Welcome to the Brewery Tap at Ware, a traditional pub with live sports and music.

The Brewery Tap pub has stood in the middle of the High Street in Ware since the 15th century. Originally a coaching inn, the bar has been transformed into a haven for cask ale, premium lager, cider and quality spirits! The pub used to have its own brewery, that’s now gone but we continue the brewing tradition by serving the best cask ales from local brewers, we even have our very own ‘Warehouse Ale’ – brewed locally to our own recipe.

Now a family run business under the management of the Migan family, come and try a pint in our delightful pub, enclosed and heated courtyard garden or cellar bar.

Sports and music pub

Pub History

The Brewery Tap is a Grade II listed building and over the years has had many alterations, including having a shopfront added in the 19th century. The earliest pub was recorded on the site in 1509 as The Horseshoe Inn and then became the Golden Cross Inn. The pub was the ‘Tap’ for the High Street Brewery between 1866 and 1878 before the brewery closed and the pub was then associated with the nearby Star Brewery, becoming the Star Brewery Tap. We’re now the good old Brewery Tap!

The Migan family look forward to welcoming you soon to The Brewery Tap
