I have drink & eaten here plenty of times over the years. The staff is very welcoming (Sonia & Rafael) and the food is very good with no surprises. Fantastic place to meet up with friend after work. Highly recommend!

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....

Neighborhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
