The Brewery Tap, a grade II listed building was converted in a public house in the 1980's from an earlier 18th century vernacular building (possibly a farmhouse) that was extended in the early-mid 19th century. The period building built out of sandstone 'brick' with ashlar dressing and stone stale roof. Although converted in a pub in the 1980's there are suggestions that it had been a pub at some point during its history, the presences of a 19th century beer-barrel ramp supports this. The building in its history has also been a bakery and cobblers.
The Single-roomed pub has a central bar, the pub, then bakery and now pub again has a minimum of four real ales on at any one time, which are forever changing. Ales from the nearby Junction Brewery are often featured. There are two real cider always on sale and these are usually from the Westons range. The locally famous pub has regular, live rock bands which attracts talent and customer from near and far. Its annual beer festival takes place in August and also hosts a 'Bike and Trike' show. The pub has a rear beer garden that is sheltered.

A natural product brewed using traditional ingredients. The secondary fermentation process is left to mature in the cask and then served to your fresh. This fermentation process makes real ale unique amongst beers, providing a wonderful taste, and aroma, which processed beer, can never offer. Served through a traditional hand-pull pump. There is a huge range of different ales each with different strengths taste and qualities. The fermentation process turns sugars in malt into alcohol. Ales, which include bitters, mild, stouts, porter, barley wines, golden and old ales, use top-fermenting yeast. The traditional British method of brewing uses yeast that creates a thick head at the top of the fermenting vessel and the process is short, more vigorous and carried out at higher temperatures compared to larger.
