Will Larter left this review about Unsworth's Yard Brewery

This brewery is part of a group of buildings which have been put to new uses: there's also a bakery, a cheese shop and a wine seller. The yard itself has been fashioned into a very pleasant garden, with seats, tables and stone benches. Inside, there is the brewery and a small shop where gift packs or individual bottles can be bought. The shop counter also doubles as a bar - possibly the smallest I have ever seen, with three hand pumps. The brewery produces a number of beers in fairly standard styles - nothing outlandish but all eminently drinkable. All beers, whether draught, or poured from a bottle, or carried away, are priced at £3.00 a pint (or per 50cl bottle). I was here one morning in July, when I had one of the earliest beers I have ever drunk, on my way to the railway station at Cark. The owner/brewer/barman was friendly, welcoming and informative. On a later visit, on Bank Holiday Monday in August for the local race meeting, there was quite a crowd here but everyone behaved in a civilised manner and there was none of the rip-off price increases that are seen in the other village pubs at such times. I saw people buying wine from one shop, bread and cheese from another, and beer from the brewery, and making impromptu picnics in the yard. Marvellous!
