The next TAPS QUIZ will be on Wednesday 26th June at 8pm.

Quiz rules: teams of up to 6 people, £3 per person entry, no reservations, first-come-first-served on the tables. Life changing prizes, charismatic host, mild scolding and some humiliation. Cheats will be prosecuted.

Known for its devilishly difficult questions, unforgiving host, and generally joyless atmosphere, the Taps Quiz has become a regular feature of Whitstable life on the last Wednesday of each month.


Whitstable’s only dedicated craft beer bar with twelve Keykeg lines, an extensive gin list (24 at time of writing) as well as wine and cider. We have a courtyard garden at the back for sunny days.

Well behaved dogs and children are welcome (children until 6pm). The Twelve Taps is a grown-up space designed for people to enjoy the best drinks available and we ask all customers to respect that.12tapsbar.jpg

We do not have any TV screens and will not be showing any football matches or any other sports, song contests, dog shows or general elections.
