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.

Good spot for an easy Sunday Roast in the city of Bath.
Very efficient in terms of Covid issues, and delicious food. Generally good service, just they forgot to deliver the horseradish and mint sauce having asked 'anything else you need' which is unfortunate.
Food was absolutely fantastic! The garden is brilliant!
And you can bring your dog too which is a plus!
Very good place to eat and drink with friends!
Love the Marlborough Tavern and pleased to see their cooking remains at a high standard for a Gastropub.
The food was delicious, the pub felt very Covid secure and all in all a lovely meal-felt as normal as it could have been!
Superb service and lovely food.
Great food and service, as always.
Tasty squid. Fish main dish was cooked just right.
Lovely weather. Ate outside in well organised garden.
One way system well sorted. Plenty of sanitisers. Staff conscious of how they handled food and drinks. Masks in use. All very sensible.
Great food but put gravy on side as too much on plate
Great food with beautiful presentation - attentive staff. Will definitely come again.
Really nice place to eat, fantastic food and good service, good adherence to social distancing and hygiene too. Only reason it was quiet was because there were only three parties in the restaurant!
These are difficult times and shortcuts taken but we had been coming to the Marlborough Tavern for years and find the quality of the food has declined. Our loss.
This is truly a gastro-pub. I rated my meal 8 out of 10 though I am very particular.
Great meal in great surroundings. Staff very helpful and friendly. Food really good.
Bar manager could have been friendlier.
Table was sticky and we had to ask for it to be wiped.
Food was really lovely but £17 is a lot to charge for roast dinner.
Went for Sunday lunch. Staff friendly and welcoming. Service efficient with good menu choices. Sat outside as lovely day in a nice exterior courtyard. Sunday roast was lovely, and would definitely recommend!
Lovely gastro pub sat in beer garden peaceful , will visit again
The food was excellent, the layout and lack of soft furnishings makes it a bit noisy, and there was a considerable draft from the door to the beer garden being constantly open, but apart from that, service was very good and the food was delicious.
Good lunch in quiet pub garden, nice on a sunny day
Very tasty, looked good on plate. Chef did well to alter a dish to meet a dietary requirement for 1 of the guests.
Very generous sized portions.
Truly excellent food in relaxed dog friendly surroundings and good service
Staff very helpful and very aware of safety on this current situation .Had a lovely eve ,thank you
It's the quality of the food that distinguish this place.
A really tasty Sunday lunch with very lean beef we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal
Good quality food, friendly service, comfortable atmosphere. Will be returning and would recommend.
Sunday lunch is a must. The food was top notch and we would definately go back. If we lived nearer it would be a regular thing. The service and staff were very good. If your looking for a good Food and service book here.
Lovely meal the food was well done and friendly staff
Great place with good service and even better food! Beware cauliflower curry... it’s hot;)
Great service and food. Covid rules very well adhered to. The food was delicious. Four of us all enjoyed our meals. Service was very friendly and efficient. A lovely evening out. Would definitely recommend.
Amazing food and lovely staff - highly recommend!
No Tav Tuesdays at the moment so a normal menu but still and excellent evening all round. Service has even improved from their normal high standards.
Amazing value on the food and drinks. All 3 courses were outstanding and can’t wait to be back.
Lovely sunday roast whilst visiting Bath! Staff in masks and well spacee out so felt very safe
Truly excellent food in a family-friendly pub. My partner and I visited on a Sunday, and the roast was one of the best I have had. A very enjoyable experience, and COVID-secure with a one-way system and table service.
We are Chequers regulars for Sunday Lunch when we come on holiday to Bath. We didn’t know it had shut so was hoping the MT would be as good it was. Lovely Sunday roast, GF options. Good drinking and puddings. Couldn’t fault it.
Lovely roast dinner, polite, happy staff. Great value in a lovely clean spacious venue
First point, good food and experience. Very much enjoyed the Sunday lunch (Lamb was excellent).
Secondly, the pub is well spaced for social distance purposes. So felt quiet comfortable in the current Covid circumstances.
Would recommend and will go again when I am next in Bath.
Sunday lunch to end a weekend away in Bath. We requested an earlier time to our original booking which was no problem and the service and covid safety measures were fantastic.
Six of us went out for my Birthday meal.
We all had three courses and every member of the party thought the food was excellent. Squid starter and Hake main dishes so delicious...
Waitress was attentive and service very good .
