Nice atmosphere albeit a bit noisy. Tables are also somewhat cramped. We all felt that the menu was overly complex and quite pretentious. None of us enjoyed our choices very much. Staff friendly and efficient. But won't be back.

Food quality is high. A bit more expensive than average but worth it. Gets pretty busy on weekends. No reservations accepted for groups smaller than six. Few tables outdoors which is nice.

Very friendly staff - couldn’t do enough for us as we were on a keto diet. All great and would recommend for lunch. Not sure about dinner but would suggest it’s worth a visit if you are going to the English market.

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.
