Part of the Stonegate empire, this place came into existence around 2009 as part of Marylebone station.
Quite unsurprisingly, this was a first visit last night, made under duress owing to a friend who’s easy to please. The concourse entrance is decked out like a sports stadium, which may have had a megavision screen. Otherwise, the interior is as previously described, very industrial with a pale wood floor (which bounced), exposed (probably Victorian) girders painted bright orange, exposed air handling and partly bare brick walls; there are life-size portrayals of sporting activities to walls, lest someone mistake the place for The Wenlock; otherwise, décor comprised Six Nations flags and an enormous inflatable set of Guinness rugby goalposts to an entrance. Furniture is tubular steel with orange or blue vinyl upholstery, then some slightly raised booth-style seats, each with its own TV and on the subject of TVs, I counted 21, not including ones that may be in the basement pool area or function room, seemingly showing every single sporting fixture taking place on the planet at the time of my visit, each with commentary and competing with the awful piped McDonald’s-style soundtrack, the whole cacophony repeatedly triggering the 80 db noise alert on my smartwatch, conversation being nigh on impossible; there are several games machines too, all amounting to sensory overload. As far as the customers go, I did spot a woman, but otherwise it’s a 99.9% younger male venue.
There was real ale of sorts, in the predictable form of Doom and Pride, a half not requested but arrived courtesy of the aforementioned ‘friend’; I sipped a little, before surreptitiously hiding the glass behind one of the laminated menus that litter the tables and on the subject of food, it was a task not to wretch given the appalling stench of fried chicken.

Pure drinking hell.

Reasonable station bar. OK if you are waiting for a train.

A visit in mid May 2016 after a day at Wembley watching the FA Vase and Trophy Finals.

After walking passed this bar earlier 3 of us return at around 7.30pm on a Sunday evening, I was immediately surprised by the size and layout of this place as we entered from the station side of the bar.

2 ales on, Breakspear bitter was one of 2 choices and was very decent. There was also a craft lager on keg which was decent though not cheap at almost a fiver a pint. The decor can be described as industrial with lots of steel, exposed pipes and brickwork.

In the front window proudly sits an original Ron Haslam racing motorbike , the chatty doorman informed me that the owner of the bar has one in every other sports bar he has across London!

Food features strongly with burgers and hot dogs getting the gourmet touch, at over £10.00 for a hot dog they better be good.

We stayed for a couple of hours watching the Spanish cup final on TV, not so busy here but had a good feel to it.

Sure is worth a visit as it’s a good alternative for the pub on the station that most people frequent.
