I have eaten here many times over the past few years and have never been disappointed. There are very few tables and the service has always been very good as has the food. Would definitely dine here again.

Very busy after work destination so book a table if you want to eat early evening. Had a table upstairs and very well looked after. Good choice of beers. Opted for simplicity of fish and chips, very tasty with a pale ale.

We popped in for a drink and quick bite before a movie and had a really good experience. Best burger and pie we’ve eaten in ages. All home made. This place does classic British pub food really well. Great airy space and good vibe too....More

A very nice place with very friendly members of staff. The air conditioning is working very well, which is ideal in hot weather. The prices are moderate.

Description
A hidden gem in Shepherd Market, a lively area off Piccadilly once discovered never forgotten, the same goes for our quicky elegant pub, with freshly cooked food and a friendly team to help you decide what to drink from our unique drinks range, and tell you the tales of the area. The Market Tavern has been a pub from 1883, it did burn down and was rebuilt in the 1930's.Shepherd Market was the site for the 1st Maypole and orginally was a market where farmers bought their livestock to sell and attend the May Fair, in the 1800's Edward Shepherd had the idea to build it into a little village area.This has been a lively risque area since the days of King Charles 1 when he housed his mistresses in the market area.
