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

Our first time in this restaurant and it more than lived up to our expectation. Very welcoming and accommodating. Menu was of excellent quality and you could tell the owners really cared about the food/drink they served. We had three courses each and the portion size was perfect, we both left feeling very full. From start to end, every mouthful... More

Foraged food specials compliment the main menu in a really interesting way here. I was totally impressed. Pea pannacotta was really delightful, pollock with samphire and buttery sauce was delicious. I didn't really have room for desert but had to try the local cheese which was presented with a beautiful tiny dish of truffle honey. Awesomely awesome. We had a... More

Picked out because of other reviews and it certainly didn't disappoint. Smallish menu but plenty of good options. Run by a very capable couple who chef and front of house. Nice house wines by the carafe. Will certainly visit again if back in the area

Booked online, given the table we wanted. Outstanding service and conversation with all the waitresses without it being intrusive. Food was extremely tasty and good portions. Ambiance was perfect. Would highly recommend for very good food in a relaxed atmosphere.
