LIKED IT

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.

Whilst the food is undoubtedly excellent quality and well cooked I was disappointed at the menu choice. I struggled to find a main course I would like so ordered two starters. When I enquired if I could have one of the starters, the Chicken Livers, as a larger portion as this was to be my main course, obviously I was... More

Dear Globehog, I read all our reviews personally and respond when I feel my response adds value or answers a question posed. We take all comments seriously and at times like most restaurants we get it wrong, as it appears do reviewers. Our current menu includes neither Chicken Livers, single or double portion, or a Goat's Cheese Tart. Our chairs,... More

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

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

Description

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.
