Will Larter left this review about The Petersgate Tap

One of two Stockport pubs converted from betting shops (the other being the Wellington opposite the railway station) and recently changed to opening at 12 noon six days a week (closed Monday). This one has been open for a few years now and has won a number of Camra awards, including three in 2023 - branch pub of year, plus cider pub of the year and a special mild magic award. There was a mild on today, but at 5.8% I didn't fancy it for my first beer of the day just after noon. My pint of RedWillow Headless Olicana 3.8% was very good (NBSS 4). There are six hand pumps, with four out of six beers being 5% abv or higher, which limits my options if on a crawl; if living locally I would consider it a plus, but a £17:15 day return on the train doesn't make me a local, unfortunately.

A worthy shop conversion with a mix of cask and KeyKeg, plus some ciders on offer - quite a fair selection and reasonably priced. It did not seem as friendly as some of the other bars in the area, but perhaps this was because it already had more customers than most. A shame it is an afternoon opener but well worth dropping in if it is open.

During a recent Tuesday afternoon visit the six handpumps on the bar at Petersgate Tap were drawing Thornbridge Carlota, Abbeydale Hopback, Lancaster Centennial, Tom’s Tap Dark Mild, Wily Fox Karma Citra and Small World Long Moor. The bar also supports four keg fonts which were pouring three craft beers and Budvar. I went for half a Long Moor Pale which was £1.75 for a half. Large chalkboards either side of the bar counter in the left rear corner list the aforementioned draught along with a range of gins from the back bar and ciders from the fridge. The bar faces tables that run up the right hand wall and there are another couple of tables next to the entrance, where there is a flight of stairs that lead up to an advertised bottle shop. There is some beery paraphernalia up on the walls and behind the bar are many framed certificates for POTY awards.
I found the service to be very friendly and it was nice sitting there listening to some Stockport County chat as I’ve witnessed some very poor football between them and Brentford down at the old Griffin Park over the years. I liked this bar and will definitely pop back in next time I’m in Stockport.
