Rob Hunter left this review about Tap 'n' Barrel

Visited mid-week in the afternoon. Six hand pulls at the bar, with three offering cask ales and the other three offering ciders. A premium keg selection was also noted, but nothing too crafty. At the time of my visit the cask ales were Phoenix Hopsack, Settle Jericho and Hawkshead Windermere Pale.

Inside there are a few tables and stools in the bar area, picnic tables to the front outside, and a further half indoors half outdoors room to the rear with additional seating. Upstairs are the gents toilets and a further seating area.

Service was friendly and I wouldn't mind paying another visit.

this micropub is no longer associated with Martland Mill, who I believe have ceased trading. The ales today were from Hawshead, Coach House and Phoenix. it’s still a characterful micro pub on a quaint cobbled street with a bar, upstairs and greenhouse style area and service is very friendly.

Tucked away down a shopping arcade,this brick building has an attractive curved frontage ,yet has a stripped out feel both on the ground floor but more particularly on the first floor,which just has some high stools and a drinking shelf.This is the tap for Martland Mill brewery and the 6 handpumps were drawing their D Day Dodger,Ancient & Loyal,Spinners Gold,Lancashire Loom and Wobbly Weaver with no sign of any guest beers.
If you like Martland Mill brews you may like this micro,but our verdict was that their malty,hop lite ales were not to our taste.Cheap but maybe for a reason,this micro lacked atmosphere and customers.
