Where do W1G locals go?


An amazing restaurant for crab and steak. A very cool place where everyone sits on long tables, but don't eat beforehand as it leaves you very full!

The Cavendish

The best place for lunch in Marylebone - partly a private members' club with an elegant atmosphere.

The Joint

The best wings, ribs, burgers and pulled pork in town! It rivals even the most well known and popular barbecue restaurants.

Grosvenor Square

Grosvenor Square on a balmy evening beats Hyde Park!

The Parlour, Sketch

Posh breakfast and striking, artist-designed dining rooms - perfect for a special occasion...

Manchester Square

One of Marylebone's many charming garden squares...

Roots & Bulbs

Healthy and delicious feel-good smoothies, juices and salads. A healthy hot spot you'll be visiting over and over again!

The Providores and Tapa Room

This is a weekend central London must! Walk-in brunch at this hot spot is unbeatable - especially if you're lucky enough to catch a seat outside!

The Wallace Collection

Displaying a private collection of artworks from the 18th and 19th centuries. The plus point of museums in London is most of them are free to visit...

Chiltern Firehouse

Celeb hangout with grand surroundings - skip dinner and just book a hotel room!

The Ginger Pig

An amazing butchers with top quality meat and the best pork pies and sausage rolls in the land! Grab a warm one and eat immediately...

La Fromagerie

An Aladdin's cave of foodie delights - fresh produce, charcuterie and a cheese room. If they let me into heaven, I hope it looks like this!

Paul Rothe & Son

A fourth generation family delicatessen serving homemade sandwiches and lunchtime treats.

St Christopher's Place

After a busy day down Oxford Street, nothing beats a quiet escape to this hidden gem tucked in the heart of Marylebone.

Mayfair Pizza Company

A hidden gem on a cobbled street in Mayfair. Simple bistro-style Italian food, a wood-fired pizza oven and really affordable for the Mayfair area.
