Tarka Ale Micro-Brewery

A unique brew, right on our doorstep!

One of our old farm buildings has found a new lease of life as the home of a modern small-scale microbrewery.

Crafted in small batches, the unique Tarka Ale is a characterful brew mastered by experienced brewer Lawrence, who also offers tours of the brewery to our guests. To arrange a visit, just speak to Peter when you are staying with us and we can sort out a tasting session as part of your holiday at Orchard Lodges.


“Loved meeting Lawrence in the micro brewery who made our last day so memorable with his fish chips and Ale and his fantastic sense of humour … Such a lovely man!”


Special Offer! 

Lawrence is pleased to offer a FREE Pint of his handcrafted ales to each of our guests that stay at Orchard Lodges.

Feeling peckish? You can’t beat a good portion of Fish & Chips when you’re on holiday, so Lawrence is now serving this classic Great British dish at the Brewery.
