation and more than a taster of beer! . The lunch was ample followed by a home made scone with cream and jam. We purchased a few pints to take home and sample at our leisure. I recommend a visit.

First visit to the area. Scheduled a walk to coincide with a visit to Kissingate Brewery. Very friendly owners, beautiful location and top notch beers. I had a pint of Black Cherry Mild (and bought a bottle to take home) and a pint of the porter (sorry, can’t remember the name). Both were excellent and very reasonably priced.

If I lived local I would be here most weeks!

I wish them all the best and thoroughly recommend.

Gary gave my A level students a great guided tour through the brewing process from grain to beer, with an interesting mix of history and science. His knowledge and enthusiasm made the visit very worthwhile. I will return... without my students... and with next year's Biologists.
