The Marquis of Granby is a public house at 2 Rathbone Street, Fitzrovia, London, W1.

The poet and playwright T. S. Eliot is associated with the pub.[1] According to Time Out, the poet Dylan Thomas was a regular visitor, who frequented the pub to meet guardsmen who were cruising for gay partners, and then start fights with them.[2]
