We were a party of 10 midweek celebrating a family birthday and were more than satisfied with the quality of food and service in a relaxed atmosphere

The food quality here is excellent, you can tell that every dish has been carefully prepared. Slightly more expensive than other local restaurants but you get what you pay for and it's definitely worth the extra. Service is excellent, they can't do enough for you. Lunchtime set menu look like great value for money, looking forward to visiting again soon.

We went there on the spur of the moment knowing nothing about the place and had not booked a table. The 2 courses lunch sounded interesting and was indeed excellent. Service was perfect. I was quite surprised not to see more people having lunch but perhaps the Bistro attract an evening clientele... I think the establishment deserves a better name... More

Many restaurants get a reputation and then get complacent, but not this one. The menu is constantly tweaked a even established dishes are improved. Last night, after a delicious house invented cocktail it was tasty chicken terrine with rosti followed by herbed pollack with white beans and fish velouté accompanied by triple cooked chips. However the piece de resistance was... More

Stumbled onto the Bistro whilst shopping, it looked promising so we tried their £12 lunch menu and were delighted by the quality of the fare, cooking and service. Can't wait to return for dinner!

It's 18 months since we last ate here due to the fact that we usually leave it too late to secure a table, but this time we were treating friends so booked well in advance. The food, atmosphere and service were outstanding. There were 4 of us dining last Friday and we all thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the evening.... More

After eating here many many times it has never let us down, the food has always been to a very high standard and the service has always been spot on. All the staff are very friendly and helpful, even Dave! We have always received a warm welcome and grown to know all the people and slowly becoming a part of... More

Never normally review but just had a lovely meal at the market bistro. Would recommend this restaurant to everyone. The staff are lovely and the waitress Abbie made our experience even more enjoyable. I had the pigeon to start, the beef main, and the chocolate desert. The food was delicious and the presentation was brilliant, could not find any faults!... More

A quick review just to say what an enjoyable meal we had on Saturday evening. The belly and cheek were amazing as were the vegetables. The scotch egg I could see was very well done and my husband happily enjoyed mine as black pudding is not to my taste. Market Bistro has a lovely relaxed vibe about it and we... More
