  • We went on the brewery tour last Friday - the cost is £7.50 and you certainly get your money back in wonderful beer. The tour lasts around an hour and you get a brief overview of Thornbridge. We got a...  more »

  • Thornbridge Brewery tours Weds & Fri 1500hrs; booking strongly advised. Learn how a small local brewery went from local to global in 10 years whilst viewing (and tasting) how they make brilliant lagers and ales. There is a shop too stocking clothing, glasses and of course a range of beers to purchase & take home. The tour highlights how the brewery supports local agriculture and how they get the legendary "Jaipur" and "Lukas" over to Japan & Australia! The Americans have been slow on the uptake however; their loss - more beer for us here in the UK. The new bottling plant can shift up to 15,000 bottles an hour!!!
  • Excellent tour, 3 samples from the bar, an extra bottle while we were having the history of the brewery. Finishing off with a special barrel aged beauty. Very knowledgeable and passionate staff.
  • Not happy about the drop from 500 ml to 330 ml bottles. The result is to sell less not more. It would perhaps be logical to offer the stronger beers (>6% abv) in 330 ml bottles but not the entire range. An idiotic move by an idiot marketeer.
  • Not a visitor to the brewery but an infrequent online shopper. Very disappointed at the move from 500ml bottles to 330ml bottles. I don't recognise a comparable drop in price and anyway I like the bigger bottles.
  • A reasonably small Derbyshire Brewery that regularly delivers a decent drop

Where to stay in Bakewell

Consider a stay in one of the Georgian-style cottages that populate the town center. Shops and restaurants are readily accessible to centrally located B&Bs and inns. A country inn closer to the outskirts of the city provides peace and quiet, as well as a midway point between the town and the main attractions in the countryside, such as the restored halls and manors.
