I had a flash-back, walking in here, of visiting this pub in around *cough – 1983 – cough* so as to put a tick beside it in my Good Beer Guide. I’ve quite possibly never been back since. Busy at 8pm, quiet by 9pm.

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Marylebone, Central London, W1U 1QB.

The pub has expanded since its Victorian origins into the premises next door and both upward and downward to provide bars on four levels, with an attractive open-plan design. Closed late 2015 for a major redevelopment of this and adjacent buildings.

We have visited this pub once, seen 6 different beers and tried 2 of them.
