What a fantastic expedition. 100R buys you 5 gin tastes, complete with fruit and tonic to play. Come and chill!

The free beer and cider tasting was the clinch on deciding to eat here and we were not disappointed. We particularly enjoyed the ciders and later discovered the non alcohol versions were just as tasty. Highly recommended.

Stopped by Clarens Brewery for their famous beer and cider. The service was good, although are waitress did not, at first, inform us of the tasting option. The red ale was good so to the pineapple cider. Money well spent.

We popped in for the fabulous beer tasting which is free to taste their craft beer and ciders. We bought a pint or two and they were lovely. The decor is just right and the staff are super friendly and helpful. I will be back.
