Please note: this pub is closed for refurbishment until December 5th 2016.
This pub is named after the Metropolitan Railway – the world’s first urban underground railway which passes under Marylebone Road. The company’s house style was developed later, mainly by its own architect, Charles W Clark. His grandest scheme was for the reconstruction of Baker Street which included a new company headquarters and Chiltern Court, a huge block of flats above the station. The work was begun in 1911, yet was not completed until the late 1920s.
