Incredible value

Where can you get a pint of real ale for #2.20? The Digby Tap is the place to go. Its a real old fashioned pub with no airs or graces. The lunch we had was well cooked, tasty and really inexpensive.

We were recommended this pub. On a cold windy day, we took sanctuary at lunch time, and ordered small meals.The price was minimal, and my goodness, the food superb. The following day, a friend came to spend the day with us, and again, off to the Digby Tap. This time we could not find a free table. By chance, a... More

We last went in here on a Sunday evening between Evensong at the Abbey church and an evening meal. As ever it was busy but we got a table. There is always a lively atmosphere here. No music and no fruit machines. A number of guest ales at incredibly good prices. Lunches are super value too. You can fill up... More

One of those rare gems - a genuine British pub, not a fake make-over or ponced-up gastropub; a real local watering hole, scrumming at the bar, lively atmosphere, "lucky to get a table" kind of place. Excellent honest quality food at a price which is truly remarkable. If you prefer reality to role play this is the gaff for you.... More

A 'no-frills' Pub serving good reasonably priced food and real ales. Unlike many Pubs these days, the Digby Tap does not claim to be a gastro-pub. It is a real local pub and is always busy. the staff are efficient and the service is good. Its 'No Mobile Phones' policy is a bonus as far as I am concerned.
