Garden City Brewery has been brewing in a small 2 1/2 barrel brewery in Letchworth Garden City since 2016.
They typically brew twice a week and serve all their real ale – alongside ever-changing guest beers – direct from the cask from Wed-Sun.
The Brewpub has won numerous awards and has gained a reputation for great beer, friendly service and a relaxed yet vibrant atmosphere. It also boasts a brilliant selection of drinks and snacks and hosts regular sell-out Comedy Nights, Live Music Nights and Pub Quizzes.
