been twice in the past year or so once as a group of four where I had the best ever starter tomato soup and chocolate brownie for dessert. Then few months later it was disappointing no basics to choose from all a bit too fancy, no soup or descent dessert. So maybe check the menu before you book as it... More

It reminded me of Master Chef. The presentation was superb. And as for the taste I savoured every mouthful. I had the beetroot starter Yummy. Best food I have ever eaten in a restaurant.

I've had lunch quite a few times now and the Market Bistro has never disappointed - ham hock starter, cod and chocolate delice were all superb. The way that chunks of cod flaked off and how it tasted suggested it was both freshly caught and perfectly cooked. A family business I recommend without hesitation

I brought a friend here to eat at lunch and I could have been far flung from King's Lynn!!! I absolutely love this place. If you appreciate exceptional food, the tastes and the presentation that make dishes as such, then book your table here. I love service that isn't in your face unnecessarily, but lets you totally enjoy your dining... More

Could not wait to review this place. Food really tasty, good quality ingredients and well thought out dishes. Staff are also very pleasant which makes for a fantastic meal all round. Saw a couple of reviews that said the portions were small and the restaurant cramped but neither are true. I was too full for desert - the sea bass... More
