Had heard many good reviews about this restaurant and I’m happy to say it did not disappoint. The ambiance is nice with simple, contemporary decor. I went for a meal with 5 friends and all of our dishes were 10/10. The monkfish and bearnaise sauce...was so tasty. All the food came at the same time, along with the sides. Would definitely return.More

I eat here on a team meeting for business, the meal was very enjoyable, I ate the fillet which was cooked to perfection. After I got home I realised I only had the credit card receipt insufficient for my company to refund me. I got...in touch with the restaurant and they sent me a digital version which solved the problem. So on top of a create meat great service and great after serviceMore

Really enjoyed our most recent visit to Market Lane. It was hopping on a Tuesday night, which is a testament to its popularity and success. The staff were very attentive, friendly and completely professional. The food was up to its usual excellent standards. I had...the roasted hake which was delicious accompanied by a divine squash, celeriac and potato gratin. The others in our party had steak and monkfish and all were very well pleased. Two of our party had Market Lane brewed beer and stout which they enjoyed very much. Looking forward to next time!More

Clearly busy, but they managed to seat us,and service was attentive. Food competently cooked, but not especially memorable. Better than average, but not very good, say 7/10.

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.
