I came here a number of years ago, ostensibly for the beers, when the Cropton Brewery was down in the cellar. I don't know if it's me, but since the brewery has massively increased its capacity and has had a name change, the beer quality seems to have deteriorated.
Came for a Groupon deal brewery tour and 2 course meal and whilst the brewery tour was informative, the anticipated taste sensation afterwards never materialised.
I sampled six of the beers and all seemed to have no discernible aftertaste. Frankly, I have tasted much better ales on my travels.
The two course meal was so-so. The smoked salmon was quite tasty but the stuffing was overcooked for the main course and the vegetables a bit bland.
Overall,I came away disappointed. Maybe my expectations were too high, my memory is just playing tricks with me re the beer or, the second sentence of my review hits the nail on the head.
Would I visit again if in the area? Probably not.
