This corner pub in Marylebone started life in 1791 as a meeting place for farmers to pawn their goods. Legend has it that the wooden snugs (now listed) either side of the bar gave them a bit of privacy in which to make their transactions. These days, there's a good range of lagers and bottled beers along with the ales, plus food (mainly Pieminster pies).
Marylebone may have a bit of a reputation as a well-to-do part of the capital, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find an honest-to-goodness boozer in the area. Pick from ‘proper’ pubs with a real history and down-to-earth boozers doing a solid trade in pints of ale. Of course, there are also some seriously fancy gastropubs to choose from, too, which suit the locale to a tee. Read on to discover the best of your boozing options in Marylebone.
