WELCOME
Welcome to The Taproom in the heart of Islington.

The Taproom came on the scene as a temporary licenced premises back in 2012 serving just cask ale. We opened for 6 weeks at the current premises. Our aim was to bring quality cask ale from around London and the UK to the people of Islington. The project was a instant success, so in 2013 we decided to make it permanent.

The Stillage

We decided early on that we would like to keep the casks on display but this is easier said than done when conditioning and temperature are taken into account. After many months of design we came up with a draft plan and found a company that could build it for us. The outcome is what you see today, a temperature controlled stillage, gravity dispensing cask ale in perfect condition every time. There is less than half a pint of beer in the line between the cask and the glass.

8 x Gravity Cask Ale

7 x keg lines

BILAL ZAFAR - MATT FORDE - TANIA EDWARDS - MEGA SUNDAY PREVIEW DAY
Sunday 22nd July 2018 at The Taproom »

Bilal Zafar - Love Bots

Best Newcomer nominee 2016 and Hackney Empire (NATYS) winner is back with a brand-new show! Social media has been taken over by bots spreading hate, fear and influencing how we vote. In Lovebots, Bilal has made his own bots to fight back, except these bots only want to spread love and compassion. As seen/heard on BBC Three, Channel 4, MTV, BBC iPlayer, and BBC Radio 4. 'Witty and absorbing... highly entertaining' (Times). 'Delivers big laughs' (Guardian). 'A natural storyteller with a very likeable stage presence' ***** (Shortcom.co.uk).

Matt Forde - Brexit Through The Gift Shop

The whole thing's a mess and only one person can sort it out. Sadly, we have no idea who. Join Britain's leading political comedian, Matt Forde, for his last show as an EU citizen. 'A hugely impressive hour of political comedy... it keeps hitting the spot' **** (Chortle.co.uk). 'Possibly the best political comedy show on the Fringe' (Telegraph). 'Singlehandedly fulfilling comedy's brief of taking our political masters to task. Combining spot-on impressions with up-to-the-minute observations' (Mail on Sunday).

Tania Edwards - Not My Dog

Not My Dog is a hilariously dark exploration of modern life and our need to (mis)represent it from stand-up Tania Edwards who has written for Mock the Week (BBC Two), Stand Up for the Week and Twit of the Year (Channel 4). Tania recently supported Katherine Ryan on tour. Her scintillating one-liners were crowned top jokes of the Fringe (Mirror), James Acaster’s Best Edinburgh Fringe Picks (Guardian), and Glamour Magazine’s Top Female Comics. 'Cuts daggers with sharp one-liners' (Glamour Magazine). 'Fantastically seamy side to the material... also great with audience banter... sublime... brilliant' (Chortle.co.uk).
