The former Don Pasquale restaurant in Market Square, Cambridge is set to reopen its doors as ‘Market House’ later this month.

Don Pasquale and the 12A members bar above operated on the premises from 1973, and after almost 50 years took the decision not to reopen its doors after the first lockdown period of 2020.

A well-known and enjoyed establishment by both locals and tourists, and even a venue for UK Property Forums’ Cambridge Social event in 2019.

Market House will be set across all five floors and will include an all-day café, a formal restaurant, a wine bar, a food lab and flexible meeting spaces.

Bill Brogan, the general manager 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.

“Sustainability is a core Market House value. The team have worked hard to source food and drink from small, regional businesses where possible and only work with suppliers that can show their commitment to sustainability.”
