“Locals call it 'the Pepper Pot'”

The Little Market House
Reviewed 15 July 2018

This unusual red brick octagonal building opposite the Guildhall in the Cornmarket area of High Wycombe is believed to date from 1604. It was remodelled by the famous architect Robert Adam in 1761. There is a café in the open area under the building. It has two areas upstairs, one of which is currently occupied by the Business Improvement District (BID) organisation for High Wycombe. The other is available for public hire. The wall of the café area has a fascinating showing the market tolls payable by stall holders in Victorian times. The building is universally known to locals as the Pepper Pot but was also called The Shambles in the past. This is well worth a visit if you're in High Wycombe.
