Description: 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.

This has always been my wife and my favourite place to go and my daughter would always want to join us but have missed out for the last couple of years so decided to take my staff there for our Christmas meal. 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.

I came here for my birthday on a Friday lunchtime and there was another birthday party in the restaurant. I was slightly worried we'd have to wait but the locals who go so regularly started to chat to us and gave us the menu and started to organise drinks. Our orders taken from a wide range of choices and I... More

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.
