London – Fitzrovia 1

On the other side of Tottenham Court Road from Bloomsbury, is an area known as Fitzrovia which has a large collection of tiny pubs. Literary types seemed to frequent these pubs in the decades before, during and after the Second World War. The Marquis of Granby, in Rathbone Street, was a favourite drinking hole of T S Eliot and also of Dylan Thomas.

This pub is a pleasant place to have a meal, a coffee and cake or a quiet drink, and is not too crowded, at least during the day.
