The taproom and visitors centre are open daily with brewery tours, live music and multi award winning ales.
Situated just half a mile from either Bournemouth Pier or Square the visitors centre has excellent reviews on the tours which run hourly 12 noon till 5pm. The tours starts in the brewery's own cinema and provides a guide to the history of beer, Southbourne Ales story, learning about the raw materials, followed by looking at the brewery plant and discovering how beer is made, culminating in a tutored tasting of some of the draught delights in the taproom.
This friendly brewery tap has a feel for the old times with plenty of chance for striking up a conversation or singing along to some great local acts at the weekends.
There is a relaxed yet raucous atmosphere and is great for adults of all ages, with a wide variety of drinks served, suitable to everyone.
