Hello! Our Lewes taproom (a 10 minute walk from Cliffe High Street) has fifteen keg lines devoted to brewery-fresh beer, alongside a guest beer fridge and a natural and bio-dynamic wine list curated by the youngest Master of Wine in the UK. Alongside world class drinks, we offer: amazing vegan Mexican food by The Two Fridas every Friday (5 - 11pm); an ever-changing roster of street food every Saturday (12 - 11pm) and the best cheese toasties on earth every Sunday (12-6pm - from 30 May). Children and dogs are very welcome.


Each Friday, our taproom plays host to The Two Fridas who specialise in handmade vegan Mexican food. Expect everything from "chicken" jalapeno burritos and Oxacan tacos with imperial stout black beans to tacos al pastor filled with pulled "pork" and mango Scotch bonnet hot sauce.


On Saturdays, our taproom features an ever-changing roster of street-food vendors from across the UK – all expertly curated and taste-tested by the Beak team. To see who'll be serving during your visit please see below.


On Sundays, we're joined by Cadence Cycling Club, who specialise in gourmet sourdough cheese toasties filled with all manner of delicious ingredients, from kale pesto, cheddar and caramelised onion through to pastrami, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and dill pickle. There's also an ever-changing vegan option, plus limited edition toasties produced with fresh Beak beer!


We are as pleased as anyone for the regulations to be lifted and to start moving towards some semblance of normality. However, the risk of COVID-19 is still a very poignant reality and so we kindly ask you to be sensible and follow our guidelines for a safe and enjoyable environment:

– Please respect the space of other guests, who may be less comfortable with the easing of the restrictions. 
– We will continue to wear face coverings whilst working and we encourage you to do the same when moving around inside the Taproom.
– Table service whilst seated will continue for the foreseeable future, except at our outside bar when open. 
– Hand sanitiser will be available on all of our tables.
– Track and Trace check in will still be available, just ask a member of staff. 

All bookings are for a 2 hour slot. If you would like to increase that to a 4 hour sitting then please make a second reservation under the same name for 2 hours after your first booking.

We are a small business so every table really counts! Please cancel any bookings 24 hours in advance.
