It’s a question that the Marylebone London team get tweeted regularly, so here is our take on how to pronounce ‘Marylebone’!

First, a quick bit of history: the name Marylebone comes from a church that was dedicated to St Mary – named St Mary-by-the-Tyburn, the Tyburn being a stream that once ran from Hampstead down through Marylebone, through St James’ Park and joined the River Thames.

In the thirteenth century when the language of the aristocracy was French, St-Mary-by-the-Tyburn would have been St-Mary-a-le-Bourne (‘bourne’ being the French for a small stream) and from this we arrive at the word ‘Marylebone’ as we know it today.

Based on this etymology and a progression of phonetics, the correct way of pronouncing ‘Marylebone’ is widely considered to be ‘Marry-leh-bon’ – although in reality this is rarely heard.

Also heard is a variation of the above with the ending ‘bone’, as opposed to ‘bon’. Most commonly today people are heard pronouncing Marylebone as ‘Marly-bone’.

In summary:

The correct way of pronouncing ‘Marylebone’ is technically ‘Marry-le-bon’.

Also often heard are:

Marley-bone (Mar-lee-bone)
Mar-le-bon
Marry-le-bone

You wake up to find the sun beating down on the streets of Marylebone, the birds tweeting and people everywhere smiling. Even the delivery man gives you a friendly ‘good morning’. Summer is here! The chances are you’re wrong, it’s probably just another one of those days where once again we’re all fooled. But time is running out – put down your pens, close your laptops, lock up your stores and hit the pub – bask in the Marylebone sun for the rest of the day with a cold pint in hand. To make your life easier, we’ve made a map of our top 5 Marylebone pubs for an outdoors drink. Go, go, go!

1) The Harcourt Arms

CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR REFURBISHMENT – REOPENING JUNE 2015

Coming in at number 1, this Swedish pub is located on Harcourt Street (who would have guessed?) in Marylebone’s North Western corner. It tops our list because it is, as far as we know, the ONLY pub in Marylebone with an actual beer garden. And it’s a good one at that – for a relatively small pub, the garden is fairly big and it even has covers and heating, still making it the perfect spot even when the British summer is interrupted with that rain shower.

32 Harcourt St, Marylebone, London W1H 4HX

2) Angel In The Fields

Just at the bottom of Marylebone High Street (on Thayer Street), Angel In The Fields is on our list for those of you that want to take in Marylebone life whilst sipping on that ice cold beer. Sit outside on one of the benches and take in the surroundings of Marylebone High Street.

37 Thayer St, Marylebone, London, W1U 2QY

3) The Grazing Goat

The Grazing Goat is a great location for anyone in south Marylebone, just around the corner from Marble Arch tube station. This quiet cobbled stretch of street provides a lovely place for a sun soaked drink, as well as serving a great meal – read our recent review of The Grazing Goat.

6 New Quebec St, Marylebone, London W1H 7RQ

4) The Duke of Wellington

With plenty of outdoor benches lining Crawford Street, The Duke of Wellington is a great spot for an afternoon in the sun. The Duke of Wellington is known for its friendly service and has also received great reviews for its food in the past.

5) The Barley Mow

Recently voted the best pub in Marylebone by Londonist’s poll, The Barley Mow¬†finishes off our list. It doesn’t have a huge amount of outdoor space but is suited for that after work pint when you’re unlikely to find anywhere to sit anyway. Just tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Baker Street, The Barley Mow has a relaxed and light hearted atmosphere – worth a visit for anyone in north Marylebone.
