Craft Beer & Sourdough Pizzas

Locally Sourced × Crafted with passion  


The Taproom is the Royal Arsenal's only independent bar and restaurant

We pride ourselves on great beers, fantastic sourdough pizzas & our welcoming team! 

The Taproom was founded by the couple behind Hop Stuff Brewery (www.hopstuffbrewery.com). in October 2015. The Brewery was running a successful Taproom on site, but such was the demand that we needed to find our own site. Having met with Berkeley homes, and settling on 15 Major Draper Street, building works started in July 2015.

By October we were ready; cellar full, kitchen hot (really hot!) & beer cold. We're open every day, and have a massive choice of beers, wines and spirits available - so pop in & come see us soon!
