Robinsons visitor Centre tours




Brewery tours at the new Robinsons Visitors Centre are now running and available to book online at


From Tuesday to Sunday there will be daily tours taking place at the Brewery where our guides will take you through the brewing process.  You can learn how Robinsons selects the ingredients for its ales, discover the science and technology behind the brewing process and see how our new Hopnik works and what makes it so important in brewing award-winning beer.


The Visitors Centre and Brewery Tour also provides a fantastic corporate hospitality venue so if you’d like to enquire about a group booking you can do so online or by calling 0161 612 4100.




Whether you fancy a quick pint, a social or a working lunch, our café and bar area is the ideal port of call.  Our freshly prepared menu offers a range of classic English dishes with a modern twist, using the finest locally sourced produce.


What’s more, until the 17th April 2013 we’ll give you a free pint of ale* with your lunch.  Simply print out this e-newsletter and present it when you order your meal.


*Minimum spend of £5. One voucher per person. No photocopies accepted.  Subject to availability. Valid until Wednesday 17th April 2013.





The conference facilities at the new Robinsons Visitors Centre have already been put to great use by some of the UK’s leading brands.


Santander, Diageo and Jaguar have all recently held events in the Visitors Centre, benefitting from the central Stockport location, taking full advantage of our catering services and our fully licensed cask ale Unicorn bar.


Santander Corporate & Commercial Banking, said:


“We want to be personal in everything we do, and having a local presence with local businesses is key for us. Robinson’s is a local family business, who are celebrating their 175th anniversary this year – an iconic institution here in Stockport – so we chose the new Robinson’s Visitor Centre as the venue for our recent Professionals / Customers event.

The facilities are excellent and everyone was extremely impressed with the on-site catering and, of course, the famous Robinson ales.”




Throughout the year Robinsons will be hosting a variety of events such as food and beer matching courses and cookery nights with celebrity chef Simon Rimmer.


These are open to the public to enjoy, but we also welcome group bookings from businesses looking for corporate hospitality opportunities.
