The Tap & Run in Upper Broughton, Nottinghamshire, displays a logo of two cricket bats, a cricket ball and a beer-pump handle. Part of the Cat & Wickets Pub Company, which also runs The Three Crowns in Wymeswold, it is owned by professional cricketers Stuart Broad and Harry Gurney, and Dan Cramp.

They’ve created a stylish, modern and cosy pub that’s good for dining or a relaxing drink at the bar. The upper area is a bright and open-plan dining space, half of which is a conservatory containing several large and handsome planters. Walk down a few steps and you’re in a cosier, atmospheric bar area with bar stools, soft armchairs and a fireplace. As a whole, it’s an impressive, carefully designed interior.

Food-wise, you can choose from a nice array of pub classics such as beer-battered haddock with thick-cut chips and garden peas; and Pie of the Day with mash and mixed greens. Alternatively, there’s a good range of slightly more ‘gastro’ options like ‘Beef and Beets’ (8oz rump picana steak with salt-baked celeriac and beetroot); and Malaysian seabass curry with pickled beetroot, compressed watermelon and fennel.

On our visit, we enjoyed a hearty beef Sunday roast with tender, pink-in-the-middle beef, a giant Yorkshire pud, roasties and fresh vegetables. We ordered a couple of sides, including ‘Pig in Pots’ – spectacularly moreish pigs-in-blankets.

The Tap & Run is a natty venue that combines a little sophistication with some pubby cosiness. Add good food and local cask beers (we had a perfect pint of Vixen from Loughborough’s Charnwood Brewery), and you’ve got a hostelry that’s a pleasure to visit.
