This fascinating little foodie place, housed in a former law court dating from 1750, has been refurbished with wit and style

Near the higgledy-piggledy streets of Shepherds Market is the handsome Punchbowl, now spread over three floors and cunningly fusing Georgian tradition with up-to-the-minute glamour. Inside this former Court, the ground floor is a smart country-city pub, while upstairs is an art deco dining room. Up again to The Club for private parties in an opulent Victorian setting. At the bar or in the dining room, law-abiding Londoners sample pints of IPA Deuchars or the pub's own tipple '1750' with house ale-battered catch of the day, minted pea puree and hand cut chips, perhaps, or a hearty burger. You can feast on the likes of Norfolk chicken breast with forest mushrooms, celeriac, roasted garlic and truffled tarragon sauce, and there may be time to sneak in a rolo chocolate & blood orange fondant with honeycomb ice cream before the last cry of 'order'.

  • Special occasion? Celebrate in our top-floor Victorian-inspired private dining room ‘The Club’ - the perfect space for special occasions and get-togethers.
  • Green Park, one of London's largest and prettiest Royal Parks, is just a short stroll away.
  • Regent Street boasts some of the UK's best shopping and is just a 10-minute walk from our doors.
  • Escape the crowds with a stop-off at Mount Street Gardens, a small garden that's relatively off the general radar.
