Previous visitors will notice that things are a bit different. We are currently in the process of giving the site a thorough update. Please be patient with us while we build a new and improved platform.

New Ownership

At the beginning of September brewery founder Jon d’Este-Hoare passed the brewery over to it’s new owner and head brewer Mark. Currently the plan is for the brewery to continue running as it had under Jon, with the full schedule of events and range of beers.

Opening Hours

We currently open the brewery tap two days a week.

  • Friday 12pm – 8pm
  • Saturday 10am – 8pm

With the weather starting to get cooler we will occasionally shut an hour earlier if we have no visitors.

Bottled Beers

Recent visitors the the brewery tap will have noticed that bottled beer stock has been extremely low. Do not worry. Mark has been brewing plenty of beer to be sent for bottling and we should be back to our full range by mid-November. Beers that are being bottled include some of our regular brews, such as Restoration, Captain Cook and Black Buzzard, as well as our Christmas ale – Xmash.


  • We currently hold a folk music night on the 3rd Friday of each month.
  • Brewery comedy nights are on the first Wednesday of the month. (Please note this is a ticketed event. You can visit the brewery comedy website for more information.)
  • We also are often lucky to have Miss Kavitas Kitchen provide food for us. Recently this has included a chilli night and a pie and mash day, as well as visits with her usual delicious Indian food.
