Tap house is something different to a pub. No canned music, no fruit machines etc. Friendly atmosphere where you can sit chat and be heard., Good range of drinks options and regularly changing beers. No parking. Small so can be difficult to get a seat....More

Popular this afternoon though we felt the beers were not worth the outlay. We do drink craft beer so are used to the prices but the quality, we felt was a little lacklustre. And £2 for a small bowl of nuts is crazy.

From the wonderful range of drinks, to the quirky furniture, its a true hidden oasis. There are games provided,( which meant we stayed for 3 drinks, not just 1), great knowledgable staff, and just an all round enjoyable place to be!
