gástrō pùb noun Brit. a British term for a public house that specializes in serving high-quality food, beer and wine.
ORIGIN 1990s: blend of gastronomy and pub.
The gastropub movement started in the early 90’s in London, England. The idea of taking an existing pub, injecting a gourmet chef, and elevating the experience for its patrons crossed the pond and has been permeating this country for a few years now.
Taste is the first gastropub in Olney and our mission is to provide high quality, freshly prepared food at reasonable prices, maintaining purveyors of local or organic produce, sustainable seafood, and humanely raised meat and poultry as often as possible.
Taste Gastropub also goes further to provide a unique selection of beer, wine, and cocktails to enjoy alongside the food.
We strive to make available beers that are reserved or highly allocated for only the most serious beer-centric restaurants and pubs. Annual releases, brewery collaborations, and just plain hard to find beers somehow find their way into Taste's cold storage space within our little corner of Olney.
Taste Gastropub carries a vast selection of wines by the glass and by the bottle. Boutique wineries are sought out, to give the guests a chance to indulge in something they may have never tried before. While you may recognize a few wineries by name, you will notice even more that you’ve probably never heard of. The team at Taste Gastropub has painstakingly gone through many wine tastings to find these gems.
On the cocktail side, we have many unique offerings as well. Recipes developed by Taste’s own, grace the bartop throughout the evening to create delicious cocktails in order to help elevate your experience.
