We wanted a snack before getting the coach back, and had been here before. I would not have known that it used to be a gay bar. We had a chicken sandwich and a chili, quite OK. There were several middle aged couples in, and some quite elderly gentlemen. We use it if we are in the neighbourhood.

Over the years I have had some great nights out at the Quebec - their Sunday evening drag shows are legendary. However, I had a long break from visiting & only recently went back as I was in the area. It hadn't changed a bit. Very popular with 'working boys' and older gentlemen, this is still very much the case... More

It's a shame but this is a bit of a relic to and an example of why gay bars are a little out of time these days. Catering for the older crowd it seems stuck in a time warp and although we enjoyed a few drinks here it needs to move on a bit.

If you want to be sexually assaulted by customers that are 70 + then go. Informed the manager and he just laughed and said it was what happens here. He then went and talked and laughed with the people that did it. DISGUSTING!!!! I will definitely be taking this further!

Kinda dingy. Drinks on the pricey side. The ventilation duct was vibrating irritatingly above our heads. I'd say skip it.

I am afraid I have to agree with patrick o. This used to be a near-legendary venue, a cruisy and busy gay bar catering for the age ranges that had grown out of their Soho years (charmingly nicknamed 'Elephant's Graveyard' for that reason), and still wanted the occasional fun night out - maybe along with a few younger patrons, representing...

This used to be a great gay venue, with mainly older clientele, and always crowded. Last Saturday it was dire. Just six customers dotted about the place, despite outside heaving with people on a very hot and traffic-ridden Oxford Street. I was charged £2.20 for a small glass of Coke which wasn't even filled beyond four fifths full. What a... More

We found this pub after a long say out and about in London. Clean and tidy, helpful staff, music was just loud enough but not obtrusive, stayed for a few drinks. Be warned the side street is like a wind tunnel.. But in the summer it will be a welcome relief from the heat.

This place seemed really empty when I entered, even though most of the tables were taken. Interior design would need to be redone! The variety of beverages are average at best and the bar staff polite. The kitchen seemed to be closed by time I got there. The clientel seemed to be relatively nice and the location are really great... More

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods 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.
