The tour is an interesting experience with some nice hands on 'touchy-feely' aspects that helps bring the brewing theory relevant. Guide was friendly with a good rapport. Beer and rum tasting was good for none drivers. A bottle of beer for drivers would be a...More

Had a guided tour by Christine who was very good, friendly and informative. You also get three halves at the end of the tour in the on site bar so all in all well worth the money.

The lady leading the tour, also manned the front desk and shop. She was brilliant. The selection of malt grains tasted nice. The guide described the chocolate malt flavor as ‘burnt toast’. Spot on. The beer samples were great as was the Port. Great T-shirts....More

We visited with a mixed age group (18, 30’s, 50’s and 60’s) and had a brilliant time. The tour was informative and the guide was happy to answer any questions throughout. It was nice to see a traditional brewery without heavy mechanisation. The tasting afterwards...More

I think that Jennings brewery has an age limit of twelve years for the tours, but why not phone and ask them. They may have another solution.

You are welcome to bring a dog into the shop - but they can't go onto the tour due to health and safety. Many thanks
