Old Boots left this review about The Tap House

The tap for Hartlebury Brewery which is next door, both are in ex-railway buildings which is convenient for trains on the Worcester to Birmingham line, one per hour stop here. It’s the old station so it’s long and thin retaining some of the old dividing walls in stripped brick, the brick and wood servery is between the two furthest left rooms, pulls and taps to the left. There are two banks of four pulls with a selection of their own beers and local guests from Holdens and Wye Valley. Furnished traditionally with a mix of upholstered settles and taller tables with stools, with shorter tables and chairs to the extreme left. Decor as expected of railway porn but not exclusively, there’s a great deal of honey coloured wood been used. The far right end is a restaurant and there’s a shelter and marquee opposite the main building. The bit between the bar and restaurant is labelled The Waiting Room and has the toilet access, the restaurant is the Dining Carriage.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Tap House

A decent Station Tap this one, with a good sized lounge area and bar on the left of entrance and a restaurant area on the right. There's also a covered marquee area out the back. The interior was traditional in style with a decent sized oak bar area, hosting a choice of seven cask ales HPA, Town Crier and Butty Bach. The Hartlebury beers were APA, Bitter Strikes Back, Off the Rails and Hartlebury Hooker. We enjoyed the Hartlebury beers and found the prices to be reasonable. The place also had a good pub atmosphere with lots of people supping away.

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

Formerly the Old Ticket Office, which is - just as the former name says - housed in a fine old railway building, but also - as the new name suggests - home to the adjoining Hartlebury Brewing Co. The entrance is now on the car park side, and this leads to the bar on the left and restaurant to the right, with both parts further partly sub-divided and refurbished in an unexpectedly light, semi-modern style. With two banks of four handpumps on the 'L'-shaped counter, I found their own Off the Rails, Hartlebury Hooker, Old Rusty and APA (£3.00) plus the local(ish) Butty Bach, HPA, Town Crier and Enville as guests.
