Quinno _ left this review about Cask and Tap

A swift revisit after an unscheduled extended sesh in the 1887. A glorious Plum Porter (NBSS 4.5) and a penultimate-one-out Marble Mild were my choices. I’m a big fan of this place and it’ll probably be my default stop off the tram in future. Excellent pub. 8.5

May 2022
A really neat bar (is really a micropub?) 5 mins from Blackpool North tram and far enough away from the mad crowds to maintain an air of civility, a nice gentle hubbub within. Internally it’s a straightforward oblong room, really well kitted-out with silver and bronze metallic embossed wallpaper on the walls and ceiling. Side benches stretch around the perimeter, all fitted with loads of plugs and charging points. Four cask on over eight pumps, a sensible amount I thought. My Mill Chocolate Orange was good (NBSS 3.5) and I’d have stayed for longer if time wasn’t limited. Well-worth a visit. Rated 8

Old Boots left this review about Cask and Tap

Quite big two story “micro”, one square room downstairs with counter in rear left and stairs to the right, I didn’t venture upstairs. The room is furnished with low matching tables and chairs, old casks as tables and there’s a drinking shelf all round also with tall stools. The main decor is old electronic test equipment converted to lights, although the main lighting is from old or repro factory type lights. There are some of the John Ireland “Making Guinness” cartoons and some Bass cartoon adverts. Metal effect ceiling tiles and wallpaper, nicely done but a little interior designer for a micro. Can’t fault the beer, eight pulls of small brewery beers mostly from Lancs and Yorks, plus a T-Bar of fairly usual stuff , there was Veltins and Tiny Rebel though. Wines and spirits available. GBG 2023.

This micropub is probably the best that Blackpool has to offer at present. The single room is nicely decorated, with the bar at the rear left corner. Toilets are upstairs, apart from a disabled one on the ground floor.

The atmosphere in here was much more civilised than most Blackpool pubs and there is certainly a good selection of real ales, real ciders and craft beers.

4 ales were on for our visit - Beartown Lit & Creme Bearlee, Wye Valley Pride Rock & Butcombe West Coast IPA. Ciders were Heck's Farmhouse Dry, Weston's Old Rosie, Farmer Jim's Farmyard Perry, Thistly Cross Jaggy Thistle, Abrahall's Lily The Pink & Snail's Bank Mango Cider. Craft beers were Tiny Rebel Clwb Tropica, Three Blind Mice Milk Worm, Atom Centroid, Wild Weather Damn Good Strawberry, Goodh Float On, Malt Coast IPA & Stardust Just Stout.

I could quite happily have settled in here for an afternoon session. As it was, I had three, before we moved on to other destinations.
