Alan Winfield left this review about The Tap

When i first visited this pub it was called The Royal Standard.
It used to be an Ansells tied house which had a couple of rooms and plush carptets.
I first went in the new Brewery Tap when it was done up now just called The Tap,but still the same as it was when the Brewery Tap.
Once inside there is now a small room to the right in the apex of the pub that has the main bar,there is pew seats and comfy chairs in this area,there is a larger area to the left which is irregular shaped,there is leather bench seating here and chairs.
The pub is now run by the Derby Brewery company,so lots of their beers on the bar,on my most recent visit i had a drink of DBC Hop Till You Drop,which was a very nice drink,the other real ales noted were DBC Quint Essential,DBC Dashingly Dark,DBC Double Mash,the guest beers were Church End fallen Angel,Taylor Landlord and Backyard Gold.
I have always enjoyed my visits to the Brewery Tap and Tap over the years and it was fairly busy on my early Saturday dinner visit with drinkers.

Royal Standard first visited 1982

Wedge shaped large pub, light, nicely laid out in a modern basic way, brick bar, barrel tables. Nice feel

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

Derby Brewery Tap in a wedge-shaped building with some interesting architectural detailing on the façade. The interior has been remodelled and thoroughly refurbished in a semi-modern style, and had a relaxed atmosphere on a Friday lunchtime. Also has a small patio area. Six of their own real ales on handpump (including On Tap, £3.10) plus guests from Timothy Taylor, Everard's and Titanic and a range of less-usual keg / craft offerings supplemented by a chalkboard list of 55 bottled beers.
