Owner description: Established in 1875, this independent family owned brewery is steeped in history, heritage & traditional skills, as well as a wide collection of carefully hand crafted ales. With an on-site Sample Bar, Brewery Shop & Visitor Centre, there's certainly much more to Wadworth - a visit to see our Shire Horses, who deliver our ales across town each week day, is highly recommended! The Visitor Centre is FREE admission, however fees apply to our guided tours. Scheduled tours are available daily at 11am & 2pm, catering for up to 50 people, prices start from £10pp. Brewery Tours include a visit to the main production areas, our on-site Sign Studio; where guests can gaze at our unique hand painted pub signs, followed by a visit to the Stables, finishing with a tutored beer sampling session. Our Visitor Centre & Brewery Shop is open each week day from 9am-5pm (except bank holidays), and is always well stocked with your favourite Wadworth ales and gifts. **Advanced booking strongly advised!**

I was given tickets for a tour of the brewery for a birthday present. The tour was interesting and our guide gave enough information without going into too much detail.

The sampling at the end made all the stairs on the route worthwhile.

I was given a tour of the brewery for a birthday present and it proved to be an enjoyable day. Our guide ("Dec") was informative and funny.

The tour is billed as lasting 90 minutes. It was closer to 2 hours but this is no complaint.

At the end of the tour there is a tasting session of all Wadworths ales. Most enjoyable! Glad I wasn't driving!

The brewery is an old building with lots of steep steps. So bear this in mind.

We had a very interesting tour. Our guide was very informative and knew everything you could possiably want to know about brewing beer. We were shown the old part and the new brewing process, lots of stairs so wear sensible shoes. We saw the pub sign-writing and the beautiful shire horses and then we were back for the beer tasting, it was nice to try different ales as you tend to stick to the ones your used to. They also have a lovely little shop which is well stocked. We had a very enjoyable afternoon.

We visited Wadworth Brewery on tuesday 10 June and booked in for the 2 o clock tour. Our guide was Beki. She was really interesting, and was clearly very knowledgable. Learnt loads, stroked the beautiful shire horses, and finished off with a beer taster!! We have lived in Devizes for 6 years, but have never done this tour. It was well worth it. Thanks again to Beki

...although not such great value if you're the designated driver! :)

We live fairly locally and booked this tour to entertain some visiting friends and we all had a brilliant time. The brewery itself retains many of the traditional features and equipment alongside the modern production capability and the tour takes in all of this to give a fascinating journey from the brewery's early days up to today. The tour guides were fantastic, well-informed and entertaining. After the tour, the group moves on to the bar in the visitor centre where you can taste as much beer as you can get down you over the course of an hour or so. For the true connoisseur (like my other half) that's quite a bit and more than justifies the entrance fee by itself. There's a great little shop where you can stock up on your favourites too, at very reasonable prices. Thoroughly recommend for anyone living in or visiting the Wiltshire area.
