The Taphouse is a Newton Abbot institution, a craft beer bar with large outdoor seating areas, an art gallery and regular live music. We are now host to two new independent businesses – Brew & Grind, a specialist coffee shop, and The Hatch, serving up pizzas and nachos at the weekend. 

Our bar is set within a former Maltings in Newton Abbot, Devon, right next to the Templars Way footpath and cycle route, and a few minutes walk from the town centre and railway station. Here you will find a wonderful array of drinks, including extensive ranges of both alcohol-free and gluten-free options.  This is now complemented by our partner businesses, hosted inside the Taphouse:

Brew & Grind – specialist coffee shop, open Thursday and Friday 0830-1600, and Saturday and Sunday 1000-1500.

The Hatch – wood-fired pizza, nachos and hot dogs, open Tuesday, Friday and Saturday 1700-2030

With our beautiful rear terrace overlooking the railway, and our front garden facing on to Osborne Park, we’re the perfect spot for your summer get together.

Great Taphouse venue. Selling Teignworthy and other excellent beers. Friendly staff and clientele make it a joy to visit. Only a few minutes walk from the railway station.

Always a friendly welcome, whether you have a dog with you or not (although I suspect the 4 legged, waggy tail customers get most of the attention!) and usually at least one gluten free beer on draught, plus lots of gf cans and bottles to choose from to drink in or take away. My favourite bar for gluten free beer in Newton Abbot 🍻

Their fridges were full of my favourite breweries, verdent, track, overtone and neon rapter. Vibe was great, they had boardgames, friendly staff, dog friendly and Live music. Brilliant tap room. Can't wait to visit again.
