For: Good food. Well presented. Against: Poor service. Rude host. One woman trying to serve a party, and full tables in first room on her own. Three courses took over 3.5 hours. Forgot the coffee order. No mints. No prices. No menu. Appalling artwork on all walls. Dreadful French style nudes everywhere. Scruffy furniture.

My partner and I dined here on a Saturday evening and although all tables were full the atmosphere was still intimate for us. The food was wonderful the service superb, all staff were attentive and so friendly. Faringdon is lucky to have a restaurant of this quality.

We hadn't booked and the ante-room was full when we arrived. The hosts were most welcoming and quickly made space available for us. Had a delightful 3-course meal (1/2 portions of some desserts were welcomed as we'd eaten plentifully but didn't want to miss out on the sweeter options!) Remember they're only open on selected evenings so check before you... More

After a very busy day travelling back from London via Oxford where we did not fancy eating out in a noisy generic restaurant we decided to continue our journey on the A420 calling into the charming town of Faringdon . Having no knowledge of where to eat we decided upon the Market Restaurant based on peering through the window and... More

My bridal party and I visited the Market Restaurant the night before my wedding for a girly meal and had such a fabulous evening. The restaurant was cosy and the owner was kind and thoughtful. We had drinks in the entrance room first (bubbles of course!) and were then taken into the main restaurant which is intimate and comfortable. Both... More

My friend and I visited on a Friday night, I phoned a few days before and they said they could squeeze us in which was great, they were very friendly on the phone and this did not change when we arrived. The building is easy to find and very beautiful inside. The staff were brilliant, the host (a very friendly... More

Ten of us visited the MR for our firms annual meal to celebrate summer, having been here around 12 months earlier for the 2013 summer event. As always Jo looked after us impeccably, both professional and friendly, the food and wine was excellent, as was the company. The serving staff were efficient and friendly. A great restaurant. The one downside... More

My wife and I enjoyed outstanding hospitality, excellent service and delicious food on Sat night. Despite a full house the service was impeccable. Book early so you don't miss out.

We visited on a Thursday evening on the off chance they had a table. They did and we had great meals. Farringdon bills itself as a typical English town. Well that may be stretching a point however the Market Restaurant can justifiably claim to be be not just the best restaurant in the town but also, by far, the best... More

Hello, many thanks for your support. This was our first day back open, after a little break in Italy finding new recipes. I hope it was not too hectic, as we always take a time to re=acclimatize to the restaurant way of life. Thank you again. More
