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

We dined here twice during our stay in Faringdon. Couldn't fault the food or the service. Even our fussy little daughter was catered for! Highly recommend this lovely little place. We will be back!

We went here for a meal for the first time on Saturday night. I went in first as my boyfriend parked the car and found myself in the little bar area that was already full of people. I was greeted by the owner who immediately made me feel as if I was a special guest she'd be waiting to arrive... More
