About 28 Market Place

Located in a Grade-2 listed building in the heart of Somerton, 28 Market Place is a modern European restaurant that champions the best of West Country produce. Like Osip in Bruton and Holm in South Petherton, 28 Market Place is part of a new restaurant wave in Somerset, looking to work with local producers to creative diverse, delicious, sustainable food. As a result, many of 28 Market Place's suppliers are located within two miles of the restaurant, whether that by Ivy House Dairy in nearby Beckington or Plotgate CSA - a community-supoprted agriculture project in Somerton itself.

The restaurants is beautifully decorated - light pours in through the conservatory-style glass roof, and there's an abundance of greenery cascading from the ceiling, which gives the dining room an orangery vibe. Rattan lamps hang at different levels, and patterned floor tiles reflect a spectrum of greens, adding to the organic vibe of the space.

Handling the menu is Dan Fletcher, who, like Merlin Labron-Johnson at Osip and Nicholas Balfe at Holm, has exited London's concrete jungle for Somerset's greener pastures. He's worked with Tommy Banks at The Black Swan at Oldstead, and was part of an all-star kitchen team at The Square with Phil Howard, before making a name for himself as head chef of Fenchurch Sky Garden. It's clear that Somerset has a star chef on it's hands here, and that only becomes more evident with the menu.

Starters include salmon tartare with pickled beetroot, cucumber and horseradish, and Pitney Farm hen's egg with wild leek veloute and chanterelles, and the mains are similarly elegant - try the saddle of Cornish lamb, coal-roasted celeriac and rosemary yoghurt, or white asparagus and aged Parmesan tagliatelle. 

There's also a Sunday lunch set menu on offer, not to mention the in-house Market Bakery, which makes bread and pastries, filled sourdough doughnuts and homemade ice cream daily.
