Our brewery is now 155 years young and we are sure will still be around in another 155 years. It was constructed using stone excavated from the land when Isambard Kingdom Brunel built the railway line next to our site. You just don’t build breweries this way anymore and ours has a unique heritage, history and story.

It is appropriate that in our 25th anniversary year we celebrate all that has gone before by bringing our brands up to date and brew new ales to help ensure this story continues.

The business is now owned and run by people who have spent their lives working in the drinks sector either running a brewery and helping to create a brand ‘Old Speckled Hen' or building a thriving pub business. We are passionate about ale and believe it is worth preserving with this best achieved by broadening its consumer franchise and maintaining its artisan heritage.

The story of this adventure is told within this website and we look forward to welcoming new visitors and drinkers.
