About Market Restaurant


Market Restaurant’s private dining room, 42D Downmarket, is the perfect place for an intimate evening of tapas. The space, which can host up to 22 guests, lies below the restaurant, boasting its own bar and sound system. This makes it ideal for private celebrations as well as lunches or dinners, although you certainly won’t want to miss out on the delicious tapas. In 42D Downmarket, the chef’s selection set menu is the main offering and covers all the highlights from the kitchen at a very agreeable price per head. There are vegan and vegetarian versions of the menu and allergies can be catered for as well.

Start off your private meal with a glass of local Sussex sparkling wine, either Fitz ‘Prosecco’ or Charles Palmer, or go Spanish with some cava instead. Elsewhere you’ll find beers imported from Spain, sherries and soft drinks, all carefully selected to match the food menu.

A typical set menu for groups here kicks things off with a selection of cold dishes. This might be a tuna tartare, house sourdough with aioli, olives and manchego with jamon, all of which are perfect for snacking on with a drink. Next up: hot dishes like salt cod fritters with caper aioli, croquetas de jamon and chicken pinchos with barbacoa salsa and mojo verde.

From there, you might then enjoy a Sussex Heritage steak board to share. This features the finest local beef, usually Wagyu or Aberdeen Angus, accompanied by potatoes with green sauce and broccoli with kale za’atar. Finally, your dessert might be a traditional Basque cheesecake, perhaps paired with a blackberry sauce.
