The food is always fantastic and the prices are more than fair. Situated downtown, this place is always hopping with locals and tourists alike. The only thing I would change is... having a kid friendly side or something so we could enjoy more often! Because it is a Pub we can't bring the kids in there :(

We are so thankful for your kind review. We too would like to offer a kid friendly pub experience but our liquor license does not allow minors in the pub. This one is for grown ups only - which can be a good thing when parents need a night out. Hope to see you again soon.

Stopped into Golden for lunch and found this pub while wandering the old downtown area. I had the veggie burger and a dark ale (cant remember the name). Burger was tasty, beer was fresh and service was friendly and fast. Looks like it would be a fun place to hang out in the evening as well. I will stop in again next time I'm in Golden.

First off thank you for coming to Golden and discovering what makes us unique. We hear far too often that people drive right past without taking a moment to see what a great little mountain town Golden is. Thank you also for visiting theTaps! We sincerely aim to make everyone feel welcome, give them some great pub food and pour a tasty pint. Please do come again.

We'd driven past the selection of chain restaurants, the family restaurants, fast food places, and none of them appealed. We drove to "Old Downtown" Golden, and wandered about. There were some alternatives, but my traveling companion, an Australian, wanted to go to a pub. The Golden Taps was just the ticket, to please his Aussie pub-requirements. There were some good local brews on tap for him, and the menu appealed to us both. He had a pasta with salmon, and I had quesedillas (sp?) We were both very happy with our orders, and the service. Friendly staff, but not bothersome - just helpful. The food was good, well cooked and the prices were right. It was just the place that we both enjoyed. If you're stopping for the night in Golden, don't eat on the highway, visit "Old Downtown" - stop into the shops, and then have a meal here.

The Taps is not only the coolest pub in Golden but it's also a great restaurant. Service is always top notch and the staff always sexy. I recommend the Taps to anyone visiting Golden as well as anyone living in Golden. Great drinks, great food and all at more than reasonable price. Jam night every thursday gives everyone the chance to hear some amazing talent.

Chilled atmosphere with free pool. Nice beer selection at typical Canadian prices (no more expensive than normal). Covered smoking area out back and interesting seating area out front. Open till late when you should go to the River House Cafe!
