A real Greene King horrow show.It has an L shaped interior and feels large.The flatscreens were blaring the Six Nations while the mindless hip hop soundtrack was turned up to 11.And this was 5pm !.Very busy inside with the usual mix of high tables and dining type tables,the entrance to the first floor dining area and bar was being watched over by bouncers,who from this elevated position could watch proceedings in the tap room.There are some original features at the back of the pub with good cornising and door screens in dark wood but unloved.
A Sambrooks Junction clip was reversed leaving just GK Abbott,IPA and London Glory (NBSS 1.5,far too cold,tastless caramel sugar water with some added industrial alcohol).
Just don't bother,it's awful.

A first in here the other night, having passed it thousands of times throughout my life, and I doubt I can add much to that below. This is a typical Taylor Walker outlet dating back to 1735 but rebuilt in very modern times. Surprisingly, despite its footie bent, it's actually better than your average TW by-the-numbers haunt, attracting transients, tourists and students from the nearby Westminster University.
A beer patio out front overlooks Marylebone Road's thundering traffic; inside it's typical TW with games machines and TVs.
Ales: Greene King's IPA and London Glory, Belhaven's Robert Burns Brown Ale and Taylor Walker's 1730 at a touristy £4.60 a pint and ok as far as 1730 is ever going to get.
The Volunteer up the road is vastly superior and even Greene King's sister pub, The Allsop Arms over the way is better.
I don't envisage a return visit.

Taylor Walker pub opposite Baker Street tube with a reputation as being a footy fans hang-out during the season. Indeed I only ended up in here due to the Spoons being rammed as a Tube load of my fellow Wembley-bound Gasheads had disembarked two minutes before my arrival. Looked quieter over here and I soon found out why, with a pint of cider and a pint of Trumans Runner clearing me out of nine quid - someone here was racketeering. Other ale choices were all fairly mainstream (I think Marstons New World was the only other I might have been tempted by). Bar the attractive black and gold continental illustrations on the façade, there isn’t a huge amount to recommend it and the Metropolitan over the road is superior in almost every aspect – the Globe only beats it by having an outside drinking area.

Large pub very near baker street tube and an obvious tourist trap. You can easily tell this by the Sherlock Holmes bar upstairs and Westerham 1730 being £4.55 a pint.

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

Undistinguished Taylor Walker house, aimed firmly at the tourist trade (apart from when dealing with pre-match crowds heading for Wembley from Baker Street tube station across the road). Retains a few features of interest, such as the continental maps on the façade, but the 'L'-shaped interior furniture and decor seems to have come from an 'old London pub in box' kit. Also has an upstairs dining room (never visited). Five handpumps on the bar counter, with 1730, Pride, Pedigree, Otter and Truman Bold as Brass (£4.35, less 10% Camra discount) on my recent re-visit.

My visit here a couple of weeks ago was my first for some years and I’m glad to report that I thought it had much improved. I found the barman to be polite and there was a good mix of people in watching the Championship game on the two plasma screens. I would have preferred it if they had put the sound on and got rid of the inane chart music, but to be fair there were probably more people not watching the footie than were.

Greene King IPA, Abbot, Directors, Bombardier and Broadside were all available along with a standard draught selection and my Guinness was well served.

There is always going to be a transient crowd in this pub due to its location opposite Baker Street station and it has a reputation as a session pub before games at Wembley, but I will still pop back in for a pint or two when next passing – just not on match day.
