Thank you for your kind review, I have passed your comments on to the rest of the team. Perhaps you would like to try our Sunday roast and give us your comments on that?

Visited the Market Tavern, and I must say the food is amazing. Traditional and hearty, really comforting and good value for money! All the staff are polite and professional, service with a smile and it makes such a difference! Would highly recommend :)

Fantastic local pub in the centre of sandbach. The food is great, there's a really good selection of drinks and the staff are lovely. There really is a fantastic atmosphere here regardless of whether or not you go in on a Saturday night (band night)...More

Hi Claire Thank you for your kind comments, I have passed them on to the team. Glad you like the new food offer, have you tried our Sunday roast?

The Market Tavern is a typical small town pub. Of an evening it's rammed with old people who can't handle their drink and young people who are even more drunk. This is especially so on a Friday and Saturday night. The decor is dated and...More

Thank you for your review. We are currently upgrading the public rooms so hopefully addressing some of your comments, unfortunately the bar is a different matter. Due to the size of the current structure it is impractical to have more staff behind it, however, we...More

I have visited this establishment quite a few times and have always found it to be very friendly with great service. Friday and Saturday nights are always good as they have entertainment on, normally a disco on Friday and bands on Saturdays. I always come...More

Arrived at 10.30pm, place was already filling up - maybe the latest bar open in the area? Full to bursting, everyone hangs around the bar and the service wasn't quick - staff seemed more interesting in counting the till than putting money in it! Selection...More

Thank you for your review Unfortunately the bar is very restrictive and really needs upgrading, we have plans for this hopefully in 2018. I have raised your comments about the ice and lemon in gin with the team to ensure this is addressed in future....More

This pub turns nightclub after dark in what can only be described as a shed... with a small stage for top local DJ's and local bands trying to make it big! WONDERWALL! The bar has improved in the shed from a piece of PDF to...More

Very expensive for poor atmosphere! Very average outside area, toilets were very dirty. The whole venue needs renovating!

This is quite an unusual pub and I can see why it would not be to everyone's tastes. The bar has the feel of a local's town centre pub and the bar itself is quite small. This wasn't a problem on the night we visited...More
