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.

    We went to the market bistro last night for our 40th wedding anniversary and this is the 4th or 5th time we have been and we love it. We were given complimentary petit fours which were delicious. I asked Lucy if we could take our cheese and biscuits home and everything was packaged superbly including the delicious honey truffle.

    We went to celebrate my wife's birthday. The food was outstanding. I had the Suffolk lamb for my main course and I didn't want to eat the last piece because that would mean there was no more left! Service was excellent as ever and considering the quality of the food, it was not overpriced. We're already planning pour next visit!

    A superb meal and experience. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable on the food and drink and were happy to engage in conversations about both the food and drink and the latest plans for the neibouring property they have taken over. Quality of the food was amazing and both myself and partner thoroughly enjoyed it. They picked up that it was my partners birthday and provided 4 mini desserts with a candle as a gift. We will certainly be returning in the future.

    I went with my other half on a Thursday night, it was busy but not too busy. The service was really friendly, The food was fantastic. I started with beautifully cooked quail and decided on the Lamb as the main course. My partner loved her salmon starter and was positively purring as she tucked into her main course, she chose the pork. very pleasant evening. One piece of advice; Book on line. I found it very difficult to get through on the phone, so I logged on and booked in seconds.
