“A small lunch party well delighted”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Four of attended for a small lunch party, no booking just popped in, very welcomed with good service and no rush to leave when the meal was ended,.

A wll satisfied group with the menu and service, no rush to leave, all very leisurely and very well looked after.. Brilliant tasty fresh food, all tasting as it should, The puddings were wonderful and do have a coffee.

I would suggest if you do have a chance to visit this Bistro do so at lunch times as well as in the evening,

One son came home for weekend, made a late booking for market bistro, as we had visited last year.
Good lrelaxed atmophere, still quite busy at 8.00pm
Good olives and bread whist choosing meal.
Beetroot soup, exellent, think my son had a prawn
Main courses for our party of three, Fish Pie, Combination of cuts of Pork , Combination of cuts of beef, cant remember the exact names of dishes.
All agreed , very good meal , interesting menu ,lots of local produce.
When asked about some of the components of dishes, waitress, new exactly what was in the dishes.
To sum up, a lot of work has gone into the menus , presentation and quality very good.
Relaxed atmosphere, they let the quality of the food do the talking
Looking forward to next visit

“Fantastic. Five stars.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Having eaten here today we had to leave an account of what a fantastic dining experience we had. With two small children in tow it wasn't hugely busy, nearly the end of service, we were able to sit out of the way of people and not disturbing them. The manager was wonderful, she supplied us with plenty of entertainment for the children and also allowed us to order what can only be described as the best chips we've ever tasted, needless to say they both ate them all up, whilst we decided what we would like to eat. My partner and I ordered the pollock and chicken pie with a side of mustard mash, it was faultless, all prepared on site and all fresh fresh fresh. We wouldn't hesitate to eat her again and are already planning our next visit. Thank you to the two lovely ladies who served us. Great value and well worth the money.

“Excellent, friendly, bistro..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

Came here this evening with my parents as a nice treat. We almost always eat at the White Horse in Brancaster as our defacto 'nice meal out' venue but having read very positive reviews for Market Bistro, I suggested it as an alternative.

I can't fault any part of the experience. Every member of the staff was very cheery and helpful, service was efficient, and of course the food was delicious. My parents both had steak based meals and were blown away by just how good it was. Needless to say Market Bistro is now on our restaurant map for the area and we will be back!
