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.

  • Amazing, beautiful and fascinating old brewery. The tour was as interesting for the architecture and traditional machinery as it was for the brewing method explanation. Plenty to see, smell and...

  • Excellent visit to the brewery restaurant, shop and museum. The food menu had an amazing choice of traditional pub dishes amongst other more "exotic" dishes. I had the Draymans Lunch with the local pork pie which was both great quality and great value for money. Having a great range of locally brewed beer was the icing on the cake. I will definitely be making a return visit in the near future.
  • Highly recommended - excellent museum, restaurant and of course beers. Great for lunch - we could have happily chosen anything from the menu. The Goats cheese fritter was delicious and the nachos fantastic, with plenty of cheese, pulled pork and jalapeños. Will definitely return.
  • Roz was an amazing tour guide! Two hours of being shown around the Victorian Brewery. Super friendly staff, gorgeous food, lovely bit or history! Not to mention the gorgeous horses 😍 Had the best time for my dad's birthday, even as a none Ale drinker I thoroughly enjoyed the history and process of making their products. Amazing! P.s. be careful with the stairs they're super tiny and steep. Also the cobbles can be very slippery. The tour guide does warn you though before hand!
  • A fantastic tour led by Monty, huge amounts of knowledge and expertise with a generous enough tasting at the end that you felt you got to really try the beer. Lovely food from the malthouse and a good shop stocking lots of merch and local produce. Thank you for a great afternoon out!
  • Lovely old building and.some.nice beer! We went over for the Classic Car Show today, which had a good selection of cars and bikes.
