Our first visit and it didn't disappoint. Very welcoming hostess-bright and vivacious Brazilian lady who made us feel at home and spacious welcoming space. Although pricey, it was well worth it as a special treat. I had the crispy egg with goats cheese for starters...More

My friend and I visited the Market Place on Wednesday 2/8/17. We would have liked to have gone there earlier but it's not open in the evenings from Sunday to Tuesday. It's an easy place to find, being located on the main street in Cowbridge,...More

Enjoyed a fab meal here on a Friday evening. Really good and pleasant service. Good menu and tasty well presented food. Prices towards high end but far from extortionate. Nice vibe. We look forward to our next visit.

Our restaurant is set in one of the most historic buildings in the beautiful town of Cowbridge, and exudes a timeless atmosphere. In winter we continue the old traditions with our warming log fires, and summer brings outdoor dining in our lovely walled garden. We offer a wide variety of freshly prepared modern European dishes, locally sourced and carefully arranged by classically trained chefs. We offer a fixed price lunch menu, £16.95 For two courses, and an "Early Supper" menu served from 18:00 - 18:55 Wed. - Fri. Which at £17.95 offers a great value way to sample our fantastic food or if you prefer we also have our fantastic Ala Carte menu .The Market Place has become a bye-word for the best in food, dining and ambience.
