Blackthorn _ left this review about The Market Inn

A pleasant and traditional pub, handily located just around the corner from the railway station. Decor wise it has a bit of a ‘70s feel to it, with plenty of (fake?) wood panelling, even the hearth around the fire is wood panelled as well as the lower half of all the walls.

It’s split in to two bars, with the cosier lounge bar being on the left. Besides the aforementioned wood panelling, there is rough plasterwork on the top half of the walls and a few local pictures. The right hand bar is a larger L-shape affair and is a little more sports orientated, with a laminate wood floor, pool table and darts board although there is still a carpeted section at the front with a row of tables and chairs in front of the window. There is also an attractive stone fireplace. Landlord seemed to be a friendly chap.

There is a surprisingly large beer garden at the back, although it is somewhat featureless and actually looks more like a big field than a garden. There is a climbing frame to keep the kids amused, and a massive apple tree, although unfortunately much of the fruit goes to waste and was all over the floor. A perfect opportunity for the pub to make their own cider I would have thought. There is also a small patio area, partly covered, and a pond.

Beers on tap were Doom Bar and Otter Ale. There was also a pump for Tribute but this appeared to be off. Ciders were Thatcher’s Gold and Stowford Press.
