The Tap House

16-18 East Street, Shoreham, BN43 5ZE

The Tap House is nestled at the bustling heart of Shoreham-by-Sea, just a stone’s throw from the town’s historic harbour.

Dedicated to offering a wide range of craft beers, real ales and gins, friendly service and a selection of tasty dishes, The Tap House is the perfect place for a relaxed lunch with friends, a family meal, or just a delicious drink enjoyed in stylish surroundings.

Enjoyment of The Tap House goes beyond the four walls; lap up afternoon sun in our outdoor seating area on popular East Street.

Very cosy place for lunch, tasty burgers and a log burner too. Staff are extremely friendly.
