Marrfish was born from a long-standing and rich fishing heritage, going back nearly 150 years. The Marr family were pioneers of the trawling industry in the late 1800s, adopting new technologies and practices across the fishing industry, making conditions better and improving the quality of caught fish by trial freezing at sea.
Fast forward 142 years and Marrfish was born. Drawing upon this knowledge, and the access of the UK’s top fishing waters, the Marr family have been supplying fresh, sustainable, high-quality fish to the UK’s top restaurants and hotels since 2011, including the White Horse!
NVB established their site at Oundle Wharf in September 2012, with a brand new 2500L brewery from Canada. This allowed them to open their Brewery Shop and start supplying the local area with take-away packaged beer, also attracting a small following of Friday night after work drinkers.
Founded back in 1993, Oakham Ales were amongst the first to pioneer the use of hops from the USA. In 2010 they were the first UK brewery to brew a beer with 100% Citra® hops, and not only is Oakham Citra® one of their top sellers, it’s also an acknowledged UK brewing trailblazer. JHB voted as ‘Supreme Champion Beer of Great Britain’ in 2001 is one of the pub’s best sellers.
Founded in 1994, Gainstore Brewery was a collaboration of two friends, Tony Davis formally Head Brewer & Production Director at Ruddles Brewery, and Mike Davies.
