Large place, 2 floors, comfy leathersofas waited for us after a short walk from the train station. Good fresh beers on tap, food looked delicious, could easily spent 2-3 hours more here.The Jam, Clash and other British favourites on the speakers,
A huge open plan, modern looking bar on two floors close to the city centre. They have e small selection of cask Oakham ales and even more guests plus the usual commodity lagers and ciders. Fine service, but wifi requires registration which is a pain. A decent pub, but it’s a shame there are not more bottled Oakham beers.
Visited on a sunday afternoon. Easy to get to and very close to the centre of Peterborough. The interior is modern, dark and a bit shaby looking. It It feels very much like sitting in a bar that would be lively at night. Not the most pleasant of atmospheres and the music playing only increases the bar feel.
They serve thai food here. We had the Sunday special - 2 courses for £10. Excellent value and really good quality. Thoughtfully enjoyed our lunch.
Beer selection - good selection of Oakham beers, mostly core tange but a couplw of new ones. plus some ciders and a few macro keg lines.
Old Review: Plenty of guest beers, all in good condition. Quick and friendly staff. Was in a mad rush for a train, couldn’t really absorb the atmosphere properly. Seemed like an OK pub, but a bit bustley.
New review: Only seemed to have Oakhams on tap. Big open atmosphere, looks a bit warehousey or nightclubby, or something. New beer for me was a tip-top Oakham DIPA though, so left P’boro with a smile on my face.

Near the train station, the Brewery Tap fulfils all your waiting-for-a-train needs and more. Open, spacious, modern and surprisingly dark for an early afternoon, the Brewery Tap has 4 Oakham ales and two guests. The condition of the beer is as good as you will find anywhere. The only real downside is the lack of hard-to-find Oakham beers (they only had the standard beers) and few bottles. So, a couple of points off selection. Otherwise a godsend to Oakhamphiles.
Oakham tap located within spitting distance of Peterborough BR station.
Externally not much to look at, a 30’s style estate pub, however the former brewing vat shelter/entrance sets it apart a little.
The decor inside is modern and not what you’d expect from the externals of your typical 30’s place.
My one visit here was on a Saturday afternoon and trade was pretty brisk.
All Oakham beers as you’d expect and all in good nick.
If you have half an hour to change trains in Peterborough this is well worth a quick visit.
