8 rooms and a cosy pub. That’s it.
The small gastropub cum hotel The Grazing Goat in Marylebone brings a breath of country air to the capital, courtesy of decor that’s more cabin cool than city slick. Great food in the pub on the ground and 1st floors, relaxed and relative well sized rooms and let me not forget about the perfect location.
There´s is nothing more depressing than a large conference hotel or a room so small your suitcase can not even fit on the floor in the corner. Often London hotels are like this. But not the Grazing Goat. (By the way such a strange name and I forgot the ask the staff why the strange name.) 8 well-sized rooms (4 regular – as the one I was staying in – and 4 superior with bathtubs) that’s all they have and they are well-prized as well. Now, there is no 24-reception available, but personally I never had the need for reception desk help in the middle of the night anyway.
The pub downstairs is a great British gastropob where the seasonally-tailored offerings focus on home-grown ingredients such as smoked Shetland salmon, Suffolk chicken, heritage carrots, Cornish mackerel and Laverstock farm mozarella. There is an à la carte breakfast menu which offers a great variety and by experience I can recommend staying in for breakfast. The Grazing Goat also offers roomservice from the same menu.
I wouldn’t mind coming back to this nice hotel, if ever in London again.
