Just moment’s from Marylebone Station is The Wood, a pub serving Thai Food, so what better way to have leaving lunch.
The Wood is always busy during lunch with many office workers, so it’s advised to book a table even though there are seating available downstairs as well us upstairs. Although The Wood is situated on a residential street it is of a good size and decorated with a wood concept in mind with wooden tables and benches. They have few TV screens which show either the news or a sporting event, framed newspaper cuttings mounted on the walls and I really loved the scrabble mugs spelling of Marylebone. Also on a sunny day you have the option of sitting outside, where you can indulge with a Pimms during the summer period.
The menu is titled ‘Thai Kitchen @ Wood Marylebone’ and after reading through the menu the choice is great; from starters, soups, salads, curry options and a stir fry section you have plenty to choose from. For those not wanting Thai food there is also the option of having burgers, sandwiches, and chips on the menu too.
So after debating on what to eat I decided on the Green Thai Curry (Keang Kiew Wan) with Chicken in a green curry paste with coconut milk served with rice (£7.95). Other diners opted for Chicken Pad Thai served with noodles, vegetables, chillies and peanuts (£7.95), another Pad Thai this time with Duck (£8.95), and a Red Thai Curry with Chicken (Keang Phed) in a red curry paste with coconut milk. And lastly a Duck Green Thai Curry (£8.95) again served with rice.
The food arrives if and when it is ready, so therefore it is best to start eating (forget manners at this point) as the wait times vary and I for one don’t like my food getting cold, so I just get stuck in. I’m a huge fan of green Thai curry and this hit the spot, the flavours were lovely the vegetables and rice was nicely cooked, and the portion size was good too. Everyone else enjoyed their meals and being regular’s it always hits the spot for a hearty meal at lunch.
So if you’re ever around the Marylebone area, waiting for a train or need to chill after a long day of shopping then pop into The Wood, for a few drinks (prices are expensive) and some Thai food, you won’t be disappointed.
