There are two BBF sites here, the brewery and Mark’s Cafe on Durnford Street, and the Tobacco Factory theatre and bar just up the street on the junction of North Street and Raleigh Road. The Tobacco Factory is the larger and sells pretty much the full range of BBF on tap and in bottles. It holds Factoberfest in its backyard, a festival that offers an excellent range of well chosen beers, including one-off BBF specials. Mark’s Cafe is at the front of the brewery and is run by the bakery next door. Drink wise it offers BBF and Severn Cider in bottles, plus and excellent range of lunches and cakes - pizza day on Thursday is particularly good.

Visited during Factoberfest, great brewery with some outstanding beers, Independence being one of my favourites, just wish I had more time as there were a lot more beers I wanted to taste. The food I tasted was very good, and again this brewery/pub is on a busy road. I will be back!!
