Nice busy pub with good beers and a discount for CAMRA members.

I like this sort of high street boozer, and visiting it before the midday food crowd was clearly a good idea. The Great Yorkshire pale was superb.

Never again! The day we visited it was busy, and within a few moments could hear the waitress apologising to different people in the restaurant end. We ordered steak and chips and pie and chips. The first order that came was wrong, the second was wrong, but by then we were starving so my partner just ate his pie and mash, even though he did order chips. Then I realised we had been over charged, when we mentioned this to the waitress she said the guy had taken our order down wrong and had charged us for superior pie and mash which was about 3.00 more! Meanwhile the couple next to us, even though they had ordered two meals, this guy (who was just new to the job and in my opinion should not have been working on such a busy day) had only taken for one. It really was a farce and I will never go back there again.

Couldn't really recommend this one. Not made to feel especially welcome by smirking woman behind the bar, or the guys at the bar who were very reluctant to move a muscle in any direction so that I could see what ales were on offer. The Thwaites Wainwright was OK, but just a bit too chilled. The most annoying aspect was a surly staff member collecting menus and without a word hurling them into the alcove I unwittingly sat by, virtually whacking my head with them. Strange demarcation seemed to be in place, regulars with stony stares sat the front and students with foreign accents occupied the upraised rear. No distinguishing atmosphere seemed discernible. Sorry to the supporters of the Market Tavern but I couldn't see a reason to stay for more than one pint.
