Occupying the stunning Grade II listed West & East Lodges in Euston Square, this "craft beer house" is brought to London by the same team running the well regarded Sheffield Tap. For a while the East Lodge operated purely as a cider house but was then converted into a cocktail bar. But it changed again (see below) but as of the end of April 2023 it changes again - "For how long I don't know. But it has reopened as the Cider Tap I asked the guys at the Euston Tap and they can only say for as long as it lasts."

The West Lodge features up to 7 changing cask beers and one cider. What's on tap is indicated on large chalk boards (and regularly updated on their website) served through unique taps on the bar back wall. In addition and above the cask taps are the keg beer taps bringing exotic and unusual brews from around the world.

In the West Lodge stand huge fridges housing a vast array of bottled beer. As you enter the small main room of either Lodge the bar is straight in front of you, with fine mirrors and the whole decorated using a nice line in tiles.

In West, there are three on the ground fllor a number of tables with seating, the East is a bit more generous with banquette seating as well. Both have curved staircases (an aspect of the Grade II listing) leading up to another room with seating and the toilets. The East Lodge has had some additional windows put in and similarly so in the West Lodge.

The Cider Tap in the East Lodge reopened but then at 04/10/22 it became the "Bitburger Tap" Initially it was thought that it would be in that form for Oktoberfest only and would return as the Cider Tap afterwards but it did continue for a longer time.

There is now a permanent outside, covered and heated space. There is a TV on the side wall facing that area used for major sporting events.

On Mon-Sat the closing time is an unspecified "until late". The East Lodge tends not to open until later.

Payment by way of card only.
