Award Winning Brewery Tap

The Grainstore Brewery Tap opened its doors in September 1994 and today is recognised as one of the best brew pubs in Britain.

The combination of superb beers, brewed on the premises, and a traditional pub setting has proven to be a winner, earning the accolade of The Good Pub Guide ‘Own Brew Pub of the Year’ on no less than five occasions in 2003, 2011, 2014, 2016 and 2019.

With regular live music, including Jazz, Blues, Rock and little bit of Pop, a whole host of traditional pub games such as Bottle Walking, Darts, Bar Billiards and Giant Jenga, regular Quizzes, promotions and Comedy Nights to occasionally, blind tastings, there is always something to see or do.

The Tap plays host to tours of the brewery by arrangement, and from the year 1999, every August, has been the home of the annual ‘Rutland Beer Festival’, featuring over 70 Real Ales and Ciders. 2010 witnessed the introduction of our Annual Cider and Sausage Festival in late May, which has gone on to establish itself as the best Cider Festival outside of the West Country.

Our friendly and helpful team, are always on hand with any help and advice you may need regarding our Ales, and can assist you in selecting the right beer for any occasion.

With plenty of parking in the immediate vicinity, and Oakham Railway Station right next door, transport is never a problem.
