PLEASE DONT CLOSE!!!

We were struggling for somewhere to eat on a Saturday night with guests and thought we would give it a go. We were sat in a lovely window seat and hadn't even realised we were sat in the bar area rather than the restaurant in the back. It wasn't till we googled the restaurant later that we realised... read more

Hello, , and thank you for such a lovely review. Sadly, we must go, and sadly leave a hole in this wonderful little town. Our chef is ready for the rest-home of life, worn out and broken, (well a bit over the top).. Too much hard word over too long a time, rsi and old age, we will miss it... More

Me and my girlfriend moved to Faringdon in December and have finally had chance to explore our great little town. Market Restauraunt is one of the best dining experiences I have had. Jo and her assistant are the perfect hosts, polite and efficient. The Restauraunt has an amazing feel to it and we will visit again and again and take... More

Whilst in town for a weekend break we picked this one out due to the strength of previous reviews. Well let's just say it was an evening dining experience we will remember for a long time. I will not detail why as this restaurant is now only open on a weekend evening as Jo and her Hubby wind down towards... More

Had dinner for the first time at this restaurant last night and have to say it was amazing. Not only the food, but the service too. Just such a lovely, welcoming place, a real home from home, except their food is a great deal better than mine! Never normally have 3 courses, but did here. Visit, eat, enjoy, you will... More

We have lived in the Faringdon area for over 10 years and have never been to this delightful resturant. What a shame ! We fell in love with this place the minute we walked through the door. We were made so welcome by Jo. It was great to sit and have a drink in the bar and study the exceptional... More

The Market Restaurant has been a favourite for years. Jo and Andy are such welcoming hosts and we are always assured of a very warm welcome. The food never disappoints and there is often a hidden personal touch to the service and food. Diners are never hurried no matter how busy they restaurant is. Absolutely the best place to eat...

We have been eating at the Market Restaurant for many years now and it seldom disappoints. The food is always interesting and the wines are pretty decent. The atmosphere is lively and Jo is a brilliant hostess.

I have just walked in the door after an exceptional meal at the Market Restaurant and felt it appropriate to leave a review. We recently moved to the area and everyone we spoke to couldn't recommend the restaurant more highly. I made a booking request via email & received a very friendly & accommodating response promptly. We turned up to... More

Booked a table for two at the end of January to celebrate moving to the neighbourhood. The restaurant is cute and the hostess was polite and entertaining offering us drinks in the bar area before we were seated. The food itself was gorgeous and there was plenty of selection, I could have quite easily chosen two or three combinations so... More
