Now in our 9th year we feel we can truly say we have a dedicated following... people who are, like us, passionate about their real ale and wouldn't miss Datchet Beer Festival for anything!
However, if you find yourself on our site for the first time... a very warm welcome to you!
Below are a series of questions and answers that we have fielded over the last 8 years and you may find useful ahead of joining us at the Datchet Beer Festival for the first time.
1. Can I buy tickets on the door?
There may be tickets available on the door for the Connoisseur's Afternoon (1pm-5pm) but Thirsty Friday and The Beerlover's Evening will almost certainly be sold out and only advance purchase of tickets via this website is advised.
2. Can I pay by debit or credit card during any session of the Datchet Beer Festival?
No (sorry!), so please ensure you arrive with plenty of cash (we like the folding stuff) for your purchases - the nearest cash-point to the Festival is approx 10mins walk.
3. Is the Festival wheelchair accessible?
Yes, the site is all on one level and we have a ramp to make the hall accessible to wheelchairs and mobility scooters. We also have disabled toilet facilities.
4. What food is available to purchase at the Festival?
For 2018, our NEW food options are under wraps! What we can tell you is that all options that will be availble will be from local producers using local ingredients and will be gourmet quality. As usual an array of complimentary snacks will adorn the tables - we know how much you all like the taste of a free snack! (but once they're gone, they're gone!).
5. Are children allowed at the Festival?
Well-behaved children are welcome at the Connoisseurs Afternoon session when accompanied by the ticket holding adult(s), however children are NOT permitted to attend any of the Evening sessions.
6. Is the Festival easily accessible by public transport?
Our venue is a mere 10 minutes easy walk from Datchet train station from which trains run directly to Windsor & Eton Riverside and and also into London Waterloo via, Wraysbury, Staines, Richmond, Clapham Junction and Vauxhall (station stops vary dependent on train service selected).
We are located at:
Datchet Village Hall,
3 Allen Way,
