The Old Market Tavern is a decent looking pub that is named after the street it is on.
This pub is a Wadworth tied house so i was well pleased,once inside there is a long narrow room which runs to the rear,the floor is bare boarded,the seating is wood bench type on the left side,the rear area is up one step where there are normal tables and chairs.
There were three real ales on the bar all from Wadworths,i had a drink of Wadworth Henrys IPA which went down well,the other beers were 6X and Swordfish.
There was background music playing which was a good job as the pub was empty on my Saturday afternoon visit.
I quite liked this pub.

A cosy and traditional bar whose decor would make it seem quite at home in a country village rather than a busy main road in to Bristol. At the front is a carpeted area with wood panelling covering the walls from floor to ceiling, making is reminiscent of a hotel drawing room.

Elsewhere there are bare boards on the floor and much wood elsewhere, with a wood panelled bar counter, wooden shelf around the top and many wooden beams on the ceiling, some adorned with fairly lights. There was even an arched section of roof at one point in the middle of the pub. At the rear is a conservatory with a large, L-shaped white leather sofa which must be a pleasant spot on a sunny day, and this leads in to a garden. Elsewhere was a DJ console and some disco lights on the ceiling hinting at what it might be like on a weekend, a projector and screen (turned off) as well as a food server counter although I suspect that’s only in use on a lunchtime. There was also a selection of minority interest magazines on top of an old beer barrel.

Presumably it’s a Wadworth’s pub as theirs was the only beer available – 6X, Henry’s IPA and Swordfish. The cider was Thatcher’s Gold.
