|Came here the other evening after work and found it relatively quiet at 6pm - you could find a seat on a shared table which was fine. However, out of the possible three ales one was finished and the other two were poor. I had to return the first pint and settled for a London Pride which Fullers would not be happy about given that it was over cooled to hide its poor condition - avoid unless you like larger!|

|2 room pub on the corner in Shepherd's Market.|
First visit early evening on a Thursday, pretty busy with local (posh) workers.
4 ales on hand pump, my chosen beer was Portobello Star @ 4.3%, a decent if not slightly yeasty pint.
Rather stale atmosphere, most punters in pairs and talking amongst their selves.
Nice traditional pub but it needs an atmosphere.

|This place seems to have got a bit better. Nice guest beers from Tiny Rebel and Saltaire (even if it was their choc beer) and friendly service in this simple london boozer. Didn't try the food, there are more interesting options around, but as an ordinary pub pretty good.|

|A small traditional pub at the west end of Shepherds Market, Shepherd's Tavern is probably the best of the 4 pubs in the market area. The bar area is fairly small with 10 or so tables and a few high stools. I was in on a Thursday lunchtime and most of the other customers were couples or small groups eating appetising looking lunches. The atmosphere was quiet and relaxed and it was definitely a pleasant place to pass an hour or so reading the paper. |
Ales on offer werre Youngs, Bombardier, Spitfire and Broadside.
I am not sure what this place would be like in the evenings - the market area is pretty popular for after work eating and drinking and the restricted space here may mean the bar area is quite cramped but other than that I would have no hesitation in recommending this pub for eaters and drinkers.

|Smallish single bar Punch Taverns pub set on a street corner within a stone's throw of Shepherds Market.|
It's rather unremarkable internally with a bare boarded interior and a mixture of banquettes and wooden seating. There's a reasonable amount of woodwork, but nothing really that is memorable in any way.
Like most pubs round here seemingly, it's very much pitching for food trade from passing tourists and a standard pub menu is offered throughout the day.
There's an upstairs restaurant which the pub describes as being housed in "a large antique pine panelled room".
On my recent Saturday lunchtime visit, beers on were London Pride - £ 3.27p - and Greene King IPA at £ 2.50p. A third pump had its clip reversed. The London Pride was reasonable, but not good enough to stop me thinking that I should have gone for the 77p cheaper IPA. I did notice quite a few framed Cask Marque certificates behind the bar.
I'm not marking this one down for an early return visit.
