Marquis of Westminster, Victoria
Whether you loved or hated the old Marquis of Westminster, with its Artex walls and gruff locals, its gone: gone the way befitting such an address, we suppose, by becoming rather more upmarket. Its actually pretty good if truth be told - friendly staff (including a bit of table service) a reasonable bar menu and a handful of ales. There're a few original features still dotted about (although we couldn't tell if they're original to this location) and a choice of music which made us stay a little longer than we had planned for. As one would expect, its filled with office workers after 5pm, but its just far enough away from Victoria to not become a nightmare. A solid three pinter.

One London boozer bucking the trend of falling trade is the Marquis of Westminster, a gastro pub that doubles as a "local" with its own loyal following and passing trade from neighbouring three star hotels. Experienced bar staff provide snappy table service and friendly banter. Blackboard menu changes monthly but offers excellent value: confit duck with butter bean puree and fig jus(£12.95),and old favourites: fish & chips (£10.95) 10oz Rib eye steak and fries(£14.95). Well stocked bar has Timothy Taylor Landlord, Sharp's Doombar & London Pride, and guest beers, with a long wine list to suit all pockets. Contemporary music suits eclectic tastes and foot tapping tunes get louder as the evening draws on, making the pub one of the livelier venues in Pimlico.
