Graham Coombs left this review about The Old Buttermarket

A small Nicholson's pub right in the heart of the tourist area, with the main draw being outdoor tables in the market square. Inside is a smallish bar with flock wallpaper and brass fittings, with a larger dining room behind. On handpump were London Pride, Summer Lightning, Doom Bar and Old Rosie, plus the house brew from St Austell.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Old Buttermarket

Nicholson's pub with the name = the address, located in a prime position by the cathedral entrance. As traditional in appearance as you would expect, both outside and within, with a smallish bar at the front and a split-level arrangement of various dining areas further back with a separate servery. A (duplicated) bank of five handpumps can be found on each counter, dispensing the 'house' NPA, Doom Bar, Pride, Windsor & Eton Knight of the Garter and the seasonal Thornbridge Wild Holly (£4.35).

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Old Buttermarket

A tastefully decorated Nicholson's house consisting of a front room with bar over to the left, a rear dining area and some tables and chairs out front. The timber work and bar counter were finished in a dark Jacobean colour and various sections were wallpapered. Five ales on handpump, so we went for the Windsor and Eaton Knight of the Garter. The pub seemed to be short staffed on our visit, so waiting at the bar took some time, as the two staff on were ferrying meals outside and around the front bar. The pub attracts the majority of tourists in the area. I don't think I'd like to visit here in peak season.
