At The Market Restaurant we place an accent on the quality of our ingredients rather than the length of our menu. All preparation of food and cooking is done here on the premises. We avoid convenience pre frozen, pre packed and synthetic products wherever we can and use fresh wholesome foods cooking them in ways that lose as little of their nutrients and flavour as is possible. Wherever possible we source our ingredients from local producers and suppliers. Some guests get it immediately, others unfortunately don't. Our reward is in those guests who recognise the results of our efforts and return again and again.

Nice little place

Me and a few friends visited this place not so long ago. We were the first ones there and were served promptly. The menu, although limited, had a lot of good choice! Id recommend the polenta cakes as it was yummy and everyone was food envious of me. Portion sizes were good and my friends seemed to... read more

Went here with a group on voucher recently. We had heard some favourable reviews about this place so were looking forward to trying it. Went on Good Friday for an early tea. Got there around 4:45 and the place was empty. We had the owner sat in a corner staring at us for a good 10-15 minutes being the only... More

It was late afternoon on Good Friday and the Norhrn Quarter was already busy. In our quest to eat our way through this cosmopolitan area, our focus has been on on the new outlets that we had not visited before. The four we tried were busy so we went to the Marketwih has been around for about 30 years. It... More

There was a 25 minute wait at our preferred restaurant so we tried The Market Restaurant which was just across the street. There was a £15 two course special but it didn't include any sides, steaks were extra and you couldn't have a dessert instead of a starter (oh the rules). The service was slow and not greatly welcoming. The... More

Really like this place. Have been a few times and have never left anything on my plate. Not cheap but well served, tasty and nicely presented. Worth a visit.

Really nice. Early sat evening - frendly staff. bit pricey and not posh at all, but our food was good quality and tasty. didnt leave anything. It was clean and tidy, liked the music and the setting. If you want pretentious, this isnt for you. if you want nice food well cooked, try it.

We went here today on the basis of a Groupon voucher bought for me as a present, previously prebooked the table as required and arrived a little early, but was not a problem. What became a problem seemed to be the fact that we had a Groupon voucher in the first place, and the chap greeting us said he would... More

Great selection of classics and newer flavours on the menu. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Very very different from the standard norther quarter fare and all the better for it.

Dined with a friend for Dinner. Great ambience, warm and friendly staff who provided an excellent service and good food. What more do you want? The decor is interesting, shabby chic, with numerous prints to show the area when there was indeed a Market, together with pictures of well known diners. Service was excellent with staff, in particular Max, going... More
