Fantastic service matched with very reasonably priced yet absolutely fantastic food. Being next to the canal was great and made for a pleasant trip for my friends child who loved the boats.

Very good service, good food, good real ale, what more do you want? Booked a table for Mothers Day and the four of us had a very enjoyable experience. Staff were very good and can honestly say we all really enjoyed our food including steak & ale pie, homemade spicy chicken pizza and pork chop steak. We had the garlic bread to start with and had no room for pudding. £68 for the 4 of us including drinks so very good at £17 per head especially for Mothers Day, although menu was the same as normal.

Thank you Tap and Spile for a really great time on Saturday 18th March 2017. We received a wonderfully warm welcome on arrival. Our table was waiting for us despite us being a little late. The service was lovely and the food was outstanding. My two daughters and I took my Mum for her 80th birthday treat, we were not disappointed. I would highly recommend dining at the Tap and Spile. We will visit again soon.

Food and service excellent, we were a party of four who enjoyed beef nachos for starter, great steaks and lamb chops for main and we shared a huge Belgium waffle with strawberries and ice cream for dessert which was delicious. We sat outside next to the canal before going inside to our reserved table next to an open window where we still had a good view. Would definitely return.

Don't be fooled by the bar upstairs. When you walk in to the dark dingy bar find the stairs that will take you to the restaurant. Once in the restaurant the atmosphere changes. It's relaxed and calming. The food was lovely and came out hot. The staff are friendly and accommodating. All in all a fantastic experience and wil definitely be recommending it.

the service is lovely, very fast and helpful. The food comes very quickly and is always very hot when it comes out, however most of the seats are by radiators which can become very hot when eating, although if you ask to move and there is a table away from a radiator available the staff will be more than willing to move you

We were looking for a nice place to eat before seeing a show on Valentine's Day and after viewing favourable reviews, we plumped for the Tap & Spile. We were not disappointed - we chose the 3 course Valentine's Special which was great value and the food tasted superb. The staff were very pleasant throughout and we will definitely visit again !!!

Great location on the canal side, tables outside to sit and have a drink next to the canal. Good choice of real ales, nice varied food menu. The food was served by attentive staff with no delay. Overall a really nice place to have a drink and a meal, the restaurant is nicely decorated downstairs whilst the small bar upstairs retains it's quirky character.

Fantastic pub on the canal, excellent food at a reasonable prices. The staff are wonderful, very friendly and helpful. We had a meal here before a concert at the barclaycard arena, which was a few minuets walk just along the canal. We will be back, next time we are in the area!

Nice real ale pub with restaurant area downstairs on the canalside level. Nicely decorated and good choice of typical pub grub on the menu plus pizza options. Very friendly owners and staff. Toilets on the restaurant level could do with being a bit tidier, the floor was rather wet. Overall good value for a city centre establishment and will return.

We had a very nice pleasurable Sunday lunch, which was most enjoyable. We had a seat which overlooked the canal, very relaxing. I am gluten free, but there was nothing on the desert menu for Coelliacs. However I did ask for some fresh fruit and custard, and the presentation of the desert was lovely. Would definitely go again.

Excellent service, the staff were professional, but also friendly, they were always on hand to make sure we didn't have to wait for a drink. Food was excellent, starters, mains and desserts were first class. A great choice of ales on offer as well, definitely will visit again.

Visited the Tap and Spile for the second time having enjoyed it so much the first. They serve really good pub food in a clean and comfy environment. All the staff are cheerful and chatty. They even changed our table so that we could watch the rugby!

Lovely old canalside pub with a restaurant downstairs opening onto towpath. Great food, cosy atmosphere and attentive staff but not a great deal of choice for vegetarians. My veggie friend chose a pizza and I had salmon. Food and service were good.

Good choice of food, reasonably priced, excellent staff and a good atmosphere, and right on the canal as a bonus. Only reason didn't give it a 6....my wife was a bit disappointed with her Lasagne.
