Tap Room

We will be reopening the outside of our taproom on Thursday 15th April. Keeping in line with national restrictions we will be operating for outside seating only, rule of 6 per table and a seated table service only. We are not taking bookings as we have lots of outside space for you to enjoy our freshly poured #LoveLeigh beers.

Our opening hours will be:

4-8pm Thursday 15th April
4-8pm Friday 16th April
1-8pm Saturday 17th April
1-5pm Sunday 18th April


If you would like to taste our beer straight from the Tap, then a visit to our Tap Room is definitely called for. It’s quirky and industrial at the same time and we are blessed with fabulous regulars who along with our staff will soon make you feel at home. In addition to the actual Tap Room we have a heated outside covered area and a separate indoor seating area The Cockleshed. 

We have 6 keg lines and at least two cask beers available at any one time as well as occasional guest beers and our full range of beers in bottle and can. We also have a range of other drinks available including Essex Dry Gin from our friends at the Essex Spirit Company from Chelmsford. The Tap Room is also open for take-away draught, bottled and canned beer.

Our opening hours (subject to the present lockdown being relaxed) are:

Thursday 4-8pm
Friday 4-8pm
Saturday 1-8pm
Sunday 1-5pm

Be the Brewer £125pp

A perfect gift experience for the would-be brewer in your life. Join our Brewers for a full day’s experience during which you will help with every aspect of the brewing process. It’s a long and wet day, so rough clothes and wellies or work boots are essential. We will provide breakfast, a Ploughman’s Lunch and a beer tasting at the end of the day and we can accommodate up to 2 people at a time. A few weeks later we will provide you with an 18 pint minipin or 18 bottles/cans of the beer you have made plus one of our branded T Shirts.

Brew your own celebration beer – £500

What could be better on your big day than drinking beer you have made?  We started our business using a bespoke mini brewery for small brews and using this kit our brewers will help you through every stage of the brewing process.  This will take a full day and ideally suits one or two people.  You will agree the recipe in advance (with expert advice from our brewers) and we will have everything ready for your Brew Day.  You will also be able to design your own bottle labels. We will provide a Ploughman’s lunch and a beer tasting at the end of the day.  We can be flexible on the format you would like for your beer so just ask.  The price includes the full experience day for two, breakfast and lunch, beer tasting, a cask (72 pints) of beer and 100 bottles.  The Brew Day should take place at least four weeks before your event to allow time for fermentation and conditioning.
