    I drive from Hershey just to get their Fish and Chips! Also love the cozy atmosphere and great brews. I’ve always had good service and their prices are ok.

    If you want to drink beer from Cambodia, by all means go there. If you want good food at reasonable prices and a waitress that’s not snotty, save your money. The place for some reason has always been way over rated.

    You asked for ideas, Here goes
    We had early dinner there, and unfortunately were subjected tio shift change, ( two waitresses ).
    Contrary to what MANY of your customers imply, our food was outstanding, I had King fish and chips and 2 pale ale drafts, my wife had the stuffed lounder, and wine she brought.
    The wait staff, although effiecient was not at all personable and unfortunately they took a $3.00 hit on the tip, because I TOTALLY disagree with your corkage especially since you do NOT serve wine, and the wine my wife brought was screw cap zif. ( her choice (, NO corkage, that my friend is both absurd and unacceptable.

    We visited on Feb 4th 2010. I had their own-brewed IPA and really enjoyed it. There were a bunch of customers there – families too. There was live music, which was also good – in tune – pleasant, non-intrusive – exactly what pub music ought to be. Our server was pleasant and welcoming. No issues at all with that. However, the entrees we ordered were sadly, completely inedible. We ordered the Shepherd’s Pie and the Guinness-cooked steak tips. The mashed potato was so obviously from a packet, the steak “tips” were some flank or low grade stewing cut that literally looked like dog food on the plate – overcooked, dry, no gravy of any description – horrible, the sweetcorn was, well, odd. The Sheperd’s Pie had the same packet mash and a very strange taste that the manager kindly identified as “non-traditional, we use cumin and corriander”.

    Don’t go there if you’re visiting, or if you’re hungry. Go there if you’re local, know the menu WELL and for their own beer.

    Hey everyone, this is Ashleigh from Market Cross. Thank you so much for the comments, we are always looking for new ideas and feedback. Here is my personal e-mail: ashleighgoss@gmail.com – please let me know any ideas on the menu. We update it yearly to bring on new ideas that still stay affordable for our clientele. We have really increased the creativity and quality of our dinner specials: this weekend we have a hawaiian yellowtail fish, Kampachi, with a pineapple chutney that will be delicious! We welcome any ideas and will do what we can to make our customers happy 🙂 Unfortunately our spacial limitations in the kitchen can limit what we offer, but we get creative. Once again, thank you all for your support over the past 15 years, CHEERS!

    MCP is my favorite place in Carlisle to relax with a couple pints of international beers and ales on a Sat. eve. Great beer selection, and their home brewed IPA is worth the drive. Wait staff are always friendly and attentive. MCP is a great neighborhood pub – comfortable and unpretentious. I agree the menu needs work, but the food is usually not the reason I stop by.

    My husband and I enjoy eating here. Their ruben sandwiches are delicious. The beer selection is amazing. There were even a couple types of beer that we could only get around the Pittsburgh area and my husband and brother-in-law were excited to see that they carried it! (Penn Pilsner). All around, this is a good place to eat… and drink!

    Additions to the menu are delicious, tho! Crab stuffed portabella is a treat. Beer, as everyone indicates, is the high light but the menu is improving leaps and bounds. The weekend specials list included mussels in white wine sauce, citrus pesto swordfish, and jambalaya! yum!

    ‘New’ menu is the old menu with a few more additions. Still no real fries with the fish and chips, but at least they use cod.

    Good beer menu, but that’s about it. Stay away from the food, especially the entrees (although the salad was not great either—please use fresh lettuce!). The meat pie was disgusting: greasy filling and undercooked pastry. The servers ignored us and weren’t at all welcoming. I agree with Sam, below: they need to streamline the menu and improve the kitchen.

    The food here is not “tired and old”. Try the blackened swordfish, the English bangers (or bangers and mash as well), or just about any sandwich on the menu. There’s nothing on the menu that isn’t good enough to be there. Maybe you just had a bad batch of fries. It happens to the best you know.

    Best beer menu around! They are bringing in more good entertainment as well on the weekends.

    Good beer selection. One of few places with cask conditioned beer. Some beers are made on premises. Servers are friendly, food is tired and old. If they reduced the menu size and improved the quality this could be a good place. Frozen fries with their fish and chips, no self respecting pub would do that.
