Fabulous bottle shop. Didnít take the tour, but could smell the lovely malt. Outstanding selection of Devon, Cornwall and Somerset beers. Nearly all vintages of JW Lees Harvest Ale, for £3.99 a bottle! Great value all round. Well worth a detour.

Visited this place on a rainy miserable Saturday morning, coincidentally the derby day at newton Abbot so the town itself was abuzz. Did the tour, well worth it, seeing through the ins and outs of this old traditional malthouse, the only still operational in the West Country. Got to sample a few ales at the end in the staff bar via five handpumps. The shop itself is crammed with all manner of bottled goodies, boxed sets and glassware. The staff were great, quick to point out the best vintages, and the top notch bottled ales. A fair selection of foreign offerings in there too, but they fade into the background when it comes to the West Country ales available, most brewed using the Tuckers floor dried and kilned malts. Apparently lay host to great beer festivals too. The place is also child friendly. Well worth a visit, really impressed!

Visited during the Tuckerís Maltings Beer Festival 23/04/10. Excellent selection of west country beers, particularly from Devon and Cornwall. Whilst itís true that a large proportion are behind the serving counter, the staff were friendly and quite happy to talk through the ones out of immediate reach. The festival itself was top notch, with over 200 hundred beers from small brewers from the Isles of Scilly to Bristol on offer. The complex also houses the Maltings working museum and Teignworthy brewery. Excellent.

Excellent find in an otherwise uncelebrated Devon town. A great selection of bottled English beers and a reasonable selection of imports as well. The full range of Thatchers ciders are also available. The old chap who always seems to be there is very helpful and there is a full catalog with tasting notes in case the staff member doesnít know the beer you may happen to ask about. The biggest criticism I have of the place is that the trading hours are prohibitive to anyone who actually works a normal week and doesnít happen to live in Newton Abbot!

Very good (and growing) selection, especially of local ales but also of US/Belgian beers and styles that can be hard to find in the UK. Bare wood decor with the smell and feel of the maltings behind give the place a real ambience. The chap serving was very friendly and seemed knowledgeable about his stock. Prices seem slightly cheaper than other specialist beer shops Iíve visited, plus you get a 5% discount when ordering a dozen bottles. However, no discount for CAMRA members which some other shops do offer. As others have stated, it is very annoying that many of the beers are behind the counter, plus I did notice that one or two of the beers I bought were getting quite close to their best before date - is stock rotation/ turnover an issue here? Nevertheless, I would definitely visit again if I was passing this way.

This is a really decent shop that also has a mail order online option. Not the huge choice of some other shops or online places but there is a nice focus on local south west beers and a good stab at some Belgian and US beers amongst their foreign list. One nice touch with the online ordering is that they send out a local CAMRA publication with the order which puts a smile on my face. There is very good parking situated right by this store, alos closeish to the railways sttion.

A great beer store with a large selection of English beers with a very friendly staff. The focus here is many beers from the UK but there is a nice selection of American beers as well.
