SquareMeal Review of The Market Tavern

Set in the Harry Potter-esque alleys of Shepherd Market, this Georgian tavern has caused local office workers and tourists to fall under its spell following a recent makeover. Inside, contemporary Edwardian decor provides the backdrop for tap ales that include Camden and Meantime brews, plus bottled craft beers. Order from a fair selection of wines when dining in the cosy basement bar. Pulled pork pie with golden beetroot piccalilli is among a range of snacks; more substantial dishes might include guinea fowl breast stuffed with pecorino and spinach, served with roasted squash and stem broccoli; or red pepper and quinoa burger. Follow with the cheeseboard or sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream. Shepherd Market was long notorious as the haunt of prostitutes, so in acknowledgement there’s a tart’s boudoir-themed bar upstairs, with racy plum and fuchsia flocked wallpaper – and it’s available for hire by the hour.
