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.

    As always the menu was excellent, locally sourced and all seasonal. The atmosphere in the restaurant was just as as Bristro should be and very relaxing.
    This is truly an oasis in the town, and well worth a visit

    Excellent and attentive service from booking, through a warm reception, top class meal, until we departed. We are regular customers and will return!

    presented. Vg attention to all small
    details. Up to high expectations set by FT write-up. Loved my Cromer Crab starter! Wine list nicely balanced and sensibly priced.

    I have been here a few times and have always raved about it to others but last nights meal was lovely but not as good as the previous visits
    Smaller portions than before and nothing tempted any of the 5 of us to choose a dessert
    Bit disappointed
