Will Larter left this review about Tap & Spile

My visit found the pub with only two beers on among the six hand pumps on the bar, but it had been a "busy weekend" apparently - it was May Day bank holiday and I passed through Hexham on the Tuesday. I had a half of High House Farm Old Hemp, which was in good condition but a bit pricey I thought at £1.80/half. The other beer was Anarchy Urban Assault. This two-roomed corner bar, with entrances at 1 Eastgate and 1 Battle Hill (take your pick) has one side carpeted, the other bare boards. My abiding memory of this pub is the rather tearful interview the landlady was having with a representative of the pubco; I hope everything turned out all right. The Facebook and Twitter activity on behalf of the pub suggests that live music has a strong presence here.
