A real ale pub with a Harry Potter connection

At a glance

Bar menu
Restaurant menu

With as apt a name as you could wish for, this Borough Market pub is blessed with a really good atmosphere, especially on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, when the retail market operates. Harry Potter fans will surely know that the inn became the 'Third Hand Book Emporium' in one of the films. The exceptional choice of real ales includes the resident Harvey's, and 14 other ales which rotate on a weekly or even daily basis. Unusually there are also guest ciders. Apart from sandwiches and bar snacks there are dishes such as steak, ale and mushroom pie; cod and pancetta fishcakes; and for vegetarians, wild mushroom and baby leaf spinach risotto. On weekdays the pub opens its doors at 6am. Children are welcome before 6pm.
