This is like a pub of 2 halves.

You have your standard mix of regulars that filter in and out throughout the day probably moving between there and the Kings Head, and possibly a ‘cheap’ one in the George too. But of a weekend it’s a different story… one of which I will shortly get to.

It’s a great place to watch the football, it doesn’t matter where you stand you will always be able to see a screen. There are lots of drink offers too, so this place really doesn’t break the bank at all.

From what I’ve heard it was this place that initially made Thursday the new Friday, and so weekends probably start here. The service is always quick and efficient, and they do a commendable job on weekends as you simply cannot move at the bar.

So, weekends… It always starts off soo well, but then the dickhead count just gets too high! It almost feels that you aren’t allowed to enjoy this place if you’re still sober. I do like it, but I just wish it wasn’t such a meat market, filled with amateur drinkers screaming ‘let’s do shots’ ‘you want a shot babe’ as they attempt to paw at you. ‘Not interested’ seems to be a phrase that a lot of these guys aren’t quite familiar with… they should stick with the bimbos that are also in ample supply. But I guess this is unavoidable as the one thing lacking in Enfield is a variety of decent pubs, and in particular late night pubs.

People go to get drunk and have fun. There is nothing wrong with that, but it does get to the point where you can barely move through the narrow bar. But as I said, I do like this place, but it does feel a little bitter/sweet at times when I consider this place.

Fine place for a quiet, darkened drink during the early part of the day. The addition of a pool table at the end of the narrow room would be fantastic. You can put it away when it gets mental at the weekends. Oh, and is the image of the pub on this website really the best one available ?

I hope that what I will mention here to all the public that have access to this website and more important to TAPS BAR, Pub in Enfield will be seriously considered.
I was deeply offended by the owner and staff from the Taps Bar in Enfield. I was dancing one Saturday night with few friends when we were asked to leave the pub. The worse thing was that we were asked to leave because couple of girl�s didn�t like us being there for some jealousy reasons. The girls reported to the manager that we smelled and having no ground at all to ask us to leave we were chucked out of the pub.

We felt sick, angry and demoralised but even more humiliated for their action and their behaviour towards us. Of course we went to the police station but there was nothing the police could do about it. Now, how ridicules can that be!. We were so disheartened and disgusted with the manager attitude that it took few days to get over it.

For Christ sake, it wasn�t about �smell� TAPS BAR on Saturday I full of people dancing, sweating, farting, sticky and smelly, it is a BAR for goodness sake! Everyone should be asked to leave if it is case. They are just NASTY there.

We will not return ever again to that place. If anyone has any suggestion to take this further, please don�t hesitate to leave your comment. It happened to us and I can guarantee you it will happen to you too.

There's a sign on the door here which says strictly over 25. I can only assume it's an in-joke by the owner as every weekend it's filled with kids looking for the latest close in town.

During the day it's a great pub only rivalled by the Kings Head in the market square I would say. A Lovely interior with many lagers on tap and a perfectly poured Guinness every time. Lots of flat screens dotted around the pub mean you�re unlikely to miss the latest goings on in the world of sport whilst you�re sat at one of the many tables available.

They let themselves down, however, by what happens at the weekends. They take away the stools from the tables, I suppose to allow more standing space, but it just means you can�t sit around a table in there with your friends. It ruins the atmosphere for people and I think it�s why people don�t turn up until later on. Taking the stools away from the bar works well and makes sense, but I feel the stools at the tables is a step too far.

On weekend nights there also seems to be an aggressive atmosphere fuelled by little boys acting like imbecilic wannabe tough guys, with their platinum blonde bimbo girlfriends in tow loving the 'drama'.

Awight babe? Yeeeeeaaah. Cushdy.

Also, I realise pubs as a rule are struggling, so I accept that money is king, but I just wish they would stop letting in so many people as there�s no space to move at all.

I would and do recommend this pub to friends, but as always there are improvements to be made. 6/10.
