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.
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.

Kieran Boyd - Crashing the Party
Kieran spent his 20's living fast and doing sketch comedy with WitTank "Masterful" (Sunday Times). A stand up show about a never-ending party and what happens when it, erm, ends.
"Brilliant, fresh and funny... Exquisite" (Kate Copstick).
"Impressively funny... Terrific material" (Scotsman).
"The kind of acute social observations that would grace any mainstream stand-up showcase' (Chortle.co.uk).
Naz Osmanoglu is Detective Lars Johansson
Naz Osmanoglu as Detective Lars Johansson. Every case in Sweden is a cold case. Stand-up/sketch tycoon, Naz Osmanoglu, does true-crime Nordic noir (at last). Detective Lars Johansson revisits the case he never solved: brutal murders, far-fetched twists, red herrings, actual herring, and of course, overwhelmingly polite and reasonable law enforcement officers.
As seen on BBC Two's Inside No. 9, ITV2's The Stand-up Sketch Show, Channel 4's Back and Comedy Central's Roast Battle.
