The Wanstead Tap was recently voted the best cultural venue in Waltham Forest which was a genuine honor and recognition for the varied programme of events we have put on.
With a seating capacity for 75 people we are the perfect venue for book readings and launches, film screenings, comedy evenings and gigs.
We promote our own events as well as take outside promoters who are looking to use our space and of course we have one of the best stocked beer bars in London.
Artists and authors who have appeared at the Tap include John Hegley, Michael Rosen, Julie Christie, Alexei Sayle, Chris Difford, Mischa Glenny, David Hepworth and many, many more.

Imagine having the Tap to yourself for the evening!
The Tap can be hired for your own private party or function. With an upper capacity of 65 it is the perfect self contained venue.
Included in the hire is the use of the Tap's PA system and lighting.
We can cater to any budget and of course every hire comes with the Tap's enormous range of beers, artisan spirits and wines.
Most private hires are on a Saturday night and we recommend guests arrive from 7.30pm. The venue is yours from 6pm after we close to the public should you need to dress or arrange anything else.
The Wanstead Tap not only has one of Londons largest selections of craft beers but also boasts a range of local, small batch spirits. We pride ourselves on buying limited release gins and vodkas as well as a range of mixers to suit every taste.
All of our beers and spirits are available to drink in and in the near future we hope to sell our spirit range by the bottle to take away.
The Tap is licensed until 11.30pm on a Friday night.
