The Globe Tavern, Borough Market


Built in 1872 and designed by renowned Victorian architect Henry Jarvis, The Globe Tavern is set in a distinctive gothic-style building.

Rosewood inherited The Globe Tavern building in a near dilapidated condition, with two pediments looking directly over Borough Market in a particularly poor condition.

Restoration works included a Thermatech clean, removal of all cementitious pointing from the building’s facade, re-pointing in a lime mortar, the dismantling and rebuilding of one pediment and the replacement of stone cornices, dentils and copings. Works also included the installation of an entirely new roof, including all lead details.

The building is positioned between two live railway lines and working in the confines of the busiest market in London meant health and safety considerations were paramount at all times.
