I visited Purl with friends very recently. It’s an old favourite for us. However we had such an awful experience with the service that none of us will ever be going back. We had to wait a very long time for drinks (over 20 mins)...More

Just stopped in for cocktails they were fabulous. Had a joker. Great fun. Advisable to book ahead. Fun venue in what was an old cellar. Can get nibbles to but we didn’t try as had a meal booked.

Booked the masterclass with snacks for 4. From the moment we arrived, it was great. Bartender was very knowledgable, interesting & professional. Changed the cocktail menu around to suit individual tastes. He ran thru the tools needed and explained why they were used. Had a...More

Lovely place to get drinks with friends (or a date). It’s quiet, no loud music. So in that regard it’s a blessing but also a curse since people can hear what you say, not much privacy. Also, phone reception is terrible so it forces people...More

Providing service to customers in a near-empty cocktail bar isn't too difficult. Nearly choked on laughter when the front of house checked his phone to see if there were any available tables. Staff too busy chatting at the bar to pay any attention to us...More

We chose this spot for pre-dinner cocktails with friends and pre-booked a table for early evening. The reviews elsewhere looked good so the experience we ended up with was a bit of a disappointment. The place was 2/3 empty, I appreciate it was early evening...More

The drinks taste lovely and I get the vibe they’re trying to achieve but it just comes across as an overpriced, wanky bar that attracts an unfortunate crowd. Now, being from the north my opinion may be tainted by the fact that in general people...More

We were asked to wait as it was very busy - 4 people came out and we were still turned away as the bar manager was “very stressed” stay away - much better places with excellent service around here - try Clarette on Blandford Street

A wonderful trip to a bar right next to the Chiltern Firehouse. A wonderful surprise everytime we ordered a cocktail. What's better is that numbers are limited which means there is plenty of opportunity to talk.

An interesting and cosy venue where one can have a conversation easily, and not feel like one is sharing a space with a lot of strangers due to the different recesses where one can sit. An interesting array of concoctions, but a few classics could...More

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

I would def phone them to reserve you a space. They sometimes have a list to avoid over capacity. I doubt they would charge....we had drinks only.
