Having left Wath at 18 I miss the friendliness of the North, this place brings back some great memories of my younger years. Simple but all you need and as a Gin lover couldn't be happier. Simple is often best and this place clearly has...More

Great place, local beers. Staff are friendly and so are the regulars. It's becoming a regular visit every Saturday and I don't see a time in the foreseeable future where I won't be attending.

Wath tap is a breath of fresh air to the area. Anyone who berates the place has either never visited the place or has some kind of personal vendetta. Good atmosphere and a very friendly place. Excellent drinks and reasonable prices.
