PIN Shepherds Tavern
The oldest pub in the market
This corner pub is well on the tourist's trail and has an upstairs restaurant and function room. The area of Shepherd’s Market is well known for its Victorian pubs and this place is no exception. Although probably the best-known pub in the area is Ye Grapes - just down the road – this place is the oldest.
Its door opened in the early 18th century when the famous architect Edward Shepherd was initially developing the area. Licensed in 1735 it has had many different names such as the Ducking Pond, Dog & Duck and Crown, until 1769, when it became the New Chesterfield Arms (until it was rebuilt in 1938). It is very close to the RAF Club in Piccadilly and was a main drinking haunt of Fighter Command in World War II.
Great pub with some well-kept ales.
