My husband and I visited this restaurant for dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary - we made a reservation in person while in the area for a mini break - after reading such positive reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed! I cannot fault anything - from the friendly, informative and attentive staff to the beautifully presented delicious food... More

My friend and I met here for an informal lunch. Daily specials and a good selection on the main menu. We had the chicken dish and fish pie. Beautifully cooked and presented, followed by the strawberries and panacotta, also well presented. I would highly recommend this as a friendly and well served venue.

My boyfriend and I made a reservation a few weeks in advance after reading the Trip Advisor reviews. It was well worth it. We arrived a little late after taking a wrong turn, but still got seated by a smiling, welcoming hostess who had actually called to make sure we were still coming and were okay. We liked being able... More

Dropped into the Market Bistro while stopping in Lynn after reading the reviews on trip advisor. The outside looks nice however the real pleasure starts after you walk in. Lovely decor, a bright and welcoming layout that was supported by the warm welcome we received from everyone who worked at the bistro. I should recommend the shared charcuterie board, the... More

Really nice decor, food is way above high street average and very good value for gastro type menu. Hands down my favourite place in Lynn, in fact would have to think long and hard about where else is better without trebling the bill.

We were visiting some beautiful estates in the Norfolk area near King's Lynn and got the name of this restaurant in the internet. We arrived shortly before the kitchen's closing, not knowing the kind of food and service we were going to experience. The restaurant looked a bit simple but it was really a very good surprise, for both were... More
