THE BEER

It's All About The Beer

At The Taproom we have a saying, "Its all about the beer", we admit that it is a simple saying, but we live and breathe (or drink) it.

With no affiliation or ties to any breweries, we are free to search not only the country, but the world, to bring you the best beers and ciders possible. This is our purpose! Featuring 8 gravity lines, 7 keg lines and multiple bottled beers, we are sure we have something for everyone, and if we don't you can be sure we will find it. Ask our advice or have a taste and together we'll find what your after.

At The Taproom we are fully aware that just because the beer has left the brewery and arrived on our doorstep the job is far from complete. Cask ale is a living product that requires cellaring skills. We nurture wherever possible high levels of natural carbonation, serving each beer in a manner and at a temperature that enhances its aroma and flavour profile and creates an appropriate mouthfeel. This is what we do day in day out.

It's All About The Beer Garden

We have a comfortable decked garden for all you outdoors ale drinkers. With three festival benches and three barrel bar tables, there is room for many ale-fresco imbibers. When the weather is not so clement you can warm yourself with an outdoor heater or two.

Hoppy Hour and Happy Sundays

If your after a cheaper pint of cask ale, then we've got you covered. Monday to Thursday, 4 - 6pm all cask ale is £3.40 a pint. Whereas on Sundays, you can get at that price all day long.

FAQ's

Why are some beers becoming so costly?

Unlike the large corporation beers you will find in your run-of-the-mill establishments, we choose the best. Beers that are often brewed in small batches with the finest of ingredients by the people whom (not literally) put their blood sweat and tears into each and every batch they produce, not to mention the hop flower, perhaps never more in demand by artisanal brewers than it is today, this is a big reason why. Then we have beers from the Americas and the far north of the Uk, the best ingredients, distribution and shipping costs, high ABV's and duty costs, and although we will always try our utmost to keep prices down, supply and demand will often bump them up.

Do you only stock beer?

No, we have a large range of Cider, Wine, Whiskey, Spirits Cocktails and soft drinks, only the best will do!

How about Food?

Our pizzas are made fresh everyday with the finest and fresh ingredients.

Can you take away beer?

Of course, we have one or two pint ale and cider hoppers for you to take away and enjoy.

Where can I find what beers you have on?

We will constantly advertise new additions on twitter. We update our draught menus daily, which we keep on the bar.
