The Market Tavern, Knaresborough
OK for the price
We had a very warm welcome on arrival, and were quickly checked in. The room was clean and comfortable but in need of refurbishment. Breakfast was excellent. We were right on the market square, and close to a good selection of restaurants. Two issues with the room: the single radiator was not powerful enough to warm the room, which had two outside walls with large windows; and the curtains were not thick enough to cut out the strong light coming from the square (which was on all night).

Lovely people, great pub with fantastic live music (on the night we were there anyway!) awesome location and a tasty breakfast, great value for the price, we are even looking into coming back when the band is next on!

OK, but competitors are better
Stayed here cos the place I normally stay was fully booked. Room was OK tho £50 was expensive for what you get as a single traveller; there are cheaper (and more comfortable) options normally available around the square. The landlady was lovely & full of boundless energy. The security arrangements for guests coming back after midnight need improving. Would stop here again, but only if other places were fully booked. I would favour other tried and tested B&B's first. This is a very dog friendly pub - the resident pooch greets every guest and stretches out on the sofas. Non-dog lovers beware. In short, the Market Tavern either needs to be cheaper than the competition or comfier than the competition to warrant another stay.

Good value for money
I was greeted with the friendly owners. Nothing was too much trouble. They made you welcome and the breakfast was lovely. The rooms could do with updating but they were basic and clean.
