A converted brick warehouse. Main bar has a vaulted ceiling, red and white paint on bare brick and perhaps a little bit too much of an austere feel for me though there is plenty of breweriana as to be expected. There’s a function room to the rear and a conservatory out front (indeed, we gatecrashed a wedding reception that was being hosted at the venue). Six pumps with five on; Bass and 4x Heritage Brewing Company (formerly the William Worthington’s Brewery) - Masterpiece, Charrington Oatmeal Stout, Offilers Best Bitter and St Modwen Golden ale. We went for the Oatmeal Stout which was a great beer in great condition. It’s certainly worth popping in here if you’re in the vicinity for something a bit different, beer-wise. 7.5

Well described by the esteemed reviewers below. We were here for the CAMRA Champion Beer Of Britain lunch which matched 4 courses with the CBOB. Apart from all the free beer the wine and spirits were bought from the bar in here. The restaurant area looked very nice and if the quality of the food at the lunch is anything to go by, it will be pretty good. The bar itself felt a bit antiseptic to me, but the beer served at the lunch was all in good nick, so the cellarmanship is very good. It must be quite daunting to have to serve the Champion brewers of Britain their own beers!! We'll call in again next time we're in Burton.

In the 2013 GBG ,so got a lunchtime visit to see whats on offer.The bar room with bay windows and a wood floor is rather genteel but the place to drink while the glass panelled doors give access to the large restaurant with a gallery where you can sample dishes some made with beer,mains £9-£14,starters and deserts around £5.There is a Sunday carvery and there is occasional live music.Sadly the muzak was corporate and loud until the bar started to fill up.
My focus was on ale,so I stayed in the tap room and sampled the range of three Worthington cask ale brewed on site,all £3 which I thought reasonable.The Spring Shield was acceptable,the Red Shield good with a strong Burton sulphur nose ,while the White Shield was outstanding,a real classic with lots going on.Doom Bar is also served but with little enthusiasm from the tour guides ,while two guests are also available,Hook Norton Lion and Milton Cleopatra on my trip.
Coors keg beers also available and I spotted the USA craft Blue Moon just waiting for trainman.
Lots of breweriana on the walls,and the bar can get busy at the end of tours.However I would pop in again when next in Burton to sample the excellent Worthington range,shame it is rarely seen elsewhere.
