"A shining example to the trade!"
We duly found The Great Western Arms and what a find it was! From the moment we walked through the door we were made to feel welcome by both the staff and the locals. The food and drink were both excellent and good value for money. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff and they were all extremely friendly. Never before have we seen a landlady join every table in the room, not just to ask if everything was ok, but to spend time chatting as if we were long standing friends!
Hi, from Sydney Australia!
Just a short message to say how great it is to be able to purchase a selection of your superb beers in Dan Murphy's liquor outlet, "downunda"! As an ex-pat Brit, it is fantastic to be able to buy your quality handcrafted beer. We do have some great Ozzie handcrafted beers as well, but yours have the edge! Now if you would only export your stout... Cheers Mick
Thanks from the Pontypool Retired Men's Society
Just a brief note to say thank you so very much, after our recent visit. Your whole team were so kind and so very informative to the whole group, and our visit will be talked about for years to come.
We have found out the ''Hooky'' is a guest beer at a local pub, (don't think that it will last very long) so it means that we will have to change pubs for a while.
"A Perfect Example"
10 days ago my wife and I…decided to stop at the Peyton Arms. We were immediately welcomed into what Mick described as his 'front room' as friends and made to feel at home. Fresh rolls with a slab of 'real' cheese (not soap flakes), homemade chutney and not a piece of chewed up lettuce in sight. The Hook Norton Bitter was spot on and with good company we stayed a lot longer than originally intended…A perfect example of the type of pub which is so rare nowadays, one that is a great credit to Hook Norton.
Just a quick note re North Newington fete, to say thanks for your company’s help this weekend. It went very well and already I have heard of a number of people who will be attending one of your meal evenings each month. The gentleman who came along did a great job and is a credit to Hook Norton Brewery.Thanks again.
I have just had a party at the weekend and for this party I came to your brewery and purchased two polypins, one of Old Hooky and one of Hooky Gold. This proved to be very popular and to my amazement both were finished on the night. What wonderful beer in the polypins, I am now a convert to real ale. Once again thanks
We called in recently at the Peyton Arms at Stoke Lyne. We'd never been there before and found it in the Good Beer Guide…This pub is amazing. The ale was amazing (Old Hooky). The landlord Mick was great - so friendly and welcoming. The beer is the best we've tasted in a while…It's a pity we could only stay for a short while but we will definitely be returning.
Thank you very much for the fascinating tour and delicious tasting last night. Malcolm was an excellent guide and our guests (from Poland, Germany, Czech Republic, Turkey and Japan) managed to understand everything he said. This was the first time that we have experienced the Hook Norton Brewery tour, it really was a perfect evening and we will be back soon!
"From Russia with Love!"
I've tested occasionally today 2 bottles of Haymaker Beer, made by you in UK, and I would like express my "thanks a lot to you". The test of your beer is phantastic really! Never tested before such aromatic pale ale. Respect to your brewery! You must be proud about product, you do! Thanks a lot and best regards from Moscow!
"Great Tour, Great Pub!"
Back in August myself & my wife, visited your Brewery & had a wonderful Tour. The guide was so helpful and made the tour so interesting & the tasting of your excellent beers rounded the tour off so well. But yesterday we visited the Peyton Arms at Stoke Lyne & in all my life I have never visited such a wonderful pub. It was like going back in time. The landlord Mick is something else making us so welcome & and all the regulars doing the same. The beer straight from the barrel was the best i have ever tasted
"In time for Christmas?"
I'd just like to let you know that the beer you sent out yesterday has today arrived in Taunton. I just wanted to pass on my thanks to you, I really appreciate your efforts to get my purchase to me on time, in difficult circumstances and at cost to your self as a result of the trouble with Royal Mail. You exemplified wonderful customer service!
I will definitely order from you guys again! Merry Christmas, Joe
"A Great Time!"
My wife and I toured your brewery...and enjoyed ourselves so much we felt we should write to thank the Hook Norton team for the great experience we had. Our intended tour guide didn't show up so Jim took over at short notice. What a star! His personality and knowledge of the brewing process really made our visit a thoroughly enjoyable one. It was nice to be able to see the brewing process in full flow. We have toured other breweries but have never seen the brewing process active so this was a real treat.
Just a quick note to thank you all at your visitor centre for an enjoyable visit recently.My husband is a big fan of hooky beers. On our way home we visited The Star in Sulgrave and had a wonderful dinner,the food was just fantastic,the beer great and a lovely atmosphere in a pub with great character.
Many thanks Carol, you have looked after me so well. I must say that we had such a lovely time at our visit, everyone was so very friendly, and now your support for my internet order, I can honestly say it has been an absolute delight to have had dealings with your company.
