Brewery Visitor Centre on the Marston's Brewery site, recently (2016) subject to a major refurbishment.
The main open plan room is broken up by a mixture of brick and wood pillars and, not surprisingly, features lots of brewery memorabilia and framed adverts, pictures and photographs, plus a WW1 'Roll of Honour' and a small shop. It also incorporates a smart new 2½-barrel operational ‘nano-brewery’ behind a low wall. The latter incorporates two fermenters, thereby allowing up to two brews per week.
The Centre provides a base for (pre-booked) guided tours of the main brewery @ £8.50/adult (includes 3 half-pints of beer) and £5.00 for under 18s (minimum age 12; includes soft drinks).
A meeting room is located off to one side. The main bar and/or the meeting room can be booked for private functions.
There is a separate brewery shop fronting onto Shobnall Road (opening times 11am – 5pm Tuesday & Wednesday, 10am – 6pm Thursday & Friday, 10am – 5pm Saturday).
