We spent a fantastic afternoon in the lower function area at a birthday celebration. We were surrounded by the fermentation tanks. This place produces a fantastic range of beers. It is very pleasurable sampling them.

More than a good pub meal due to in-house micro brewery. Well worth a visit for the beer alone however the meals are also worth trying.
