One of Cambridge’s most iconic buildings has been given a dramatic makeover, and is now welcoming guests for dining, working and relaxing
Its former incarnation as Italian eatery Don Pasquale now a distant memory, Market House is spread over five floors of Grade II listed grandeur, with large windows offering impressive views over the Market Square, Senate House and Great St Mary’s Church. At the helm is Cambridge resident Bill Brogan – whose CV includes Michelin-starred Le Talbooth – and his wife Jinzhao Li, who has worked in the education and culture sectors in China and the UK for over two decades.
The food reflects this multicultural foundation, with modern British fare alongside pan-Asian plates. Drinks-wise, expect a smorgasbord of tea, artisan coffee, gin, wine and beer, while the roll call of local suppliers includes Stir Bakery, The Saffron Ice Cream Company, Cambridge Cheese Company and lots more.
“Market House will be a warm, welcoming space, with good food and great wine at the heart of our offering,” comments Bill. “We want people to come and enjoy a nice time over a comforting meal. Consider us your home from home.”
With alfresco dining on the square, wine bar, all-day cafe, ‘food lab’ and flexible meeting and working spaces, we can see this venue becoming a huge hit in the months to come. Watch this space!
