We had a great Christmas Jumper lunch and the food and atmosphere was great. The pub feels really festive. Shepherds market is a hidden gem in the middle of Mayfair. My only concern is the pub keep closing, for some reason it closed at 6:00 for 45 minutes then randomly opened again. Then they said that last orders were 9:30... More

We stumbled across this cute/cosy pub on a rainy Saturday afternoon, looking for a pub that was showing the England v All black rugby match. This pub was and had advertisements outside saying watch live sports here. The pub had around 20 people downstairs and 50 up stairs all watching the rugby, there was a good atmosphere. The only problem... More

I've been here with friends a few times. The choice of food is extensive and the quality and value for money is good. There's nothing that really makes this pub above average but you can rely on it for a good value, hearty meal and a place to sit and talk.

We found this pub by accident, sort of got lost in London, so, why not stop in and have a bite to eat, we had a great dinner. Someday when I reurn to the UK, I will stop there again for another meal.

Had dinner at this pub while in London on a work trip, and I was a bit disappointed by the food. Certainly didn't strike me as a "gastropub".

My husband and I ordered the fish and chips.. My fish was hard and chewy, my husband's looked a little more edible. We sat by the window which offered a pleasant view of the street, and some apartments. To eat in the restaurant and not the car you go to the second floor and take note of your table number....

During our London stay in Mayfair, my wife and I have visited this pretty English pub in Shepherd Market twice for dinner which probably indicates that we really enjoyed our meals. The food is very good. The service is efficient and very friendly. The furnishing and atmosphere in the upstairs dining room are very comfortable. I recommend the steak and... More

Busy and buzzing with a great atmosphere and good nibbles even though I would probably avoid a sit down meal.
