Super own-brewed beers in a former Victorian grain store, cheerful customers and pubby food

You can book online for a tour of the rather special brewery in its converted railway grain warehouse (though not on Friday or Saturday evenings). Following the traditional tower system of production, the beer is brewed on the upper floors of the building directly above the down-to-earth bar; during working hours, you'll hear the busy noises of the brewery rumbling overhead. The ten own-brews are served traditionally on handpump at the left end of the bar counter and through swan necks with sparklers on the right: Cooking, Rutland Osprey, Rutland Panther, Ten Fifty, Triple B and a seasonal ale plus beer takeaways, and they hold a beer festival (with over 80 real ales and live music) on the August Bank Holiday weekend. There's also a farm cider, several wines by the glass and 15 malt whiskies. Décor is plain and functional, with well worn wide floorboards, bare ceiling boards above massive joists supported by red metal pillars, a long brick-built bar counter with cast-iron stools, tall cask tables and simple elm chairs; games machine, darts, board games, giant Jenga and bottle-walking. In summer, the huge glass doors are pulled back, opening on to a terrace furnished with picnic-sets. Disabled access.
