While not a pub the brewery tours are very good and the sampling in the íHock Cellarí after are always good. Fullers beers are very good and now they also brew the íGalesí beers so have a very varied product íportfolioí.
Went in 2007. Just happened to go past on a bus, got off, was told I could join the tour for 6 pounds. Had some crisps and a Bitter in the nice pub, typical brewery tour was made very humorous and interesting by the guide, who kept telling tales about how much the workers used to drink in the days when they could have all they wanted for free. The tasting at the end was phenomenal, with 5 or so beers on the hand pump, plus Vintage ale and 1845 in bottles, and all you could drink for more than enough time. Good time.
Visited this past Sept while on a birthday/golf tour of England. They graciously added me and my brother to the brewery tour at the last minute after a little begging (and shameless mention of my birthday). The tour was quite nice and the product is top notch. Ample conversation and tasting in the cellar afterwards. Iím a Fullerís fan for life!
Visited only the unusual brewery shop, which offers far more wine (!) than beer - but nevertheless the Vintage Ales from 05 to 08 plus a limited range of Fullersí and Galeís Ales (Old Prize Ale!) were available; some glassware, too. Worth a detour, but not a must...........
