Harden's says

Altrincham's listed market hall dates back to 1879; after a revamp in 2014 it's now Market House, home to six food kitchens (including Tender Cow, La Cucina and Wolfhouse Kitchen), working alongside original market stalls. Eat communally at long wooden tables; the development also includes an outdoor covered market of semi-permanent food stalls (New Market Square) and seasonal outdoor pop-up stalls and markets.

Run by Nick Johnson and wife, this reinvented Victorian hall embodies “the very best type of market regeneration”, and is now “ringed with excellent, varied food and drink outlets” (not least pizza gods Honest Crust). It has “caused a big restaurant revival in surrounding streets” since launch – the only problem being that the “buzzy” spot is “sometimes too crowded for its own good”.

A rare beacon amid tales of the death of the high street, the “vibrant” regeneration of Alti’s covered market – which dates back to 1290, and has been reinvented in recent years by local lad Nick Johnson – is heartening indeed. It’s now “a very exciting place to eat”, with a “massive choice of different food” under its Victorian roof – including noted sourdough pizza purveyors Honest Crust, who occupy Market House, the new market’s centrepiece.

"Novelty has gone but it’s still doing well and holding up standards. Doesn’t feel good value though."

"truth is I can't rate food and service. ignore these scores as we weren't able to order. we went early evening Saturday. a busy time. in the past everyone made space and shared tables. something may have changed as it was more of a battle with "sharers" actively trying to get us off the table so they could have it themselves. we'd arrived first - through the doors just ahead of them. but they'd "been waiting for ages". is the tipping point coming- getting fed up of pushy people and prices? it'd be a huge shame if that was the case. but for us, we will probably head to the Indies around the market, as I know others are.
