Duffield Town Street Tap – Official opening
Having had the good taste to use one of my Duffield images for their new ale Duffield Amber, the Town Street Tap Room has now put six of my Derwent Valley images on the wall of its recently-opened micro pub.
Thanks to the Tap Room manager Jamie Traynor for his good taste.
So, I offered to take some photos at their official launch yesterday (Thursday, August 4th).
The Tap Room or Micro Pub is becoming increasingly popular.
As defined in Wikipedia, it’s ‘a small freehouse which listens to its customers, mainly serves cask ales, promotes conversation, shuns all forms of electronic entertainment and dabbles in traditional pub snacks.’
Who wouldn’t love a pub like that?
Like many micro pubs, the Town Street Tap serves beer straight from the cask in an open view cellar.
There is no bar, so when you walk in, you need to gaze up at the choice of beers, and then give your order to one of several staff members, distinguished by their trademark apron.
The Town Street Tap also serves ciders, perries and wines plus snacks.
Here’s a gallery of photos from the launch evening where the ribbon was cut by Derbyshire cricketer Chesney Hughes.
