ROB Camra left this review about Tap & Bottles

I'm not sure that this is really a micropub anymore as Al says below. It's quite a large room downstairs and there's another area upstairs along with the toilets. There's a pinball machine and a couple of old arcade games, one of which was getting a lot of use. Pretty busy on our Tuesday late afternoon visit. It's quite difficult to find, especially if you enter the arcade through the wrong entrance. 4 handpumps on the bar with an eclectic range of beers though and the 2 I tried were both in good nick. They also do a 20p per pint CAMRA discount. We'll definitely call in here again.

Is now not very micropubby as its been knocked through to create a larger room to the left of the bar.

A beer bar with a tiny bar on ground level and a seating area upstairs. Serves 4 draught cask ales and about a billion bottled beers. Recommended.

Old Boots left this review about Tap & Bottles

Tucked away inside a market building cum shopping mall it has one tiny room with a smaller one upstairs. L shaped on the ground floor, the counter has four pulls plus numerous "craft" kegs and bottles in abundance. The service was at bit slow but the place was rammed in spite of this and the default "Get Carter" glasses. Upstairs we found a seat under the pipework on old school (literally) tables and forms, we could have sat at a games table and enjoyed pacman and space invader type games as if it was 1982. I can see why it's popular and I'd try it again when it's less busy.
