Description: The Shepherds Tavern is a handsome feature in the Shepherd Market landscape. Built in 1735 as part of the original redevelopment of the area by Edward Shepherd, after the original May Fair was moved to Bow in 1686. Edward Sheppard was an architect and property owner, the tavern was built on ground belonging to him. Formally a butter shop, the exact date of when the building converted into pub is not known. English born actress M.B.E Wendy Richard lived in the pub from 1948 to 1953, and is honoured by the Heritage Foundation.

Busy and buzzing with a great atmosphere and good nibbles even though I would probably avoid a sit down meal.

“Cask Beer, World Cup Soccer and good pub food? How can you go wrong?”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

We stumbled upon this pub and found a treat. The bartender/server was very nice and accomodating to my photos. The food was good and atmosphere was fun since we were watching the beginning matches of the World Cup. They were knowledgable about the beers and locals there were nice. Great fun on a Monday night.

“Good for a beer”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Nice pub slightly away ( thankfully) from the madness of the main shepherds market area. Haven't eaten here but if you want a good pint and to chew the fat with your mates it's spot on.

“Great Fish & Chips with Scampi”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

This little tavern is so cute on the outside and was only 2 blocks from our hotel. It's a on a very cute street. I had this special and it was terrific, not to mention economical. Highly recommend for a basic pub meal at a value price.

“Fantastic atmosphere & great location”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

A good choice for a nice quiet drink in good surroundings.
Located just off Sheperds Market - a beautiful location tucked away in Mayfair.
The staff are very attentive and friendly, there is a wide variety of beers to choose from & the food is also very nice.
Well decorated, well maintained and well worth a visit!
