Superbly located in the Shepherds Market area of London, this is a great pub with good food, friendly and helpful staff and plenty of atmosphere. We stayed for dinner and the pies were really good. Evidently this pub was featured in the 1950s Alfred Hitchcock movie "Stagefright". This pub is very much a business persons pub so there are lots... More

The location is in Shepherds Market, a nice quaint area of 10+ Pubs and other cuisines, and a short walk from the Sheraton Park Lane on Piccadilly. Food is good, nice beer selections, wine, etc. The steak & ale pie is a must. Fish & Chips good too. It's much nicer atmosphere on the 1st floor vs. 2nd. Kitchen closes... More

The steak was like a chewing gum. You have to order and take all the amenities from ground floor to the first floor. You are served like a fast food chain but they charge at restaurant price. Avoid.

Shepherds Market is a must for visitors to London. The Tavern has lots of history as does the Market.

Warm greeting by both staff. Friendly efficient service with a good choice of "pub" food, beer and wine on the menu, reasonably priced. Shepherds Market is a wonderful hidden gem just behind the busy streets of Mayfair. Highly recommended in all areas but the staff set the pub above all others. Will definitely visit again when next in London. Visited... More

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!

Staying in Mayfair

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.
