Upminster’s first Micropub


Havering’s first micropub was given the go ahead today. Upminster Tap Room, a small building in Sunnyside Gardens near the junction with St Mary’s Lane, will offer a selection of local ales and bar snacks.

During a licensing meeting at Havering Town Hall, co-owner Caroline Sheldon told councillors the venue will be built on a mix of “good ale and conversation. There’s no TV, music or electronic devices,” she said. “It’s a community thing where people can chat.”

Licensing hours of 11am-11pm were approved despite objections from residents in Sunnyside Gardens who argued it would cause a public nuisance.
Neighbours feared noise and safety issues would be caused by the 60-capacity venue.

The opening day is pencilled in for the end of May.
