Tap Tavern – Winner 2018 Time Out London Love Awards
Tap Tavern has been voted Best Local Bar/Pub in Richmond! I’ve had my eye on this little gem since they opened about an year ago. Mostly because I thought it was just what Richmond needed – an independent free house offering lovely craft beers and small-batch gins as well as scrumptious bar food and a cool atmosphere.
Situated in Princes Street, just two minutes from Whole Foods, it is ideally placed for after-work drinks, after-shopping snacking, a night out or even a date. The atmosphere is very relaxed but you can just sense that everything has been carefully selected and chosen to provide the best drinking and dining experience. A specially built 20 tap beer wall, host their daily, rotating selection of beers sourced from local & Uk bases, independent microbrewers. Monthly specials feature some niche breweries from around the world, with varieties not found in your typical local. To name a few: West Coast Pale Ales, Saisons, Double IPAs, Tropic Session IPA, Milk Stouts, Pilsners, and some stellar specialty casks.
Last week I had the pleasure of photographing their new gin menu. These unique gin cocktails make use of the most delicious ingredients, such as gooseberry, rosemary, figs and even sampphire! Many that you would never see in a gin cocktail but work really well. Cocktails were created by Jack and the bar staff and will be featured on their new summer menu.
