Visited on Saturday 3rd Jan 2015 (check the website before going, as the times are very restrictive). Basic room with the brewery in the half of the building you can not get into. Offered a glass of beer as I perused the bottles on offer to take away. 13 different beers to choose from plus a cider. Clean, bright and tidy little shop/tasting room. I had a good chat with a local, regular buyer and the brewer/front man as I supped my half-pint of Scarlet Tiger, which was the free, cask offering of the day. Bought 12 different bottles and really pleased I made the effort to find the place while in the area.

Visited here in October and forgot to leave a rating. Getting to this place is not easy. It is quite literally in the middle of nowhere but in a very beautiful part of the country, surrounded by fields. Also be aware that sat navs do not work to get here and will take you somewhere about 2 miles away. The brewery is kind of on a farm. You arrive and winder if it is really there as it’s in a small building which is part of the farm. Inside is a warm welcome from Alan, the brewer. There’s a shop front with all the beers and behind that is all the brewing equipment. He’ll also oblige you with a taster. Great little place and makes the beer even more special when you have to hunt it down out here. There’s also a pub at the end of the road that serves cask versions!

Excellent micro brewery where you can buy King Henry’s Special Reserve amongst other Old Chimneys’ treats. Was greated by a very warm and friendly brewer upon arrival whom instantly asked if I wanted a taster. I said yes and a full glass was thrusted upon my very hands in very quick time. The show is a one man team. The hours are limited (please check before you leave) and it’s out of the way but it is really worth making the effort to get to. A scenic brewery in a typical East Anglian farmyard. The shop value is excellent. KHSR is £3.70 of time of writing and a lot of bitters and other ales are very reasonably priced. You get a 10% case discount which is only 12 bottles. You can buy as many as you want. There are bottles on display but the brewer keeps most of the botles inside a nice cool cupboard so conditioning is ideal. Lovely place; friendly staff and a must visit. Of note there are no other bottles other than Old Chimnays. There is brewery cider and oilve oil is also available too.
