High Wycombe’s newest pub, the Chiltern Taps with crafted beer and food, live music, and sport, opened last Friday 11th August with the town’s mayor on hand to pull the first pint.
It’s name joining in the local heritage, Oxford Road’s £430,000 investment and fifteen new jobs, has brought huge excitement to the town since it was announced earlier in July.
Appealing to the modern-day pub goer, the individual design has created a diverse two bar pub across two storeys, with pool and high energy upstairs, and quirky industrialised design downstairs complete with sports screens, neon lit craft beer wall and tell-tale signs of the pub’s ethos telling customers to ‘party like you’re a robot in 1984’.
The opening iwas spectacular with VIPs treated to fizz, adventurous craft beer, hand-stretched pizzas, signature tapas, and gin tasting. Live music with The Fantastic Elastic Band was followed by DJ Ash whilst befittingly, sports fans celebrated as the Premiership kicked off with Arsenal vs Leicester airing through the eleven screens and big screen.
An exciting partnership has also been announced between The Familiar Funk Show, moving from Wycombe Sound, and the Chiltern Taps from where the live show will now be presented 10pm-midnight every Saturday. Funky Uplifting Disco Reworks, and Stirring Ibiza Sounds, bringing sophisticated Saturdays to Wycombe.Live music and open mic nights will also play a huge part in the pub’s offer.
“There is nothing like us in Wycombe. We’re all about what’s on trend, working with the diverse population to deliver to the town’s needs,” said manager Steph Bellhouse.
