The Marquis of Granby – 2 Curtains

Marguis of Granby Westminister

A below average pub in Westminster. The history of the man who has named this bar is more interesting than the bar! But first the bar!

You have some nice booths along the walls – separated by glass. The benches in the booths are in good leather and solid wood.

The wooden bar is big and painted black.  There is not so much seating, so a good chance you have to stand up.

The crowd is civil servants of a varied age group. Not so many tourists. The service is not known for its friendliness. The bar is situated here:

Todays Normism:
“What’s your pleasure, Mr. Peterson?”
“Boxer shorts and loose shoes. But I’ll settle for a beer.”

  2. Just stumbled upon your interesting pub blog.

    I blog on pub names and pub signs, not the pubs themselves and you might be interested in some of the history behind the most famous ones.
