Owner description: Copper Dragon & Greyhawk are two of the finest Yorkshire brewers producing well-known brands such as Golden Pippin and Blonde Obsession ale. We moved to our current premises in May 2015 and offer brewery tours Monday-Saturday 11.30am where visitors can come and see a full operational brewery, have a pint and browse our gift shop. The Visitor Centre shop is also open Monday-Friday 9am-4.30pm is packed with bottled ales, gifts and brewing memorabilia. Home-cooked food is available on evening brewery tours (by prior arrangement only for parties in excess of 16).

From the minute our request for a tour was accepted by the Managing Director through to the glorious food in the bistro, Copper Dragon couldn't do enough to make sure our day was a success. Gordon, the Head Brewer, was amazing on our tour, the food was superb and the beer was delicious. The tour cost £10 (well worth it and you get a pint at the end) and the meals, whilst not cheap, were excellent value for money as they were so well cooked. We'll definitely go back!

My friend and I have now been going to the Copper Dragon Bistro every Saturday for two years and in all that time we have never had a bad meal, my favorite has to be the Challenger Chicken with saute potato,s with bacon strips and cheese not forgetting the wonderful sauce and a side dish of vegetables, the staff have always been helpful and friendly, try the many beers they serve, if you like to try them all just ask and you will get a sample of each. keep up the good work you Dragons.

Cannot be faulted. Super tour with a guide keen to answer our numerous questions. From a small back yard to a major player in the beer business, the owner an engineer by profession has harnessed his skills to develop leading edge production in a user and environmentally friendly environment. His son is the main brewer. A real family concern. The bistro provides superb food and the staff are happy. They know the owner and they work hard because he treats them right.

A real star rating. Oh and do visit the shop for that different Christmas present for the beer drinker.

we went today on the COPPER DRAGON BREWERY TOUR for my hubby's birthday , and had a lovely time
we were the only 2 people on the tour which was Great the guide was VERY INFORMATIVE and really new his stuff , but it wasn't boring he made it really fun
my only complaint is we got 4 vouchers for 4 1/2pints of beer , but unlike ALL the other tours wev'e ever been on i couldn't exchange mine for a soft drink as i was driving and refuse to drink alcohol , this has never been a problem on the many brewery tours we've been on before , they even let me do it in Bruge !!
All in All if this is the sort of thing you enjoy it's well worth a visit
