Spread over five floors, Market House will boast an all-day cafe, a more formal restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner, an evening wine bar, a food lab and flexible meeting spaces.

The venue’s menu will reflect the cultural connections that Market House stems from, with modern British dishes sitting alongside Asian-influenced plates. Meanwhile on the drink front, there will be crafted wines, gins, beers, locally-roasted coffee and a diverse list of teas.

The owners say they have carefully designed the menu to allow hand-selected, predominantly local, ingredients to shine.

General manager Bill said: “Market House will offer a warm and welcoming space with good food and great wine at the heart of our offering. We want people to come and enjoy a nice time over a comforting meal. Consider us your home-from-home.
