To all our loyal customers please read this
The Tap ‘n’ Barrel will be remaining open and will continue to do so for as long as we possibly can. Any changes in circumstances will be updated accordingly.
We are a small business and need to keep trading in order to pay our staff, rent and other overheads.
As a result however of the difficult events we are experiencing we have decided to take the step of cancelling all of our live music events for the immediate future
In light of the current circumstances staff have been briefed on how to maintain the best standard of health and safety while serving you our customers.
We value and appreciate all our customers and take your health and well being seriously, and whilst we really want you to continue to enjoy a drink with us, if you are experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms please do not come onto the premises.
Thanks once again for your support.
The Tap ‘n’ Barrel Team.
Wigan’s only dedicated Real Ale & Cider Bar.
The Tap ‘N’ Barrel is a micropub and brewery tap located in the Wigan Town Centre, specialising in real ales brewed at Martland Mill Brewery and real ciders and perries from around the country.
The Tap ‘n’ Barrel was the only logical next step for husband and wife team Paul and Delia Wood. Having established Martland Mill Brewery in 2014, which became an instant success, a brewery tap was the next big idea.
Here at the Tap ‘n’ Barrel we pride ourselves on serving great beers direct from our own brewery and from other micro-breweries both local and further afield. Our focus is promoting Real Ale, whilst also striving to create an atmosphere that promotes good conversation, with good company and a real good time.
The Tap ‘n’ Barrel is fast becoming recognised as a true haven for connoisseurs of well-kept Real Ale and Cider. We are pleased to be considered by our patrons to be a relaxing welcoming environment, with friendly and knowledgeable staff, who are happy to help and advise you on your drinks choice. At any one time you will find six LocAle and Cask Marque accredited Real Ales, also available on the bar are up to six still ciders, continental draft lager, craft and fruit beers, and an excellent array of wine; prosecco and a wide selection of spirits, featuring specialist gins and vodkas. We also offer a good selection of snacks, crisps; nuts, pork scratching and pork pies. There truly is something to suit all tastes.
The bar takes on a whole new lease of life on Sunday afternoon when in the undercover beer garden we play host to different artists playing music from a variety different styles.
With such an inviting and relaxing atmosphere, the Tap ‘n’ Barrel is fast becoming a popular bar in Wigan town centre. This has been topped off by the addition of a rear, enclosed, undercover heated ‘Beer Garden’. An unexpected pleasure in an unusual location
We look forward to you joining us for a pint and a chat.
Paul, Delia and the Tap ‘n’ Barrel Team.

Top venue; top staff! ‘Never been to a micro-pub before until visiting here; lovely, cosy, place with a brilliant atmosphere. ‘Defo’ worth a venture out for! Xx
Called in the afternoon. Empty but soon filled up with like minded people who enjoy a quiet pint with good background music.
Just testing a few nice beers from the Martland Mill Brewery in their micro pub, very nice
At any one time you will find four hand pumps dedicated to Martland Mill Brewery Beers from our range shown below.
An enjoyable golden ale. Created with a well balanced hoppiness, a pleasant citrus taste and a hint of spice.
A pale blonde ale with an intense hoppy aroma and a crisp refreshing citrus taste, leading to a slightly dry finish.
A red hued beer with subtle malt aromas, a refreshing rounded bitterness and a crisp clean fruity finish. A true bastion of its class.
A bright golden ale with a crisp hoppy aroma, deep spicy undertones with a hint of honey in the finish.
Seasonal specials will also arrive at the bar throughout the year, these include.
A subtly red hued ale with malty caramel notes that balance well with floral hoppy aromas and hints of blackcurrant.
