This is the second time I have eaten at the Market Restaruant and both times have had an excellent meal.
The couple who run the place clearly enjoy being there and it's great to be treated and served by people who serve you because they want to rather than because their making little more than minimum wage.
I had the lamb which was well prepared (slightly pink which is my preference) and a nice amount of veg to go with it, Sarah had the Duck which was just falling beautifully off the bone. We also had two friends with us who also had the Lamb and another dish (forgot what it was).
Then to dessert, we ordered four desserts and a cheesecake for the table (yes I know - but it's rude to leave the table out :)
The cheesecake was not to my liking (set rather than baked), but everyone is different. I had the sponge pudding with custard - one of my pet hates is watery runny custard, I want something thick that actually feels like you have a pudding in your mouth rather than a drink and I have to say, I was not disappointed, lovely sponge and great custard.
Where I did feel things were let down a little was the ice cream, after paying such attention to the service, preperation of the meal, the ingredients and presentation, would an extra couple of pounds per tub of ice cream have really gone amiss??? What was served tasted cheap and course in texture and sadly was not a reflection on the rest of the meal.
Overall a great evening and lovely people, but consider cream rather than ice cream if going for a pud.

Thanks for ALL your comments, we really do appreciate feedback. Glad you enjoyed your visits. Regarding the cheesecake, we are now back to the baked type, I think for your last visit, I had been asked to make a 'Gluten free' cheesecake specially for someone, which although some liked and appreciated, I also was not a fan either..

Also, the big ice-cream debate.., natural vanilla or plain, natural white or yellow, vanilla seeds or not. Cornish, Italian, local. We tend to use (not make) a good quality but not strong flavor variety, to use as an accompaniment to the puddings. This normally seems to work out OK. However, It could have been that if you came during THAT weird week, when we just ran out of everything, we just had to run down to the local market and get something like 'Walls' or whatever. (not out of choice).
Anyway, many thanks.
