Who We Are

The Castle Tap is a small local pub with a focus on creating a welcoming and engaging space for regulars and visitors from further afield and on offering a range of drinks that appeal to people with a broad range of tastes and experiences. We are particularly proud of our carefully curated beer lists and put on a beer festival once a year as well as irregular beer and spirit tasting events.
We host live music most weekends except in the summer and enjoy putting on pop-ups supporting local crafters, foodies and artists. We also hire out space for private parties.

The easiest way to get in touch is by email either events.castletap@gmail.com (for bookings) or castletap@gmail.com for general enquiries.

Well Behaved Dogs and Children Welcome.

Don’t Know When, Don’t Know What…

We are proud to be a community pub and each month we host a book club, sea-shanty evening, eco-refill pop-up and pub quiz. There is an active darts team and we have  board games and a piano for customers to enjoy.
Additionally we have Live Music most weekends, an outdoor space for sunny afternoons and encourage local groups to book our separate TV room for events.
