Sounding more like a firm of solicitors, this has been a family-run Morton-Scott pub since 2007, having a rich history to be read at one’s leisure on the pub’s website. Did Charles Dickens drink here? Of course he bloody did!
The interior’s quirky, with a modern boarded floor, black field panelled ceiling with large metal shades over the bar, with its attractive mirrored back, where one can see a turntable with a huge selection of vinyl albums and singles; the Kinks played during my stay. There are little partitions with leaded glass and a fake coal fire glowing in the entrance lobby of this narrow, banana shaped interior. Customers seemed to be theatregoers and office workers and there was a good vibe.
A friendly young barman presided over one unused pump, Decca Supreme Session Ale (Portobello, apparently), Ghost Ship and Tribute at £2.50 a half and not bad but a bit cold.
Not a bad place this and if I’d not been on a mini-crawl, I’d have stayed longer.

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

Odd-shaped pub, formerly known more fully as the Marquis of Granby, tapering to the screened Dicken's Corner just one seat wide. Four handpumps on the counter, dispensing the regular Doom Bar plus Tribute, Ghost Ship and a decent Elgood's Cambridge Bitter on this visit. Upstairs lounge bar / dining room with Doom Bar on another pull. Handy for Charing Cross station if the alternatives (e.g. Harp, Chandos, Ship & Shovel, etc.) are too full or you just fancy a change. Part of the small Morton-Scott chain.
