Will Larter left this review about Tamworth Tap

An early evening visit between trains on my way home from Stafford, and as it turned out my train was 10 minutes late so I could have stayed for another half. It was quite busy and I didn't have the opportunity to look around. The bar counter felt a little cramped, with eight hand pumps serving a wide variety of beer styles from mostly well-established independent breweries (Thornbridge, Oakham, Chalk Hill, Twickenham, Beowulf, Uley), plus the never-heard-of Bang the Elephant (from Langley Mill) and just one beer from the premises behind the bar. I went for Tamworth Ale, not realising that it was actually a murky grapefruit pale and not to my taste at all - the first time I have not finished a beer for a very long time. I swerved the beer from Langley Mill (an "alpine snow strawberry pale stout" which I presumed would live up to the brewery's slogan "Subvert the Stereotype", but wasn't prepared to invest the time or money to find out) and went for Uley Harvest Special, a bitter made with fresh hops, and this one went down a treat.

As I said, it was busy here with what I took to be a post-work crowd of mainly younger people, but I found myself a seat near the front window and within beneficial distance of the stove and had a little chat with two men of not quite my age who were drinking the Twickenham Yakima Valley ABA (an American brown ale) which they said was very good. As has been mentioned previously, Tamworth is coming up in the world in terms of pubs and beers for the discerning consumer, and I will certainly be back before long.

Home to both Tamworth Brewing and a superb shop conversion to an atmospheric boozer,this visit was a revelation.So much thought has been given to the pub fit out,there is a wall of Belgian metal beer adverts to the left,a small seperate craft keg servery,a newly installed wood burner kicking out good heat,traditional pew seating at the front,small tables and chairs near the side facing real ale bar ,while nooks and crannies have been created around the staircase to the first floor room.The beer garden giving views of the castle looked a very classy place.
All 8 handpumps operational on a Wednesday evening with a regular two decicated to Tamworth output which on my trip meant their Tamworth Ale (NBSS 3.5) and Whopper (a 6.5% IPA described as outstanding by my beer campanion). The rotating guests were Oakham Citra,Broad Town Brewery BTB Fettlers Finest,Bristol Beer Factory Milk Stout (NBSS 4.5),Front Row Brewing Rucked,Crafty Brewing Crafty 1 and Wilde Child Obsidian Phantom (NBSS 3.5).That's a great line up of differing styles and strengths and pleasing to see several high ABV options so often lacking in real ale havens.
Although I love the intimacy of the Kings Ditch,their limited opening hours hand The Tamworth Tap the award on the best real ale venue in Tamworth IMHO.The owners is an engaging fellow and he has created a fantastic outlet.Has to be full marks from me,and a must visit.

Easily the best of the three visited in Tamworth. You need to have a mooch around. There's an upstairs and a large outside patio in the shadow of the castle.

The landlady is super friendly.

Good choice of ales, as well as the Tamworth Brewing own range. Not often you see a Three Tuns Stout, Bathams and Sarah Hughes dark ruby competing for your £3.50.

Predictably, I had the bathams. Wonderful condition.
