Myself and friends had previously spent a day with Richard Cook when he was head brewer at the Brewhouse & Kitchen in Milton Keynes and enjoyed it so much we decided to stalk him to Southbourne! We were tasked with assisting him to brew the...biggest batch ever of his award winning beer, Staycation. Soon realised that you need to be fit to be a brewer. We were fed and watered (beered) all day and Richard was able to answer the many stupid questions we had, all with good humour! If you are a home brewer or just curious as to how that delicious pint is made, get booked on a brewday! Your level of involvement is entirely up to you but Richard appreciates any help. We were able to try all of Richards own recipe beers throughout the day, the bacon bap breakfast and half chicken buffalo style lunch was very welcome. The venue is vast with a pleasant garden with beach huts and they even have Air BnB rooms upstairs (the venue was a dilapidated hotel before restoration). This is a full day experience where you see every aspect of brewing up to and including pitching the yeast. The beer we brewed, being an award winner, will be sent to every branch. After a final beer we were awarded a certificate and a mini keg if our choice made from the many beers we had sampled throughout the day. Many thanks to Richard and the team at Brewhouse & Kitchen for giving us a day to remember. Cheers.More

We popped into this brewpub whilst staying in Southbourne for a week. It didn’t disappoint, it’s huge inside and the friendly service, tasty food and lovely pint made for the perfect evening. We ordered a burger and a pie- both really good.

Thanks Ethan for your time and professionalism. You even remember all the drinks no matter how busy you seem to be. You also keep a professional temperament even when others appear rude. Well done!

We did the Gin Tasting Experience and had a lovely time learning from Ellie about the origins of gin. We found a lovely local gin.

A tiny one for just 3 or 4 cars but highly unlikely to get a space. Park wood Road opposite usually has some spaces , parking can be difficult in the area
