Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great little restaurant overlooking the market but with the most amazingly written wine list , although not overly extensive every wine has a very descriptive summary written by the owner , who we spoke to and who was clearly very passionate about his food and...wine. Well worth a visitMore

The husband and wife team behind this latest gem on the Cambridge restaurant scene really breathe heart and soul into this restaurant. From the genuine warmth of the welcome to the unstinting attention to visual detail in the presentation of the food and physical environment...to the balanced and fresh menu, the 360 experience is a sensual delight on every level. There is nowhere like it, a unique and delightful dining experince in the best location of Cambridge, with views onto Senate House, Great St Marys Church and the bustling market square. Take my credit card and just go!More

My colleagues and I recently shared an excellent experience in the private dining room. Beautifully decorated room with long dining table and casual sofa seating. Food was enjoyed and well presented.

Delicious food, brilliantly prepared and thoughtfully presented and served. Tempting vegetarian and vegan choices as well as fish and meat options. Good advice on wine choices and interesting non-alcoholic cocktails. We will have to return to taste more of this wonderful food. Big thanks to...all at Market House it was a fantastic meal.More

I don’t often write reviews however my husband and I stumbled upon one of our new favourites in Cambridge last week! The restaurant is divided into two cuisines with a modern menu and Asian menu (which we opted for). The food was all amazing with...our favourite being the pork belly, which is to die for. All super fresh and provided by local suppliers as informed by our waiter. Service was fantastic which made the overall experience better. The young man certainly has a great deal of charm and humour and we will certainly be visiting again (especially with our free wine token!)More

This was disappointing. We paid fine dining prices for adequate cooking. Somehow none of the food had the 'wow' factor, and the wine list is very expensive. Service was charming if a trifle naive. Overall I don't think we'll be returning.

Schedule was overrun that day which ended up in a late dinner. Not knowing where to go, I quickly did a search on nearby restaurants and found this "Market House" restaurant which was just next to the open central market place that opens on weekends...(or Sundays?). The restaurant was situated on the basement and once we walked in, it had a completely different vibe. Like exploring into a cave, we were seated at a small table in between the main dining room and the bar/kitchen serving area. I quite enjoyed the setting as it was like having a private dining area ourselves. At that time of the evening (ard 9ish), there weren't many customers in the restaurant but yet I didn't feel the whole environment was too empty. The burrata appetizer we had were served in small pieces, which was different from the usual uncut form. I also had the rump of Norfolk lamb which was more tender than I expected. Overall, a very nice dinner!More

A great evening. The food was stunning, the service exceptional and the decor was very stylish. We had a lovely meal with all of the servers being very attentive . The menu was small, but varied with an excellent wine list. Would definitely recommend.

A wonderful place for a date on a Friday night. We enjoyed the house red, delicious starters (arancini and whipped goats cheese), perfect mains (mushroom wellington and duck), and shared a delightful sticky toffee pudding. The mains were a little slow arriving, which we hardly...noticed, but the service team were very apologetic and made things right. The service overall was brilliant and attentive.More
