Good Beer Guide 2020 Entry.

Impressive town house - looks like it should have been a solicitors. Some patio tables out the front and then a big room to the left with a bar tuckes away at the far end.

TV on with sports on low volume.

Tables were cordoned off with black and yellow tape but still felt rather close together.

Four ales - detailed on a chalk board and my Pavilion Pale Ale from Bank Top Brewery was in fine condition.

The Black Tap is a bit of a gem in my opinion. Good selection of drinks with Ossett Ernest, Lacons Legacy, Backyard Blonde and Fixed Wheel Black Cyclone. Also a good selection of ciders, lagers and spirits if that's your thing. We tried all 4 ales and they were all excellent. Add that to a nice open fire and friendly service and you'll struggle to find a better pub in Redditch. Well worth a visit.

The Black Tap is situated in a nice part of Redditch in an old and nice looking building.
Once inside there is a small oblong shaped room to the left which is bare boarded,the bar is in this room and to the rear,the seating is normal tables and chairs and one tall table and stools,there is a drinking shelf to the right with tall stools.
There is a separate room to the right which has a darts board in it.
There were four real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Black Tap Flower Power,which went down well,the other real ales noted were Black Tap Morning Glory,Black Tap Not Lager a d a beer called Lord Nelson.
This is not really my sort of pub,but the drink i had was nice.
