Cosy pub with good food and friendly staff. Near bus stop and historic Town Hall. Has a fire in winter. Very old building with low beams.

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.

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.
