The Market Tavern has gone downhill hasn't it. Where did the people that go there spring up from? They all look about 90 years old, very weathered and utterly pished all the time?

I don't think they are doing too well. They tried their hand at food which ailed and they are now back as a bar. Not been in for while so I will reserve judgment.....for now.

It's very off putting walking past that bit as there are always drunks of some kind outside, be it early morning or later in the day! They're even there on a Sunday morning, well before any other shops are even open.

Not entirely sure when the Market Tavern was decent?

It's been a shit-tip for a good 8 years.

I must admit, I think the admission is a little much; I would think an adult ticket in the £4.50-£5.00 range would be more appropriate tbh.
I heard the tickets can be used more then once.

Have to say the new centre does look good. I was hoping for a more gimicky setup with flags, banners and the like but have to say the sleek contemporary entrance looks really nice. Will be sure to pay a visit sometime soon.
