About the Pub

Branch Pub of the Year 2018.

Adjacent to the Fat Cat Brewery, this welcoming watering hole serves a wide range of quality real ales, alongside an impressive range of real ciders and craft and bottled beers, as well as running a bookshop/club for the customers. As the name suggests, the pub is the 'tap' for the Fat Cat Brewery, so you'll find most of their beers available most of the time.

The large and airy main bar features a distinctive solid oak bar top, and has plenty of seating and a small stage at one end, where regular live music events are held. Old brewery and beer adverts and other brewery paraphernalia decorate the walls and roof space, where you'll also find a working set of traffic lights, which indicate whether the bar is open or not!

The pub has two outside seating areas: a large expanse of grass at the front, open to the road, and an enclosed and covered patio and garden at the rear. There's cycle parking at the front, and a small car park.

Built in the 1970s as the Wherry, the pub was bought and significantly refurbished in 2005 by Colin Keatley, as the second in the Fat Cat group.
