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.

Staff were fantastic from start the finish. Food is spot on as always. Very happy with their social distancing measures. 10/10 would recommend
Service was mixed, at times very good but then had to wait to long for main course to be cleared and desserts menus to be provided and ordered. Food was good and with the governments assistance reasonable value. Ambiance was a bit lacking, perhaps needing a bit more noise or bustle.
Excellent lunch- attentive staff, and safe environment.
Fantastic food very tasty good wine list cozy perfect for Sunday lunch or weekdays dinning the staff all were masks and have a one way system in place which works very well
Excellent service and amazing food. We really enjoyed our time here and would highly recommend it.
Food was exceptional. The best mussels we’ve ever had. The staff were very good and you wouldn’t have noticed the challenges they are facing serving people behind masks. Friendly, polite and attentive. Well done team!
Glad to be out again. My wife’s meal needed to be wheat and dairy free so the staff marked the menu accordingly. There were a couple of main course choices but only sorbet for dessert. My roasted cauliflower curry was very nice, but my view is that the two strips of courgette did not add anything as the texture was, excuse me, slimy and it didn’t belong.
The staff did well to manage the customers, especially the ones who breezed in having not booked and obviously having indulged in alcohol already whilst playing a n the golf course opposite. It was mainly younger people, who acted liked they owned the place and could hover close to our table and ignore the one way system.
All staff wore face coverings, although I can imagine this is difficult for a whole shift and we noticed a lot of touching of the mask and partial removal by one staff member. Challenging times.
For dessert, my sticky toffee pudding was well out together and presented and I had to do a three mile walk home to partially balance the calorie intake.
I absolutely love the Tav! Food was exceptional; we had a mixed bread board to start, followed by muscles and a burger and nothing disappointed. By far the best muscles I’ve eaten. We sat outside and it was delightful, the ambience was perfect and the seating was cosy. Staff are always lovely and welcoming. Can’t wait to pop back in
Service welcoming and suitably attentive and food very enjoyable
Dogs barking loudly insides spoiled the ambiance. Same last time. Inconiderate owners. Not keen to return
With less tables for covid limited atmosphere and menu. A bit noisey
A really nice, relaxing evening meal with excellent service, good food and good atmosphere.
Lovely little gastro pub. Sunday lunch was delicious.
Delicious food and wine! Great service and atmosphere.
Very friendly staff and a delicious roast! The outdoor area is lovely on a sunny day and not too busy. Would definitely reccommend
Under the current circumstances we had a very pleasant evening
Great food and friendly service
We keep returning as we really appreciate how careful the masked staff are. And the food is delicious!
Really lovely food, great atmosphere outside. Great service.
Great dinner, lovely pub with really nice garden.
Food was excellent, higher-end pub fare.
A wonderful meal - great choice of drinks including wines that we had had in Michelin starred restaurants and superb quality food - it might be a burger but how’s it’s done is delicious - if you want good food and good drinks with great service then this is the place for you
The Marlborough Tavern was situated close to where we were staying on holiday and we visited it 3 times during our week as it was so good. Food is great quality and lovely selection. Also had a pinot origin rose wine each time which was perfect. Highly recommended.
Excellent garden and the food was very good. Service also very good with friendly staff willing to help with food and with finding a table in the garden.
Excellent service and food. Have already recommended to others.
The Marlborough team have put together a splendid offering given the very difficult situation. The food is excellent and the staff superb; they deserve our full support as we try to return to normal.
It was a lovely day so sat in the courtyard garden, fab. Service was attentive but not too much. Food was really tasty - we had scallops and the jerk chicken caesar. Wine by the glass and cask beer were excellent. Will be back for more of the wine list which looked excellent. Tad expensive but worth it for the quality.
Roast beef was nice, as were the vegetables and gravy, but the roast potatoes not great. They tasted like they had been cooked the day before and reheated in the microwave. It is a shame because the Sunday lunch used to be really good there.
I had the Sunday Roast and thoroughly enjoyed it. Lovely food and great service. Social distancing was extremely well managed and I felt very safe and comfortable. Well done to all the staff and thank you for a delicious meal and very enjoyable and relaxing Sunday lunch
A top quality Gastropub with a lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. Delicious roast beef and lemon posset. Very good range of wines by the glass. Excellent value.
Pleasant staff. Good food-enough but not too much. Can recommend the Lemon Possett
Excellently cooked fish and lovely wine list. Brilliant service as well.
Awesome dinner and service was outstanding! Thanks
Beautiful enclosed beer garden with lovely gastro pub style food, good ambience and friendly staff.
Had our first post lockdown meal out here last Thursday here. Food was great but most of all the staff were really attentive and we felt that every effort had been made for us to feel safe and cared for. Bravo The Marlborough!
Super experience. Lovely food, attentive service and after lockdown it was great to see everything clean and well spaced out. Highly recommended.
Delicious evening meal and reasonably priced. Will definitely be going back :)
Lovely food. Staff very friendly. Service was prompt. Covid guidelines adhered
Great service and delicious food as always.
Felt safe and respected in the COVID environment- very well managed
Great new menu and fantastic wine list. The scallops where to die for.
Lovely to be going out again!
Relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
They made a real effort to make it safe for everyone. A wonderful dinner, a fabulous waitress. Thank you. We were disappointed by other guests coming across each other and greeting with hugs? Do they not know what is going on?
