Taproom & Booking

Booking a table

Our booking calendar has made it super easy to book a table.

Select the day you want to come to the Church, choose where you want to sit and then pick the time you want to arrive.

Once you’ve done that, you’ll automatically be taken through to a new webpage where you will be asked to add your details and authorise a small deposit to secure your table.

After booking, we’ll keep your information on file and it will be used for track and trace.

Where you can book

It’s great that you’re thinking of booking a table at Docks, but before you do, have a think about where you’d like to sit. Do you want to be outside if the weather is looking good? Do you prefer to be right next to the brewing barrels (we’re cool with that)? Or are you coming as part of a bigger group for a catch up? All together there are four areas where you can book at the Church…

The Taproom (Indoor)

Relax in our taproom that overlooks our 15-barrel brewery. Experience all the sights, sounds, smells and noises you find in a fully active brewery (it’s especially authentic on a brew day!). Small tables, accommodating groups of 1-4 people are available in the taproom from Wednesday through until Sunday.

The Academy

When we reopened after lockdown, we decided to use Docks Academy as a socially distanced drinking space. The Academy has several large tables available and each one can easily accommodate 6 people (4 is the minimum), although the people on each table mustn’t be from more than two households. The Academy is open from Friday through to Sunday and it’s a great opportunity to see the space in all of its glory.

The Taproom (Outdoor)

We also have a number of tables for groups of 1-6 people available outside the taproom – both at the front of the Church and around the side. When the weather is nice, there’s no better place to enjoy a beer (or two) and you’re right next to the street food vendor. But we can’t control the weather and if it’s a bit nippy or the heavens open, we can’t guarantee a table indoors if we’re fully booked… we’ll try our best to though!

The Brewing Area

There are also bench tables in the brewing area, right in the beating heart of our brewery. These are open to groups of 2-4 people and you’ll be so close to the brewing barrels that you’ll almost be able to taste the beer! We open this area on Friday through to Sunday and although it’s inside, it can get a bit drafty. We don’t want to tell you how to dress or anything but it might be an idea to bring a jumper or coat if you’re planning on sitting in the brewing area.

Changes to the taproom

The safety of our customers is our primary concern.

That’s why there are fewer tables available in the taproom and outside than before. We are running at a significantly reduced capacity to make sure we comply with all the current guidance and ultimately keep you safe. We have also implemented a track and trace system – if you book a table in advance of our visit through our online booking calendar, you won’t be asked to share your details again with us.

Docks Academy

We have opened Docks Academy as a socially distanced drinking space. Great idea, right?

Upstairs there’s 12 large tables available and each table can comfortably accommodate a maximum of six people (four is the minimum). All together, we have room for just shy of 100 people in a space that’s designed to hold 300.

What's On

Every weekend, there’s something going on at the Church. From brilliant street food vendors to new beer launches, see what we’ve got coming up next…

    The Docks Shop + Click and Collect

    The Docks Shop is now open from Wednesday to Sunday, 12 noon to 6pm for click and collect online orders made in advance and for walk-ins.

    However, it’s much faster (and safer) if purchases are done online prior to your visit because we’ll have more time to get your order ready for collection.

    Remember to wear your face mask whenever you’re visiting the Docks Shop.

    Covid-19 Frequently Asked Questions

    What changes have you made?

    Docks have a significantly reduced capacity and increase in social distancing, we have implemented increased cleaning protocols, additional staff training, contactless payments and cashless service.

    Are you taking part in Track and Trace?

    Yes we are, If you have booked a table we can pull information from the booking, for walk ins we will capture your details using an online form that can be quickly reached by following a QR code provided upon entry. We store all info in line with GDPR guidelines.

    Why are you charging a deposit?

    Covid has had a huge impact on the hospitality sector, we have had to spread the business across 2 floors meaning more staff (but managing increased social distancing) and a capacity around 1/3 of what it used to be. As an independent business we cannot afford to have tables booked and customers not attend. To support us please only make bookings you wish to honour, if you cannot make your booking please contact us 48hours in advance to cancel or 24 hours before to reschedule, Bookings under 24 hours cannot be cancelled or rescheduled and will be charged.

    I have a booking, can I stay longer than I booked?

    30 minutes before your allocated time slot ends a member of the team will call last orders for your table, If we have spare walk-in tables you can ask to be moved. This is at our discretion.

    Do I need to wear a mask to visit the docks shop?

    In line with government guidelines you must wear a mask when visiting our shop, Without a mask we will be able to serve you from outside but you will not be permitted entrance.

    Finally we ask all our customers to be safe and responsible when on site, please respect social distancing with other customers and our team. We want to create a safe environment that is enjoyable for everyone. Most importantly have fun and welcome back to Docks.
