Two Windsor Castles in Marylebone and this is the better of the two. Some outdoor seating and a quaint interior. Decent pint.

As a cricket person it is a really good location for pre or post match meet for Lord's. Good beer and, whilst on the main road, is a good stopping place en route to Marylebone or Baker Street.

Dare I mention that twice last year private parties booked out the pub on evening of major match days at Lord's... had to slum it in the Volunteer!

Pride, Landlord, Brakspear Oxford Gold and Harvey's Sussex Best. Some foreign bottles, I spotted Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and Boon Kriek. A bit gastro looking but ok.

First time ever in this pub. Walked past it on numerous occasions but never been in. It was okay. Pint of Amstel 3.40. It is quite small inside but outside there are some benches and you could get some rays in. Bit noisey mind. All in all I'd drop in again.

This pub is better than its average mark suggests: it is located on a very unappealing stretch of Park Road with traffic thundering past, and the poor location I suspect accounts for the small amount of reviews it had. Inside, it's perhaps a bit gastropubby (albeit done quite well) - the main bar is surprisingly small, but there's a further food bit up some stairs towards the back and a function room upstairs. Five handpumps and four ales on when I visited, including Pride, TT Landlord, and Fuller's Seafarers' Ale: the Seafarers' was served well. I didn't eat but the food smelt good.

Lovely little pub. Can be hard to get a seat during peak times but always managed to shuffle someone up. Good mix of tourists & locals, after a while they seemed to warm to us and were friendly. Beer was good but dont leave it to go for a cig or it may not be there when you get back. Lots of celeb stuff around the bar, if your into that.

Absolute S**t. Go to the REAL Windsor Castle, 27-29 Crawford Place, Marble Arch, 10 minutes brisk walk from this noisy dump.

All the much-liked beers here have been replaced by a selection of pseudo-sophisticated Euro-lagers which, naturally, cost considerably more. Sole objective would appear to boost takings. No real atmosphere, even when swamped with business students who, of course, gets discounts for no apparent reason. Presumably that's what the rest of us pay for in the higher prices.

Excellent pub. Full of business school students, giving it an unexpectedly good atmosphere even at quiet times of day. Amiable staff and landlord. Food is basic but good downstairs, nicer upstairs where they have a restaurant and a sort of sofa-filled lounge bit.

Just been back to this place and found it friendlier than before. Some very noisy students at least gave it atmosphere for 4pm on a Tuesday, but nicer was the pleasant chat I had with one of the girl staff (name unknown!), whereas the other couldn't care less. Ah well.....

I've just been to this place for a few hours on a Monday from 4pm. Very quiet to begin with, but lively enough from 7pm. Very nice-looking girl staff, but curiously reticent - I sat at the bar and despite being perfectly amiable they didn't pass a single word of chat the whole time I was there. I didn't feel very welcomed, I'm afraid. Good decor and cleanish loos are refreshing, but they really need to brush up the old customer-relations skills.

Just started up, refurbished bar at the top of Marylebone with a changing selection of real ales, Czech & Belgium beers. A food menu is promised for the end of August and evening entertainment is planned in the near future.
The ale could do with a bit of better cellar management, but as it is early days for this bar I'd recommend this as the northern most stop off for anyone taking the marylebone/baker street crawl.
