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.

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.

My wife and I visited last Saturday night; we'd been meaning to try the Market Restaurant for ages and finally got round to it. The atmosphere and decor were very pleasant and the menu was varied but I was struck by the prices which seemed a little high. We ordered starters and main courses, no desserts, and a bottle of...

Visited this restaurant for lunch today (12/11/14) with a good friend. We were very happy with the table allocated to us but the restaurant was well set out and any table would have been fine. Service was excellent, very friendly, professional and welcoming. Food was tasty, well presented and great value (we had the lamb and fish dishes) I would... More

We went here on the Groupon Sunday lunch deal. We were the only ones in the restaurant which was both nice but concerning at the same time. The restaurant decor is nice, service was not bad but the server failed to properly explain the voucher offer forgetting to mention the option of soft drink instead of wine and that a... More

We arrived shortly after midday to find an overwhelming stench of bleach/cleaner! We were advised that they had just cleaned the floor, hence the smell.We asked that a door be opened to ameliorate this. Waiter was fine & did so, but the manager/owner was very begrudging and eventually told us he wanted to close the door. He said they don't... More
