Chapeltown Tap House & Gin Bar

Recommended Posts

The new Beer & Gin place in the arches looks good and seems busy! Anybody been? Reviews?:)

I went in Sunday afternoon. Got to say i was really impressed. So long as people understand and appreciate that it is a micropub, i think that it will do well and be a good addition to the quality pubs of Chapeltown e.g. The Commercial.

Been in a couple of times. It's OK, although I have to say that The Commercial is better for beer and gin ranges!

 

If you like Tap & Brew in Hoyland you'll like the Chap Tap. Wish them well going forward.

I think they have done a good job. It's a really nice place.

 

However, they need to do better with the beer range. This is not me being a beer snob. It's just that when I went in they had almost EXACTLY the same range of beer available at the Wetherspoons opposite for a quid a pint less. Who also have a better gin range. So whilst it will inevitably be busy with people checking it out when new, I think it may be in danger if it doesn't differentiate itself going forward. And would hate to see it close as it does give a reason to go to Chapeltown...

Not been in yet, but looks busy on the evenings I have driven past. Hopefully they can take on board ideas above and stay busy and succesful.

I've heard the old HSBC is also going to be a bar downstairs, so it will be interesting times and hopefully the bars / pubs in Chapeltown are on the up again.

We went in Saturday and it was very busy. They've done it up nicely with a bit of industrial / rail theme. Old wooden cable drum tables. etc

I'm not a gin drinker or expert, but they seemed to have a few on, and lots of the women seemed to be drinking them.

They had about 6 hand pulled beers on, and prices were ok.

If it stays like like they should do well hopefully.

That's the general opinion you keep hearing. And it's hard to dispute it when you go in and find one golden ale, 3 brown ales and a stout, and none of which is from the local breweries whose beer I want to drink most. If they start to push the boat out a bit when buying in beer, maybe I would visit more often.
