Had a great time at this brewery. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable about the brewing process.
Had a nice time in the bar after the tour with Jan. Made out family very welcome. Great tasting ales.

We had a really good time here. Your entrance fee is payed back in beers and the tour was really well explained. Great value for money. The nice thing is, it is a working, but sm all, brewery. Tour took about An hour of which a large part focussed on the process, which I liked.

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour.
Although I'm not a beer drinker I have been to several breweries and this small brewery did an excellent job. The staff were knowledgeable and able to answer all our questions. This tour is covered by the York Pass but you only get half a pint as a taster, rather than a pint if you paid directly for the tour. Soft drinks are available instead. The tour ran over time because of everyone's enthusiasm but this was no problem to the staff.
Would definitely recommend this for the men.

We called in here on a Friday afternoon and had a taster in the bar before we "did" the last tour of the day. It is a small, working brewery so if you go expecting anything fancy, you will be disappointed. However, we found the tour really interesting and informative, the staff really friendly and knowledgeable and the beer superb. There was also quite a buzz in the place as local people were coming in after work. Well worth a visit if you like real beer.

We have done an number of brewery tours and really enjoyed them but this place is a total mess! As with any brewery, the staff are friendly and love their beer which tastes good. However this place is a total disappointment! The tour is short and uninspiring. Even worse the premises are dirty, the chairs are stained and the carpets filthy. Do yourself a favour and don't visit.
