The taproom has a certain rustic charm with wooden tables, barrels and benches, wood covered interior walls, artwork covered external walls and a dark taproom interior that perfectly matches the vibe of the place. The inside is snug but surprisingly spacious, and there is lots of extra covered seating in a courtyard area plus additional uncovered seating elsewhere.
Street food is available from ‘Scoundrels’, a permanent unit in the courtyard serving delicious Mexican food.
The bar has 12 keg taps serving mostly Old Street Brewery beers with the odd guest tap. A large TV screen has the beer listings with full descriptions, so choosing your tipple is an easy pleasure. A well-stocked beer fridge offers additional choices and the bar also stocks wines and spirits.
Opening times are 5pm until late Monday to Thursday and from noon until late Friday, Saturday and Sunday. There was a satisfying buzz about the place, even early on a Friday afternoon when we visited, and we imagine their evening events are quite an experience. If you fancy a taproom with plenty of life, then The Old Street Brewery & Taproom is certainly worth a visit.
