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.

Had a lovely 2 course lunch menu here on Valentine's Day. The vintage decor is lovely with the canvas and prints from c1900s Northern Quarter, appropriately themed music inkeeping with the period, friendly service, food was excellent and price was good value for money (£15 for 2 courses, pp). The only comment I'd make for suggested improvements is that the... More

The place is very nice and cosy with nice music. The starter (duck breast) was not nice, the main (steak) was OK. Both were overpriced.

food wasvery good... as was the wine and drinks selection. It is a small restaurant so would not expect a large menu as has been mentioned.Beautifully cooked and presented. Nice atmosphere and whilst some of the decoration finishing in there is not the best, itis dimly lit and lends itself to that french rustic feel. Downside was service is slow,... More

Felt a little strange sitting in what felt like someone's living room. Food was good with plenty of selection, the lamb shank was particularly delicious. Service was not so good. We felt rushed to finish our meals before our plates were whisked away and a couple of the staff were abrupt / borderline rude during what looked like a quiet... More

i am not sure what I was expecting but not this. There was nothing wrong with it but I did feel that I was sat in someone's living room some time back in the 70s. The food was lovely when it eventually came and I can see why it gets such good reviews. The service was polite and attentive but... More

Both my wife and I had a lovely meal at this restaurant. I had the sirloin steak and she had the garlic chicken, both excellent. For deserts we had creme brulée and cheesecake, and it was one of the best cheesecakes I've ever had, a good consistency and because it was goat's cheese it wasn't too sweet. The restaurant is...

Also known as 104 High Street. A small, but interesting choice of dishes with a hint of France, at a reasonable price.
