Won't be disappointed
Aug 2021 • Couples
Went to the tap and barrel last night for the first time with my partner after driving by a few times and thinking it looks nice,.... we wasn't disappointed, the interior was lovely and felt like I was abroad, the ales were lovely felt like a kid in a sweet shop, so many choices but chose the Cam-raa which went down a treat accompanied with a dirty burger and my partner having the dirty dog, was very filling and cooked to perfection, the atmosphere was great and the people and other guests were friendly too, I was surprised to see the venue was dog friendly especially being indoors. We were looked after very well by Lou, dolce and our food was cooked by Rob. Would definitely go again and would recommend to friends and family for something different with a very relaxing vibe. We'll done ✔

A must for anyone looking for good beer and a great atmosphere
Feb 2020
I've visited the "tap" several times with my family and always found it a real little gem. A bit rough and ready - the decor wouldn't win any awards - but that's not the point. A great range of proper beers and ciders served by people who know their ales and with a friendly bunch of customers who make up the regular clientele. Warmly recommended.

A poor showing
Sep 2019
Went with two friends, greeting by female owner poor, not sure why? Only had a Porter and very hoppy ale available, again not sure why. Not very good and did not feel welcome, will give it a miss in future.

Fantastic pub

Looking for a warm inviting place to have a locally brewed beer? Make your way to the Tap and Barrel. There is a wall of choice, be it beer, cider or specialty gin drinks. The owners are Lou and Rob who welcome you with a smile and friendly conversation. They also host comedy nights, open mike's and trivia to name a few things. If we lived near, this would be a local hang out. Nothing quite like a freshly crafted pint at the Tap and Barrel. We can't wait to go back. Cheers!

Micro pub in the heart of Wigston

A refreshing change from other pub options in Wigston - a really varied selection of local ales and ciders, many sourced very locally. Friendly atmosphere and a very rustic feel to this pub.

Just the ticket

Great little ‘pub’. Rough and ready style but well done. Most importantly the beer is great. I love a pint of stout and there have been some delicious examples recently.
They also serve proper cheese and onions rolls. Great with beer.
There is a lovely open and friendly atmosphere and the bar staff are great too.
My new favourite place.
