The Team Behind The Tap House – a Brand New Bar in Shoreham

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…
