What they say:
The Fat of the Land is an exciting new pub opening up in Marylebone in Summer 2012. On the site of the old Sam Smiths brewery pub, Duke of York, this promises to bring a much needed gastro pub to Marylebone area and will be run and operated by pub landlords responsible for the early gastro pub movement in London. Anyone lucky enough to have stumbled across Queen's Head and Artichoke close to Regent's Park will know that is an exciting development. Opening seven days a week, with pan-Mediterranean dishes served on regency styled dining room, and a good old styled local london pub on the ground floor, serving food and drink. Expect seasonally sourced produce and local beers to get the mouth watering.
What we say:
Marylebone pubs are few and far between. With a perfect village ambience and setting in Marylebone, the area is crying out for a good London gastro pub and The Fat of the Land promises to be that and hopefully a lot more. The owners have a great pedigree for creating award-winning London pubs, including The Peasant and The Norfolk Arms so they come with an excellent reputation. With the emergence of fantastic locally sourced london craft beers and the adoption of fine British produce and cooking in London pub kitchens, The Fat of the Land could capture this all in one friendly place and give us a snapshot of the London pub in 2012.
