Thank you for your review however it would appear that you have left us this review in error as we neither have fish and chips nor a veggie burger on our menu.

Lemonade is good - 3.05 so middle of the range in price. Comfortable atmosphere and a nice pool table.

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...More

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.
