The Anchor Tap
16 East Street, Horsham, RH12 1HL · Telephone 01403 274542
The Anchor Tap is the only Dark Star pub in Horsham. It's a small pub but perfectly formed. The pub was previously a coffee shop and it was completely refurbished with new bar, flooring, and beer board amongst the additions. The pub opened in early 2016. It's a fantastic addition to the town's pubs.
Update 2019: The pub is now part of a company that is managed separately from the Dark Star brewery.
There are six beers on hand pump and ten keg beers. Dark Star beers are featured but are by no means the only choice. There are usually at least eight or nine beers from other breweries, including other Sussex breweries .... and a well-stocked refrigerator with some unusual bottled ales.
The pub serves a range of bar snacks like toasted sandwiches and sausage rolls but this is a drinking pub and there isn't any dining. Plenty of restaurants nearby though.
The pub is open from midday most days but closed on Mondays.
