Located on the main drag in downtown Carlisle, Market Cross has an Englsih-inspiried dive bar feel to it. Half the restaurant is the bar area and the other half is a sit down restaurant. I sat in the bar. They had 30+ on tap but only 4 of their own. Unfortunately the only Tap listing they have is a too-small neon sign. As others note, they donít really push their own beers. The food was tasty and very nicely priced. The only quibble is the service. It took forever to get recognized and they ignored me for long stretches. Plus they forgot one of the items I ordered. I think Iíll go back for the beer tics but I might be better off pulling my own pints.

Large long bar up front, restaurant in the rear. Mellow crowd mid-week. Only two of their own beers on tap, plus a decent range of tap and bottled beers. Worth a stop.

Shotgun style bar in historic downtown. Nice feel with lots of locals and good conversation. Number of hometeam brews available: only 3!!! A Pale Lager, a Maibock and a Red Ale??? The visitors taps are chockful of regionals and the bottle menu is fairly extensive, so that skews the selection rating upward. Food menu is crowded with the typical pub fare, and was average to good. Prices are OK and service is good, if not overly friendly while having to serve every patron in the place singlehandedly. Could have been great, but I really came for the brews and having only 3 available was a huge disappointment.

Get your World Beer Tour Passport and climb aboard! Several nice beers on tap and dozens in bottles. There are usually a few house beers on tap along with some interesting ones on rotation. Make sure you try Old Yeller!

One really would not know that beer is brewed here if it were not lightly advertised on a chalk board partly hidden by bar columns. The inside is tired and old English decor with a local dive feel. The beer selection is pretty good despite having only two house beers. We had Storm King on hand pump here!!! Yummy.

Great hole in the wall atmosphere. Limited selection of beers made on premise but all are true to English style and pretty solid, with no off-flavors. Great selection of bottled beers, local and national beers. English bangers was amazing. Good people to chat with on both sides of the bar. Overall highly recommended.

They have a passport book that you can get checked off, It is called the World Tour 100 beers in one year. With different levels. Level 1 is drink 12 different beers and get a T-shirt. Level 2 drink 100 different beers and get your name on the wall. PLUS the price is good.

Great pub! Loved the atmosphere and the selection of taps and bottles. Food was great too. Terrible brewpub! The only thing to complain about was that the house beers are terrible, especially their lager. If you ignore the fact that they brew, this is a great bar. Not worth the trip.
