The Factory Tap is the tap house of Bowness Bay Brewing. It’s the place you’ll find the most rewarding new hand-crafted beers around. It’s the place you’ll find friends, old and new. It’s the place to relax and be refreshed. No slots, no music, no gimmicks – just genuine hospitality, dog friendly and very, very real beer. Oh, and a selection of quality wines, care of the legendary Frank Stainton. Locally famous landlord, Les Brown, looks forward to welcoming you. See you soon.
