At the Tap Yard Bar in Newham you’ll find plenty of outdoor seating so you can spread out and enjoy a pint or two of our freshest brews, with a traditional indoor bar area at your disposal in case the weather takes a turn. With large tables, quiet corners and plenty of shade amongst the wood cladding and green planters, it’s the perfect place for family and friends to meet in an accessible spot on the edge of the city. We’re dog friendly too!

We have some parking on site but more popular are our handy bike racks. The brewery is just a 5 minute stroll down the river from Lemon Quay and enjoys easy access to Newham’s cycle and footpath network, so why not leave the car at home?

As you’d expect, you’ll find all of Skinner’s freshest brews on tap. As well as Skinner’s core range and special releases, you’ll also find a good selection of cider, wine and spirits. We serve tea and coffee, and have a growing number of cold low and no alcohol options too. Our food offering is simple but irresistible. Hot Ann’s Pasties, with vegan and gluten free options available. Most Fridays during spring and summer we also host street food pop ups at the Tap Yard Bar, keep an eye on our socials for more information. What more could you want!
