New details as of 16th June 2021

Oh hello, didn’t see you there, it’s been too long. So..

Exciting news...


(With Provisos)

Opening Hours are as follows:

Tuesdays as a Bottleshop 3pm – 7pm

Thursdays as a Bottleshop 3pm – 5:30pm

                  as a Bar 6:30pm – 9pm

Fridays as a Bottleshop 3pm – 6pm

             as a Bar 7pm – 10pm

Saturdays as a Bottleshop and Bar 12pm – 7pm

We won’t be taking bookings so just swing by! But remember we have limited spaces.

Takeaway’s during Bar opening will be limited to cans and bottles, but by all means bring your own growlers and we can fill those while you have a beer.

As before, it will be table service only, you must wear a mask when entering the bar and follow social distancing guidelines.

This, I should add, is not debatable. I do not have extra pairs of hands to call on and don’t wish to be harsh with anyone.

Remember - Bum on seat or mask on face!

If you are in a rush and we are busy please show patience and as you may already know if you follow the tap on social media, we have a Lenny dog and he is a poorly fella, so until further notice we cannot allow other dogs in the bar.

Can’t wait to pour you a fresh, cold beer straight from our taps into an actual glass!!

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.
