Following a substantial refurbishment, the much-loved Marylebone pub Sir John Balcombe has been revamped to open up the space in the pub and create a cosy downstairs bar, the change really has to be seen to be believed. It is now open and ready to welcome guests once again and with new refreshing drinks, tasty food and a lively atmosphere, it returns better than ever before!
Open seven days a week, from breakfast to last orders, with a quirky exposed brick finish and relaxed vibe, the pub has character and flair, the perfect escape for the good folk of Marylebone and beyond to enjoy lunches, dinners, meetings, parties or weekend boozy brunches.
RAISE A GLASS
The pub’s drinks list is stocked with refreshing beers such as Moretti, Lagunitas IPA, Meantimes’ Helles Lager and Anytime IPA. Beer lovers can also choose from Doom Bar and Truman’s Swift, with rotations of special craft lagers and ales. Coupled with a list of wines from across the globe and a range of spirits, alongside winter drinks including mulled wine, Kraken Perfect Storm and Sipsmith Hot Gin and Tonic, you’ll be stuck for choice!
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
The revamped kitchen offers a modern pub menu to satisfy all cravings at great value. Kicking things off, the pub will now be serving brunch Monday to Friday from 10am until 12pm and weekends Saturday 11am-4pm and Sunday 12-4pm, with a full English, brioche butties, eggs benedict and smashed avocado on sourdough toast. Come lunch or dinner, guests can enjoy a selection of tempting bar bites such as sticky chicken wings or glazed pig cheeks and crispy whitebait followed by larger lunch plates such as smoked pork sausage and mash, Wiltshire cured ham & eggs or choose from the selection of delicious sandwiches. For dinner, hungry revellers can tuck in to mains such as half a beer-brined chicken with sweet potato fries, a classic 6oz beef burger in brioche or beer battered, sustainably caught, cod and chips. If that doesn’t hit the spot then choose from BBQ cross-hatch fries sharers, hot dogs, crisp salads and hard sundaes to finish.
A perfect blend of traditional and modern, Sir John Balcombe has introduced a rustic brick interior, surrounded by vintage art work, hanging pendant lights, banquet seating and comfy chairs. The ground floor is home to a central wood-panelled bar offering pub goers a more casual drinks and dining area, whilst downstairs has a smaller speak-easy bar vibe, with leather clad seating and a sprawling tree decorated with lights that can be booked for private functions, meetings or impending Christmas frivolities.
