Tap Room

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 at least 6 keg lines and 2 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 and our neighbours Tapp’d Cocktails. The Tap Room is also open for take-away draught, bottled and canned beer.

We are not taking bookings as we have lots of space for you to enjoy our freshly poured #LoveLeigh beers.

We are busy organising different food companies to pop up at our taproom yard, keep an eye on our socials for updates or our events page which you can find here. But when we don’t have any food planned for the taproom, please feel free to get your favourite takeaway delivered to enjoy alongside our beers.

For full info on our tours and experiences please see the info below on this page.

Our opening hours will be:

1-8pm Thursday
1-9pm Friday & Saturday
1-6pm Sunday

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, and your choice of cask, keg or bottled beer (price variable). The Brew Day should take place at least four weeks before your event to allow time for fermentation and conditioning.
