Nice friendly modern bar, nicely refurbed with hidden back room. Good beer and service

Will Larter left this review about Brecon Tap

A large, deep shop conversion with an impressive array of bottled beers from local breweries on the shelves to the left. Further back is the bar counter, on a slightly raised level. There are tables and chairs throughout, in different styles for front, middle and rear parts of the available space. Toilets are labelled in Welsh but with recognisable conventional signs for those who don't know their dynion from their merched.

On the bar are six hand pumps and numerous keg taps are on the bar back. I had Brecon Dark Beacons on my first visit here, and wasn't terribly impressed; the next day I was back and tried the same brewery's Three Beacons, which was much better. Beers from other breweries are also available, plus real cider (see photos). Food, specifically pies, is also available. I liked it here and would return for the occasional beer in draught or bottle, but it's not really a place for stopping long unless you're eating.

The Brecon Tap is set in a former cafe and although it doesn't bill itself as a micropub has all the qualities of one especially compared to many of the ones found in the Teesside area. The main exception is that they do a simple hot food option mainly pie based.
Inside it's a long narrow split level room with shelving containing bottles of beer from Brecon and other breweries on the left and the bar on the left at the front of the higher level. There is a wooden floor and mostly low tables and chairs. Past the bar is further seating and a small dog leg at the back which has a fire escape to the next street. Also at the rear are two sets of toilets. I looked for a television but couldn't find one and there was no music or fruit machines. There were only a few in on my early Wednesday evening visit all sitting on stools at the bar.
The small bar has six hand pumps and a small selection of spirits but no optics. I assume there must also have been some wines and soft drinks. There is a set of keg taps at the back where I couldn't see what was on.
The six hand pumps had one unused, Brecon Copper Beacons, Red Beacons & Lovely Tackle, Alechemy Five Sisters and Arran Dark. I tried the Copper Beacons (£3.30), Red Beacons (£3.30) and Five sisters (£3.50) all of which were in excellent condition. I liked this place and would definitely return.
