The Tap House is awarded the prestigious Cask Marque

We’re very proud to have achieved the Cask Marque for The Tap House

When you’re a bar or pub that cares passionately about the beer you offer to customers, a Cask Marque is high on your list of accreditations you want to receive. It’s an independent award for pubs and bars serving great quality cask ale, and is based on the temperature, appearance aroma and taste of the ale served. With all this in mind, you’ll understand why we’re thrilled to say that The Tap House is now a Cask Marque accredited bar.

Cask Marque is run by brewers, pub groups and trade bodies with the aim of improving beer quality through an accreditation scheme. Qualified assessors visit pubs and bars around the country to determine their eligibility for a Cask Marque. One of their criteria, for example, is that the temperature of the beer must be between 10 and 14 degrees to score full marks. They leave no stone unturned when it comes to appraising ale!

To be awarded this badge of quality backs up our passion and determination to serve only the best local ale to the people of Shoreham. We’re so proud to have received this accolade and are determined to keep up the good work!

If you are looking for a function venue in Shoreham, which offers delicious catering options, why not try The Tap House?

Hot on the heels of our incredibly well received finger buffet platters offered during the run up to Christmas, we have now introduced a similar, less festive set of sharing menus available to parties or groups of 12 or more with all diners eating from the same menu.

We offer a choice of 3 set menus to suit your budget, from £9.95 per person, to £19.95 per person.  Each has a varied selection of platters including a number of vegetarian selections and often 1 or more vegan dishes.

Depending on the size of your group, the rear section of The Tap House lends itself perfectly to being sectioned off for your exclusive use, ideally for groups of around 20 or more, we will happily discuss your requirements and accommodate your group in the best way we can.

Sundays at The Tap House, Roasts and Music

Sundays are a great day to visit the Tap House for not one but two huge reasons!  Delicious roast dinners and chilled live music.

Tap House Roasts | Sunday Roasts in ShorehamThe Tap House roasts were introduced as a Sunday special earlier this month, but received such high praise that we soon set the ball rolling to make Sunday roasts a permanent feature.  Launching on the 23rd December, our new Sunday menu features a choice of tasty roast dinners, with all the trimmings including amazing Yorkshire puddings.  But we have not forgotten that many of our Shoreham customers still want their favourite signature burgers and mussel dishes at The Tap House, so we have included these on our Sunday menu too.

Sunday Roasts are now a perfect pre-cursor to the Sunday Sessions, chilled live acoustic music performed by local artists who fill the Tap House with their tunes from 4-7pm each and every Sunday.  Free entry, its the perfect way to round off your weekend, and if you have already enjoyed a roast it’s a great way of extending your Sunday treat by not rushing off, but enjoying the atmosphere with a couple of extra drinks.

Our musicians have been getting lots of wonderful feedback, a particular favourite has been Tom Walker who comes back regularly to perform at The Tap House.  Keep up to date with our Sunday Sessions by following our Facebook page.

Cosy Shoreham Pub | Tap House ShorehamOpened in June, The Tap House enjoyed a wonderful first Summer in Shoreham, but as the nights draw in we have upped the cosiness factor inside!

Slake Gin at The Tap House

At the Tap House we pride ourselves on the variety of drinks to suit all tastes.  Handpicked by our team, we select as many local varieties of ales, beer and wine, and now we are even able to add local Slake Gin!

Distilled in Shoreham by Sea, West Sussex, a stone’s throw from our door, Slake offers a delicious Sussex dry gin, based on the British classic London gin style.  Described as a juniper and citrus forward, but without a citrus fruit in sight!  This bold gin is delightfully paired with Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic Water, and simply garnished with a lemon slice.

Slake is also special due to the incredible effort they put into sourcing ingredients using traditional foraging methods for many of their recipes.  The team describe combing the countryside looking for aromatic edibles to forage and return to their distillery where they dry the botanicals they have sourced and incorporate them into delicately-balanced ‘terroir’ recipes good enough to be sipped neat, like Slake’s original Hedgerow Gin. Once the spirits have been created, the Slake family assembles each bottle by hand, including sealing each bottle with wax.

We are also pleased to announce a special Gin tasting and talk at the Tap House hosted by Slake, which will take place in November, just in time for the release of their 2018 Hedgerow Gin vintage. More details to be announced via our social media channels.

Progress Report – Our new Shoreham bar is almost finished!

We are very pleased to report that our refurbishment of our new Shoreham Bar, The Tap House, is almost complete!  We have been working hard over the past few weeks along with our trusty builders Shore-Build Sussex to transform the interior and exterior of the building.  We are so happy with how it is looking and sure the Shoreham public will love it too.  We have opted for a stunning blue to adorn the frontage and interior, complemented by flint walls, convex brass mirrors and antique Parisien street lights above the bar.  Behind the bar, which is adorned with our trademark tiling, we have installed a huge smoky mirror wall to hold shelves and shelves of bottles, showing off our vast array of wines, gins and other spirits.

Here is a gallery of the work so far……
