Independently owned & managed pub The Marquis of Westminster reopened in February 2013 following a complete refurbishment. Often described as Pimlico’s village pub, The Marquis is back to doing what we do best, traditional home made British food including wonderful world famous fish and chips, sausages & mash, Sunday roasts and burgers! With a pub, a fantastic restaurant and one of the best function rooms in London, we have created a super-pub, which still has the feel of a British local. Local Pimlican Christopher Hayes bought The Marquis from family friends and re-opened it in June 2006; his parents and grandparents were also pub owners in Pimlico at The Coach and Horses, so Chris is proudly continuing this family tradition in the local area. Matthew Surridge joined in 2008 as General Manager and together they have grown the business so that it now features well on Trip Advisor’s places to eat in London. For those that have not been here before, the people have spoken so come see what we are up to and why many believe us to be London’s best pub. Whether its a pint of ale, traditional British pub food, or an awesome party we have something for everyone!

Sausage and mash let it down

I ate here recently with a group of friends over from America. The service was superb, very friendly and willing to offer advice. She also allowed us to swap mash for chips, and make a few adjustments without any queries The food was, for the most part excellent. Those who had the lamb said it... read more

Popped into the Marquis of Westminster for a quick unintended pit stop whilst in the area, first amazing day of the year and ferociously hot etc. No garden in that respect but seating outside, albeit on the road. Good selection of real ales and largers, I opted for a pint of Peroni..I'd commented on another establishment in Victoria charging £5.20... More

The Marquis of Westminster serves the best tasting Bitters in the area....by a long shot!! I love the Fish & Chips there and the Steaks are always pretty tasty too!! This is my favourite pub in the area and when the sun shines it is great to sit outside and chill. There is always a great selection of Bitters and... More

For years it used to be our favourite London address to have a good fish & chips as it came with a perch. Now it's just haddock and the chips were hard and oily. Generally overpriced food. The pub atmosphere was always on the spartanic side, but now after refurbishment the cheap interior is even more uninviting. This was our... More

We found this restaurant as we walked back to our hotel. We walked up to the second floor which was packed and noisy but we were seated right away. It seemed like locals frequented the pub & restaurant. Casual but cozy is the best way to describe it. We loved the ambiance and the food did not disappoint. We were... More

Staying in Pimlico

Neighborhood Profile
Pimlico
Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than most other Central London neighborhoods. This largely residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames, is a treasure trove of quaint pubs, subtle architectural charms and local boutiques. Here, art lovers thrill at the chance to visit the world class Tate Britain gallery for its collection of British art from the 1500s to the present. For peace and quiet and some downtime spent along the Thames, Pimlico is highly recommended.
