I have been to this restaurant a number of times and am at a complete loss to understand the bad reviews. We have been on at least 7 occasions and the food has been very good and the service friendly. The meals are well presented. My Mum is an elderly widow who sometimes goes here for lunch. She always is made to feel welcome and included rather than alone

Very friendly staff, and we choose the selection of puddings, which were fantastic.

My partner and I have visited the Market Bar on many occasions and have never been disappointed, be it for an evening out or a relaxed Sunday lunch and at all times have found the food to be beautifully presented, sumptuous to eat and served with a great deal of finesse. The owner has a good knowledge of wines and this is reflected in his cellar. We do also try other restaurants in the surrounding areas but for us, we find that the Market Bar cannot be beaten!!!

My husband and I eat out regularly and the Market Bar is one of our favourite places. The reason for this is that it is one of the few eating places in the area that truly offer you a great 'dining experience'. You get the whole package - great food, excellent service and a very cheerful and welcoming couple who are very professional and go out of their way to ensure you have a wonderful dining experience. They are also one of the few restaurants that offer Prosecco by the glass! Other restaurants would be wise to follow suite.
