One of my favourite places in London. huge selection of ales with resident draft from Meantime brewery in Greenwich.
great atmosphere, huge overspill of folks fresh from work on the street outside, trains passing overhead, market stalls and food vendors close by. i cant think ov anywhere better on a summer evening for after work beers!
Up the street a little bit is where parts of Lock Stock and two smoking barrels was filmed!

My first pub visit on a recent trip to London. Being situated right next to Borough Market makes this a convenient boozer if you have time to kill before or after (or while) visiting the market.

I found the selection to be very good, with a nice range of cask ales on. I enjoyed an Essex Best Bitter.

I visited during daylight hours, in the mid-afternoon, and the atmosphere was bright and welcoming, with a lot of woodwork and beery decor. It was lively/busy without being terribly crowded when we arrived. As time went on and more people came in, it got more crowded, but some folks spilled out to drink their pints outside, which is a great option when the weather permits.

Definitely worth visiting when in London, plus there are 3-4 other very good pubs within a 5 minute walk from Market Porter.

Located right next to the wonderful Borough Market, the Market Porter is a great place to enjoy a nice handpulled pint. I stayed relatively close so had the opportunity to hit this place up a few times. Inside it is a good looking traditional pub. There is an L shaped bar as you walk in with about 10 cask and an equal number of draught offerings. The cask offerings were all interesting beers with a number of Darkstar choices. The draught was split about 50/50 between local beers and macros. On first visit I did not realize that there was more to see other than the first part of the bar when you walk in. Another 6 or so casks are on the other side of the bar so make sure you walk around.

It was really nice weather for my trip so I enjoyed having an afternoon beer outside watching market traffic and the after work rush. They have food here but I did not try since I was enjoying the market food so much. Directly across from the bar is rock oyster bar which was excellent. Next to that is a French market stall that sells a duck confit sandwich that is killer.

Definitely recommended.

Stopped in on a Wednesday late afternoon - the crowd mostly City workers and a few regulars. The atmosphere is great in here, classic pub with dark woods, rich green painted exteriors with window boxes. Interesting artwork on the walls. The cask selection here is incredible and changes often. The highlight of this trip was Ringwood XXXX Porter Winter Ale. Highly recommend a visit here if you are anywhere in London. Plenty of other good pubs nearby and the Borough Market is a plus.
