Allegedly named after Sir William Wallace (1270-1305), who carried out an early guerilla war against the English before defeat by Edward I. Wallace Collection nearby may have more to do with it.

Recently absorbed into the Nicholsons free house arm of Allied, this is allegedly the oldest pub in Marylebone, built in 1791. There is much original panelling and matchboarding. There are two private 'boxes' fronting the bar which were used for pawnbroking transactions - a secondary occupation of the first landlord. His customers for both businesses were for the most part employees of the old Portman Estates.



Exit this pub and return to Baker Street - turn right and head back to Baker Street station
