A good find!

We stopped for morning coffee after a long journey and we're pleased by our choice: hearty sized, tasty scones & teacakes; interesting decor & good loos.

I've dropped in a few times now. Always pleasant but best when the sun is out. Nicely decorated and some good food. It's all about the location for me, has a lovely view across the market place. Everyone is nice who works there, shame they have nowhere to expand to as it can get tight but that's not a criticism... More

It was great. Four of us for a light lunch, one with gluten intolerance. Staff really friendly and helpful. Good food well prepared and served. And the puddings were great. Saw the sunday roast being served and wished I had gone for a heavier lunch. A really great place which I would thoroughly recommend.

We popped in on the offchance on a dreary Sunday afternoon as most other restaurants/pubs not serviing food mid afternoon. Opted for a Sunday lunch. Presentation, taste, volume of food and service was superb - a really pleasant uplift during a dank wet afternoon. Was made to feel welcome and also couldnt believe the bill either. Just over £20 for... More

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
