Welcome to The Taproom in the heart of Islington.

The Taproom came on the scene as a temporary licenced premises back in 2012 serving just cask ale. We opened for 6 weeks at the current premises. Our aim was to bring quality cask ale from around London and the UK to the people of Islington. The project was a instant success, so in 2013 we decided to make it permanent.

The Stillage

We decided early on that we would like to keep the casks on display but this is easier said than done when conditioning and temperature are taken into account. After many months of design we came up with a draft plan and found a company that could build it for us. The outcome is what you see today, a temperature controlled stillage, gravity dispensing cask ale in perfect condition every time. There is less than half a pint of beer in the line between the cask and the glass.

Sarah Keyworth

Sarah debuts with a story of her life an important little girl and her battle against every expectation of what it means to be a girl. Think Girls Just Wanna Have Fun but British, deadpan and in no way similar. Tour support for Dane Baptiste, Stewart Francis and Kerry Godliman. Funny Women runner-up.

Faye Treacy

Debut hour (Best Newcomer Musical Comedy Awards 2015; runner-up Bath New Act 2016; as heard on BBC Radio 2/4 Extra). When asked by her little sister for some career advice, Faye realised she'd spent the last half of her 20s trying to make trombone comedy work. Join Faye for an idiosyncratic tale about a South London foster family, why she's decided she wants to become a step-dad and what it's like to be quite often the only woman in the band. 'Treacy's charm soon wins us round... her one-liners are expertly crafted and sharp' (List).
