The traditional British combination of great beer and tasty food is the founding principle of Brewery Tap. Set in the malthouse of Hall & Woodhouse’s own brewery, this bar and restaurant is a haven for beer-lovers and offers visitors the chance to tour the brewery’s facilities before sampling a pint of fresh Badger beer straight from the source.
The huge array of Dorset-made beers at Brewery Tap means that there really is something for everyone. Each has its own unique flavour and characteristic, whether it’s the full-bodied Fursty Ferret ale, the citrusy Wicked Wyvern IPA or the rich and fruity Cranborne Poacher, which offers up moreish flavours of liquorice and damson. Combine your drink with delicious, freshly made food. The menu at Brewery Tap provides a selection of small and large plates, including the sumptuous cheese and bacon burger and the light Buddha bowl, comprising sage-roasted squash, crunchy slaw, tumeric-roasted caulifl ower, courgette ribbons, red quinoa, spinach, roasted chickpeas, pickled red onions and pomegranate seeds. Many guests also go home raving about the award-winning steak and ale pie, which is made with the brewery’s own Tangle Foot beer. The brunch menu is also full of tempting and tasty dishes.
As well as all this, Brewery Tap is home to three spacious private rooms that are ideal for meetings and conferences.
