Listed in The Michelin Guide and The Good Food Guide 2016, the rustic Market Bistro in King’s Lynn showcases the best of Norfolk’s local produce. From Cromer crabs and Brancaster mussels to its own freshly baked bread, Market Bistro offers regional and seasonal specialities, as well as a high-quality children’s menu and exquisite wine.

Offering light bites and substantial mains, the Market Bistro menu starts with mackerel fillet with oickled cucumber and cauliflower soup with bacon, mushroom, quail egg and ketchup.

Free range chicken with liver parfait and truffle custard, and slow-cooked pork belly with apple and vanilla are among the meaty mains, while fresh fish dishes include line-caught sea bass with black garlic puree. For pudding, try dark chocolate parfait with caramelised white chocolate mousse, or an indulgent British cheese board.

With attractive period features, and outdoor dining on the terrace, everything on the menu at Market Bistro restaurant is freshly made on the premises. King’s Lynn Train Station is an 11-minute walk away.

    Ate here for lunch, everything was 5 star. The venison was excellent as was the apple pie! Booked on line via the Bistro's web site.

    Excellent cooking, adequate service, restaurant lacking ambiance as no other clients in the rather gloomy main room

    Very good attentive service. The waiting staff had a good knowledge of the menu. Lovely flavoursome food. Wonderfully cooked to perfection. Venison fillet was so tender. Very friendly welcome & a great atmosphere in the restaurant. Definitely will be going back.

    A fantastic meal. Exceeded our expectations. The pork belly was to die for!

  • ((((( 27 November 2016 by Sharon from Kings Lynn

    All three courses were enjoyed by our party of four. Flavours and tenderness of meat was exceptional.

    Does get noisy in the restaurant which makes it difficult for those wearing hearing aids.

    My brother and I dined here in celebration of his birthday. The food was superb and the staff were kind and attentive. We will definitely be revisiting. At £17 for a two course lunch this is a mid-price restaurant.

    The restaurant is tastefully decoratedecorated and presentation of the food was excellent. The food was delicious, with small but perfectly sufficient portions and enhanced by a couple of complimentary tasters. The best thing of all was the service:unobtrusive, but very friendly. I was particularly touched by the mini birthday cake and candle for my dad.
