About
T&R Theakston Ltd is one of the oldest family breweries in Yorkshire and home of the legendary Old Peculier Ale. Visit this historical brewery in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales town of Masham. Experience first hand the craft and skill that goes into brewing our beers, the brewing process is built on almost two centuries of tradition, passed down through five generations of the Theakston family. Have a pint of our legendary beer in the Brewery Tap - The Black Bull in Paradise, names after the original inn, the Black Bull, where Robert Theakston first brewed our legendary ale and also the site where our brewery stands, once known as Paradise Fields. There is plenty to do and see including the Cooper’s shop where the Cooper crafts the wooden casks – one of the last remaining working cooperages in the country. Leave plenty of time to browse the gift shop full of ‘Peculier’ souvenirs and other Yorkshire delights.

Only 5 mins walk from town centre . Very friendly staff. Large gift shop. Bar area quite busy. Took our drinks outside. Tried the Spirit of beer which was 40% proof. Like neat alcohol!! Lovely little outdoor garden with pretty pansies in planters. We didn’t tour the actual brewery dept just the shop / bar.

The tour of the brewery was really interesting and informative. I never realised that brewing this beer was so labour intensive.

Visited brewery recently dismayed to find dogs still not allowed in bar also very surprised to find the prices are more expensive than other local pubs I’d have thought beer may be cheaper because obviously no transport charges. Another.surprise was the price of a small packet of crisps £1.75p where on earth did that price come from. Still great beer and Stuart behind the bar is one of the main reasons we still visit could be improved if Lyn and Katie were re employed not been as friendly since they left

We have been coming here for years, we brought our late dog here and enjoyed many a weekend by the fire and planned on bringing our rescue dog here when she arrives. Unfortunately we got here today (dog not with us yet) and first thing we saw was a sign saying due to space dogs allowed outside only. I'm struggling to see how there is suddenly less space now inside? When we asked the lady serving she said there had been complaints about dogs. Surely the best thing would have been to address any issues at the time rather than banning all dogs? You can sit outside and there are some heaters but it's only covered on top not at the side so still very cold. It's a shame as we won't be coming back now because of it. All other pubs and the Black Sheep are incredibly dog friendly and I do think Theakstons will lose custom because of it.

We went on the brewery tour which was very informative with a tasting at the end. A great way to while away a rainy morning.

Brewery tour was made special by Stuart, top bloke! Amazing pint of O.P. Afterwards. Best dark ale on the planet! Lovely old buildings and so glad it was bought back to be privatised once again.
Just a small hint for black bull in paradise. Maybe you can’t sell it for the same price, but the pub down the road sells O.P. For 25p cheaper a pint. Please equal the pubs prices and you will get more custom, including ours.
