This is a proper pub with steps up the the bar situated on the left side with a small snug area infront of the window.There is a large pillar which seperated part of the bar from the right side which has flatscreens,a mix of well worn furniture and a sports bar feel.There is a decent darts throw infront of the window.
The 4T's brewery will always have produce on the bar,both their IPA and Geronimo featured on my trip.There will also be up to 6 guests ales and my Marble Manchester Bitter was on very fine form.
I enjoyed my evening here,the ale quality was sufficiently good to make this the first and last stop in Warrington.Friendly and helpful locals,the barman was also very engaging.A must visit if crawling around town.

I like The Tavern. It's a curious mix of sports bar and real ale pub. At the time of my visit all eight hand pumps were on, though only two were offering ales from 4T's (Espresso Stout and Tropical Trial). Other options were Nethergate GB Bitter, Totally Brewed Papa Jangles Voodoo Stout, Poynton Hoppy Daze, Tollgate Ashby Pale, Listers IPA and finally Raw Edge American Pale Ale. All around the £3 a pint mark. There was a small crowd round the bar at the time of my weekday visit. The beer was pulled through before being served, which was nice to see. I had both the stouts and they were in great condition (the 4T's Espresso Stout was exceptional). Bottles also available for sale. Definitely one not to miss.

To paraphrase Mike Skinner, I wholeheartedly agree with Malden man's viewpoint. This doesn't look like much from the outside, but the ale variety makes this a must-visit if you're in the Warrington Central vicinity and knocks the next-door Bulls Head into a cocked hat. The interior is superbly described by previous interlocutors below, and a Tuesday night ale selection consisted of 4T's IPA, Tipsy Angel Angel Gold, Isle of Purbeck Fossil Fuel and Phoenix White Monk, all in tip-top condition. Only 4T's Stout let the side down with its slightly vinegary aftertaste (unlikely pulled through before opening time on the hottest day of 2016 - but then again, who's likely to drink stout in that kind of weather?) I also took a shine to the 'Caffrey's Count Down Yr 2000' clock.
