Fast-casual dining gets bigger than ever with Market Hall West End.
It’s been a scant fifteen months since Market Halls emerged, pronouncing a bold claim to open three new street food halls in the space of a year. Fast forward to the present day, and they’ve delivered said halls in Fulham and Victoria (pictured above) – and now, they’ve set their sights on the biggest fish of the lot with the newly-announced Market Hall West End.

When Market Hall West End opens this summer, it won’t just be the largest of the trio. Nor will it merely be London’s biggest food hall, because why not dream a little bigger, darling? Aiming squarely for the stratosphere, the space will become the UK’s largest food hall, a three-storey spot with room for 800 dining guests. You’d best be hungry when you pitch up, because the food hall will contain twelve independent food outlets, each one more delicious than the last.
At least, that’s what we’re assuming, because Market Hall West End are playing their cards close to their chests when it comes to food vendors, saying only that it’ll feature a blend of new concepts and heavy-hitters from Fulham and Victoria. Eater have taken a punt on Monty’s Deli, Breddos Tacos, and recently-closed Bun Shop to be amongst the twelve, but with nothing yet confirmed, it’s anyone’s guess. What we do know is that the hall will come equipped with a demo kitchen, an events space, a children’s play area, and four bars.
Indeed, the most exciting news (apart from all the food, of course) is that two of those bars – reported to be a tap room and cocktail bar – will be on the second floor terrace, beneath a huge retractable roof. Hence the summer opening, which should get the market off to a flyer. An exact opening date should be in the offing soon, so we’ll see you on the roof!
