After seeing this restaurant no 1 on trip advisor thought we would visit. We have been many times before and have always enjoyed the food. This restaurant deserves its status, great choice of starters, mains, desserts, good wine selection. The food is always seasonal, with a fantastic specials board. Last night we had the pig cheek starter with a celeriac... More

OK, so the title of my review is not original, but the menu certainly is. And the quality of the (locally sourced) produce is high and the service is good. 4 of us were lucky enough to get a table at short notice and we had an excellent meal. I am sure that we'll be back.

We were amazed and delighted to find such a slice of quality in the centre of Kings Lynn with unassuming frontage but a whole bazaar of delights and taste experiences inside. We all had the roast beef which was cooked overnight in a sous-vide and tasted like well roasted beef but with the texture of butter, moist, pink and totally... More

We went in on a weekend evening as two couples. The food was well presented with a good choice, plenty of veggie options. The emphasis is on good quality tasty food rather than bulk. Table service was just right and plenty of room to ensure a nice atmosphere.

Despite all the noise outside as the saturday market was being dug up, the Market Bistro has a welcoming atmosphere, attentive staff and chefs that can cook! Have dined here on a number of occasions and am pleased to say that the high standards are maintained. Meals are well presented, good portion size and rarely need aditional condiments. Recommended.

What a super place! A lovely warm welcome (run by the husband and wife team of Lucy in the Front of House and Richard as the Chef) and very tasty food - everything is local produce and the bread is freshly-baked onsite. Each dish was beautifully presented and tasted as good as it looked. We pigged out on 3 courses... More

I had pollock, my wife chicken stuffed with tarragon mousse. Both hugely enjoyable with a NZ white sauvignon reasonably priced. Only downside was the pollock lacked taste despite accompanying jus trying its best still very bland. Rest of the food excellent

Just got back from a this restaurant, I had the beef which was melt in the mouth, with crispy but soft inside roast potatoes, a beautifully risen yorkshire pudding, lovely fresh vegetables which included, baby beets, cabbage, fennel, runner beans and kohlrabi served together with the most delicious gravy...Mmmmm. I then had a coconut sponge served with licorice ice cream... More

To be honest, we overheard a couple in our favourite restaurant extolling the virtues of the Market Bistro so we were determined to give it a try. The crab starter was great and my girl friends Pollack main was equally good. My beef two ways was nice but very stodgy, the vegetables were gorgeous. The puddings were utterly divine, I... More

We'd planned a trip to Norfolk and I was tasked with booking Sunday lunch, I popped onto Trip Advisor to see what restaurants people suggested were worth a visit. I instantly decided on Market Bistro after reading a couple of reviews of other restaurants. Glad I did, the staff are so friendly and welcoming, the restaurant has a homely feel.... More
