The Original Northern Quarter Restaurant
This restaurant was one of the oldest and most well known independent restaurants in Manchester. Set in Manchester's Northern Quarter, it was the original and we believe the finest eating experience in the area.
At The Market Restaurant we placed an accent on the quality of our ingredients rather than the length of our menu. All preparation of food and cooking was done on the premises. We avoided convenience pre frozen, pre packed and synthetic products wherever we could and used fresh wholesome foods cooking them in ways that lost as little of their nutrients and flavour as possible. Wherever possible we sourced our ingredients from local producers and suppliers.
The Restaurant's shabby chic interior may have sparked memories of times gone bye, remaining a tribute to Manchester's old Smithfield Markets as well as providing a home for authentic memorabilia. The walls were covered with photos of well known patrons and Manchester of the past. Some guests got it immediately, others unfortunately didn't. Our reward was in those guests who recognised the results of our efforts and returned again and again.
