Has become a gastro bar and restaurant named Ape& Bird.

Has been undergoing a big refurb with the pub shut, but last week the hoarding outside was advertising an opportunity for a bar, restaurant or pub... chances of it being a pub again?

Popped in last night for a quick afre work pint. the place was not busy, the bar staff were pleasant and the Cornish Knocker was in good nick (two other real ales available). Was able to sit undisturbed to read the paper.

Can't really understand earlier posters but it was a Monday and yes, the West End is known for it's criminal elemant (bag nickers). 3.60 a pint in keeping with the area.

I don't think that some of the less complimentary reviewers can be at the same pub. I am not local so not a regular, but whenever I am in the area I do like to go to this pub. It was most enjoyable when this year's Heineken Cup Final was on; with all the other sporting events there can't have been many better places in London to watch Ulster versus Leinster that day. The selection of beers, particularly Cornish Coasters, Doombar and Old Speckled Hen, is very good. The meals I have had there have all been very nice. The staff I have found to be very friendly. I highly recommend this pub.

WARNING: DO NOT GO TO THIS PUB. My two friends and I wandered into The Marquis of Granby on the off-chance that they might be showing the Man City Vs QPR match. There were 5 minutes until kick off and there was a plum table going spare right in a large area right front the screen. We settled down in our seats and moved the table literally about 10cm to the left to get a better view and to bring it in line with the chairs, which were a little further back. Out of nowhere this huge, lumbering, sweating, hulking bully of a Landlord flew across to our table, got hold of it and slammed it right up against the wall and roared "YOU DO NOT MOVE MY FURNITURE!" When we protested that the table had never been that far against the wall in the first place and any damage he feared we might have done had just been made worse by him throwing the table half way across the room, he got right up in my (female) friend's face and jaws clenched, bright red, shaking with rage, he screamed "YOU. DO. NOT. MOVE. MY. FURNITURE. DO. YOU. UNDERSTAND."

Hence to say we left immediately and did not spend any money here. I don't go to work to line the pockets of insecure little men with a fetish for furniture moving. He will be the ruin of this pub. Shame.
