Opened on 4th July 2020, The Milking Parlour is the Tollgate Brewery Tap, inside the rustic interior of an old dairy shed, overlooking the brewery itself and set within the stunning surrounds of the National Trusts Calke Abbey estate.
There is ample outside drinking space overlooking fields and the historic outbuildings of the old Southwood House dairy farm.
