Borough Market is deservedly popular, both with tourists and locals. While there's no denying that it can get too busy at peak times, there's definitely some great places to eat.

1. The Ginger Pig

The Ginger Pig, other than being an excellent retail butchery, sell some outstanding sausage rolls.

We went for the leek & Stilton, but I'm pretty sure you won't be able to go wrong with any choice.

The Scotch Eggs also look pretty bang on, although I haven't personally tried one.

2. Brindisa Chorizo Roll

Brindisa's Chorizo rolls have been a long standing favourite of mine (and many others) for years.

Consisting of a grilled cooking chorizo, some sweet and juicy piquillo pepper & rocket leaves in a warm toasted bread, it ticks all the boxes.

I've probably eaten more than 10 of them in my life, but keep coming back as they're good value, filling & totally delicious.

3. Bread Ahead Doughnuts

Bread Aheads doughnuts are extremely popular, if you go on a Saturday morning about half the people you'll see will be carrying a bright blue box from Bread Ahead's doughnut stall.

I actually enjoyed the honeycomb more than the viral crème brûlée doughnut, but pick any one and you're bound to enjoy.

4. Oysters & Prosecco at Dorset Oyster Bar

I adore Oysters (once I eventually got into them properly) and being able to just grab a couple with a glass of Prosecco without it costing a fortune is an absolute treat.

5. Raclette at Kappacaesin

Raclette is good anywhere, but it's generally pretty hard to find outside of the French Alps.

If you don't fancy going all that way, you can just pop down to Kappacaesin and have their excellent Raclette with delicious hot cheese, potatoes & cornichons.
