Blackthorn _ left this review about The Tudor Rose

An attractive Tudor pub just off the Marylebone High Street, it occupies a prominent corner position and there are a number of picnic benches outside on two sides. Besides the Tudor frontage, the pub had leaded, stained glass windows and a number of hanging baskets to add a splash of colour.

Inside the pub consists of a single room downstairs which has quite a traditional feel with a dark wood floor and an old wooden fireplace with a plasma mounted above it, although this was not in use. A darts board was in one corner and a staircase at the back leads to an upstairs restaurant, although we did not investigate this. The specials menu above the bar offered a Spam Fritter Burger which didn’t really inspire me to try the food if I’m honest. There was another stained glass window in the door to the gents which said “Lincoln Inn, Marylebone”. Whether this was the original name of the pub I’m not sure, but the Tudor rose in the outside windows and carved in to the bar counter suggest not. Perhaps this was rescued from elsewhere.

Beers on tap were London Pride and Rev. James, whilst a third pump for Adnams Bitter appeared to have run out. Ciders were Strongbow and Symonds Founder’s Reserve. Overall I quite liked this pub, but be aware that the opening hours can be somewhat erratic – we found it closed at 9:30pm on a Saturday evening which we subsequently found out was because they had been “very quiet”, and it also appeared to be closed all day on Sunday.

They had London Pride, Old Speckled Hen, and Adnam’s Bitter on. I paid £1.85 for a half of the Adnam’s, which implies £3.70 a pint – or perhaps I was just short-changed. The main thing you notice on approaching this pub is the mock “Brewer’s” Tudor beams covering the outside walls, and then the fact that it is clearly an ex-Younger’s pub with the trademark attractive and distinctive leaded light windows. Inside it’s a fairly small bare-boarded room, with dark wood everywhere giving it an ancient feel. Seating is predominantly tall stools at ledges around the sides, as well as at the bar, plus a few normal tables and chairs. It seems that there is an upstairs restaurant, but I didn’t go up there. I didn’t notice much in the way of wall decor, except the framed amusing “Murphy’s Law” sayings. I thought that this was a reasonably good little pub – nothing very special but a decent enough place to stop for a pint (assuming they don’t really charge £3.70 a pint!) if you’re in the area.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Tudor Rose

Very busy on a Friday evening, but not that much in the way of atmosphere (not helped by the very dark wood decor). Interesting, if hardly authentic, 'olde worlde pubbe' exterior. Perfectly reasonable pint of Old Speckled Hen but annoyingly sold in a lager-type tall, thin glass. Pride and Theakstons also on. Also, beware prices - my pint cost £3.40 which is a bit steep, even for the area.

This is a nice looking pub that I could imagine having a good atmosphere when a bit busier than it was on my early evening weeknight visit, I just felt that the attitude of the barman let the side down a little.

Old Speckled Hen, Pride and Adnams were all available alongside a standard draught selection and although my Guinness tasted fine it was a short measure. This was more irritating than usual as this is not the cheapest pub in the area.

Maybe I went at the wrong time, but from this experience I would not return in a hurry.

Malden man left this review about The Tudor Rose

Tudor style building on a corner plot, one room on the ground floor however it is easy to see how the pub was once divided into two or possibly three areas including a small snug at a guess, as a former door on one side is still present but blocked by a drinking ledge across it. It is quite dark inside, there is a lot of dark stained wood, and the superb old leaded windows with their obscure glass and old Wm Youngers stained inserts don't let in that much light. The windows pick out the WmY name but also "Scotch Ale" and "Mild and Pale Ales". The bar is on an end wall, seating is traditional plus stools at the bar and drinking shelves.
Upstairs are the toilets and also a dining room, I didn't visit though so no comments there.
Beers on were Pride, OSH and Theakston BB. I had the BB and it was in good nick.
There is a basic food menu over the bar on a board, I have to mention that this includes Spam Fritters! That takes me back to primary school, back in the Jurassic age.
In all, a reasonable find and worthy of a look in. I really didn't take to the country style music background though.
