Please Note

We are a working brewery – our Taproom is based within our brewery warehouse so it can occasionally be noisy if production is still happening and there are hazards that are not usual for your average “pub”!

For health and safety reasons and for the enjoyment of our guests – children are welcome until 7:30pm but must be supervised and remain with responsible adults at their tables at all times / Friendly dogs welcome but must be kept on a lead at all times. Thank you.

The Taproom is a proud part of the Everyone Welcome Initiative.
