About the Pub

Large, one-bar pub broken into two by a large wooden pillar, Sofas are mixed in with wooden tables, chairs and some high stools. Four green and gold ornate pillars give a hint to the age of the pub being a couple of centuries old. The age of the wooden floor and black and cream floor tiles along the bar front is not known.

Painted panelling in the side bar and painted walls up to the toilets and Drawing Room (a bar with three pumps mainly for eating) add points of difference as do two wooden booths tucked around the back. The centre piece is a fire place with dark wood surround. Food, mainly bistro style, served although as their website does not state the opening hours the times we show are not confirmed.

UCL's Bloomsbury Project dates the Marquis (named the Marquess of Cornwallis) to 1804. It has been surrounded by a host of luminaries both in (Great) Coram and Marchmont Streets, and beyond, at least in the earlier years. It was almost certainly named for the British army commander (who is best remembered perhaps as having surrendered at Yorktown thus losing a good part of the American empire, but it appears made good in Ireland and India), Charles Cornwallis 1st Marquess of Cornwallis.
