Hook Norton Brewery is a regional brewery in Hook Norton, Oxfordshire, England, several miles outside the Cotswold Hills. Founded in 1849, the brewing plant is a traditional Victorian 'tower' brewery in which all the stages of the brewing process flow logically from floor to floor; mashing at the top, boiling in the middle, fermentation and racking at the bottom. Until 2006, the brewing process was powered by steam. Beer is still delivered in the village by horse-drawn dray.

  • Great tour of old Victorian Brewery. Nice interactive Tour guide Monty, and good to have a taste of a variety of beers at the end. Not a beer drinker myself but boyfriend enjoyed it and I bought some cider from shop after
  • Visited this brewery with 2 sisters and a brother-in-law. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit, even though I don't like beer. Our guide, Leon, was very good and explained the different processes really well. Thoroughly recommend.
  • One of the best brewery tours I've ever done! Scott was very informative and ebgageng throughout and the history is really interesting, the beer at the end of the tour helps too! I highly recommend this to any beer enthusiast's 👌🏻👍🏻👌🏻
  • Superb time had at the brewery today with my two daughters. Great food, topped off by guide Chris who gave us a fabulous tour of the old brewery. Hospitality second to none. Well done Hook Norton Brewery
  • Absolutely superb!! Booked the tour as a last minute birthday day out for my other half’s father and it was fantastic!! There’s truly something for everyone - with the gorgeous Victorian building, the exquisite origional machinery, the horses and the overall charisma of our tour guide Roz. Thoroughly thoroughly recommend for all (ages 18+) and it was incredibly good value. After the tour we wondered back to see more of the horses and then sat down for a delicious lunch in the “kitchen” - thoroughly recommend the pie!! Definitely worth a visit - and we’ll be back on a weekday to see things in action 🍻 cheers!
