New details as of 19th July 2021

Soooo...after lots of thought, we will be changing very little at the moment. 

We will remain masked when we are serving you and ask you to do the same when moving around inside.

You will be able to order at the bar and carry your drinks back to your table yourself.

Sanitizer will continue to be available and we will be keeping up with our cleaning regime.

For the moment, there will be no standing and drinking inside but we have been able to increase our numbers as well as our opening times.                                                                                                                                                                           

Opening Hours are as follows:

Tuesday 4pm – 7pm

Wednesday 4pm - 7pm

Thursdays 4pm – 9pm

Fridays as a Bottleshop 2pm – 6pm

             as a Bar 7pm – 10:30pm

Saturdays 12pm – 8pm

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

Remember - Bum on seat or mask on face!

Due to our cleaning procedures, until further notice we cannot allow 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.
