The Road To Reopening

New details as of April 2021

As we have no outdoor space (and a very small inside) our road to welcoming you back in will be longer than other's. While we cannot wait to open our doors to you, we will be waiting until we know we can follow all guidelines safely.

Until then, we will continue to trade as an off-licence for all of your take-out needs.

We encourage you to place orders via email ( putting 'Beer Order' in the subject line) stating the day you would like to collect your order. We will then give you a collection slot so that we are avoiding creating a bottle-neck in  Church Lane.

We also request that you wear a mask when collecting your order and we will do likewise. Although we welcome walk-up orders, you may have to wait while your order is prepared.

Times will be as follows from Tuesday 9th February:

Tuesday  - 4pm - 7pm

Friday - 3pm - 7pm

Saturday - 1pm - 6pm

Email enquiries will be dealt with daily. 

We thank you for your understanding at this difficult time and for your continued support. We couldn't do this without all of you. Stay safe x


Welcome to The Apothecary Tap


About Us

The Apothecary Tap is Banbury's only specialist craft beer bar and bottle shop.
Opened in April 2019, it is run by husband and wife team Rob and Karen. We specialise in small batch craft beers from independent brewers, both local and from around the globe, including a wide range of vegan, vegetarian and gluten free beers.
The Apothecary Tap grew out of our passion for craft beer and the desire to bring this to Banbury.

What we do

Currently we have 9 keg lines of carefully selected, ever changing beers with at least 2 box ciders and over 100 cans and bottles to drink in or takeaway.
