Market Porter - February 2020. I met some friends at the Market Porter for post work drinks and dinner. Nice pub, typical pub fare. Would happily return.
Thank you Yasmeen! Lovely to hear 😊
Good roast dinner on a Sunday. Veg option good but cut up your beetroot in the wellington. Otherwise lovely
Thank you for your comments TamsinM Hope to see you soon
Best steak I’ve had in ages. And really great service from our waitress Annetta! She was really friendly, and kindly answered all of our annoying questions on the menu :) took good care of us and gave great menu recommendations. Our table had the steak, haddock and pie - and all plates were wiped clean the food was so good! Will definitely be back very soon!
CiaraF that makes for a great read! Thank you for your lovely comments. I will make sure that Aneta reads this also, she will be delighted! 😊 We look forward to seeing you soon for more delicious Market Porter fare. 🙏
Food excellent as always, Harvey's beer well kept. Quite quiet this lunchtime, although understand fully booked for two successive evenings. Nice to have the usual table overlooking the Market. Staff great!
Thank you PeterB! It’s always our pleasure 😊 Hope to see you again soon! Many Thanks 🙏
good staff, great location .... lovely food ...Id go again
Thank you so much leeM Hope to see you again soon! X
Great food and a great atmosphere. The staff are lovely, very friendly and attentive without being over-bearing. Really good experience!
My second visit, both occasions being for an early evening supper meeting family. What first drew us here by chance was the upstairs dining room, a relative haven compared to the extreme noise of many London pubs, so that we could at least hear ourselves talk. The food turned out to be excellent, maybe a little pricey, but I live in Norfolk so most London things seem expensive. Staff were very attentive, beers good, Harveys from Lewes being a favourite of mine. All in all a great find.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your unexpected visit here JohnS, let’s hope it was the first of many! Thank you for your kind words, it’s always appreciated 😊 Many Thanks from all the team X
Great service, really friendly staff. We were late and our table was kept for nearly half an hour. The food was so good and great value for money. I'm definitely going back!
Thank you for such lovely words Meera We look forward to your next visit 😊 Many Thanks from everyone here at The Market Porter
Limited selection of food but everything we ordered was delicious. Quiet as it was mid afternoon. Waitress lovely
Usual table by the window overlooking the market is my preferred table for many years. On Thursday last the food was the best ever. The haddock on a broccoli mash with a poached egg was beautifully cooked, worthy of any so called gourmet pub. Congratulations to the chef, who I was about to congratulate but he dashed sideways into the gents. I thought he deserved a break from customers and cooking! I am back on the 13th and will be interested to see what is on the specials....except it is some time since I indulged in good, tried and tested sausage and mash at the Porter! Well done all round. Thank you. Peter
Many Thanks for your lovely review Peter 😊 We look forward to seeing you again on the 13th, keep your eyes peeled for those sneaky sausages ..... they may make a celebrity appearance on the specials board just for you! See you soon Peter! x
Staff were friendly and helpful. Service was efficient and the food was good quality.
Thanks GinnyH Hope to see you again soon! X
We have been visiting the Market Porter for a number of years and have always found it a really welcoming and friendly venue. In recent times the food had stepped up another level and that allied to the wonderful dining room upstairs with its views across Borough Market makes it a must go location. We, and our friends could not recommend it more highly.
NoelM Thank you for your lovely review 😊 We are very proud of our delicious pub fare, the upstairs dining room with our exceptional service is a real gem! We look forward to your next visit X
Lovely pub just opposite to Borough market. The waitress was very friendly and helpful in choosing the beer. Food was delicious and well presented. We had a good family lunch there. Would recommend for anyone visiting borough market at lunchtime.
Thank you Helen C We hope you will join us again soon! Many Thanks 🙏
Great location, good service, slightly let down by the food. Sunday lunch - not a bad meal as such but not good enough for the price to recommend or make a return visit.
Service super cordial, efficace et rapide. Qualité/prix dans l assiette très correct et solution pour les enfants rapidement trouvée. À faire
This is not the first time I have lunched at the Market Porter. As before Thoughtfully enjoyed the experience. The staff and food were excellent. I will hopefully be visiting again before Christmas with other friends.
SteveM Thank you for your kind words. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Many Thanks again from All The Team X
Lovely restaurant above a pub looking over Borough market. Great setting
Many Thanks LesleyS 🙏
I love this place - great ambience, tasty food and fantastic, friendly service.
HelenM - we are delighted that you enjoyed, hope to see you soon! Many Thanks 🙏
Roast Beef I had with my Sunday lunch was inedible(tough, sinewy and chewy).
Hi AndyB We are so sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your Sunday roast with us. If there is ever a problem with the food we are always happy to put that right and prepare a fresh meal for you, if we are made aware. Please email me personally so that I can invite you back for a roast on us. email@example.com Kind regards Rachel Brown Restaurant Manager
3 family members came here for Sunday lunch. We really enjoyed the food, although might have preferred a little less meat and more veg variety. It would have been great to have bread sauce or cranberry sauce with chicken.
The staff were very friendly and efficient and this is obviously a very popular place. We each had one course, one glass of wine and shared a pudding. Maybe we not used to London prices but £30 a head seemed quite a lot for a simple pub lunch.
Thank you for your review tartetatin We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your Sunday roast with us. All of our roasts, including the vegan, come with greens, carrot, parsnip and roast potatoes, a medley of veg which is an ample serve and variety. Our meat and vegetables are sourced from good British suppliers, our food prepared fresh daily and cooked to order. We feel our prices are a fair reflection of this quality. We do hope you will join us again the next time you are in London.
Lovely food, great service, very well looked after, thank you
Very good place with delicious pies ! The waitress was adorable.
Thank you AurelieF Our homemade pies are truly scrumptious! Hope you can come back soon to try more 😋 Many Thanks 🙏 From myself & all The Team Rachel
Good, better than standard pub fare and very friendly staff
Come & see us again soon EsterM! Many Thanks 🙏 x
As usuak cheerful and efficent service good food too - but I do wish they would reinstate sausages and mash! Always know how to keep their beer well and always a good choice.
Thank you PETERB Lovely to hear you enjoy our home cooked pub food. Sausage & Mash does make an appearance on our specials board from time to time. The next you book with us, request sausages and we’ll try our best to get them in for for you! Hope to see you soon x
very average pub——————————————————————————————————
Hi Raymond Thank you for your feedback. I’m sorry to hear that you had an average experience here at The Market Porter. I’m interested to know what happened on this visit and why we did not leave a better impression. Great customer service is something that we do take pride in. My email is below if you would be so kind as to take this conversation further. Many Thanks, Rachel Brown Restaurant Manager firstname.lastname@example.org
Food was outstanding and the staff was very friendly. The live music downstairs created a nice ambience for the dinner. Will definitely be coming back.
Thank you so much LauraS, that is a lovely read. There certainly is a lot of buzzing atmosphere in our pub and on the street outside! We look forward to seeing you soon x
Generous portions of the Sunday roast and warm, welcoming service.
Thanks Denise We do serve a hearty roast to be proud of! Hope you can join us again soon. Many Thanks From All The Team 🙏
Wonderful food and the service very efficient while relaxed. A great place for a family reunion - Borough Market is just over the road for a stroll afterwards
What a great place - everything was outstanding! Service was excellent as was the food. Definitely recommend.
It was a last minute booking on a busy summer night. The food we had, the service and atmosphere was FAULTLESS. I had a lovely home made summer pie which was one of the most perfectly cooked and delicately flavoured pies I have ever had. The second time I have eaten here recently and on both occasions every aspect impressed us all. A very very strong recommend
Thank you for such a glowing review! 😊 It is a joy to know that we are getting it right and consistently, a huge credit to Team Market Porter. Many Thanks 🙏 Hope to see you soon from everyone here x
This is the third time I have met my cousin for lunch at the Market Porter. Each time the service and food have been excellent. We both enjoy the atmosphere of borough market and the pub is like an oasis right in the middle of everything. 😊
This is so lovely 😊 to read SteveM We do hope you will keep coming back with your cousins, we are always delighted to have return customers. All the best and Many Thanks From all The Team x
Good food freshly cooked to order friendly service. Book a table in the restaurant upstairs.
Thank you PETERB Our upstairs dining room is a little gem, so glad you enjoyed. Hope to see you again soon!! 😊
Cosy place, very kind and attentive staff, great food, and good views of the crowd outside Borough Street market - highly recommended if you like pub food.
Thank you PeterK We are delighted you enjoyed, the window tables in our upstairs dining room are great for people watching. We hope you can come and see us again! Many Thanks x
Came in when they were about to close and they seated us right away.. service was awesome! Plus the food was outstanding. I enjoyed my experience and will be back when I come to London. Thank you! (From Washington D.C.)
Thank you for your kind words We are always happy to accommodate 😊 Hope to see you on your next visit back to London x
Second visit just as good as the first! Beautiful roast dinner for Sunday lunch. Will definitely recommend & return.
So glad you enjoyed our Sunday Roast JoHass, it really is delicious! We look forward to seeing you on your return Many Thanks from all The Team! X
Its a good pub to bring international visitors too. The range of traditional food is limited but the quality is good. Usually the quality of the beer is something, but in the summer, cask ale is more restricted in terms of the number available, which is a little disappointing given the reputation the pub has.
Thank you for your review We are glad you enjoyed your food and visit here at The Market Porter. In this warm weather unfortunately we do see our sales of Cask Ale drop slightly, customers preferring cold keg beer and cider in the sun. To avoid our lovely ales spoiling before they are sold, we reduce the availability so that the ales on offer stay in tip top tasty condition. We have delicious keg ales such as Adnams Mosaic, Meantime Pale Ale, Founders All Day IPA and Beaver Town Gamma Ray
Every meal I saw coming out of the kitchen looted good. Chilled filtered water placed on the table straight away without being asked for which is good. Service excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Liked the extra little pot of gravy for personal use. Recommended.
Thank you MarkW We take a lot of pride in what we do in our little restaurant but it’s still nice to know that we are getting it right. We do hope you can join us again soon!
Had a lovely evening, great service and food. Relaxed atmosphere and quiet enough in the restaurant to be able to talk. Small menu but quality of food was very good.
Lovely to know Ajb123, Thank you! Hope to see you soon!
Good Traditional Pub in Borough Market.
Genuine old pub with great Atmosphere, friendly staff, no fuss, good beer and wines.
One of London’s finest!
Thanks Rory! We love our old pub too! We are delighted you enjoyed your visit, be sure to come back soon!
