Listed in The Michelin Guide and The Good Food Guide 2017, 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.

    Once again a great evening had at market bistro, the food as ever was really good along with the service.

  • ((((( 12 August 2017 by Chris Hoddy from Kings Lynn

    This is a superb restaurant - intimate without being restrictive and provides an interesting but relatively small menu all perfectly cooked. We were a party of 6 so we tried most of the mains - Pollock, lamb and chicken plus a variety of starters - mackerel, fish cake snack, terrine. There's a lot of attention to detail and imagination at work here and not what you would usually expect in Kings Lynn. Desserts equally good. Staff very attentive and well informed. In short you couldn't fault it!

    Lovely lunch, very controlled technique, clear flavours, interesting combinations. Marsh lamb was particularly good, well flavoured. Generous portions too. Good, short wine list. Welcome emphasis on local sourcing, including a Norfolk vineyard. Relaxed dining rooms but very good, well trained

    Both food and service first class. Would have paid double for a meal of this quality in London.
