Oakham’s Brewery Tap bigger than most with a dogleg counter snaking along one side ending at a glass wall giving views of the brewery. The floor is new flags, plain walls with poster decor, furniture is a mix, mostly low chairs and tables with a collection of leather arm chairs and a sofa near the door. There is a mezzanine floor as well. Beer mainly from Oakham is dispensed from three banks of four pulls, two are doubled up Oakham products the other bank had Salopian Darwin’s Origin and a different Oakham. The beer was ok but not really the showcase quality you ought to get in a brewery tap, so I see why it’s not a GBG entry. A range of usual suspect kegs also available. Sadly my Saturday night visit coincided with some event that necessitated the services of a DJ and some flashing lights.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Brewery Tap

Nowadays home of the Oakham Brewery, and the rather tap (which, slightly oddly, looks more like a sports bar inside) is very handy for the station. With numerous handpumps on different parts of the counter, I found five of its own beers - including the Dragon in Bavaria (a new one on me, £3.70) - and Wolf Whiskers as a guest. With the cavernous feel, and a slightly surprising lack of customers on a Sunday afternoon, I left feeling a bit underwhelmed.

Already well reviewed so I'll stick with saying that it's a large brewery tap with a Thai restaurant in a large, oddly soulless building.
For me though, as a fan of Oakham beers, it's been a must visit for some time so I was pleased to slide in for a pint or two.
Beers on were mainly Oakham - Inferno, JHB, Bishops Farewell, Citra and Once to Yourself alongside Fat Cat Salopian as a guest. I was a touch disappointed to find only Once to Yourself that isn't widely available elsewhere and had hoped to see Green Devil IPA.
More disappointing though was the beer quality which, to me, was flat and lifeless. Inferior to many other venues serving Oakham beers.
I'm pleased to have visited and it doesn't alter my view of Oakham as a top brewer but I'll stick with enjoying their beers elsewhere.
