Description: Our restaurant is set in one of the most historic buildings in the beautiful town of Cowbridge, and exudes a timeless atmosphere. In winter we continue the old traditions with our warming log fires, and summer brings outdoor dining in our lovely walled garden. We offer a wide variety of freshly prepared modern European dishes, locally sourced and carefully arranged by classically trained chefs. We offer a fixed price lunch menu, £14.95 For two courses, and an "Early Supper" menu served from 18:00 - 18:55 Wed. - Fri. Which, at £14.95, Offers a great value way to sample our fantastic food. From our a la carte menu our starters include Seared scallops with cauliflower puree and black pudding, and our main course specialties include Pan roasted Welsh lamb, from a local farm, Honey glazed pork belly and Pan fried loin of cod. Both the lunch and evening menus can be completed with one of our exquisite desserts, including favourites such as hot chocolate fondant with chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream. The extensive and carefully chosen wine selection complements each and every dish on our menu, creating a truly outstanding culinary experience. The Market Place has become a bye-word for the best in food, dining and ambience.

We haven't eaten here for a while, so decided to try out their lunch menu. We couldn't fault it at all. From the warm friendly welcome, to the lovely ambience, to the friendly professionalism of the staff, we had high hopes for the food and we were not disappointed! We opted for the fixed price lunch which is exceptional value... More

We were very happy to find a place which combines the charm of a very old building, with the ambience of a modern restaurant. All our courses were absolutely delicious. The vegetarian main course, a tower of portobello mushroom, ratatouille and potato, the roast... More

We took my Mother to celebrate her 93rd birthday at The Market Place - it was our first visit and definitely won't be our last. The whole experience was outstanding. The food was stunning, not only with an amazing blend of flavours but so beautifully presented (they so deserve an award). Service by Luke was first class and we appreciated... More

The food here was excellent and very reasonably priced for the quality. The service we received was faultless, friendly and attentive staff and we never felt rushed. Everything was brought out exceptionally quick considering it was Saturday night and quite busy. Our only minor criticism was there is nowhere to have a drink inside if you arrive a bit early...
