We were spoiled for choice with the many fine restaurants in Cork but I’m glad we chose this one. Market Lane doesn’t take bookings - they don’t need to. The place was full at 6 30 and we thought it maybe too busy and noisy...More

Market Lane is an award winning restaurant and bar over two floors that offers great food, amazing value and friendly service always. Where possible we use ingredients from The English Market and local artisan producers to make up our menu which has a wide range of fish, salads, meat, game and sandwiches, in addition to coeliac and vegetarian dishes and a healthy kids menu. We brew our own beer next door, have a coffee blend exclusive to us and use herbs from our greenhouse. Take a virtual tour or make a booking on our website.
