Lovely refurb went there on Friday at 3pm asked if they had a lunch menu, the reply was they only do pies so we bought a round of drinks asked for the pies of the day only to be told there were no pies and was offered a choice of 3 flavours of crisps...... so our question of the day... More

The tap bar now called the brewery tap has had an excellent refurb! Specialising in cider ales and pies, had a lovely evening there, the refurb is lovely (love the wall of pennies) met the new owners and got a sneak preview tour of the cellar bar and it's stunning. As a cider lover I was in my element with... More

Would not recommend this accommodation to anyone. Hall stairs and landing area very run down and dirty, kitchen is between rooms so very noisy until kitchen closed. Room was the worst I have stayed in with grubby carpet and stained shower room floor. Uninviting dark sheets and towels topped it all off, if I hadnt drunk so much before seeing... More

family stayed for our wedding 10 years ago and we didnt have any problems then so booked for 2 visits recently, paid in full, tried to cancel after reading reviews but was told the full money was classed as deposit, so had no choice but to stay. I have stayed in many hotels b&b's over the years but nothing as... More

I had read the reviews before I stayed here and was apprehensive but it's not that bad! It definitely could do with upgrading and would benefit from a coat of paint and fresh looking bedding but it wasn't dirty as such and the rooms were a great size and well equipped. Location was perfect for what I needed and felt... More

I was there recently with a group of walkers. We had our own area and the service, from a girl from the Baltic, was excellent - friendly and efficient. I can only assume there had been a change of management as it was nothing like the dire recent reviews. The menu offered a decent choice and between us we tried... More

We live near this bar and used to drink and eat there regularly, however over the last year it has gone severally down hill. I used to come in regularly with my son but the attitude of the female staff is appalling. On four visits we had to put up with a female member of staff moaning consistently to us... More

The owner of the Tap Bar obviously does not read the reviews otherwise they would have got rid of the manageress long ago. Went in yesterday about 12.30 for lunch before the carnival and the manageress was her usual rude self. No menus on the tables yet she insisted there was. We placed an order, then horror of horrors we... More

Had light lunch here on day of Ware Carnival. Food average, nothing special and lady serving behind the bar, presumably the manager, rude and very offhand. Not welcoming at all and probably wont return.

I recently went to the tap bar on a first date, and let's just say it wasn't just the company I was disappointed with. Firstly the place was almost empty but the waitress behind the bar seemed stressed and preoccupied with chatting to her friend at the bar. We ordered food and had to pay upfront, which I always disagree... More
