The Marlborough Tavern
Food is essentially, though not slavishly, English in character and takes advantage of locally sourced produce wherever possible. Its food reputation is matched by their service - always friendly and attentive without being intrusive, and there's an extensive wine list and selection of local ales to choose from. The Marlborough's pub garden is arguably Bath’s finest; a walled courtyard space, that’s perfect for summertime lunching and drinking.
My had the Sunday dinner here and the food was fantastic
Our waiter was exceptional but prior to getting to this point the other staff were a little cold but fine in general
The food is what we came for and it was exceptional
There were plenty of vegan options and the waitress was very helpful in identifying which options were OK for me to eat.
Had a nice evening in pleasant surroundings. Staff friendly and attentive. Menu choice very limited but what we had was well prepared. Vegetarian options not very inspiring and goats cheese starter very small. Otherwise a good experience.
Food was really nice, really creative combinations, nice atmosphere, great service but slightly expensive
Lovely quite restaurant, tucked away. Very clean and homely inside. Great atmosphere, quiet and romantic. Lovely food, changes with the season so always something different. Great little find
Sunday lunch was great. Service poor and very noisy overall.
One of the very best Sunday lunches in the area - the food is hot, the beef pink and the veg cooked perfectly.
Great little spot in a quiet corner of Bath - delicious pub food and cosy atmosphere. Highly recommend!
The food was absolutely amazing , a bit pricey, but we were aware of that. The service felt a little bit staged, however the overall experience was excellent.
Lovely pub with great food! We brought our two dogs along and had a great Sunday lunch.
Busy neighbourhood gastropub with reasonable food great atmosphere
Welcoming staff, great dining experience with excellent food and lovely atmosphere. Would recommend to everyone
I am a regular here and the food never fails to disappoint! Had a great steak, my friend a lovely duck. Had a recent change of staff and busy as always, so service bit slow but fine. Atmosphere great for eating and people clearly enjoying the evening. You need to book!
Wonderful pet-friendly atmosphere. Food was very good and staff were excellent (especially Ben!)
Sunday lunch. Hungry so ordered an extra mixed vegetable portion at £4. Very disappointed to be given a very small bowl of just cabbage. Mentioned it to the waitress and to waiter clearing the table when they asked if we’d enjoyed the meal. Neither passed on. Decided not to take it further as had guests with us and didn’t want it overshadowing the lunch further. Rest of meal very good.
We regularly visit the pub usually on sundays and we have always a great experience. The best sunday roast in the area!
Best peppercorn sauce I have ever had in my life! They were very friendly to our dog and it was a lovely experience all round. Very much recommend.
We sat outside as we had extra people in our party that could not be accommodated in our original booking inside, which was fine. The food was excellent with no complaints from anyone. The reason I couldn’t give it 5 stars is that the staff were slow to clear table used by others and the floor under the tables were in need a good sweep covered in cigarette buts and dirt.
Nice friendly staff and great food. We live in Bath and visit regularly. Either for Sunday roast or for a good evening meal.
No service for 10 mins in vein seated and had to go to bar to get served
Bought most expensive if the Aussie Shiraz reds, which v poor
Food was good and it’s s great place do would go back again but need to sort it out - just because it’s s busy Sat is no excuse to be slack
Staff very nice, just run off their feet
Really good service and a beautiful place in a lovely part of town! We had a lovely evening. Food is a bit overpriced, particularly the salt and pepper squid starter. Other than that, I thoroughly recommend!
We rediscovered the Marlborough courtesy of a family lunch on Christmas Day 2018. We’ve been back a few times with friends and it’s very good. Looking forward to our next visit.
Great Sunday roast again and lovely in the sunshine. Bit noisy for my elderly parents but I enjoyed it!
Service was poor, food was good although a bit over priced. Much nicer restaurants are charging the same price for better food.
Was steak nite Rump for 12.50 instead of £18.75. Had it been full price I would have been disappointed as it was rather tough and hard to cut and chewy. Chips were nice though and Malbec for a tenner was lovely.
A wonderful establishment away from the city. Amazing food with a menu catering for everyone. Recommended by a friend and would recommend to others!
Great food, bit pricey but tasty and most excellent service. Really loud when everyone chatting, our older companion missed most of our conversation, such a shame - a problem with lots of places that have been ‘gastro furnished’. I think you need more soft furnishings to absorb the sound. Would make the world of difference. Thank you x
Absolutely delicious roast dinner had on our first night in Bath. Excellent way to start our mini break! Meat was very tender, With lots of vegetables and super Yorkshire pudding. I particularly enjoyed the sides of apricots stuffing and bead sauce with my chicken. Would highly recommend the Cosmopolitan cocktail - tasted superb! Would definitely go back if it wasn’t so far away!
Exceeded our expectations. Well done!
Lovely food, friendly service. Coped with two toddlers admirably
The fish night was very good, and well attended. The food was tasty and the presentation was excellent. The service was great.
The kitchen have an annoying bell which sounds like a loud ring tone of a text alert when food in ready to be served. It’s really not very nice.
Absolutely fantastic, food, service and atmosphere. Can’t wait to go back!
SUNDAY 07/04/19 WAS OUR FOURTH VISIT.
THERE WERE 4 OF US IN OUR PARTY & WE ALL CHOSE FISH & CHIPS FOLLOWED BY LIME CHEESECAKE.
THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT-THE SERVICE WAS IMPECCABLE WE REALLY COULDN'T FAULT ANYTHING.THE STAFF WERE EXTREMELY FRIENDLY & HELPFUL.
WE'LL DEFINITELY BE RETURNING VERY SOON.
Beautiful food, great service. Perfect Sunday lunch. Sticky toffee pudding best I’ve ever had.
Always enjoy going here and it's always so difficult to choose, as everything is so good! I was honoured the chef asked for my recipe for gluten free yorkshire puddings. Was happy to share the love. Will definitely be back.
Real pub with good quality pub food. Attentive and responsive staff for kids and adults alike.
We are frequent diners here. Our visit on Sunday fell short of what we expected. On arrival we discovered the menu was a 'Sunday' menu, which appeared more limited than on our previous visits. The only veggie main had run out already, which was very disappointing as your veggie options are normally excellent. We were offered some grilled aubergine in its place, but it sounded like an ad hoc strategy for coping for vegetarians rather than an established dish. When our mains arrived, two out of the four had cold vegetables. We had waited some time for these dishes and even though the staff offered to re-do the dish, we really just wanted to get on with our meal so ate them cold. Some discount on the bill was offered for these failings, but we would rather have paid our money and enjoyed better food.
Wonderful Sunday lunch, definitely recommend.
We had a Saturday lunch in here, amazing food and drink, with a great ambiance...we had an issue with our order but it was dealt with really well. Great staff, will definitely be there again soon! Thanks!
The burger was not nice. The triple cooked chips were horrible. My fish batter was soft in side. Over all atmosphere was not attentive. Gone down hill. Hare and hounds much better
