This beautiful 16th century market house, which is now called Market Bar & Bistro, is situated in the center of historic Somerton.

The Market Bar & Bistro is a perfect meeting place for drinks or enjoying a relaxed meal in beautiful surroundings and a lovely atmosphere. All our food is locally sourced and homemade. Whether you choose to sit in our Bamboo room, which is a lovely sunny room and perfect for larger bookings who want their own private party, or our beautiful dining room or even outside watching the world go by.

Monday – Friday lunchtimes we have a 2 course menu for £9.95 which consists of a starter and main or main and desert.

Every lunchtime and evening we have a specials fish board.

Irrespective of where you choose to park your bottoms, we offer honest, unfussy food & drink.

Enjoyed a well prepared meal with excellent service. A great improvement since the Market House changed hands. The prices were reasonable for the quality of the food which was beautifully prepared and served. Will return again in the future.

Just popped in on the off chance as we were in the area and could not have been more delighted! Guinness was perfect and the meal itself was just divine. We had to wait a short while for the table so might be better to book. Well worth a visit.

Had a look at menu outside and decided to try the lamb, which was cooked perfectly the veg all fresh ( no frozen food reheated here) the staff very helpful and the puddings all home made, (not the icecream ) the cheesecake was delightful.
