The Tap House

16-18 East Street, Shoreham, BN43 5ZE

Founded in 2018, 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. On the menu, our signatures include various Mussel Pots, homemade Burgers, Seafood Specials and a good selection of Vegetarian and Vegan dishes. In Winter we serve a Homemade Sunday Roast.

We frequently change our Menus and our chef’s produce daily specials. On Mondays & Tuesdays only, we serve a limited menu offering tasty bite starters, a selection of sharing boards, sandwiches and baguettes. In Winter a hot soup and stew are available too.

Enjoyment of The Tap House goes beyond the four walls; lap up afternoon sun in our outdoor seating area on popular East Street. It’s sister places include the Beach House and Corner House, both located in Worthing.
