After work drinks on a Friday saw a few colleagues and I swinging past The Tap Room, it was OK not great. The craft beer on the other hand was something to behold and made up for the average experience otherwise.

Burgers were good, quite basic but with half price offer we paid for the whole night, including beers and tip - £16 for two, so basic seemed quite reasonable. Don't know if I am giving the place undue credit because South Africa overall is a lot cheaper to eat and drink than what I am used to in the UK...

Service was quite slow, they were not busy! And the beer tasting thing my husband ordered came with substitutes as they had run out of the advertised one... now it was still enjoyable but I question the organisation/management of a brewery tap house that runs out of its own beer??! Can't organise a p*** up in a brewery?!

Anyway, the staff that served us were very friendly and tried to make up for the fact their wifi was down, causing us issues ordering an uber home by calling a cab for us and looking out for its arrival.

Overall a good cheap night, but could be incredible with a few minor management adjustments!

For really good food and cold beer this is a great place. The fish was fresh and very good. The portions is very big. Loved the industrial look and feel of the place. Good and friendly service.
