Tour the Brewery

We offer tours of up to 12 people on request, which include a guided walk through the brewery and our process, followed by a tutored tasting session in the bar. If you’re really into home brewing and science, we can get down and dirty with some real techy stuff, or if you’re a stag group looking for a few beers with a bit of brewing thrown in for good measure, we can also accommodate.

As our brewery is relatively small, larger groups would be recommended to book a tasting session, which is always great fun and can be tailored to your group. Please get in touch with our events team to discuss your needs.


We offer tours for a minimum of 4 people (maximum 12)

Available between 12pm – 3pm on Saturdays.

The cost is £20 per head and includes tasters of our beers.

We allow approximately 2 hours for the tour and tasting.

Tours need to be booked in advance and we advise booking early to avoid disappointment.

Please note these tours are for those aged 18 years +

Spiffing Tastes

We wouldn’t be much of a brewery if we didn’t offer food pairings with our specially crafted brews. Look out for regular events on our social media or join our mailing list to get notified of our next dates. Generally, we hold 3 to 4 food pairing events a year.

For £39.95 a ticket you receive a 3-course meal & palette cleanser with 1/2 pint with each course in our historic upstairs restaurant. 7pm arrival to be seated by 7:30pm and is first come first served, often we provide live entertainment for the evening as well and with 110 guests it is quite the atmosphere!

Food Pairings

Holy Matrimony

There is nothing more we love than when two aortic pumps coming together and getting married at our beautiful historic barn in the heart of Southampton.

Our venue has a rustic and historic feel that decorating will be easy for you. High beam ceilings and an unhealthy amount of fairy lights will give you the romantic and grand setting you need.

We are Family

Birthday’s, anniversaries, family reunions and the like, we cater to it all. Of course family extends to dogs as well (where would we be without them?) Just give us a call or use our online booking form – we just need a few more details for larger groups.

The barn is an easy setting to decorate. Whilst we aren’t fond of helium balloons we do allow them but if they go up into our roof there will be a charge of £50 per balloon to get them down so it doesn’t set off our security alarm in the night. We don’t supply celebration cakes but we know those that can.

Discreet and sympathetic service

Remember and celebrate your loved one’s life. Our professional events are here to help during this difficult time. Let us ensure every aspect is taken care of with empathy. We offer a suitably dressed venue. Our team has many years of experience in organising funeral receptions and wakes, offering a comprehensive, discreet and sympathetic service to help take some of the strain away at such an emotional time.

We are located within a 20-minute drive of both Wessex Vale and Southampton crematoriums.

Need a gift to sort a rift?
