    @aldwinsmith @brucepregler9 Shepherd market is a charming village constructed of small 18th century buildings which were once market shops, hidden away behind the main Picadilly road.

    Many of the old market shops have now been converted into small restaurants serving a wide range of food.

    Others have now become the many interesting shops selling antiques, artwork and jewellery.

    There are many traditional Victorian pubs which often spill out onto the streets in the summer months adding to the atmosphere.

    There are so many restaurants. For example: Zonzo restaurant. Or you can find any restaurant near your place like that by using smart search engines of restaurants:
    Ex: http://restaau.co.uk
    I often use this web to search restaurant for parties of my company
