Square Meal Review of The World's End Market ?

So famous it gave its name to the district, The World’s End pub, a huge, late-Victorian gin palace, has been transformed into a self-proclaimed ‘innovative culinary concept’ – which translates as a menu of first-rate grilled meat and fish. The handsome interior exudes quality thanks to a mixture of teal, tiles and leather alongside vibrant displays of seafood at the kitchen counter. Sadly, you can’t select ingredients for your meal from here, but we nevertheless enjoyed a delicious dinner. A starter of aubergine, sun-dried tomatoes and goats’ cheese cream overflowed with contrasting flavours, while pink, plump scallops spoke of careful sourcing. Despite side dishes costing extra, main courses (Brixham monkfish, perhaps, or Norfolk chicken breast) represent decent value, and there’s also a succinct menu of burgers for around £10 – including sides of crisp chips and salad. A well-priced range of European wines also makes a trip to the World’s End worthwhile.

  1. I was asked about my cholesterol the other night after my cousin had viewed my site and my so called food diary. I like to think that i eat good food and last night at The World's End Market i definitely did.

    The World’s End Market is located in the iconic building which formerly housed the World’s End pub, originally a tavern during the times of Charles II from which the area gained its name.

    The concept is simple: offering only the very best “market fresh” produce for all day dining, supporting, wherever possible, local suppliers. Clients are encouraged to choose from the resplendent fish and meat...

  1. World's End is this weird place in Chelsea where it's always been a little bit of a thoroughfare and certainly not a huge destination place. Then came Medlar and now arrives The World's End Market making it slightly more of a reason to stop by.

    What was once a bit of an institutional pub has, sadly, for years been left to go a little bit grotty and a few people have tried and failed to make this building alive again. The 'Market' group took over the place and totally redesigned it giving it masses of punter appeal and a bit of 'oomph' as a 1930's, brasserie style, cosy dining room and a fully functional bar/dancing...

  1. The last four weeks have been quiet tough for me as a foodie, as I am on a special diet: the FODMAP diet. The diet means I have to avoid products with lactose, gluten and other little simple pleasures of life for a French girl such as onions, garlic etc...
    I didn't realise before, but eating out could be such a complicated thing for people who have food intolerance. You become the worst nightmare for waiters and chefs as you always have to ask questions and double check ingredients and recipes...For the last few weeks I have avoided restaurants as I was ashamed to be such a pain for restaurant teams. I have eaten...

  1. World's End Market was previously a nineteenth century ale distillery and then a twenty-first century traditional pub, before being refurbished into the exciting new restaurant it is today. The restaurant opened in December 2014 after the success of their sister restaurant The Crystal Palace Market with head chef Bubker Belkhit.

    Located on Kings Road which is historically known for it's regal, literary, musical and fashionable residencies, it is now one of the most gentrified and sought after areas in London. We thoroughly enjoyed peeping into all of the quirky shop windows on our walk to the restaurant...

  1. It’s got to be a good thing that some of London’s finest Victorian pubs are being refurbished and relaunched as eating places. I went to Crocker’s Folly in St John’s Wood before Xmas (see my review) which is quite stunning; and now the The World’s End Distillery, dating from 1897, has been spruced up and become The World’s End Market ‘an innovative culinary concept that genuinely believes in healthy, fresh and flavoursome food.’ Since I genuinely believe all of those things too I’m very happy to have been asked along to review!...

  1. The World’s End Market is the second venture of the Markets Group which opened The Crystal Palace Market restaurant earlier last year. The Group set out to introduce ‘an innovative culinary concept’ to the competitive London restaurant scene by focusing on unfussy cooking using the best quality local ingredients, with the result being primarily grilled fish and meats with classic sauces.

    The World’s End Market used to be an iconic pub which has been lovingly restored. Today it retains much of the atmosphere of a good old boozer. The interior design is reminiscent of an early 20th century canteen decorated...

  1. We walked by World’s End Market and couldn’t figure out where the restaurant was, as the sign actually says World’s End Distillery. From the outside it looks like an old school pub, but it is absolutely adorable inside. The decor is very cute and the fresh seafood displayed at the back, close to the open kitchen, makes it quite unique, as opposed to most pubs that are attempting to look like restaurants. The bar area is inviting and has lots of nice touches such as the fun painting in the back, and the black and white floors...
