Since the takeover of Market Town Taverns by Okells parent company, the Town Street Tavern has been renamed and revamped, it is now much less brown, brighter but with a lot less character. In spite of the takeover there are still 8 pumps instead of the usual 6 that Okells leave post makeover.

Market Town Taverns now have 19 outlets around the North West, with their sister pub the Arcadia in Headingly, being the nearest one. This pub serves food and drink and was particularly quiet on our visit as the kitchen was closed for the day, due to some maintenance, so the service at the bar for beer was excellent. The bar area is situated at the rear of the pub and had a good choice of eight ales on pump. The young barman, along with the manageress were both welcoming and we enjoyed chatting to them both about beer and pubs. Beers on the day were Turning Point Headhunter, Lucid Dream, Disco King, Abbeydale Absolution, TT Boltmaker, Elland Game Changer, Black Sheep Baa Baa and Rat Brewery White Rat. We went for the Abbeydale, Boltmaker and the majority of the Headhunter Brewery beers, my favourite being the Disco King. All their beers were excellent and the pub was very clean and well run. There was also an equally sized first floor room, which was just as comfortable as the ground floor.

Having made the trip out to Horsforth to try this Market Town Taverns pub, it very nearly turned out to be a pointless journey, as the premises was still locked up when I arrived just after opening time (12:00) and remained so when I returned after a stroll around the nearby shops a good half hour later. Thankfully, just as I was about to give up, a bemused barman spotted me and unlocked the front door. The landlord was most apologetic – it appears that the one thing they forgot to do on their morning routine was to open the doors! Anyway, once inside, things improved pretty rapidly, as this is a very pleasant ale house that merited a longer visit than my schedule allowed. You enter into a smart bare boarded room, split in two by some partitioning walls, but with the servery clearly visible at the rear. There is a good deal of seating in the front half of the pub, mainly standard chairs and low stools in a bright space under the large front windows. Seating in the rear half is a bit more restricted due to the space taken up by the servery, but there’s quite a nice area to the right with mostly bench seating. The pub has been decorated with loads of pump clips, which run around walls and the structural beams, whilst there’s some pretty good brewerania around the bar area including some nice brewery posters. The genial South African landlord took time out for a chat and had some top banter with a larger group that arrived later on. I had a quick look at the menu and thought it sounded very appealing. There is a function room upstairs but I didn’t get round to checking it out.
There is a fairly spectacular ale selection across the handsome row of hand pumps. On my visit, the options were Taylor Golden Best, Ilkley Mary Jane, Salamander Doll’s Eye, Okells MPA, Black Sheep Golden Sheep and Ruddy Ram, Collingham Journeyman and Treboom Yorkshire Sparkle. A tough choice for first beer of the day, but I ended up with a lovely pint of the Mary Jane. Keg stuff included Marston’s Oyster Stout, Leffe and Kaltenburg.
I really like the Market Town Tavern format and this is a fine representative of the chain. The welcome (once I’d made it inside!) was warm and friendly, the beer in great shape and the ambiance ideal for those preferring to drop in for food. Well worth the journey out of town for.
