Listed in the Michelin & Good Food Guide 2018, and Harden’s Best UK Restaurants 2018, Market Bistro is a restaurant that consistently champions simple British cuisine. The menu offers an array of delicious choices that reflect the seasons and the very best of Norfolk produce. Owners Richard & Lucy have created a friendly and laid-back dining experience in the heart of this charming market town.

Everything is made from scratch in the bistro’s kitchen, even down to Richard’s own recipe sourdough and homemade butter. His food mixes the traditional with unique combinations of flavours and textures. According to a review by Tim Hayward of The Financial times: “his handling of local ingredients was nothing short of outstanding”.

Market Bistro offers an excellent value set lunch menu as well as a 5-course tasting option, making it a great spot for a quick bite or a more leisurely experience. The drinks offering is a celebration of local spirits and wines, with carefully crafted cocktails featuring handmade syrups and cordials.

With attractive period features and beautiful views of King’s Lynn Minster, this great little find is just an 11-minute walk from King’s Lynn railway station.

    Very nice small restaurant, good and tasty food served by a competent team.
    Unfortunately I was taken aback by the arrival of the group of four guests with four dogs.
    I didn’t know that Market Bistro in the middle of the historic town is a dog friendly restaurant.

    It was fantastic. Wonderful food especially my lamb. Very helpful staff who were particularly good with my husband who is fussy! They did a chicken dish just for him. Delicious white wine from South Africa. First class and we are very lucky to have this restaurant near us.

    Very attentive & polite staff. Top class food as always. My sister & her husband were visiting from Cambridge & they were very impressed

    The meal was delicious and all four of us enjoyed the evening very much indeed. Service was exemplary - attentive without being intrusive, and the dishes we chose were inventive “takes”on familiar-sounding dishes. The Bistro is an old building and the internal layout of the dining area provides a degree of privacy for each table. The lighting is rather low and two of us “oldies” found that difficult. Quite the best dining experience we’ve had in Norfolk.

    All the good things we had read about the restaurant were true. This was our golden wedding anniversary and having now experienced the Market Bistro realise it was the ideal place to celebrate.
    The service was excellent and the food superb.We will certainly come again but probably not for our next Golden Wedding anniversary!
