Travellers talk about
The Tap & Tonic, said to be Grantham and Lincolnshire's first Speakeasy & cocktail bar, is a venue unique to the area. In true Speakeasy bar style it is secretly located behind The Trickling Tap in an old restored Victorian outbuilding.

We decided to try this little place out after many recommendations, you are spoilt for choice on the different cocktails there's something for everyone. We said we'd definitely go back on a 2-4-1 night, I'd advise booking as this place is very cosy.

Good service but drinks and prices very overrated. Not even sure if alcohol was put in any of the cocktails. Very watered down versions were received. Waitress spilt a drink over one of our guests and no offer of a free drink was made until...More

What can I say about this place other than it is amazing. The list of cocktails goes on and on and there is far to many to choose in one evening. I would recommend booking well in advance and, if your making a romantic night...More
