After laying abandoned for 15 years…
…the Edwardian ticket hall at Fulham Broadway station has finally had a new arrival.
And as is typical of such things, there are three coming at once. Called Market Halls, they’re vast, buzzing dining canteens inspired by the hawker & cooked food markets of Asia – and they’ve come to you from Pitt Cue founder, Simon Anderson, and investor Andy Lewis-Pratt.
This debut spot, Market Hall Fulham, has taken over said elegant Edwardian ticket hall. Retaining the original tiling and period features, the space now plays host to 250 seats, nine restaurants, a deli, a coffee shop, and a bar – from which you can mix and match dishes and drinks to enjoy in the central dining space, or up on the modest roof terrace surrounding the glass ceiling. A huge step up from your average street food market, the place has proper cutlery and glasses, beautiful interiors, and restaurant-level quality.
So, just who’re the new tenants?
There’s meaty goodness from the likes of BBQ royalty HotBox and fried chicken sandwich maestros Butchies; or you can find something a little lighter from Ahi Poke.
If you’re into something a little more casual, Made of Dough will happily furnish you with exactly that, alongside options from Fanny’s Kebabs and Love Churros. And to top it all off, you can dip into coffee & doughnuts from Press – and of course, there’s that fully-stocked bar we mentioned to go with all of these.
There’s now also Market Hall Victoria (in a former nightclub set in the arcades right by the station), and Market Hall West End will be moving into the basement of the former BHS flagship (beneath Swingers West End) early next year.
Better market in your diary then.
NOTE: Market Hall Fulham is open daily, for breakfast through to dinner. You can find out more, and check out the individual vendors at their website right HERE.
