Like: The Market Tavern

Recommended Posts

Nice to see the Market Tavern with a fresh coat of paint and new signage - it looks great but what is it like inside - I went in there a few years ago and was not impressed.

Why should they?

The Tavern offers something wetherspoons does not: Entertainment.

Worth a little extra on a pint to watch a live band or have a game of pool in my opinion.

They should, however, either get a new pool table and maintain it, or drop the price of it. 50p a game is a little steep in my opinion, whereas the Sports Club in Blyth has 2 great tables, and they are only 20p a pop.

Don't be daft!

Wetherspoons will never get the trade from the Tavern. They might go up there for a pint, but they will return to the Tavern afterwards. The people that go there, do so because they like what the tavern has to offer.

Its the same reason i used to go to Movies when the topless barmaids were serving. :dribble:

Although they were not exactly my cup of tea, they still had assets i was interested in, and myself and the other porves even paid an extra nickel for XXXXX!

and what happens if the lion gets a pool table?

They wont. They only have machines in there that come with their own licence. That's one of the reasons they remain cheep to run. They allow others to put entertainment machines in their pubs and charge them a 'rent' of sorts. they have to provide their own gambling license or whatever it is that's needed. they do not have an entertainment licence at all, hence why there is no music.

If they do, Good! even more reason to drop the price and improve the quality of the other tables in the area.

and personally i find the bands at the tavern suck! might be nice to have a pub were you dont get deafened by crap bands that can't sing! or listening to chava music with its non stop three cord tune!

Of course, how could i be so stupid?!?

I forgot everyone had the same tastes, and that all pubs should be exactly the same. i mean, there just is not anywhere else to go in Bedlington! How dare they put music on in that one pub that's not to your taste !

:blink::|

You'd think will all the pubs being so crap and empty, there would be at least one that someone had not put a quid in the Jukebox of!:withstupid:

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
