One of the closest pubs to Smithfield Market in London, the Bishop’s Finger points the way to fabulous food and drink - serving exceptional freshly-prepared dishes including some of the market’s finest meat.

You can enjoy delicious fresh fare here, with a crowd-pleasing menu of modern pub food complemented by a raft of daily specials and a superb collection of ales, lagers, wines and spirits at the bar.

Perfect for a quiet, peaceful pint, The Bishop’s Finger is great for group get-togethers too. There’s plenty of comfortable seating in the charming, traditional bar area on the ground floor, while a private-hire function room on the first floor enables you to celebrate special occasions in style.

There are even a few tables outside, ideal for watching the world (and those Smithfield market crowds) go by in summer…

Whatever the season, come rain or shine, a warm welcome awaits.

"...One thing I’ve missed since then is a pint in a pub on a hot summer’s day. And that’s when I saw, on the other side of the square, The Bishop’s Finger. And it was pointing at me. And the next thing I knew I was in the cool dark interior, standing at the long polished wood bar, watching Fiona, the owner, draw a beautifully cleansing glass of Whitstable Pilsener."
