We started our evening in the market Inn and could happily have stayed all evening. Nice local pub which had local people in it rather than tourists. Very friendly staff and dog-friendly too. Enjoyed a game of bar billiards and my other half assured me that their beer was excellent - they serve a good pint.

great bar, great staff, good bar sports available with Darts, Bar billiards and 8 ball UK pool, only downside NO sport on the TV, which is the only reason we moved on during our 10 man pub crawl

We visited the town of Sandwich a number of times before, but never been to the Market Inn. We decided to have lunch after a walk through town and I had a cottage pie which arrived shortly after and looked very nice. To spice the food up a little I used the salt shaker which was provided on the table... More

Thank you for your comments but it would of been kind of you to tell the truth of what really happened. The brand new salt grinder which you broke and then proceeded to pour over your cottage pie was your own fault. unfortnately we are not in the habit of giving away free meals as you put too much salt...

Description
Situated in the ancient market town and Cinque Port of Sandwich, the Market Inn was first licensed as a pub in 1874 although the building is almost certainly much older. In the early days, the pub was the meeting place for traders bringing their livestock to the market, hence of course its name. It continues the tradition of warm hospitality to this day. The Market Inn is a family run public house & restaurant under the supervision of the Cavell Family. All The food is homemade and made fresh to order. We serve hand pulled real ales alongside wine, draught lager, cider and spirits. We are open daily from 10:00 am. Breakfast is available between 10:00am and 12:00pm. The main menu is available everyday from 12:00pm until 3pm and 6:00 until 9pm.
