A really nice pub with some original features and a half decent selection of ales on. Well worth a visit.

I was fairly impressed by this pub. But there is still room for improvement. It's a traditional and friendly boozer opposite Preston's market. It was busy, but not crowded on my Saturday evening visit. But I still managed to find a seat. Ales were Wylam Hickey The Rake, Tiny Rebel Fugg Life, Theakston Lightfoot & Double Cross IPA & Adnams Fat Sprat. I was a little disappointed that there were no dark beers or a real cider. But I did note in the local CAMRA magazine that they are thinking of introducing cider. Decent pub.

Recently refurbished and now run by the chap who had the Black Horse just down the road. Traditional atmosphere. A warm welcome. Choice of cask ales. Samples offered. Well worth a visit.

Inside - what looks like a historic boozer. Only two ales on, the XB was almost neat vinegar, the other was fine though. Barmaid was friendly & helpful

Straight after football at Deepdale I made the 15 minute brisk walk to the Market Tavern.

Through the market and this attractive pub is in front of me, I get here at 2.15pm and the pub looks good from the outside, this is until I see the signs on the doors that say 'Under new management'! This is always off putting and so it proved on this occasion.

A lovely tiled floor leads onto a wooden floor, there’s an original tiled fire place, original mirrors, marble top bar however the leather seating is ripped and the tables are very worn, this isn't good.

3 ales on which are Robinsons Dizzy Blonde, St Austell Tribute and my choice which is Theakstons Old Peculiar. Its a decently kept and poured pint.

Lots of old photos on the walls, a few locals in, pop music playing on the jukebox, the Market is pleasant and the pint I had was decent but it's not the pub I was expecting and I will be surprised if this makes the 2016 GBG.

It's been ticked
