Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Stonewell Tap

Marketing itself as a craft beer bar, this had ten of a possible 16 keg taps on the bar-back in use, offering a very good selection of styles. Real ale is also available from a total of five handpumps, although one of the clips visible in the late afternoon had vanished by the time of my mid-evening visit. However, this left the Golden Plover from Allendale Brewery (£3.80) which proved a good pint. Apart from that, the place features a split-level layout created from two adjoining buildings, with both parts featuring semi-modern furniture and decor.

Will Larter left this review about The Stonewell Tap

This was the White Horse when I first went in, around 1974, but was then the Stonewell Tavern for a long time and now the Tap. The recent change has also seen a change of emphasis - it was a lunchtime and post-work food and cask beer pub for many years, but now it's craft keg and live bands. There are five hand pumps, but only two beers on midweek, up to four at the weekend. The keg offering is more numerous, with 16 taps, and I went for the Farmyard Impish or Admirable? imperial stout 11%, and yes the question mark is part of the name. Very nice, even more-ish (moreish?) - and only £2.40 for a third. I noted an appearance a few days later by the Intensely Staring Cats - their poster was appropriately illustrated. (Note that weekday opening is 5pm.)

first visit since it got rebranded and restyled inside. it's nicely done and a pleasant place to drink but too quirky for me with sofas and uncomfortable shabby chairs and tables taking up too much space. an improvement on the old place though and the old regulars still seem to be coming in.
