Nobody stands on parade here. Unapologetically unreconstructed, great atmosphere, busy and friendly with prince and pauper standing together enjoying good beer, good ale and good company. Food is adequate and not for the gourmet but then nor are the prices.
"The Tap" will be here long after we have all passed through. If not, it will be because hell has frozen over.

A heaving pub in the backstreet of sleepy Sherbourne. My kind of pub, busy, friendly and serving good beer. The Beer was well kept and carefully served. A fine range of beers for the discerning drinker, and interesting decor and a great atmosphere. We could have stayed there all night drinking quality ales were it not for the impending feast at the Rajpoot. Many awards adorn the walls and well learnt they are too. This pub is well worth a visit.

Rough and ready and cramped establishment that is inexplicably popular, but far too many tweed jackets, turned-up rugger shirt collars and mangy dogs for my liking. Red Stripe on draught is a refreshing change, though - wish more places would serve this tangy brew. The mobile phone ban is inconvenient and somewhat irrational in my view; some of the bellowing drunken conversations I've had to listen to here couldn't have been any less irritating! Worth a trip though for the tourist.

Brilliant, we arrived on Sunday at about 1130 and did not have to sit in the bar smelling other people's chips and beans etc, this place is a proper pub, great local beer, normal nibbles and no mobiles allowed. If you want to eat on a Sunday go to a restaurant, simple really. They provided my dog with a bowl of water and we had a very nice time just drinking and chatting. It's not posh, it's not fancy, yes locals have their own seats, but this is what England was and should be again.
