Creatures Nextdoor is the slightly more swish cousin of Little Creatures. It’s quite literally next door to the vast brewery, but rather than the rowdy crowds chugging down beers, you’ll enjoy more of a wine bar feel. With views of the water, this is one of the nicest places for a drink to soak up the late afternoon sunshine. Whilst Nextdoor can be just as busy as the main brewery area at times, it manages to retain a pleasantly cosy feel despite the large space. The seating arrangements feature colourful, mismatched chairs that make you sit back and forget the world’s worries.

If you’d like some fresh air then step out onto the balcony, adorned with fairy lights, and enjoy watching the stars come out. Serving up Creatures’ beer and cider on tap, there are also plenty of other liquid choices on the menu to satisfy, and they serve up some small snacks should you fancy some food. If you’re up for a fling around the dance floor later on, the adjoining room enjoys DJs spinning dance tunes to take you into the early hours of the morning, at other times you might enjoy live jazz, a comedy show or theatre piece.
