Bucking Fastard left this review about The Taproom

From the outside this looks like a bottle shop ,but persevere inside for beyond this modest display there is a bar and a series of thin refectory tables with long benches.Real ale is from stillage housed in a cooling glass cupboard.Two handpumps remained out of use on the bar .Although quite a few barrels were settling only Siren Craft YuLu and XT3 was being served on a Saturday afternoon and prior to a televised Arsenal game which might indicate that there is more focus on keg beers from 7 taps than real ale.My XT3 was decent and served in a dimple mug but cost £4.40.At the back of the room there is a pizza machine and that's the food option,while a small coutyard is opposite with more bench seating.It's all a little sparse,there is a cellar bar with a minute stage,but there was a friendly welcome from the young barman while a young lady was manning the bottle shop till,with cans from hipster London brewers on sale.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Taproom

If you call in here on a Monday, all their ales are £3.40 a pint, so lucky us. Five ales on gravity served from a micro cellar behind the bar. We went for the Hammerton N1 Moon So Hop. They also have a premium Gin and Tonic menu and pizza oven. Good music on our visit, some interesting Blues.
