Sports Bar and Grill reviews



By Chris B.

I came here during the summer to watch the tennis and it was absolutely great! They had different games on different screens and the Ashes test match was being shown too. Service was a little slow but the bar was extremely busy so I can't really fault them. I returned recently for lunch, I had the steak burger with cheese and bacon which was pretty good and reasonably priced and there was a varied beer selection. I would definitely recommend Sports Bar and Grill for a quick bite to eat and to watch any sporting events.

Great atmosphere and tasty food!

I've heard a lot about the food at Sports Bar and Grill and finally got to try it for myself yesterday. I ordered a crispy chicken sandwich and it came with a very generous portion of fries. The sandwich was lovely and freshly made to order and the fries were perfectly cooked and delicious. If you're in to your sport, this is the place to go as there are tv's everywhere! They definitely haven't spared any expense and you can sit pretty much anywhere and be in front of a screen. Looking forward to going back!

Best Sports Bar in London!

Best sports bar around! Chill atmosphere, friendly staff, delicious food. Love hanging out there with my mates after work.

Comfortable, relaxed and fun

Massive fan of the Sports Bar and Grill venues. Love the decor and relaxed atmosphere. Clean, bright and airy, unlike some others I've visited. Loads of screens, so you're bound to find a good spot to eat, drink and socialise!

Went into the Sports Bar and Grill one Sunday evening with my family as we ourselves live in Marylebone. Glad to say the burger was nice (wasnt too fond of the fries or the bbq wings). One thing that really got under my skin was the fact that my mum started to have a panic attack and couldn't breathe. As we told one of the waitresses to get us some tap water, she went off never to return again! She also clearly saw the state my mum was in. I could see her faffing about serving other customers their food when clearly my mums water was the priority. She returned 5 whole minutes later only because my mums boyfriend had to chase her across the restaurant. All in all very frustrating.

Wanted to watch Wimbledon's final so I booked a table online for four people. We arrived 15 minutes earlier and they could not find our reservation, the excuse was that it was better to call! Then why they offer this service in their web page? I even received a confirmation email but they did not care, and obviously everything was already booked so we ended watching the match at the bar. We ordered Burgers, mine was great but my wife's was under-cook. Fortunately the match was incredible! but I will definitely avoid this place in the future!


By Martin D.

Great venue to watch live football, wherever you sit you can see a screen clearly. I had the ribs and thought they were excellent.


By Alice G.

A really bad experience. I was there with friends and we wait 20 minutes for the waitress to take the order, they where chatting with each other having a good time. I interrupt them and ask if they can take the order, one of them look at me in really bad way and when i went back to my friends i can ear her giving bad comment about us, it was really embarrassing for me because i live in london and my friends where here to visit me. I really want to leave but my friends did't notice anything. The manager turns up and went to the waitresses and start to flirt with them. It was shocking. At the end the food was average but the bill was very expensive and I had to pay the service aswell. They will never see me again and I will tell my colleagues from work about the treatment I received.

The Worst place ever. The manager with glasses looks like a chicken when as the neck cut off,very rude and no professional whatsoever.The big guy and the old woman sitting and the end of the bar giving direction to the staff in a very rude and unprofessional manners to the staff in front of the customer looks very disgusting, i hope the staff is pay well to afford such a treatment. The food is crap, best burger in england? COME ON!! All the food taste frozen and chip and they charge 9 pound for a burger. Drinks are too expensive, 2.50 pound for a small coke on draft and 8 pound for a double g&t way to expensive for drinks served in dirty glasses... I can't give them zero stars but i really hope they will close the doors and change job.


By Jo M.

Was at the Sports Bar & Grill today have to say the food and service were both of an exceptionally high standard.... However the longer I was there the more I realised how much criticism the staff take from a manager (well at least I think he was) who is so full of his own self importance! This guy seriously does not give his staff one second from what I seen the poor chef got it in the neck twice in the space of one hour, He was so busy critiquing everybody else, that he doesn't even realise that he is the problem..Talking to his staff in the manner he does not only in front of other members of staff but customers too. Finally to the staff, thank you for a lovely meal and a mostly enjoyable experience and I hope you are getting paid well to be able to stick "the big bad boss man"


By John H.

This place is seriously lacking in any atmosphere to call itself a sports bar. The staff, especially the waiting staff, are up tight and very unapproachable. The food is ok but due to a man sat in the corner, who I assume was the manager, barking orders across the restaurant it was not an enjoyable experience. Was hard to relax and it feels like this place is striving to punch above it's weight slightly, would never come here to watch sports and it is too over priced for a quick bite before a journey. But if you like your venues without character and the feeling that the staff are about to crack then this is the place for you.


By Kelly H.

Sports Bar and Grill may evoke preconceptions of a testosterone-filled place where pints, football and large slabs of steak are the order of the day; however, this Marylebone venue works hard to break the stereotype with the emphasis placed on a sports bar that appeals to all.

The Venue
Ideally located on the boundaries of Marylebone Station, with a street and station concourse entrance, Sports Bar and Grill benefits from its central positioning. The corner building is sprawling, set across two floors and encapsulating three separate bars. Upon entering, the open, airy bar puts aside any fears that this is a lads only footie spot.

The pierce de resistance, and the main reason for coming here, are several large screens placed high at regular intervals throughout the bar for screening the big games. These screens utilise the latest Sony technology of 200Hz Motionflow technology, providing the smoothest picture ideal for watching fast-paced sports games (upping the average 50 frames a second of standard TVs to 200 frames per second) and the quality really is discernibly better. The large expanse of space and number of TVs they offer make this an ideal spot for piling into for big sporting events when you don’t want to be crammed around one screen in a small pub.

The colour scheme in the main bar area is a little garish; red blocks of colour on the floor is broken up by a length of black carpeting. This clashes against sickly yellow and orange walls. The space is filled by basic wooden tables and chairs with higher versions pushed up against the windows. However, the effect is softened by some attractive chandelier-style light fittings contrasting against a collection of bulbs dangling from long wires out of the ceiling, providing an interesting design feature by the street-side main door. A nice feature is the long open kitchen, which extends out to form the main bar. Exposed brick sits below, working against the style of the chandeliers. Perhaps a little try hard, the mix of basic and upmarket design touches stays the right side of the line.

Just off the concourse entrance is the Scarlet Bar, a room available for private hire. Unsurprisingly red in colour, it’s smaller than the main room but does have an impressive fully-equipped bar ideal for private parties.

Downstairs is a second bar area with the same colourscheme as the main bar. Again, the space is large and airy although there are fewer screens down here. What makes it stand out are five American pool tables with purple felt and a separate darts room. A large bar fully equipped with a good choice of wine and draught beer is also down here. This area can be hired. Throughout the venue sporting memorabilia from a signed Pete Sampras kit and England shirt to sports magazine covers adourn the walls, providing a nice decorative touch that ties in with the theme.

The Atmosphere
With a name like the Sports Bar and Grill it’s unsurprising that the main focus of the bar is geared up towards sporting events. However, during the day the clientele consists mainly of suits from local offices indulging in food with colleagues rather than lads watching the big screens. With the programmes muted, they screen things like the Milan channel for those looking to watch the Italian greats. Being spread across several areas benefits the bar on Champions League nights when more than one game is shown in different areas. On evenings when the football is on, you’re more likely to hear rowdy shouts of ‘ref!’ descending across the space; however, it’s not an intimidating bar and doesn’t invite trouble, especially for those who couldn’t care less about the latest FA Cup result.

The staff are friendly and attentive and help the bar to lose any possible intimidating ambience often associated with sports venues. Full of smiles offering an efficient service, you won’t have to wait too long to be served.

The Food
There’s a decent menu available at the Sports Bar and Grill with an emphasis on easy to eat pub staples in large portions. Breakfasts are also catered for with everything from toast (£1.95) to a full English (£7.95) on offer, available 7.30am-11.30am.

Throughout the rest of the day the main menu opens up. It spans starters like Welsh rarebit with bacon (£4.95), soup of the day (3.95) and a half rack of BBQ ribs (£5.95). There’s also a good choice of quality burgers (£7.95-£9.95), which appear on heavy wooden boards with a metal cup filled with chips – a nice decorative flourish. Even the salads are well presented in heavy wooden bowls. The portion sizes are on the generous side and you’ll be hard pushed not to finish feeling full.

If you’re popping in for a quick lunch then the speedy delivery of food is appreciated and the large selection of cold and warm sandwiches is impressive. Highly recommended is the Yankee cheese steak warm sandwich with thinly sliced beef, melted cheddar and sauteed onions (£7.95). Appearing as a decent sized simple sandwich packed full with filling, it’s a little hard to eat but worth the effort. The steak is well cooked and tender without the toughness you can sometimes get in steak sandwiches. It’s well complemented by a generous helping of the mature cheddar and the sauteed onions are soft and well portioned so they don’t overpower the flavours coming through from the steak. Appearing as the burgers do, on a large wooden board, they also come with a metal cup filled with crispy stringy fries that aren’t at all greasy. It’s a great lunchtime dish if you want something low key.

The Drink
There’s a nice selection of well priced bottles of wine at Sports Bar and Grill, ranging from £12.50-£28 covering ten reds and as many whites with tasting notes on the menu helping to make your decision easier. There’s also a surprisingly large choice of sparkles - perhaps in case your team wins and you want to celebrate - ranging from £22 for the prosecco to £140 for Dom Perignon vintage. They also offer the F1 official Champagne GH Mumm Brut for £7.95 a flute.

Of course, beer is a mainstay here and they have a good selection on draught including Fosters, John Smiths, Amstel, Strongbow, Kronenbourg and Guinness (£3.30-£3.50 a pint) in addition to several bottled beers in the fridge. A selection of soft drinks and teas and coffees are also available.

The Last Word
The main focus of any sports bar are the screens, and they’re excellent quality at the Sports Bar and Grill using the latest technology to show your team winning or losing (although you may not want to witness big losses with such sharp clarity). Worth popping into if you’re in the area and just have to know the score.


By Trevor A.

The best sports bar in London, the perfect place to watch the early Sky game and then move on to watch your respective team play on a saturday afternoon, the screens are awesome and the service is second to none. Treds


By Tim K.

What a refreshing experience for a Sports Bar & Grill. Great food, friendly staff and most importantly an abundance of screens to watch the game. There clearly was a big gap in the market for this kind of place and I think the Sports Bar & Grill Marylebone may well have filled it. TK ps. Make sure you try out fillet streak - fantastic!


By Dan A.

Heard nothing but good things about this place. Surprisingly few decent places to watch sport and play pool/darts near central London when there's a few of you.


By Jon H.

An excellent venue with the biggest HD screens in London, guaranteed to show whatever sport is on....gets busy on champions league night so probably an idea to book. Food is pretty good in the restaurant but i prefer the bar snacks and a game of pool downstairs - this is exactly what Marylebone needs as the place is rubbish for pubs....


By Kristian B.

If I could give less than one star I would. Just had an astonishingly bad experience here. Went in to watch the Champions League football and found a nice table underneath the screen showing the United game. Within two minutes of sitting down a waitress came over and told me I couldn't sit there unless I was eating as I was in the 'restaurant area'.

This, despite the fact that there were precisely three people sitting in the 'restaurant area' and that the bar area - where I would have to stand - was packed. I politely replied that, if it was okay with her, I would prefer to stay where I was, drink my (4 pound!!!) bottle of Peroni, and watch the football. Within thirty seconds, a manager came out and very agressively suggested that I either move to the bar area or leave the premises. I chose the latter.

For a bar/restaurant that has been open for less than a month, I find it astonishing that a manager would treat a customer in such a way. I'm a big football fan and live locally, so could conceivably see myself spending a lot of time and money in a place like this.

They've lost a customer - I will absolutely not be going back and nor would I recommend any one else to go there, so my football-loving mates will be frequenting another local establishment - it's not like The Sports Bar and Grill is the only place showing the football!!!

The staff are rude and amateurish, and in a very British way would rather impose their own authority over their customers than make them feel welcome.So depressing.
