Market Tafarn
Reviewed 20 February 2014

The general market is open 8.00 - 4.00pm on a Tuesday, Friday and Saturday; with an array of stalls both inside and out. The variety is amazing the food stalls sell fresh wholesome produce, the general traders have a wide selection of new and used items. The standard is high. A Monthly Craft Fayre is held on the second Saturday of the month.

It is well worth a visit, as for previous review - a shame but do not let this deter you from visiting the market itself.

We decided to take our family here for lunch as we read about it on the internet.
The food was awful and whilst the service was timely, the managers / owners are just plain rude. My Mother found a hair in her food and my wife's came out cold. When the owners were approached regarding this, they basically told us to [...] Off and claimed that it left the kitchen fine.
We left with the male owner shouting and pointing his finger at my wife.
You've been warned.

The Market Tafarn is the only pub in Abergavenny which is known for good blues,rock/pop music and open mic sessions which give up-and-coming musicians a chance to perform live. We have had the B.B.C (the British Broadcasting Corporation) film our Open Mic Sessions. We are right in the centre of town, just a short walk to bus and rail station. We stock a selection of good real ales through the year. Myself, Janie the landlady and Viji the landlord have traveled most of the world between us. I was a nurse and Viji worked for multinational companies in London. Viji is the sportsman having played hockey and cricket at county level. I am the one who organises the music. We have twin rooms and family rooms and also a room which will accommodate groups such as walkers and golfers. We welcome visitors and pride ourselves on our hospitality. We have secure parking for bikes. ... more   less
