THE STORY OF The Market Tavern

Built in 1808 and close to the original site of London’s ‘May Fair’, The Market Tavern oozes Victorian charm; the boudoir-inspired décor of its upstairs Chesterfield Room, available for private hire, is a nostalgic nod to a bye-gone era when this quaint area of London was famous for brothels and bawdy tales – if only its walls could talk…

The Market Tavern’s location offers an ideal spot to kick back and relax after a day’s shopping, sight-seeing around the capital, or a visit to nearby Hyde Park or Green Park – a unique pub that’s a hidden gem in the often unexplored Shepherd Market area.
