Reviewed yesterday NEW

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 was good, but we had to ask for Ice to be added to the warm... 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 having beer on tap... amazing! Be sure to play some darts with X-Factor on in... 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 but I can imagine it can get a bit busy at weekends. Inside there is... More

Superb band on. Other pubs moaning about the noise. The band are not too loud they are brilliant. If other local pubs cannot be bothered to put bands on they should not complain. Great atmosphere.

Never been before but it was fab! The bank was excellent but if you didn't fancy watching them all night there were plenty of places you could go to either sit and chill or chat. Will be going again!!

We are two friends who haven't seen each other for many years. We met up in Sandbach yesterday in this lovely pub. The food was really tasty and not expensive, the staff were all friendly and attentive, and we enjoyed some great coffees and soft drinks. We spent a lovely few hours in the Market Tavern and recommend it highly.

Thank jimphillip
