This is a popular place with plenty of return customers. We went on a Friday and they rock band was playing. They are very good and keeps the crowd going. There's plenty of space with cement tables and chairs in the open air area however it still isnt enough on weekends and come late it would be hard to grab... More

They need to employee more staff and give them a traning how to serve their customers... More

First time I went to this place, it was easy to chill out after a lot of walking in humidity it was nice to read for a while with aircon and some reasonably priced snacks and a nice cold beer. They left the door open a few times but it was OK. I was quite happy with the place so... More

we was there for a Saturday lunch so not much going on here. this is more of a pub for light foods but if you want a heavy meal there are plenty of other places in the Dutch Hospital Complex. During the day this is a decent place for a family and children but at night would avoid it. if... More

Being here like 5 times now and only 6 letters I can say about the experience Taphouse gave me.. L.O.V.E.I.T! I'm not much of a nightlife-party-till-its-down type character, but the pub, the live band, the atmosphere, the crowd and all the rest of it actually made me a fan of Taphouse :D This is a classic pub and even you...

The title said it all! Great place to chill with friends, three people can enjoy a nice, chilled pitcher of beer and still go for more. The bites they got is also really good. Tastes great and value for money, no doubt. They got musical evenings though I don't remember the day. Definitely worth visiting.

This review is for drinks only (food looked OK). This place deserves a 4-5 for decor/atmosphere and location. The renovation on the Dutch Hospital is terrific and will be very popular. Lots of restaurants and a few higher-end jewelry and craft shops. Taphouse has a good vibe (Fri evening there was good live music!), some outdoor seating, decent service. Drinks... More

I had to face a really bad experience on Taphouse by RnR recently. I went Taphouse with my colleges to celebrate a special day in my life. They offered a Carlsberg promotion that if we buy a Carlsberg tower we can get a free Carlsberg pitcher. We ordered tow promotion Carlsberg towers. They served us only one pitcher and they... More
