Which Is The Best Pub In Marylebone?

Part ‘M’ of our two year mission to visit the best London pubs, alphabetically.

We're now half-way on our epic mission to tour London's best pubs in an A-Z stylee. This time round, and on to part 'M', we're sticking pretty central and selecting Marylebone for our beery pleasures.

We always choose the route of the pub crawl based upon your votes. So, please nominate your favourite pubs in the Marylebone area, and we'll reveal the results at the end of the week.

Here’s how to play:

  1. Let us know (in the comments below, on Facebook, or by tweeting #bestMarylebonePub) your favourite pubs in the area.
  2. We’ll tally up the votes in a couple of days.
  3. We’ll then arrange a pub crawl around the four most popular choices. You’re welcome to join us.
  4. Our definition of Marylebone for this purpose is the area bounded by Oxford Street (south), Marylebone Road (north), Edgware Road (west) and Great Portland Street (east).
  5. By ‘pubs’, we’re using a shorthand — you can also vote for bars.
  6. You can nominate more than one place. All nominations count as one vote, whether you rank them or not. Likes on Facebook and retweets of someone else’s vote are also counted as new votes.
  7. Venues should be open to the public with no pre-booking, entry fee or membership required.

So, where shall we go?

The Barley Mow on Dorset Street - best chilli in the world. And I love the little booths - apparently they used to be for pawnbrokers....!


Barley Mow on Dorset St!


the gunmakers, 33 Aybrook street


Glad to see others have suggested it - the Barley Mow is charming and oozing with character and friendly faces.

Nick Wilcox

The Harcourt Arms on Harcourt Street


Definitely has to be The Barlow Mow on Dorset Street: cosy atmosphere and friendly customers and staff!

Outside of the Barley Mow, I quite enjoy the Tudor Rose, though it's no where near a great pub. And the Angel in the Fields is a nice Sam Smith, though again, not a great one. I do quite like –and I say this fearfully for risk of down votes– the Bok Bar. The Thai food is good, it shows a much better range of sport than just the standard premiership football, and you can hide round the corner from the TVs. It also has a darts board, though it's not quite got the length you need to throw it properly.

Shepard's Pie is delicious.

The Barley Mow!! :)


The Marylebone on Marylebone High Street! It's a great pub although I'm probably prejudice considering I used to work there. Still under the same management from when it was the Marylebone Tup but with a swanky cocktail bar upgrade. It's not to be missed.

I agree with the Barley Mow - friendliest pub in London and delicious home made chilli

Mark Walley

Oh, just realised that your Marylebone extends all the way to Great Portland Street. In which case, the Mason's Arms on Devonshire street should get a mention. Good Thai food, good beer. Great pub dog if it's around. Also does food on a weekend, which lots of central pubs beyond the shopping districts don't.


THE BARLEY MOW - for the pub quiz & friendly bar staff !

The Barley Mow is definitley one of the best but there's also the Prince Regent and The Marylebone. Controversially, I'm also a fan of the Golden Eagle too. Definitely worth a visit. I also enjoy The Thornbury Castle on Enford Street too...
