An oasis of calm, just round the corner from Marble Arch and up towards Marylebone.
According to íBeerintheeveningí (a British Beer site), this is one of the top 40 pubs in the UK.
My visit on a warm Tuesday lunchtime (July 2008) certainly doesnít put it that high in my own estimation, but it is none-the-less a very good pub. Clean and tidy, a large horseshoe shaped wooden bar serves all areas downstairs (a function room upstairs wasnít open, so I havenít seen that).
Pleasant young lady served me a fine pint of Sussex Bitter, four other hand-pulled cask ales were available, two from Archers, I canít remember the other brews, sorry. The other customers were all on their own and drinking quietly, enjoying the peace of the place.
The small menu card listed the normal type pub-grub at typical London prices (heavy) and TV screens high on the walls showed changing (Sky?) sports, with no sound.
Glad I found it, Iíll use it again if in the area, well worth finding.

Cosy pub. Very welcoming atmosphere. Had a fresh Brewdog on cask. Nice neighborhood bar, but not really worth planning a trip there if your a tourist.

Nice little pub on a back street close to Marble Arch and Edgware Road. Not very big, usually with sports on the TV. Six hand pumps with ever changing guest beers, some of them can be quite interesting, but the odd Cottage rebadge tend to appear as well. Iíve been coming back to this pub for the last ten years or so, and for a while quality seemed to be going down, but over the last two or three years itís back in good form. Service is friendly and efficient and the atmosphere is always friendly. Definitely worth a visit.

Nice pub near the Marble Arch. Has about six real ales, then the obligatory lager line-up. Good prices. Has a dynamic set-up with a horse shoe-shaped bar and lots of different seating. Tables, stools, chairs, booths, picnic tables - you name it. Prices are good. Didnít have any food. There is one TV in a back-ish room. Hundreds of tap markers line the walls. Place is well-lit, which I like. Will definitely return.

Visited on a weekday afternoon hence it was very packed with funny looking people sporting stripy suits...surprisingly similar to those worn by inmates in the clink. Nice pub but honestly the cask range didnít do much for me, but perhaps I visited on a slow rotation.

Whenever in London, I love to return to this pub. A welcoming and cosy four-sided room with a half circle bar. Always interesting and well kept real ales. Six hand pumps displaying ales from Leeds, Wolf, Rudgate and Bath during my visit. Belongs to the Market Taverns chain which include Market Porter, among others. Very relaxing early on a Monday afternoon, only a few people in the pub and cricket on TV (03.08.2009).
