CLOSED. Premises are now a coffee shop.

Can concur with previous poster - it's okay but not the pub it used to be. Ale I bought was murky though they did change it. Only a bland selection of brews. Okay for a swift one while waiting on a train but not worth missing any trains for.

Used to use this place regularly when commuting through Marylebone back in the day. Was a great place to have a few beers and relax at the end of the day along with other likeminded workers. That was a few years ago but this pub is still a pleasant place to while away some time before a train or to miss the busiest part of the rush hour with a few beers - prices are akin to other London pubs nearby.

Four ales on, GK St Edmunds was good enough for a quick pint before a train, especially as I couldn't see any pubs in the near vicinity of the station (no doubt there are some but you never know how far you might have to walk before you find one and the train co. won't hold the train).

Fantastic building within the last main line terminus built in London. Unfortunately the beer choice, quality and price were all sorely lacking so I would recommend a look in at the rooms and go somewhere else for real ale if that's your preference.

Railway station pub. Better places to go locally.

Popped in here on Sunday on me way to Wembley for the football.

4 ales on the pumps, lots of staff and very fast service

£4.85 for a pint of Morland Old Golden Hen....really???

Busy with Arsenal and City fans, nice and pleasant and handy for Wembley but what a rip off.

Marked down from 7/10 on my last visit, due to the price!

I have used this place fairly regularly having moved to a town served by train from Marylebone. I have always liked the place, had good service, enjoyed a good variety of beers, and as a bonus it is child friendly.

There is a "but" or two, though. The lavatories have always been pretty revolting and if sitting close to the street side then be prepared to share the smoke from the smoking area. As an ex-smoker I don't care, but the other half does. Overall the positives far outweigh the negatives.

However last night I was disappointed to find they have stopped doing the BITE card discount. I was also rather put out to be served short measures even after having had to ask for the first round topped up (in a surly manner) by the barmaid.

Pub on the station that opens at 10am so it's a decent start for a few beers before heading off to Wembley...which is exactly what I did on Saturday.

4 pumps offering the following ales GK Abbott, GK St Edmunds, London Pride and Courage Best.

Decent pub with enough bar staff to accommodate with the crowds waiting for a complaints from this reviewer.

Food looked fine but though the portions looked slightly small.

Had a very quick pint in here before my train last night.

Agree with the previous comment that it feels like a station pub, but definitely worse out there.

BBC News 24 playing silently in the background, and couldn't see any toilets in there.

As for the booze, my brother and mate had to send back their Bury St Edmunds as it tasted like vinegar. Old Speckled Hen was okay, though.

Also Meantime Lager and Pale Ale on tap.

Plenty of seating in two rooms - bar stretches between the two - with tables outside too.

Visited recently and it has had a bit of a makeover. Still has the feel of a Station pub but much better than it was.

Lack of interesting cask ales on but did have meantime Lager and pale ale on draught.

Strange pricing structure which sees half pints have a 40p markup over their full pint equivilent.

OK if waiting for a train but better pubs in the area if you have got the time to walk to them.

A Toilet

Agree - not the nicest boozer, but the beer was very good and the glasses clean!

very poor, even for a london station pub.
go to the hobgoblin or globe if you're waiting for a train instead.

I agree with a previous poster. this place is shocking.

Unless your train is due in ten minutes, and you enjoy the smell of Burger King with your pint, please leave the station, turn left then left again, and go for a pint at the hobgoblin...

What else would you expect at a railway station?
vera_shaw - 22 Aug 2005 16:19
Shocking pub. I can't think why anyone drinks in there unless waiting for a train. There are about 3 excellent pubs within 200 yards.

Pretty good selection of real ales and pleasant interior - let down by the two pool tables that dominate the larger bar and mean going outside in the cold if you want to sit down. Why?

The V&A bar has completely changed in almost everything,friendly staff, nice food, much cleaner, 2 pool tables, much better poeple, much busier. You must see the difference.

Gives the impression of being slightly dirty, although it does have a couple of pool tables at a quid a go.

We also drank the Monopoly board, on the 17th August, and went here. Nothing much of note, just a bog standard station bar. I think 6 is a bit generous, I'd say 5 at best.
