After 23 Christmases at the Market Restaurant, the owners are winding down. So only open on Friday and Saturday. Other times MAY be possible, given time and a bit of luck. However, It is on the market and for sale, so get in quick if you would like to buy it, or if you would like to eat at this wonderful little eatery.

Many thanks to the decrepit chef and his good lady.

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... read 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

As always great welcome, great atmosphere and great food. Note to self - don't leave it so long... More

We had a big 0 birthday party at the Market Restaurant on New Year's Eve. Thank you to the owners who made it such a memorable evening.. We had a room of our own, beautifully decorated for Christmas. Everyone enjoyed their meal and it was an evening to remember. Thank you Market Restaurant.
