The Tapas deal with a bottle of wine is great value. If you like crab then the potted crab is a must. There is always new items added to the menu to keep it varied. The only issue is that the Taphouse does not take bookings so you may have to wait for a table. If you mention that you... More

Walked for miles and ended up here after 7 on a Sunday night. Thanks to the staff who were so friendly and accommodating and even though they'd finished serving food went out of their way to make sure we were fed! The most amazing potted crab, toast and coleslaw! We'll be back!

Love this place. Wether its tapas or a Sunday lunch, its a brilliant little venue for food. If your lucky enough to get a table, make the most of it. My only criticism is, the roasties on the Sunday roast, they're not great. As a chef myself I understand how hard it is to get decent roasties out when its... More

Good atmosphere, not had any "cool" makeover. Food + beer grt. Staff v friendly. Can get busy but staff will soon find a table--at least Cliff will. Never rushed.

Had a fantastic Sunday dinner here last week, really nice tender chicken. Will definitely be returning. If you're really hungry there's a mixed meat option for £1 extra and it's well worth the money for how much more you get.
