A nice large English pub right next to Borough Market. A nice selection of casks with not much a bottle selection. It was a bit tough to get the attention of the bartenders but was a bit busy. Prices were competitive. Overall quite a nice place to grab a beer after visiting the market.

Classic English pub. Loads of flowers on the walls at the outside, flowery golden ales inside. Nice from a historical point of view. Angram powered.

Lovely pub in Borough Market. I realised that I’ve not ever rated it, so here goes. It’s fairly bare bones but certainly functional inside, with about 10 cask ale pumps as well as a handful of traditional ciders. There’s some craft keg but not a lot: the Market Porter is decidedly old school. Three handpumps are dedicated to Clouded Minds, a brewery new to me, so that’s cool. Staff dealt very well with a massive influx of customers (we came the second day they were open after the recent attacks so they were extremely busy by 3.30). If you want daring and edgy, this may not be the place for you, but the ambience and cask beer are top notch.

I appreciate the history of this place, in fact was nice to note that a number of the other customers were from the market. A wide range of beers but nothin overly exciting. More laid back during the day but rammed in the evenings. Uninterested staff. Somewhat drab interior. Would like to return for an early morning pint though.

Although I lived just around the corner from this pub some (too many, in fact) years ago, Market Porter never became my local, as it tended to fill up with bright young things from the City. On this trip down memory lane (March 17) I dropped by for a half pint of their Market Porter Cornish. Nice selection of beers on cask and tap, and the food menu looked ok - pub classics and burgers.

Visited on a Monday afternoon, so it was not as busy as later in the week. Good rotating selection of guest cask ales. Had an Exeter Fall’s Over, less than stellar. Did not eat. Will be back.

Visited in March 2016 - very standard pub place. Interesting cask beer selection, tap is not really interesting. Service is basic and ambiance is noisy. I don’t recommend this place... Nothing interesting there.

Nice place with a fairly mediocre selection. Lots of casks and kegs(about 20) but that’s about it, and nothing super exciting on when I visited. Being in the area, I’m sure I’ll return to give it another shot.

Cosy, nice place, a touch disappointing with the keg selection, mainly Meantime standards, some interesting casks though, gets ridiculously busy on Thursdays and Fridays.

One of my favorite pubs in London. Located just next to the Borough Market in a place which feels a bit magical to me. Upon entering you can smell the beer in the air. People inside having a pint or two during their lunch break. Very good selection of casks, there’s always something to try. Food is very good. Lovely pub, would like to visit every time I’m in London.
