I recently went here for a retirement party. It has been renovated since I was here last. We were in the back room. It was huge with a bar. A perfect size for a party/group reservation. There were platters of food served: veggie trays, hot...More

Was here for a lunch date. Decent food, service a little slow. Drinks not bad. Ice machine wasn't working. Easily accessible, ample parking. Would probably repeat.

We did a pub patio tour on a beautiful day. One would be hard pressed to even know the Tap had one due to it's back location. Even on a beautiful day you will not get much direct sunlight, due to the enclosure around it....More

Went her for Lunch and had Buffalo Chicken Fingers. The salad was fresh and the service was fast. Would return again

Not your average pub...we do it a little different at The Tap! We are not only known for our award winning night scene, but we are quickly gaining a reputation for food excellence. With our fresh first approach and our creative recipes we have put a unique spin on typical pub cuisine. Add in a few of our chef's own specialty dishes and there is a little something for every palate. To complement our delectable menu we offer the most expansive selection of draught in Durham Region. We have over 37 different beers on tap and are a proud supporter of local craft breweries! If beer is not for you we also offer a vast selection of delicious wines to pair with any meal. We pride ourselves on offering the best atmosphere in town, where everyone is welcome and treated like family. Our recent extensive renovations offer a traditional pub atmosphere with a modern twist and a 66 seat patio that is dressed to impress for the summer months. We are also able to accommodate large groups for private events or parties. Whether your group is 2 or 72 we want to make you feel at home. Satisfaction is our number one goal. Located in the heart of downtown Whitby our staff would be delighted for you to join us for lunch, dinner, drinks or a night of dancing. With our menus rotating seasonally, live music 4 nights a week and many special events the Tap and Tankard is truly a place for everyone. You owe it to yourself to enjoy the experience. Look for our new features on Twitter or Facebook.
