A prominent, street corner building on the Marylebone High Street, this is much more of a bar than your traditional pub although it has little in the way of any atmosphere and seems to fail somewhat on that count as well. I suppose if it were busy it may feel different, but it was very quiet (in terms of the number of punters, not the volume of music) on a recent Sunday evening visit so we only had a swift one and then went elsewhere.

It’s a single room, high-ceiling bar which makes the most of it’s position with large, dual aspect windows to watch the world go by, and a number of high stools and a shelf around the perimeter assist with this. The floor is sanded wood and there are a couple of large chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. The end was all exposed brick and there were a few wooden chairs hanging on the wall which is presumably supposed to be arty in some way.

Unfortunately there were no real les on tap, just keg Camden Hells and Meantime London Pale Ale. The solitary cider was Aspall’s Suffolk.

It's a pretentious bar full of yuppies and their dates. Had some interesting continental beers on tap on my visit but I also parted with nearly a fiver. It gets of limited size and without a seat quickly becomes uncomfortable, unfortunately the atmosphere does not benefit.

It's a shame as this place looks really nice from the outside but it was dull inside and the service is slow. I'm not giving up on it though, will return on a weekend to see if it's any better.

It was better as the Rising Sun!
The relaunch as Dusk was dire.
The rerelaunch as CocoMomo was interesting initially
Food is good but slow for lunchtimes.
No real ale on draught but some bottle conditioned.

Quite a good pub although usually rammed and the stairs to the toilet are very steep so not good if you have had too much to drink!!!!

This place is absolutely dire. If you like spending your hard-earned on poncey euro-beers made from an organic silk-worms vomit get yourself down there. The staff are generally ambivalent to what is going on around them and the way the kitchen gets everything to taste incredibly dry is a testament to the microwaves they cook in. You're better off walking a bit further east towards Great Titchfield Street if 'trendy and independent' bars are your thing.
