The Twelve Taps


The Twelve Taps is a beer, gin and cocktail bar in the heart of Whitstable. We have twelve lines of keg craft beer, including one dedicated gluten-free line, a seasonal cocktail menu and our own Whitstable Gin which is exclusive to The Twelve Taps.

Dogs on leads are welcome, children and under-18s are welcome until 6pm.

We do not take reservations.

We don’t serve food, but we do have a brilliant list of salty snacks. You’re also welcome to order in a pizza, ask us for some recommendations and we’ll be happy to help.

We have a small courtyard garden, which is open all summer and whenever the weather permits.

The Twelve Taps is an inclusive space and any racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia or ableism will not be tolerated. Anyone found to be making other customers or staff feel uncomfortable will be asked to leave.

We will (try) to keep an up-to-date list of draft beers as well as bottles and cans online on our Drinks page and all of our beers are available to take-away.

One last thing…. if you are interested in working at the Taps and you have bar/pub experience and know a bit about craft beer and gin then drop us a line! Email and tell us a bit about yourself and your experience, what your favourite craft beers or gins are, and whether you are looking for full-time or part-time work.
