We stayed one night at this pub after a visit to Oxford. We chose this particular pub due the ale on offer. We were not dissappointed! The burger I had has to be the best I have ever had, truly delicious. The room was clean and tidy and the staff very friendly and helpful. To top it off there was...

The Brewery tap is one of our locals and has everything you could ask for! Food is always amazing, especially Sunday Roast but always book ahead!! They have a great selection of ales and cater for all with many events and live music here! Great for couples and families for food or just a lazy drink!

The tap is definitely my go to pub in Abingdon. Location: I live in Abingdon so the tap is easily accessible, there are limited parking spaces next to the pub but council car parks are not far and free for 2 hours. Staff: Great friendly staff, always welcoming and helpful. Dogs are allowed if you sit around the bar area...

I took my new partner for food and drinks on Sunday knowing that the brewery tap is normally a friendly relaxed environment with good food and good beer! Upon arrival we were met with rude and abrupt staff. They were busy, but not rushed off there feet and in the past have never been so unapproachable. We asked if there...

The Brewery Tap is one of my favourite pubs. The food is great and good value (for Oxfordshire) quality pub food. They always have good ales that change frequently and friendly staff. The pub is great with an open fire place and great friendly atmosphere.

I've been here a couple of times, once for lunch with a friend and once with a group for dinner. Both experiences were good, the food seems nice and well prepared (and not too expensive!) and the service was quick and friendly both times. I'd recommend a visit, but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here.

Best southern fried chicken dinner ever. Soooo crunchy and peppery, juicy and tender. Lots of it too. Definitely a secret recipe you'll try to discover. Loved the Boston Beans and coleslaw. I've been coming here for 5 years now and it gets better and better. Staff are very welcoming and attentive, children are welcome and high chairs can be provided....

My partner ( both in our mid thirties) and I stayed here for two nights from 26-28th December as we were visiting family. We stayed in room 2, our booking had been lost but thankfully the room was still free. The staff were very helpful and the room was absolutely lovely. It was really large with a very comfy bed...
