Normally it’s lovely but on Friday, four out of the six meals were terribly presented. Fish and chips: chips huge, often hard and often black. Tipped over plate messily. Batter soggy. Woke same night with upset stomach which lasted 24 hours:(
Great atmosphere and food. Glad we managed to get a table!
We had a lovely Sunday roast on our first visit to the Marlborough Tavern. Food was very good, there was a nice atmosphere and cosy ambience. Service was excellent. Prices are above average for a roast in Bath but the meal was worth it. Would like to return for an a la carte meal to see how it measures up to the Bath competition.
I took my lovely wife there for our joint Birthday treat as well as our wee dog. They are a very dog friendly pub/restaurant which is really nice and they brought a little bowl of water for the dog which was nice as it was quite warm. Have been to the Marlborough several times now and always had an excellent meal. The menu is not huge which I feel is a plus but everything on it looks delicious and everything I have had there tasted delicious to boot!
Friendly staff and nice ambience makes for a lovely dining experience but be warned, the ceilings are not tall so it can be quite warm and cosy. Also, don't leave it too last minute. They are good so do get booked up quickly, especially on the weekend!
Not cheap but not horribly expensive either and the quality of the food is really good. We had a great night - thank you!
We had a great experience here, we both had a roast which was nice but nothing special. Staff were very helpful, but the ambience is what really sold it. Not too crowded but not empty, music not too loud and a great mixture of songs, soft lighting and candles on every table makes it really relaxed and cosy. Would definitely recommend this for anyone!
The best Sunday Roast both myself (vegetarian) and my friend (meat-eater) have ever had. Warm and friendly atmosphere. Can’t wait to come back!
Really delicious Sunday Roast, very accommodating of us and our baby.
Great food and specials are restaurant quality, good pub classics on menu too. Service was slow as they only had one waitress on a busy Fri night but we didn't mind as we weren't in a hurry.
Lovely food and excellent service, what more do you need.
Great meal, attentive staff and lovely atmosphere. Delighted this is our local. I would use it more but if not eating it’s hard to get a table. Indication of how good it is 😀
A very tasty Sunday lunch ! Will definitely be back .
Best Sunday lunch I've had. Staff were very friendly and can also make a great coffee
Best Sunday roast we have had at the Tavern for a long time. New chef? Shame the Butcombe was off!
Lovely atmosphere, super friendly staff and delicious food. Guaranteed a great evening. Our favourite pub and luckily our local too!
We were staying at the Royal Crescent (around the corner) and their restaurant was undergoing refurbishing, they recommended this gastro-pub as a great option. It was fine. We'd been to The Chequers the night before and it was superior. Our starters were very good, my main (steak) was perfunctory. Rick had pork 3 ways, it was better than mine but not outstanding. The service started out really on top of everything, then dwindled to a stop, where we waited a long time for dessert, and then the check (our waitress disappeared). So - was it good? Yes. Would I go back? No. Are there better options? Probably. Certainly if you're in town, it's not worth the trek up the hill.
Great as always. Food very tasty and well presented but not huge portions
Great food as ever, and the team was very accommodating with our 8 year old nephew.
We really enjoyed our New Year’s Day lunch at The Marlborough Tavern. We have been before and will definitely go again. It is a peaceful, comfortable place to be, with helpful staff and good food.
I took my mother here for her birthday, along with my wife and kids. We all enjoyed our food and agreed the service was good. The place was decorated very nicely for the holiday period. We had been years ago and weren't veery impressed, it's gone back on our list of places to eat! They catered well for one vegetarian and one gluten-free.
Informal but professional service by friendly staff. Excellent food (im pescatarian) AND we can take our dogs! Well priced.
