The perfunctory name and bare, urban-rustic interior are reminders that Market is all about directness and no-frills satisfaction. The kitchen takes pride in its ingredients, and the blackboard lists daily specials such as a braised mutton shoulder with mash and carrots – soft, tender meat with a cracking sauce made from the braising juices. A pithily titled starter of ‘cockles, chorizo, samphire’ packs a punch, lemon sole with fat chips and tartare sauce is a typical main course, and a canny combo of pannacotta, figs and pistachios turns up among the desserts. The set lunch is a bargain tenner for two courses, and the commendable wine and beer list promises good drinking. Market’s lack of showiness extends to the fixtures and fittings, with zinc-topped tables, adult-sized back-to school chairs and an approachable, friendly vibe.
