Famous for serving T S Eliot, Dylan Thomas and the 1930's literary set

You will find The Marquis of Granby in Rathbone Street London within a short stroll of Charlotte Street, Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Street - however you won't find another like it.

Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality.

A fascinating past

Our pub was once the meeting place for literary high brows and gangland lowlife. In the 1930s, Dylan Thomas, T. S. Eliot and others rubbed shoulders here with street girls and small-time gangsters. Our historic namesake, The Marquis of Granby, lost his wig leading a heroic cavalry charge at the Battle of Minden in 1759. To this day inn signs, including ours, never show him wearing a wig.

One of a kind

The Marquis of Granby is one of many rare gems in the Nicholson's collection of great British pubs, reputed for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.
