Excellent tour that took you though the whole brewing process without getting too beardy. Very good tasting session afterwards where you can taste most of the fullers beers. Dave was a great tour guide :-)

“Great start to the GBBF!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

This was one of our first stops on our every other year trip to London for the Great British Beer Festival.

We had never toured the brewery but are huge fans of Fullers ales and it seemed like it was about time.

Dave greeted us in the Mawsons Arms as instructed in the confirmation email. Start to finish it was a great tour and Dave really has a gift. He strikes a unique blend of expertise and humor, making us laugh throughout. He was patient with questions, maybe a little to tooo patient at times!

Even if you're not a brewery tour type of person, youll enjoy this one. Dave suggested a walk along the Thames afterwards heading to the Hammersmith tube which was a great idea. We ended up hitting 5 pubs with a new German friend we met on the tour.

Great time and highly recommended. See you at the festival Dave!

I went with my parent. Bored from the usual piccadilly tour we decided to do something different. Very proud for this choice!!! MR Dave is been a fantastic and funny chief guide!!! He was lovely and happy to show and explain us everything. I'll be back there with my boyfriend. I can't wait to have another beer testing.!!! All for only 10 £

“Nice tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

I think this is a nice brewery tour. You got to see everything in the procedure of beer-making. At the end there is a tasting of Fullers different kind of beers. The tourguide was really good and very keen on explain. It is very easy to find and we went to Kew Gardens that are nearby.

“Interesting tour!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

First we met at the Fuller´s pub, then a 2 hour tour (almost) at the Fuller´s brewery including tasting afterwards. Great guide - Jill, very knowledgeable. First we toured the brewery and got information about the beer making process and thereafter beer tasting (mostly ale and bitter).
A nice shop as well. Internet booking beforehand.
We combined the brewery with a tour to Kew gardens situated in the same direction. The pub "Tap on the line" at the platform at Kew gardens station is a traditional station pub, lovingly refurbished in 2013, charming with modern comfort.
