In our experience, market pubs are often like station pubs - transient clientele, generic beers, so-so service, you'd be unwise to expect too much. Happily, this is not the case with the Durham's Market Tavern. There's pretty good beer on offer, from an ever-changing selection - including, on our visit, the excellent Double Maxim from the Maxim brewery just up the road and a southern interloper, familiar to many FAP readers - Young's bitter. The service is friendly, as are the clientele - it doesn't take long to for a conversation to start up, the food is cheap and no-nonsense, although as we weren't hungry, we didn't try it. There's a standard-sized TV for sport (and news, if we're still trying to get a government) and a bigger projector screen for the big matches. It's a long narrow pub, with dark panelling and a suitably olde-worlde atmosphere, with bags of character. It's in a central location and it's easy to find - you'd be hard pressed to miss this place, just look for the six K6 phones boxes and you'll spot the pub lurking behind them, next to the indoor market. All-in-all a jolly, fine pub.
