Live music with James Taplin
The Local began life as The Deli Badger in 2015. Laura and Paul Local took ownership of the bar in December 2018 and are keen to establish this as a true craft beer destination, a great gin bar, which also serves great food.
The Local is one of the only out of town venues serving all craft beers. It also has a selection of almost 50 gins, and a good selection of fine wines. There is an ever growing selection of canned and bottled beers, which are all available for off-premises, with 15% off all takeaway beers.
Four of the eight taps permanently serve award winning Bavarian ABK beers which include pilsners, dark beers and a wheat beer. The remaining four taps rotate constantly. The Local sometimes hosts ‘tap takeovers’ by brewers like Brewdog, but more often, they support local, independent breweries.
Laura and Paul have a background in Mexican catering, and all food is made by them from scratch using good quality ingredients. There is still a ‘leaning towards’ Mexican food, though their casual dining includes dishes from Spain, India and offers weekly specials. The menu is very much sharing food and small plates, with an emphasis on relaxed food. Tea and freshly ground coffees available all day.
