A new tap bar has opened in Hanley, so that real ale fans in Staffordshire can enjoy a pint made from an on-site brewery. Mart’s Brewhouse & Tap has opened in the former Club International unit in Piccadilly, by husband and wife Will and Holly Haywood along with former Coachmaker’s Arms landlords, Sue Grocott and Jason Barlow. The two level bar can accommodate 90 people and offers up to eight real ales brewed on site and 14 tap beers, plus a selection of spirits.
