Ei Group Pub of the Year

The Tap is an award winning wet led, modern community pub, having won best Retail Pub Partnership at the 2018 Great British Pub Awards.

The pub focusses on an atmosphere where customers can relax with a drink in hand, a bag of bar snacks by their pint, a conversation to put the world to rights, and a few unusual things to keep them amused.

As our Best Drink Offer and Best Multiple Operator winners this year, Rob and Alison ensure exceptionally high standards at all of their sites. The bar at the Tap boasts 50 gins, 30 rums, 20 tequilas and mezcals, not to mention a full range of craft beers and local cask ales. They also provide freshly made pizza to order, fresh Asian noodles, antipasti and local cheese, all served from the bar to eat in or take away.

The Tap is a fantastic example of a pub that provides something for everyone, with knowledgeable staff, a fantastic drinks range, varied menu and even the choice of over 300 board games! We’re proud to have the pub as part of our estate and to name the Tap our 2019 Ei Group Pub of the Year.
