#6 of 219 Irish in Cork
Certificate of Excellence2016 - 2019 Winner

Mentioned in

Market Lane is an award winning restaurant and bar over two floors that offers great food, amazing value and friendly service always. Where possible we use ingredients from The English Market and local artisan producers to make up our menu which has a wide range of fish, salads, meat, game and sandwiches, in addition to coeliac and vegetarian dishes and a healthy kids menu. We brew our own beer next door, have a coffee blend exclusive to us and use herbs from our greenhouse. Take a virtual tour or make a booking on our website.

This restaurant serves very healthy food, well presented and is excellent value. The staff are friendly and efficient. There is an additional floor upstairs so don't be put off if it looks full. It is very popular and deservedly so.

Good management saved the day Found the menu a bit bizarre , but in essence the flavour and presentation were up to standard. A saucey 5.50 for 4 pieces of bread with dips which were in hindsight - dull, was perhaps an insight into the...More

The food is outstanding. Service exceptional and great value. They don't take bookings for small parties (under six), but just leave your name and number, head off for a jar and they'll ring when table is ready.

Went here recently again after receiving a gift voucher and was reminded how wonderful Market Lane is! The chicken supreme dish is superb and my husband was blown away by his steak. The chocolate brownie for dessert was simply decadent! It's a better option for...More

There is a separate vegan menu. Ask your server when you arrive, it’s a really nice menu, not just an after thought like the vegan option is in some places.
