We are proud to announce that we will be hosting a very special evening at The Tap House to celebrate the launch of Slake Spirit’s Hedgerow Gin for 2018!
The evening will showcase Slake’s Shoreham based Gin, with Dr. Tom offering some exclusive insights during the night explaining the incredible process Slake follow to create their delicious Gins. Along the way, guests will be treated to some delightful Gin cocktails served with different formats and botanical infusions.
Primarily, though, the night will be dedicated to launching Slake’s Hedgerow Gin for 2018, for which the Slake team comb the countryside looking for aromatic edibles to forage and incorporate into a delicately-balanced ‘terroir’ recipe which is good enough to be sipped neat.
This exclusive event is ticket-only and limited to just 30 guests. Each ticket is priced at £34.95 per person, and includes 3 Gin cocktails and a delicious 2 course meal, along with Dr Tom’s fascinating talk.
TO BOOK PLEASE CALL: 01273 965194

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 proud and very pleased to announce that The Tap House is now open in Shoreham. Situated on East Street, we are the newest bar to open in the town. We will be offering a full wine list, craft beers and ales, lager, cider, spirits and a full Gin list. In addition to drinks we will have a tasty menu featuring our signature burgers, something we are famous for in our sister bars The Corner House and The Beach House in Worthing. We will also offer seafood, particularly Mussels, and at the weekend we will have a menu that includes brunch.
From getting the keys just a couple months ago in April, the team have been incredibly busy behind the scenes. We have undertaken a complete re-fit of the interior, with wall removal, new bar, log burner and some incredible interior details such a our huge convex mirrors and vintage Parisien light fittings.
Features that have made us popular in Worthing will be continued in Shoreham, including a discount for NHS workers, Tuesday-Thursday, a weekly local ‘street of the week’ which also offers a discount (Tues-Friday), a charity quiz night, which will take place once a month and a dedicated Burger Day (Tuesdays) where a house burger and drink is available for the offer price of £10.95.

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……
Bring man’s best friend to The Tap House – we’re a dog friendly pub in Shoreham
At The Tap House, we believe that the whole family should be welcome – and this includes man’s best friend! We’re a dog friendly pub in Shoreham, which means our staff are always excited to see a wagging tail. Just like our sister bars in Worthing (The Corner House and The Beach House) we always have a jar of dog biscuits on the bar and a water bowl ready to go.
Thanks to our mouth watering menu, The Tap House is the perfect stop those who have just been for a stroll, looking for good home cooked food to refuel, and being dog friendly makes this a lot easier. We’re looking forward to our first summer at The Tap House, and with our alfresco dining area, we’re hoping to see many happy dogs join us!
With tasty home cooked food, local ales and relaxed surroundings, The Tap House is a fantastic place to sit and relax, and you can be safe in the knowledge that you can do so with you four-legged friend at your side. There’s even biscuits on the bar so they don’t miss out on a tasty treat…
Bringing their success from Worthing to a brand new bar in Shoreham
It’s fair to say that The Tap House, our stylish new bar in Shoreham is a family affair, being run by two brothers, Matt and Tim Taylor, and their friend Darren Gearing, affectionately known as Sid. Through a mutual flair for hospitality and a passion for local food and drink, this is third third venture, and their first in this charming seaside town.
Well known Brighton pubs The 3 Jolly Butchers and The Paris House were once looked after by Matt and Tim, so it’s no surprise that the venues they own now are a roaring success. Darren Gearing and his wife Mami are hoteliers and restaurateurs, meaning they know not only how to create the perfect atmosphere, but get the food spot on too.
The collaboration between these three started in 2013 with The Beach House in Worthing, a seaside bar and cafe with views across the ocean and an excellent reputation for the best burgers in town. The loyal customer base that formed quickly around this popular bar were delighted when a second establishment, The Corner House, was opened just up the road. This traditional pub is big on roasts, cosiness, and superb specials.
Now, they’ve opened The Tap House in Shoreham, bringing their unique take on what makes a pub special to another of Sussex’s beautiful towns…
