“Restaurant-quality”, “Scandi-influenced”, “delicious” food has helped carve a major reputation for this five-storey gastropub, in “a quiet Marylebone backwater that’s also handy for Paddington”. Beautifully decorated: “it’s still just discernibly a pub, but an extremely well presented one”.

“Only a gastropub by dint of its decor, as the cuisine is restaurant quality” – this excellent Marylebone yearling provides “terrific Scandi food” and while the cooking is distinctive “it makes a welcome change from over-inventive eclectic menus you see elsewhere”. One gripe – “the music can be deafening!”

On the former site of The Harcourt Arms, this Marylebone gastropub reopened in April 2016 with a new menu and a new look. Chef Kimmo Makkonen’s (Greenhouse, The Orrery) European menu nods toward Nordic and Scandi cuisine, and – though it’s had the odd mixed review in the press – won instant high ratings from reporters for its “high-end restaurant quality food”.

"Splendid Scandinavia nibbles in a beautiful, atmospheric pub. Proper fresh whitebait, herring and a salad. Lovely service. A great stolen hour. PS just as good second time around. "
