About the Donnington Brewery in the heart of the Cotswolds

Thomas Arkell bought a 13th-century watermill in idyllic countryside in 1827 and Richard Arkell began brewing on the site in 1865.

Today, the mill wheel is still used to drive pumps and machinery to brew our beer the same way 150 years on.
You can enjoy our beer, food, accommodation and Cotswold hospitality at any of our 18 tied houses and a number of free trade outlets.

Donnington Brewery has 18 beautiful Cotswold pubs and also supplies a number of free houses close by.
A Donnington Brewery pub is easily identified by the distinctive black and white signs outside, introduced by Claude Arkell, and the tradition is continued by James.

Our Beers

Donnington still produces its beers by much the same recipe that has always been used. Spring water (or in brewing terms ‘liquor’) is drawn from the spring beside the mill pond and used as the main ingredient along with barley, malt and hops.

Until the mid 1960s, the barley was grown on the local estate but today it’s brought as malt from Norfolk. The hops are from Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

The original mill is still used in the brewing process and the mill wheel drives some of the machinery used by the brewery.

One Fifty Celebratory Ale abv 4.2%
150 will be available exactly 150 years on from Founders Ale which was brewed on the 27th May 1865.

Wakatu and First Gold hops have been added to both the Copper and the Hop Back. The Wakatu brings both floral and vanilla taste. This blended with First Gold produces a well-balanced bitterness and a fruity, slightly spicy note. Premium Maris Otter Barley along with some Wheat Malt and Crystal Malt gives the sweet rounded, malty character. The honey has been sourced from The Overbury Estate. Added to the Under Back this gives a unique flavour to a perfectly balanced ale.

B.B. abv 3.6%
A pleasant amber bitter with a slight hop aroma, a good balance of malt and hops in the mouth and a bitter aftertaste.

S.B.A. abv 4.4%
Malt dominates over bitterness in the subtle flavour of this premium bitter, which has a hint of fruit and a dry, malty finish.

Donnington Gold abv 4.0%
Our latest permanent, award-winning beer has a golden colour with a citrus flavor followed by a rounded malt finish.

Double Donn abv 4.4%
Nutty aroma with toffee and a trace of orange fruit. Sweetish, chewy, cereal malt flavour with an earthy edge and decent bitter finish.
