Alan Winfield left this review about The Tap & Barrel

The Tap and Barrel is situated on the edge of Ponefracts shopping area.
The pub is now painted in the crap modern battleship grey,so i should have expected what was to come once inside.
The pub has a single oblongish shaped room with the bar facing,there is some bench seating and normal tables and chairs to the left,the right side is bare boarded and has tall tables and chairs and some high backed bench seating.
There are two real ales on the bar and a few craft crap beers,the pub is now operating as an Artisan Tap house,which gives it the right to over charge for the area.
I asked for a half of GK IPA to be told we dont do halfs anymore,i replied a half pint is an English imperial measurement for beer so why dont you do it,to be told 2/3 of a pint is the new measurement,so i had to go with it,i was gob smacked when i was asked for £2.11 for the crap 2/3 of a pint of GK IPA,i commented that most other pubs in town were serving beer at a £1.00 cheaper,the other beer was Pedigree.
There was some decent background music playing to an empty room apart from my self.
The bar staff or landlord and landlady sat behind a screen to the rear left watching a GK video about how to run a pub properly.
All other pubs in town were buzzing on my Wednesday dinner visit,this one was empty,i think that tells a story.

This pub has been in the GBG numerous times previously. There are three regular cask ales on here, none of which have changed in the last few years but are always of good quality. John Smith’s Cask, Timothy Taylor’s Landlord and Theakston’s Old Peculier are the beers on sale here, my personal favourite being the latter. The pub is located just outside the main stretch in the town, almost opposite the other end of the Tesco’s superstore. There are darts, a pool table and a big screen in this pub. A regular live Rugby League match is shown in here every Friday night, and live Leeds United games are frequently shown.
