Step into The Marquis of Granby in Rathbone Street 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.
The 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.
