Taps Tavern is a comfortable, friendly pub with a good selection of beers on tap, a decent wine list, and an interesting, varied menu with an emphasis on local suppliers. There is a children's menu, and children receive good treatment. The atmosphere has the well-worn feel that makes for a good pub experience, and in the early evening before the musicians start, it is a good place for quiet conversation. We are regular out-of-state visitors to Poultney, and Taps is always on our agenda. Menu tip: Try the mussels--they're first rate.
