Visited on Saturday evening. We had booked a table, as is advised, though they do have limited space for walk-ups. However, it's a bit out of the way to walk up and take that chance. As it happened we were half an hour early for our booking and the chap on the door was very accommodating and managed to fit us in. I assume they must have removed a few tables for social distancing purposes but it doesn't really look much different to how it did on my previous visit. You can scan a QR code at the table to view the beer menu and place your order, but if you struggle you can place the order with a human being. Service was efficient, not just from speed of beer delivery to the table after ordering, but also in terms of collecting empty glasses and cleaning tables after customers had left. Complimentary water was provided. Overall a good experience with beer to match, the only downside being they seem to have stopped offering the weekly cask beer and it's now all keg - but there is certainly plenty of choice both from Cloudwater and guest breweries.

Further to my previous review, I revisited on Saturday evening and it is pretty much the same as before with the exception that there is a single cask ale available in the downstairs merchandise room. This can either be consumed down there (so long as you are seated) or brought up to the main bar.

This cask ale is put on fresh on a Friday and is available until it runs out. On Saturday this was "What Do The Numbers Say?" which was a 3.8% pale ale and for the rather reasonable price of £3.50 a pint (or was it £3.80?).

Currently Track have a pop-up bar in the downstairs room, although this is believed to be temporary.

This wasn't quite as drab and bland as I was expecting from ROB Camra's description, so either they have spruced the place up a bit or perhaps it looked worse for being empty on his visit. No such issue last night when we went, it was fairly busy but we were able to get a seat, this being a Saturday evening just before 7pm.

Indeed no cask here, which is strange as Cloudwater do brew cask beers and the tap room is open regularly enough that turnover should not be an issue. I counted 20 taps behind the bar.

It does lack the cosiness of the old brewery tap at the barrel store but at the end of the day this is an industrial unit I suppose. It was OK. Would I consider it worth the walk just to come here? Probably not. Would I come back if was in the area? Quite possibly.
