A PUB in Salisbury has reopened under a new name following a 'full and substantial' refurbishment.

The Market Tavern, at 16 Butchers Row, opened its doors for the first time at around 8pm on Thursday evening, March 28, after the Chickpea Group took it over.

Formerly known as the Market Inn, the pub was closed from January 27 for an extensive revamp.

Guests have access to two bars inside the pub, one upstairs and one down, and the seating area sprawls onto Market Square under a gazebo.

Executive chef Harry Russel will oversee the menu at the Tavern which is filled with "classic pub bangers".

Food prices range from £15 for pie and mash to £7 for a chip butty.

The pub sits next to the Chickpea Group's pizza restaurant, Nole on the Square, and guests can order pizza next door to enjoy it along with their pint.

Director Ethan Davids previously said acquiring Market Inn was "a no-brainer" as it had been on Chickpea Group's hit list since Nole opened.

"I've always loved the Market Inn. This is a slightly different model to the pub we are used to opening because most of our boozers are destination food spots in the countryside," he added.

A spokesperson for Stonegate, which owns the pub, previously told the Journal it was undergoing a "full, substantial, interior revamp".
