Tris C left this review about The Market Porter

Dating from the mid-17th century as the Harrow and rebuilt in the 1890s, I don’t know when the current name arrived, but it’s opposite Borough Market, which has porters, which are served here from 6.00 to 8.30 am.
I can’t add much to the reviews below, but agree with John in that on a Saturday night, this pub was an oasis of calm, compared to the grim Wheatsheaf next door and indeed, it would seem virtually every other Borough Market pub; perhaps they’re put off by the sight of real ale? Speaking of which, I didn’t find as many pumps on as some others have described, with three unused, Southwark Brewing’s Mayflower Session IPA, Portobello’s Market Porter, Adnam’s Mosaic, Adnam’s and Toast’s Turning Tide, Sussex Best, Hobgoblin and Siren’s Project Barista at £2.75 a half and gorgeous; Rosie Pig for appleheads.
This is a must-visit for ale fans when in the area, making for a good double with the Old King’s Head; it also doubled as the Third Hand Book Emporium in a Harry Potter film.

Love this place. Always a friendly welcome. Gets a bit noisy with lots of loud laughter from groups around the end of week lunchtimes. Good choice of real ales on sale. Undergoing a small refurb. Will open again 10th Jan 2019.Udate: Should have done this months ago. Refurb finished, ales as good as ever and staff fantastic and friendly.

What can I say, an oasis in a lager desert. The market Porter always has been and I hope always will be a perfect pub selling perfect beer, sometimes early in the morning too.
