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.

    The Market Bistro is our favourite restaurant, my husband and I dine at it several times a year. It is always a treat with excellent food and services. The food is imaginative, with new combinations of flavours and textures which are a delight to savour. The ever changing menu always has 2 interesting cocktails to choose from to start the meal with.

    Have dined here before and have always been pleased. I fpund the wooden backed chairs uncomfortable.the starters cpuld have been less cpol in temperature. Sauce with the bream was a bit sharp. Sauce with beef also seemmed a bit put oflace. But it is good that there shpuld be experimentation and surprise. Always love the little amus bouche.

    So far we have enjoyed three fantastic meals at the Market Bistro in Kings Lynn Norfolk. Our dining experience there has been superb. The restaurant is tastefully decorated with a relaxing ambience and discreet classy music. The waiting staff are excellent and very professional; being welcoming, attentive and friendly. Their perfectly pitched introductions to the courses are a delight and an extra bonus of enjoyment to the overall experience. They also make very helpful and balanced suggestions as to preferable wines to embellish the food. The food itself is delicious, cooked and presented to an extremely high standard. Our meals have been nothing short of a culinary joy. An excellent Chef of the highest quality. We have found the Market Bistro to be a unique dining experience in the King's Lynn and surrounding West Norfolk area. The food, service and surroundings cannot be faulted. The Market Bistro also provides great value which makes this experience affordable and allows for frequent visits. The restaurant itself is situated in the charming historical part of town which also adds to the experience.
    We have now made the Market Bistro our 'go to place' for an afternoon or evening meal. Thank you.
