When is the Tap Room open?
The bar opens on 30th April. Our opening hours are

We also offer wood-fired pizzas on these days. We will serve pizzas from 2pm on Friday, 1pm on Saturday and 12pm on Sunday. Last orders for pizzas are 1 hour before closing.
We will be running a table-service to 7 outside booths. You will need to pre-book a booth via our booking system. So everyone has a chance of coming along, we are asking that you book up to a maximum of 2 hours at a time. If you do book more than 2 hours, one of the team will be in touch to rearrange. If you have a Tap Room booking then you will be able to pre-book a pizza. Your booking confirmation will include instructions as to how to order. Please note pre-orders need to be in 48hours prior to arrival at the Tap Room.
The Shop is also open during these hours – we just ask that you head to the check in area outside where one of the team will serve you. Please do not enter the shop as the bar will be busy and we have social distancing measures in place.
You can also pick up ‘Collect at Brewery’ orders too.
Can I just turn up or do I have to book?
We have a booking system in place to ensure everyone’s safety. Please head to our booking page to see availability.

The new track and trace regulations require all members of the party to provide their contact details. If you can email them to us prior to your visit, we would be very grateful.
Is your seating socially distanced?
We have created 7 outdoor booths that are each 2 metres apart. Each booth can seat 4 people.
To allow bigger groups to meet up several different households, we will try to make sure we arrange the booths to be next to one another. Just let us know in the notes section at time of booking. Please do not book on behalf of another household. We need contact details for each group as part of the track and trace rules.
Can children come?
Children are welcome at the Tap Room until 6pm. We do have limited space and have to ensure social distancing measures for all our customers so please can your children remain seated in the booth with a responsible adult during your visit.
Can I bring my dog
Dogs are welcome at the Tap Room however while space is limited we just ask that you keep dogs on a lead please.
What payment methods are you accepting?
We will be operating contactless payment, so at the moment we will not be accepting cash, just card or methods such as ApplyPay.
Is your seating covered?
With the current guidance we currently can only offer outdoor booths. 2 booths will benefit from our fire pit and the other 5 booths will be in our covered beer garden. We can’t supply blankets or cushions – so please come prepared!
What other measures are in place to ensure my safety?
We have put in place several changes to ensure we meet with current guidelines.
- There is a one-way system in place so please wait to be seated by a member of the Windswept team.
- It will be table service only. Please do not order drinks at the bar
- The toilet will be open and a member of the team will explain the queuing system. It will be cleaned after each use. Please be patient.
- All the tables and chairs will be cleaned after each party departs before a new party arrives.
- We will have anti-bacterial hand gel available at the toilet.
Why are you charging a deposit?
With the new guidelines, we require 2 members of staff and so to make our opening viable we need to ensure our booths are fully booked during opening. By charging this deposit, we hope that ensures that everyone turns up for their booking. We always like feedback so just let us know what you think and we will review it after a few weeks.
Will my deposit be refunded?
Your total deposit for your visit to the tap room will be converted to a credit which will be added to your tab on the day and deducted from your drinks order.
Can I cancel my booking?
We need 48 hours notice if you wish to cancel your booking. Please call 01343 814310 or email email@example.com to cancel. Please do not use our social media channels to cancel. A refund can take up to 10 days to go back on to your card.
What will you be serving?
We can have up to 10 different beers available – the Windswept team on the day will let you know what we have on tap. We will also have our usual selection of soft drinks, gin, cider, whisky, wine and exciting cocktails. Hot drinks will also be available.
We have our wood-fired pizzas on offer (vegetarian and vegan options available) as well as bar snacks and cakes.
Will I have fun?
We really hope so! We want our customers to be happy customers. Please let our team know If you have concerns, queries or feedback.
