Tris C left this review about The Larrik

A much swifter rebuild for this one, dating from 1835 but seemingly obsolete as to warrant a shiny new one in 1894.
This seems fairly similar to Quinno’s experience, one advantage being that it’s off the tourist trail, so the pub probably takes better care of its customers, given that they’re more likely to make a return visit. There’s a wooden bar front and back and an overall Eau de Nil colour scheme with trendy prints to the walls and pot, though the dog print has gone off to the Portman down the road; pot plants feature heavily. Furniture is entirely mismatched by table, pews exclusive to my table were upholstered with some ethnic print fabric, but I noticed that some similarly upholstered seats had somewhat bizarrely been applied to the ceiling.
Staff still seemed to be Latin, though now probably less bamboozled by the pumps as they’re now down from three to two, one reversed, the other ostensibly dispensing Landlord, though off as it was awaiting an engineer; Neck Oil it was once again then, £3.20 a half.
This isn’t a great pub, lying somewhere in the middle of Marylebone quality-wise; certainly not worthy of a special visit, but ok if needed as a place to get out of the rain, assuming of course that the engineer isn’t required.

One room with bar to the rear. Three hand pumps with one reversed. The other two were weak in strength. Could be a lot better.

Quinno _ left this review about The Larrik

A large corner building with attractive brickwork and rounded turret. Now very much pushed into the food bracket with almost every table containing flowers and a salt and pepper set. Internally it's a large, high-ceilinged, open-plan L shape with the leg of the L behind some tied back red curtains. Otherwise it's stripped wood and battleship grey – blando gastro. Three pumps with two on: GK Abbot and Robinson Dizzy Blonde. The latter was serviceable without being any good. Seemingly staffed by Latin youngsters who seemed faintly bamboozled by the pumps. So there you go.

Malden man left this review about The Larrik

An architecturally pleasing building with well preserved stonework, a projecting three storey corner bay and dutch gables, inside it is now one L-shaped space with a scuffed boarded floor and what looks like some original wood panelling. Large clear glass windows along two elevations plus light décor make the main area where the bar is bright and airy while the return of the L on the inside is more subdued. There is some darker grey and green bits, no gastro leaning place would be without that, there were lots of family groups eating and the buggy count was high. Roasts seemed popular being Sunday, lemon roast chicken or beef were on the menu, £13.50 or £14.50 but the standard fairly upmarket menu was available too. Arty prints on the walls ranged from moody black and white photos to John and Yoko, Christ atop of Corcovado mountain scaffolded and two staffie dogs, "Dog" and "God".
The window cills had a large collection of pots of herbs on them as well as the expected candles, a union flag dangled from a ceiling while clear white blankets were suspended from another area.
There are three handpumps, Purity Pure Ubu plus Mad Goose and Wadworths 6X. I believe all three change regularly.
Not too bad a spot for a gastro leaning pub, decent beer if a bit pricy (£4.40).

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

Attractive corner pub, with both facades having matching architectural details. Typical gastro-pub decor (including a few large black & white photographs), with light furniture and floorboards. Dining room to one side of the bar. Relaxed atmosphere on a Sunday afternoon, when this type of place really comes into their own. Two of three handpumps in operation, with Wandle and Hook Norton Lion (£3.90) available.
