I ate here a few times while staying at the Dorset Square Hotel above it, mostly for breakfast. The service was fast and thorough and the food was really good. My last night there I wasn't having much luck getting in to surrounding restaurants simply...More

We visited the Potting Shed by chance due to its proximity to Marylebone Station. What a fabulous lunch - set menu was excellent and crab cakes superb. I’m told the Bakewell tart was amazing - although I was very happy with my cheese! The staff...More

Very expensive for what you get but what you do get is good. The service isn’t bad but isn’t as attentive as you would expect for a £60 breakfast for two (couple of coffees each). Nice environment though and conveniently close to the station. Rating...More

Located on the old Lords cricket ground - a somewhat underground bistro, with a simple good food bistro menu. Good crab cakes, poached salmon and mashed potatoes. Service well meaning but bit of a language barrier

We met up from out of town as a family for a five hour afternoon. The atmosphere, facilities and service were superb. Food was pleasant and reasonably priced. Good location, close to Marylebone Station.

Rather expensive hit poor experience. Recommend the celeriac soup. Mushroom risotto was poor. Neither of us finished it. Ordered small portion however it was enormous. Rose wine was good. I didn’t see the bill but thought the total was very high- almost £50 each. On...More

Excellent service, reasonably priced and great food. The staff go above and beyond to ensure they are aware of all dietary requirements and allergies. We didn’t wait long for the food and warm bread was provided while we waited. I’d definitely go back.

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
