What beers they have! Okay so maybe these were an excuse to stay but bonus, Michael (he who runs & organises this very fine establishment) and Fabio (best front of house service, think Fred Sirieix & you’re there) are outstanding. Which is ideal as the brewery/hotel is just that, outstanding. I mean, a brewery/hotel! Combos don’t come better than that. Clean, accommodating, relaxing with beautiful beers, and with food & ambience to match. Just need another excuse to go back….oh and they have a log fire. Bliss. 5 stars.
