TAKE a look inside Warrington’s latest tap house which opened yesterday, Thursday.

The Taphouse in Culcheth is open after taking over the former Culcheth TV and Video shop and they are now serving customers who enjoy or tipple or two.

After the success of their Ashton-in-Makerfield, Wigan venue, they have worked since the summer to get their Culcheth venture up to scratch, and owners Ste and Emma Hamilton cannot wait to get underway.

“We are equally as excited I’d say. I can’t wait,” said Ste, who first saw the premises up for sale last November.

“It’s been more exciting because there has been so much footfall and we have done it up ourselves, getting to meet everyone is a big thing for us because of the amount of people that have walked past and said ‘I can’t wait for it to open’ and asked ‘when is it going to open?’

“That is the exciting bit because you are doing it up while meeting the people that you are probably going to be serving a pint to in a few weeks.”

They are the only craft beer bar in Culcheth and by doing something different, they hope that this will attract customers to the Lodge Drive bar.

“There’s nothing like it around here so that’s what we are aiming for really,” Ste, from Haydock, said.

“It’s a brand new thing.”

The Taphouse has some smart artwork created by Ste’s friend Jamie Stockley on the walls, there is a window to see in the cellar for a talking point and they will be encouraging guests to bring their own records to play on their Vinyl if they wish.

Ste continued: “It’s a different type of vibe that we are going to have.

“That’s something different. Sunday afternoon, listening to some tunes and having a pint, it’s nice and that’s what we are going for.”

And after a successful soft opening last weekend, here they are.

With eight keg lines, two cask hand pumps and lots of cans locally sourced and from across the world, Ste and Emma have opened their doors for business.

The Taphouse will be open from Thursday – Sunday from 2pm until 10pm.
