I am not the type to moan or complain and generally let things go, however, I feel so strongly about this. We used to frequently visit the Pantiles in the summer months and came across the Pantiles Tap, situated off the main Pantiles itself. We...More

Chilled out and friendly with lovely beers. Sunny outside seating in the summer, warm interior in the winter. Cheese rolls on the bar to help soak up some of the stronger beers. Great wall of cider for those that can't make it to China. Perfect...More

I've been drinking in the Tap ever since it opened and can recommend it to anyone who fancies drinking something other than the usual mass produced beers from the big breweries. Friendly staff and I always feel more than welcome when I'm in there.
