We did the tour in August, and were surprised to be given a heavy discount on the admission price. The reason soon became clear - the people who wrote reviews saying they couldn't believe that brewing was still going on in the old brewhouse have got their way - they have closed it down and are planning a much reduced operation with modern technology.
What we got, then, was a rather stilted tour of the old brewhouse and brewery gardens, and the sense that something has been lost - not least the jobs of many of the workers there.
The tasting beer provided was excellent and cheap - they have enough stock to supply their customers until the new facilities come onstream.
