“Try imagining a place where it’s always safe and warm. Come in she said, I’ll give ya shelter from the storm.” Bob Dylan

The Tap and Barrel is a public house just a hop and a skip from the old market place in the historic town of Pontefract, Yorkshire.

We love good beers, wines, spirits, music and culture and we welcome folk with something to say from wherever they come from.

We subscribe to the old maxim “Think Global, Act Local” and offer a wide range of good beers sourced from breweries just a few miles down the road to fine beverages from farther afield..

The atmosphere is unique, timeless and designed to speak to our customers through all five senses – from the sound of vinyl, to the smell of good incense and

woodsmoke, from the beat generation posters on our walls to the fresh flowers on our tables, the tasty beers and wines and of course a space to sit, stand, chill, converse and enjoy the company of friends old and new.

We believe in tradition as well as vision and the pub as a focal point for community and family. We love history and at the same time embrace what’s coming next.

And, finally, we’d just to say that we are so proud of our pub and the team that work so hard to make it all happen.

Hope to see you soon.

The best pub in the world is the one that you like best. You can decide that for yourself of course. But if we might assist … Tap’in X
