    Default Hogs Back Taproom - not a pub?

    Apologies if this has already been mentioned, but the Hogs Back brewery at Tongham has opened a taproom, however I am not submitting it as a new pub as you have to book in advance and pay a charge of £14 (which does however include a 3.5 pint flagon of ale, so not that unreasonable). Perhaps post-Covid it will open up generally.

    In case anyone is interested, details are at https://shop.hogsback.co.uk/collecti...able-booking-1.
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    I would say not a pub.

    There is a separate bar counter serving a covered and outdoor seating area, although this was obviously closed when I was there to 'click and collect' in June (and probably still is).

    Shortly before the first lockdown, they also announced plans for a beer garden by the hop garden, so I think the tap room and other two facilities would collectively qualify for inclusion when things get closer back to normal.

    That £14 charge is covid related.If they have a taproom its a pub by our standards.(our standards are not very high)

    Agreed, for now at least. Worth keeping an eye on though, as things are a bit odd just now.
