Fodor's Expert Review The Free House

Nelson Family

Sorry, the ale isn't actually free here—the name means that this place isn't tied to any particular brewery, so you can try a range of craft beers from this very crafty beer region. Light meals are served from a food caravan, or you can bring your own food along (the one rule is no global-branded fast food). Eat with the locals in the garden—plates and blankets are provided. Oh, and it's in a former church, which adds another touch of uniqueness.
