A new gastropub by the name of ‘The Pickled Hen’ has spread its wings and opened to diners in the heart of Marylebone this week, offering an authentic selection of British food and drinks – but with a pickled twist.

With a public house-themed menu ranging from curious pickle-based cocktails to ‘Eggs and Soldiers’ for dessert, The Pickled Hen offers a wide variety of dishes for visitors adventuring into the coop. 

For those looking for a wingman, ‘The Pickleback’ signature cocktail might be just the thing, combining a shot of whisky with a pickle juice chaser – recommended with a side of crispy chicken scratchings. For the peckish lot, the ‘Pickled Hen’ dish – a whole slow roasted chicken complemented by a variety of Rubies in the Rubble’s award-winning relishes – will go down a treat.

With a cosy and rustic atmosphere unique to the local area, The Pickled Hen lays on a spread for commuters, tourists, businesspeople and locals looking for a new social hub in this buzzing part of London. A full breakfast menu complemented by coffee sourced from Lincoln & York is also available, with a ‘Grab n Go’ section ideal for those in a flap on their way to work.

Peter Roberts, general manager for The Pickled Hen, is leading a flock of 20 staff to deliver warm, approachable and welcoming service.

He said of the opening: “The Pickled Hen aims to bring something new and unique to people in the area – a place where locals and those visiting Marylebone can relax and unwind against the backdrop of an authentic, gastro-pub atmosphere.

“This is a brilliant part of London, with a natural buzz and a great crowd – so we’re really excited to see where the opening takes us. We’re already receiving great feedback for our quirky cocktails and pickle-themed menu and we urge anyone in the area to drop by and try it out for themselves.”

The new addition to the London eatery scene – the first of its kind by The Pickled Hen Restaurant Company – can be found on George Street and has been designed by B3 Interiors, featuring contemporary table settings, quirky lighting, bold wall signage and space available for 150 people.
