We ventured there for lunch on Saturday to give its food a whirl, spurred on by a sneaky Groupon voucher purchase a few months ago.
The Groupon deal was for a meat and treats platter, served with a couple of glasses of wine and some coffees. The platter means you can try a couple of the sharing dishes on the menu, including the breads with oil and balsamic, cheese, meats and chutneys, and humous, babaganoush, slow roasted tomatoes and olives. It was a good tasting plate, and I was a particular fan of the babaganoush and humous, both of which were rich with garlic and lemon. The oil was a Yorkshire oil rather than olive, and a little tasteless, but that was a very small part of the overall meal. The wines were nice, as were the double espressos so it was a good lunch all in.
Dock Street Market also sell a selection of sandwiches, salads and other deli treats, including a very delicious looking range of cakes. They also have a bread counter for fresh sourdoughs and an interesting selection of draught beers. I'll definitely head back for a few afternoon drinks at some point and to sample some more of the menu and would recommend others do the same.

|The slow roasted tomatoes, which had a deep, rich flavour|
|Babaganoush. It turns out Joe is not a fan of aubergines, whereas I am...how will we ever get over this?!|
|The chutneys, including one which tasted just like mince pies|
|Me enjoying my wine and my papers - a perfect Saturday!|
|Joe really enjoying his wine - a good noseful there!|
|The double espresso - a much needed, very tasty, caffeine kick|
