Sadly this once-proud local boozer continues its decline under yet another new manager. The barmaid at lunchtime today was incompetent, rude and hostile. The management should consider hiring some staff who possess rudimentary service skills and who are less obviously contemptuous of their customers.

After eating we looked for a bar in Hexham to have a few drinks in and found this place. Great beer and the staff were very friendly and service was quick.

New Management has made it's mark, so nice to see a happy face behind the Bar. Great Real Ale and aslo now does a good Toasted Sandwich, I understand that "Geordie Tapas" are soon going to make an appearance. Brilliant background music to !

Another lovely couple of pints in this friendly local pub. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Did not come all this way from London to be offered" London Pride". Should stick to the local micros. They are excellent.

Solid locals pub that offers no nonsense craft as well as the usual beers. No food apart from snacks that I could tell but it's a good place to sample a geographical variety of ale.

Lovely, friendly atmosphere in a traditional pub whose name relates to the bits and pieces of a beer barrel. Comfortable and welcoming and a nice place to have a quick sit down during a Hexham visit.

This pub is my mates local and I'm dead jealous. Good selection of beers and comfy seats. Recently refurbished which has brightened it up a treat without spoiling the atmosphere.

The Tap is a good pub with great locals atmosphere. Good range of real ales but poor on lagers and bottled beers. Good craic. Good Sunday live music.
