Marylebone, London
(4.2/5 based on 95 reviews on the web)
Marylebone is an affluent inner-city area of central London, England, located within the City of Westminster. It is sometimes written as St. Marylebone .Marylebone is roughly bounded by Oxford Street to the south, Marylebone Road to the north, Edgware Road to the west and Great Portland Street to the east. A broader definition designates the historic area as Marylebone Village and encompasses neighbouring Regent's Park, Baker Street and the area immediately north of Marylebone Road, containing Marylebone Station, the original site of the Marylebone Cricket Club at Dorset Square, and the neighbourhood known as Lisson Grove as far as the border with St John's Wood. The area east of Great Portland Street up to Cleveland Street, known as Fitzrovia since the 1940s, is considered historically to be East Marylebone.HistoryMarylebone gets its name from a church dedicated to St Mary, represented now by St Marylebone Parish Church (1817); the original church was built on the bank of a small stream or "bourne", called the Tybourne or Tyburn. This stream rose further north in what is now Swiss Cottage, eventually running along what is now Marylebone Lane, which preserves its curve within the grid pattern. The church and the surrounding area later became known as St Mary at the Bourne which, over time, became shortened to its present form, Marylebone. It is a common misunderstanding that the name is a corruption of Marie la Bonne (French for "Marie/Mary the good").

  • Great staff with cocktails to match! Came by chance after bad experience in other pub. Bartender was great, good sense of humour and attentive to people and dogs. But the masterpiece are the cocktails! Well worth a trip and sure to bring us back week done.
  • Excellent pub and good bar service..Especially Nuno.... But I m surprise I can't see JW Blue Label....
  • Nice atmosphere. very limited selection of ale on tap though. Doesn't serve food but you can bring your own food in, which I actually prefer.
  • Vintage and with good music pub where you can find reasonable prices and a good variety of beers, cocktails all with a very cool atmosphere. A great place for meeting with friends or the new girls you have just met.
  • Nice bar with great cocktail selection and happy hours daily. Only stopped in for a drink but would definitely go back next time I'm in the area.
