Drink with an Old Soldier!



Drink with an Old Soldier!

The Marquis of Granby, Westminster, cask ales, nice boozer

Location: 41 Romney Street, Westminster, London, SW1P 3RF

Description: So the story goes... that after one of England's regular altercations with France in the 1750s, the Marquis of Granby demobbed his regiment and lent many of them the cash to buy a pub!

Which is why the old boy has so many hosteries named after him.

And indeed, The Marquis of Granby, Westminster, is one of them. Cask ales including London's finest - 'pride' - this is one pub to enjoy.
