this is a typical London pub, the staff and patrons were all very friendly and the beer was good. I loved some of the décor inside, the tiles on the walls near the door especially.

Atmosphere great. Small; intimate place just off Marble Arch and Edgware Rd. Wanted a place to go to escape the noise and bustle of redevelopment in the area. Didn't bother eating here - internet was down but will return for better luck next time....not enough ales though.

A good selection of beer and space outside to stand and drink. An older style pub. Wooden floors and exposed beams etc.

Friendly little pub with a good location off the Castle. Usual pub food but good and clean. Little crooked house in front was neat.

Just out for an evening stroll whilst staying at the Travelodge up the road when we chanced upon The Carpenters Arms. Heard someone singing - poked our heads round the door to find an excellent vocalist accompanied by a talented keyboard player. Decided to stay & listen for a bit and ended up whiling away a great couple of hours.... More

This is a great pub, how pubs used to be, very social outside as well, so busy standing room only in the street, a great place to socialise and just off of Marble Arch, really enjoyed our time there

This pub has a lovely local feel, tucked down a back street right behind the bustle of Marble Arch and Hyde Park. There are big windows and lovely hanging baskets and because the sun was shining people were drinking and chatting at the tables outside on the street (which is very quiet for its location). There was plenty of beer... More

Staying in Marylebone

Neighbourhood Profile
Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
