The Tap & Spile was my 7th pub of the day in County Durham on Saturday. None of the previous 6 were listed on the site. I've requested most of these to be added. But only the Lambton Worm in Chester-Le-Street and the Newfield Inn in Newfield were of note. The Tap & Spile however was my favourite pub of the day in the county. It's a traditional two-roomed local in the Framwellgate Moor area. 8 ales are split across handpulls in both rooms. The selection on Saturday evening was Salopian Shropshire Gold, Pennine Hair Of The Dog, Maxim Ward's Best Bitter, Roosters YPA, Rudgate Battle Axe, Ossett Clearwater, Anarchy Hard Times & Tyne Bank Motueka Dollar. The cider was Old Rosie. Both rooms were busy and it had a cosy atmosphere. Dogs are welcomed.

The pub has two front bars and a large back room. Its been a local CAMRA award winner. Found a varied selection of ales from near and far, with eight constantly changing handpumps, seemingly well kept. Very welcoming atmosphere, with friendly bar staff.

This ia a small public house like what they all used to be. A constantly changing beer menu. Not so many minor breweries from outside the North-East represented. Quality beer at a price which deters noisy students.

My local. The best real ale pub I know bar none. Lesley knows her stuff, and the proof is in the product, the knowledgable staff are always chirpy and on hand to assist. The crack is tip top, the pub is alive with all sorts of ages and groups and the atmosphere is brilliant. Shame Enterprise don't plough some of their profits back into the pub.

Love this pub (I travel for about an hour to get there). It has two sections, one a rammed spit and sawdust side - which is always full to the brim, the other more like a dining area (no food served though), which is less full.

It stands out for its serve of drink though. A country mile above every pub in Durham.
