    Default Manchester Tap

    I'm not sure if this has already been mentioned elsewhere, but it appears that Manchester Piccadilly will soon be getting the 'Tap' treatment.

    Got to be an improvement on The Mayfield

    The Piccadilly Tap is now open, so I visited last night.

    I've added the pub and the following review.

    "The latest in the chain of Taps is now open. My first impression as we entered was that there's a lot of work still to be done on this one. It's dark and in a dreary building. The decor is a stone built wall and some strange, toffee coloured panelling. Upstairs is more of the same where there's also a table football. The bar is almost triangular in shape and on our visit there were 6 cask alses available and numerous keg taps, all a bit overpriced. The cask choices weren't even very inspiring to me. I had a pint of Dark Star Seville which was fine, but at £3.80 a total rip off. The other half had a 175ml glass of red wine at £5, also a rip off. I found nothing to inspire me about the whole place which is a real shame considering how good the other Taps are. It looks to me like they've opened too early, but as there were over 50 people in last night at 5:45 I could well be wrong. I'll try again in another 3 months or so to see if anything has improved."

    Very disappointing.

    Couple more London based 'Tap' pubs in the pipeline.

    One near Kings Cross - http://restinghare.com/

    And one at Waterloo - http://www.waterlootap.com/

    and in York "There will be 20 beers on the bar all told, covering keg and cask, from around the UK, Europe and beyond"

    nice to see an old building coming back into use
