A fascinating past

Our pub was once the meeting place for literary high brows and gangland lowlife. In the 1930s, Dylan Thomas, T. S. Eliot and others rubbed shoulders here with street girls and small-time gangsters. Our historic namesake, The Marquis of Granby, lost his wig leading a heroic cavalry charge at the Battle of Minden in 1759. To this day inn signs, including ours, never show him wearing a wig.

One of a kind

The Marquis of Granby is one of many rare gems in the Nicholson's collection of great British pubs, reputed for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.

Famous for serving T S Eliot,Dylan Thomas, and the 1930s literary set
