Awards & Reviews
Unfussy, seasonal & local cooking; big on flavour and big on portion. Friendly, attentive service.
Michelin Guide 2009
Food is proudly local, seasonal and traceable, with unfussy, homemade dishes... They make a real effort with their customers.
Michelin Eating out in Pubs 2009
Food is of the faultless modern British variety – plenty of twists on classic themes, all made from ingredients that boast a perfect pedigree.
Food ***** Service ***** Atmosphere *****
It’s hard to find fault with The Marlborough Tavern. The food is far better than the average gastro pub, and combines generous portions with wonderful local ingredients to achieve superb results. The atmosphere is inviting with a real buzz; the service fast and friendly.
Despite being a pub, you can book a table. Good thing, too, as when we arrived for our 7:30 table on a rainy evening, the place was packed. Not three-deep-at-the-bar-packed, but all the tables were taken and there was a lively atmosphere.
The Western Daily Press
The Marlborough Tavern has pulled off that rare feat – to introduce restaurant quality food but to retain the friendly atmosphere of a local pub”
