The Marylebone, Marylebone
The Marylebone is now no longer the somewhat eccentric Tup that used reside here - it's been refurbished and now it blends in perfectly with its surroundings. Dark exterior, dark interior, subdued lighting, tall tables with pony-skin-clad stools and a dark wood bar - it's pretty familiar stuff nowadays. On the drinks front the sole hand pump wasn't in action so we didn't have the opportunity to try the Marylebone's cellar-keeping skills and there's a pretty standard range of lagers and beers on the plentiful taps. The wine list is also pretty much-of-a-muchness and the fridges contain very few surprises. The pub does open for breakfast but on the time we tried it, we found it amounted to croissants and pre-filled baguettes - a little disappointing, we feel, and it seems other people may also feel the same as we were the only ones in. Evenings are another matter though and you'll find a pretty lively crowd in here towards the end of the week, so much so, it's sometimes difficult to get in. The Marylebone might be, in our book, a rather average place, but it seems to push the buttons for punters round here - we guess we'll be leaving them to it.

The old crowd who frequented the Marylebone Tup have migrated to the Gunmakers around the corner and what remains (The Marylebone) is a shadow of its former self, devoid of any character. This used to be a great place to watch the football, have a pint, bit of banter and full of atmosphere. Now it's bland and boring and I simply wouldn't bother.

a travesty that the Tup became the Marylebone. There's plenty of faceless bars about and the Tup was a real pub, destroyed by new owners that clearly never took the time to understand the requirements of the locals. Marylebone is losing it's soul and this bar is one of the causes / victims.

How to find the The Marylebone pub
From Bond Street, cross Oxford Street, turn left and then right, up James Street, which becomes Thayer Street after the traffic lights and then becomes Marylebone High Street. It's up Marylebone High Street on the left.
