A nice little pub near St Christopher's Place. We purchased just a couple of drinks to enjoy outside. Did not eat but the menu looked very tasty. Would certainly recommend for a cheeky little beer whilst shopping in London.

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
