  • Brewery with a recent history offers a guided tour (with additional charge and only in English) with wine tasting. In addition to the brewery and the shop you can eat in the large room, nicely decorated, with wooden tables and chairs. The service is not particularly fast, but tasty. Families with children will find children's menu, a collection of stamps and wine tasting at the end of the visit will be made with 3 different types of beer for adults with 3 drinks for the little ones!

  • Good place for lunch. Burgers, soup, sandwiches. Children's menu and toys too. Obviously good beer to go along with the food. Try a tasting paddle of 3 1/3 pint glasses of various beers on tap for the day. Good atmosphere in an interesting building.
  • Amazing microbrewery with a brilliant gift shop. Friendly and accommodating staff. The only downpoint was lack of transport to here as we didn't take the car so that we could sample the beer. Worth the taxi fare in my opinion though!
  • Popped in hoping to have a hot drink and we stayed quite a while! Lovely, helpful staff, and a great café too. Plenty of beer - understandably! - as well as a gift shop, and extra information about the islands, and the venue before conversion. This isn't (yet) on the tour runs, so you won't get mobbed. Definitely worth a visit.
  • We waited 20 minutes for our soup, they served us the wrong soup! We waited a further 25 minutes for our mains. Redeemed by the fact that the beer and the food was actually very good. Slightly overpriced!
  • Whether or not you are interested in brewing this is an excellent place to stop for lunch or a snack. Excellent quality food and friendly service. And if you are interested it has a variety of beer on handpump ( not easy to find elsewhere on the island) as well as the complete range of bottled beers.
