Description: 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.

“Great Food!”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

My boyfriend and I opted for the early bird special at Market Lane and it was amazing!! Beautiful food and delicious cocktails - i had the elderflower prosecco, yummy!!! We both had the same mains - the smoked haddock which was unbelievably good and for the desserts we had the mini chocolate cup (literally a cup of chocolate - very rich) and vanilla ice cream which was again gorgeous!! The only downside was that the service varied, our waiter was really rude and made it perfectly clear that we should eat and get out however another waitress was very friendly and made us very welcome! Definitely give it a try, its a really nice spot however we ate there on a Monday and it was nearly full by half 6 so im guessing you'd have to book a table if you're going at the weekend!!

“Delightful”
Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

We actually stopped in a pub down the street. They didnt serve food and suggested Market Lane. Everything was good. Try the Elbow Long stout which is produced for them and a few other restaurants. We enjoyed it more than Guinness. Very pleasant service by the bartender and our server, Liam.

“Excellent night”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

I ate here with a group of friends and we all absolutely loved the food. It has a great atmosphere and the waiting staff were so lovely, even to the point of adjusting a wall picture hanging slightly off centre that was annoying a couple of us 'Monicas'.
Fish dishes here are delicious as are the salads. The only thing we were not overly keen on was the lemon tart which was very tangy.
Overall we had a brilliant night and can't wait to return.
