The second floor is a fantastic live music and club night/dancing venue that doubles as a large private function room.

The Latest

  • Gipsy Hill Tap Takeover

    Gipsy Hill are a super trendy Crystal Palace based brewery with some of the freshest ideas, artwork and beer in the game today.

    From Thursday 10th – Sunday 13th May, this will be a classic TWM tap takeover with 7 lines of Gipsy Hill beer on tap, except this is a particularly exciting one as 5 out of the 7 beers on tap will be their brand new beers, and we will be the first venue in Essex to showcase any of them!

    We have organised this through our beer supplier Eebria, and they have also included a very limited edition beer that they have brewed in collaboration with Gipsy Hill themselves!

    Entry is free all weekend to one of our biggest tap takeovers yet!
