Bienvenue and welcome to Market Kitchen, a French restaurant in Ashton-in-Makerfield that is making more than a little of a name for itself. Their menu du jour is ever-changing and what we list below is but a sampler – understandably for a restaurant called Market Kitchen, they go to the market, buy what they find freshest and most appealing and then take it to the kitchen, cook it up howsoever they see fit and serve it to you at your table. Thusly, the plat du jour is always the option, ensuring that only the most seasonal, most organic and freshest ingredients are used. You can find them at Numero Un, Rue de Warrington – OK, Warrington Road, as this still Ashton after all – and when you go, you can feel like you’ve moved from Wigan to their more illustrious twin town of Angers. Indeed, amid all the seasonal veg and ingredients, when we last checked there was still a pie on the menu. After all, what else would Wiganers put on a stick and call a kebab? Book a table now.
I had the chicken on crushed potatoes as my main meal and the gravy was delicious - as was the starter and the desert. There isn’t much variety on the menu, only 3 options for each course, but that didnt really matter for us. The service was also impeccable and the restaurant had a very friendly atmosphere. My partner and I will definitely be back!
Lovely lunch as usual, Very good value ,the waitress is very nice and nothing is to much trouble I would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant
Excellent food and fantastic service by the waitress and waiter that looked after us on Friday evening, they couldn’t have done more to make sure that we had a wonderful experience, which we certainly did. Could not recommend this restaurant enough and cannot wait for a return visit 😃
