Our updated wine list has just been launched and we have some great new features!
Not only are more than half of the wines we offer vegan, we have one of the largest selections of organic and natural wines in Sussex including a wonderful natural Sauvignon Blanc from South Africa. With 6 organic wines, all vegan, and 4 ‘natural’*, if the quality of your wine is important then The Tap House must be your destination of choice.

Alongside our wonderful range of organic wines, we are also proud to be flying the flag for award winning local vineyard Ridgeview Wines. Planted in 1995 in Ditchling, East Sussex, Ridgeview specialise in sparkling wine and we are proud to be able to offer their Bloomsbury English Fizz at the Tap House. Winning the 2018 SILVER Decanter at the World Wine Awards, Ridgeview describe Bloomsbury as “light golden in colour with a fine, persistent mousse. Citrus fruit aromas with hints of melon and honey”. Sounds delicious and is something very special.
With an extensive wine list we hope that we have brought a wonderful selection of high quality wine for our discerning customers can try something new. View our full wine list here.
We are proud to reveal our new spring menus, which launched on 1st April!
As always with a focus on fresh, local ingredients, we have brought in some bright new dishes to complement our signature dishes and crowd-pleasing favourites. We are lucky to be in one of the best areas for fresh fish and seafood, which we have reflected in our springtime menus with dishes such as our smoked salmon with prawns, horseradish and lime vinaigrette appetizer (pictured right).
We have also included in both our main and Sunday menus daily oysters, the exact dish of course changes every day depending on the daily catch. Please check our board for details of what is on offer next time you visit. We are also very pleased to be able to pair our oysters with a very special Bloomsbury Ridgeview English Fizz, by the glass for £7.95. The award winning Ridgeview winery is very local, in Ditchling, East Sussex and has been producing very special sparkling English fizz for over 20 years.
Of course a Tap House menu would not be the same without our very popular signature burgers and signature mussels dishes for which we have become known throughout Shoreham. And of course, we also have choices for vegetarian and vegan diners, including our wonderful BBQ Jackfruit burger with avocado and spinach.
If you are just popping in for a spot of lunch when one of our sandwiches or salads is sure to delight. Our new melon, mint and feta salad is already proving popular! Our vegan superfood salad is full of goodness, or enjoy a more traditional Ploughman’s Platter with a whole host of tasty treats, perfect for sharing.
Rounding off our menu, our delightful new dessert Eton Mess is sure to be a crowd pleaser (pictured left).
Our Sunday menu has also had a fresh new lift for the Summer, but will continue to focus around our delicious roasts, mussels and now oysters.
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.
