Market Tavern

Recommended Posts

Was in the Tavern on Saturday night, rumour has it that this will be the next pub to close it's doors.

Malicious gossip or truth?

mind you i don't know how they manage to have a live band on every Saturday without a cover charge to recoup some of the cost as this seems to be the only night they get a few in the place.

They surely cannot make enough in bar takings in one night to pay wages, beer, band etc.

Will be a shame if it does close or stop the bands as this is the only reason we go there.

Just a thought ! Maybe a mobile grog truck could be the answer to the problems of pubs closing, it could be fitted with a bell on it booze taps inside and be driven from one end of Bedlington to the other What do you all think

I'm sure I saw you in there not too long ago!

I don't mind the olde Tavern... the owners are canny, the clientelle aren't as bad as elsewhere and they have a quiz machine!

Although the MOR rock bands will never rival the cutting-edge vibes of the Railway for the movers and shakers, they will however, please a load of beered up knackers on a Friday and Saturday night, which is what it's all about isn't it? And in a time where anyone with a guitar reckons they're the next Ting Ting, Bright Eyes or Young Knife (while resembling a poor man's Keane), I'd rather hear a second-rate cover of 'Sultans of Swing' any day.

Eloquent, mrsvic, but then that's what I would expect......

Thanks, kind sir!

So... let's hear your opinion on the Tavern!

Myself and Mr Vic ventured down last night and were met with a fine atmosphere and a jovial crowd. The alcopops flowed well and I won £2 on the quiz machine! My only criticism is that the band were far too old to be playing Kings of Leon covers, however they made it up with a cracking bit of REM.

Oh, and I was told by Sarah that they are NOT closing! With the place packed out all night, I can't see why they would... I even saw the North's landlady in there for a bit, thus proving it's popularity... I'm guessing it was the busiest alehouse in Bedlington by far...

Strangest thing about the night though, was mentioning bedlington.co.uk... it seems that all the cool kids are on the site! Get telt! :D

I guess that makes me a 'cool kid' then.......

I think the landlady you saw in there was not, as it happens, the North's; Mary would not bring herself to venture into an establishment where people are giving their money across the counter to someone else....no, it was she from the Grapes.

My opinion? I like the place; it's friendly, Sarah and Ian are good people, decent pint and on Friday and Saturday nights the only place with anyone in. Mind you, I'm party to a few in the afternoon generally, so evening visits are a rarity for me......

I couldn't believe it either! But she was!

Maybe she was out finding where all her customers were going? Or maybe she just fancied a cheaper pint?!

Nice people they may be, but I prefer pub workers to show more interest in serving pints than enjoying a succession of soothing cigarettes.

Thank the smoking ban for that..if they could smoke inside they wouldn`t need to dissappear outside every 2 minutes for a tab, then you would get your pint quicker. Also, if the smoking ban was lifted, there might be an atmosphere in the pubs instead of empty seats or `closed` signs at the door!

A return to a pub full of ignorant c*nts blowing their cancerous fumes in my face and going home in smoke-stinking clothes? No thanks.

You`ve changed your tune quick, they were nice people before, now they`re ignorant c*ts :lol:

And that`s swearing.

Did you never go in pubs before the smoking ban? I`m sure you must have done.

I'm only 19, so I never really drank in pubs before the smoking ban. ;)

However, my older friends tell me that the smokers would have little compunction in blowing their disgusting smoke in your face and that going home with smoke-ruined clothes was a regular occurrence.

If you're at work, whether in a pub or anywhere else, you shouldn't be smoking all the time. You should be doing your job.

    • A seven-year-old girl has brought her community closer together by creating beautiful messages of hope.
      Olivia Walker, from Bedlington, started by drawing a large poster to put on the fence for her next-door neighbours to see, because she "didn't want them to be sad when they were walking the dog".
      She then began to make more personalised posters, to display on fences or in her windows, aimed at cheering up other neighbours.
      The rainbow has become a popular symbol of hope within the pandemic over the two weeks, with many households displaying rainbows in their windows as a sign that this 'storm' will pass.
      But Olivia has taken it a step further with her personalised messages, drawing more for strangers online after her designs were shared on a local Facebook group and brought delight to many who saw them.
      The St Bede's R C Primary School pupil said: "I wanted to do it because people are along, and I wanted to make them happy. It makes me happy to see how much people like them."
