We have long been a customer at the Market Cross,it has always been a friendly place with good food and pleasant atmosphere. They have now employed a new chef, who has taken the food to a different level, both in terms of quality and presentation. It will be interesting to see how he develops the menu over the coming months.... More

We were away for a weekend with our respective elderly mothers and were looking for a suitable cafe/restaurant/bar when we spotted this most attractive building in the market place. Was too cold to sit outside, but inside had been decorated very tastefully to create a genuine period atmosphere. We had very tasty cakes, but the meals being served to other... More

Popped in here for a coffee one Saturday morning. The place was packed downstairs but we were pleased to find a nice table overlooking the market place. We ordered two coffees - cappuccinos and a large teacake to share between us and my word it was large and delicious. We would rather frequent independent coffee shops than chains and this... More

We were passing through swaffham on our way to the north Norfolk Coast and were looking for somewhere for a quick tasty lunch. The cafe looked very attractive from outside and we were not disappointed. A tasty bean burger, pate board, salmon and cream cheese sandwich and a rich tasty macaroni cheese were all enjoyed by our family. Delighted to... More

Another mum and me took our 4 boys out for breakfast on market day in Swaffham for a treat. We had a big table upstairs and all ordered a full English breakfast. It was quick, really helpful staff and the most delicious breakfast . Clean plates all round.

This is an excellent place to go for lunch and the menu is good and varied. The evening menu is different and also very good but the restaurant only opens in the evenings at the week-ends.
