    The Perfect Pint EVERY time
    Friday tea time visit to The Brewery Tap. Place was buzzing, great atmosphere locals of all ages just chatting and relaxing. Couples , small groups of guys and girls relaxing. Blackedge brew a range of beers that are exceptional in taste and body . Always a choice of 7pumps on the Bar, plus at least 4 Ciders . A choice of 10 craft keg beers all looked after and served by Kyle and Lauren. Who go above and beyond to make sure each drink is "spot on ". The place is kept spotless at all times , as soon as folk leave their seating area cleaned and glasses removed ready for the next person. There is a upstairs seating area ,normally not as "noisy" . If you are in the area , and fancy a pint with a warm welcome call in , you will not be disappointed.

    Real beer, real service
    Little brother of the Horwich-based Blackedge brewery, the tap serves a wide selection of local beers alongside the Blackedge staples, then there’s all the ciders and spirits too. The team there know their stuff and the customer service is always excellent. Coupled with some great live music acts on a Sunday and monthly open mic, the Brewery tap is an absolute must vist

    All bars should be like this
    I will be honest this is one of my usual haunts . But this bar continues to set the standard all pubs and bars should set to achieve. The place is spotless, the staff are a credit to themselves and Blackedge Brewery. The beers are 100% spot on , regardless of being Craft , Keg or Cider. If you find yourself in Westhoughton call in.

Without a doubt the most welcoming bar on Market Street Westhoughton.
The most consistent keg and craft beers I have ever had the pleasure of drinking. Above 8/10 every time .An amazing selection of Blackedge Beers to suit every palate Not to mention a great selection of traditional Ciders and Gins .
The staff are all a credit to themselves and Blackedge Brewery, totally professional,knowledgeable and very welcoming.
As well as the street level bar area there is a spacious upstairs room that is generally quieter but busy , this is also available for private hire.
The whole building is spotlessly clean , empty glasses immediately removed plus tables cleaned as soon as they are vacated. There are also live music nights featuring excellent local musicians along with an very popular open mike evening.
If you get the munchies pork pies at the bar ( wiv mustard).
The Brewery Tap is a great place for couples, small groups and solo drinkers . I highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

One of my favourite local breweries is black edge so it was great to find this place in the centre of Westhoughton. It is an outlet for their beers and is a really great place to visit.

It has a really relaxed atmosphere to it and the staff are superb. They seem very proud of the beers and they’re more than happy to let you sample them to find one you like.

The beers are delicious and no wonder the bar is popular. If you’re on the High Street and looking for a place to enjoy a beer or two I would highly recommend here.

Best beer for miles around. Perfect real ale. If you like blonde IPA this is the place to come. Smart & clean establishment. Kyle & the lads pour the best pint this side of the main brewery in Horwich

I have been frequenting this bar since it first opened, unfortunately like everything else it had to close .
Now back open , with still an amazing range of beers and ciders .
The beers are straight from Blackedge Brewery and are a delight to the palette, what ever you have.
The staff go above and beyond to make sure every visitor is totally satisfied.
Occasionally live music is on and this just adds to the experience.
If you are passing call in .
Note - not open Mon or Tues
