user reviews of the Grosvenor Arms, Mayfair

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

We used to go here to use the room upstairs regularly for meetings. The staff were always accomodating but the landlord was never friendly, helpful or accomodating. I don't think I'll ever go back. I rated it a 4 because the staff deserve something!

I found this pub to be a little odd. It has a regulation bar but as davewat says below all the furniture looks like it belongs in a cafe and one from the 1970s at that. In the early evening the lighting was very low particularly at the front of the pub and there was a small candle on each table.

Ales on offer Landlord and Pride with one clip turned round.

Weird environment means there is no reason to choose this pub over some of the better offerings nearby like the Windmill or Iron Duke.

Visited this place on a busy friday night. The staff we helpful and i quite liked the unusual decor, though my pint of TT wasn't that good.

It seemed from posters and newsletter that manager was trying hard and i would give it another go in the future.

Nice pub, not too far from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street. Looks like a traditional pub from outside but interior is a mix of pub and cafe furniture which gives it a slightly confused feel. Pleasant staff and decent pint of Landlord at reasonable price for this part of town.

Wandered here from the Iron Duke around the corner only to find that the Grosvenor also closes on Sat evenings. It was not my lucky night.

Nice pub with almost cafe-like decor (tiles, tables) and Timothy Taylor Landlord on pump. New owners have been in almost a year now and have regular jazz and stage magic nights as well as producing a newsletter telling us all what's going on.

Great Magical Jazz night with Magic Circle tricks and blues singer. Real Ale and friendly bar staff. What could be better!!

Strangely enough, the interior of this pub reminded me of a coffee shop.

Just to let you know that this pub is open again. I'm the new manager for Grosvenor Arms, my name is Andy. Come in introduce yourselves and have a pint.

I've decided to revise my rating for this pub. Seems to be lacking atmosphere and has closed early on a couple of occasions due to lack of patrons. Perhaps it needs to do more advertising so people know it's open again!

The pub has now reopened again (think it was in May/June 2007). I wasn't a visitor before it closed, but I have heard that it looks much the same as it did before. In terms of facilities as well as the main bar area, there is an upstairs function room which I haven't used yet, around 3 tables outside on the street and a cash machine literally next door. Very polite and friendly staff. Very convenient for me to visit after work and just round the corner from New Bond Street. Recommended.

This pub closed down in July 2006.

very hip old man-style pub, fantastic music and extremely friendly staff who's ability to have a good-time is contagious, great prices too. Highly recommended 10/10

Nice little pub - polite staff, friendly, quiet and comfy for a few beers or a quick bite to eat.

Nice place - bar staff amiable, although the evil quiz machine kept stealing my money. Quite small, but a comfy place to while away an afternoon.

pub is beautiful, quiet at times but always an atmosphere of fun. New management arrived last year and is creating a great london local feel. which is hard to find. Suits during the week tourists at weekends but an all round good vibe
