Visiting Family and went here for Sunday Lunch on another family members recommendation. Food was your normal "run of the mill" Sunday Lunch, nothing spectacular, could have done with being a bit warmer, but it was edible. My main concern was the waiting staff - they quickly got in a muddle with orders once the place started getting busy with... More

To the Marsden Inn for lunch. New chef and a great improvement in the food. Generous portions, beautifully cooked. Friendly staff. Short walk to the coast and one of the most beautiful views in the country. I hope that the improvement to the accommodation match the improvement in the restaurant. It would be terrible if this lovely old pub failed.... More

We were visiting friends and found the Marsden Inn online. We found the price was very good at £45 for the night for two of us including a very nice English breakfast the next morning. The room was clean and had a nice view over looking the sea , the staff were pleasant and will visit again next time we... More

My husband and I stayed at the establishment this weekend. I have to say we have stayed in a lot of hotels/B&Bs over the years. NEVER have I stayed in a place where it would have been more comfy to sleep on the floor than the bed. It was only the fact we took our own pillows that made the... More

Have had some nice meals here but today's was very poor. Two classic burgers looked lovely on the menu but were actually small, dry, overdone and in a dry bun. No dressing or side salad. When I said I wasn't happy we were told they had ran out of dressing as they had been busy. Still got charged full amount.... More

It was Mothers Day so understood the place was very busy but we did wait a good 20 minutes to be seated, another half hour to place our order and another half hour to get food. However I have to say it was well worth the wait. Sunday lunch was outstanding! We will definitely be back. Compliments to the chefs

Looked forward to a good dinner after a nice walk along the seafront. Restaurant was well laid out with menus on the tables and after placing our orders settled down with drinks to await our meals. Unfortunately it was a Tuesday and unknown to the staff who took our order no food is available after 1745 on a Monday or... More

The Marsden Inn is my local bar and I have to say it's had some good, bad and average owners over the years. It's a great pub but I have 1 gripe about it. New years eve they had massive cash karaoke signs up outside the pub. So me and the wife along with friends popped in. After a few... More

Thank you for your review of your stay at the Marsden Inn, however short it may have been. I am afraid you have taken several things out of context, and skewered the odd sentence from our correspondence to suit your aim to defame the hotel and radicalise your stay. There is a sign on the reception desk, clearly stating to... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here on the 14th of Jan 2015. I was told that previously it may have had a bad rep with former owners but its under new management. We ordered food which arrived really quickly. I had my usual (scampi) and she had Pork with mushroom sauce. After finishing mine I had the luxury of pinching... More
