    Marlborough Head: Gothic pub off Oxford Street

    by tvor Written Jun 2, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We met friends at a local pub just off Oxford Street called the Marlborough Head. It has a dark and fantastic gothic atmosphere with ghouls and gargoyles and other creepiness lurking in corners and on the ceilings. There was a gargoyle on the wall by the downstairs kitchen/bar and a grim reaper in a case on the wall by where we were sitting. The toilets are hidden behind faux bookcases, marked by brass plaques in the floor as to where the ladies' and gents' is, you just walk to the case and push the door!! In the Ladies' at least, there was some creepy spooky sounds being piped in.

    They have a typical pub menu and what we had was fine but others have told us that the food can be iffy. One of our table members wasn't impressed by her salmon pie but my scampi and my fiance's Big Ben Burger were fine. (Warning, Big Ben Burger has the burger *and* a fried egg, two sausages and bacon on it!) Prices were comperable for a pub and not more than you would think considering the location.

    Favorite Dish: Scampi, burgers
