Could be better

I've been here many times over the years. It's great in the huge garden for drinks but isn't quite there with the food. I think they've over stuffed the garden with tables, there's barely any room between them and they could do with more staff on a busy Sunday lunchtime. I had a cheeseburger... read more

Is a pub, normal so, normal food, but great surprise: you will never guess from the street that both the internal room and the garden are so nice, warm and enjoyable. We went on a team of 20, service was goos enough and quick enough even if we were a big group. Bbq food is better than other dishes.

My family and I visited this pub by chance last Sunday late afternoon and we were amazed at the size of the beautiful garden. We were offered table service which was just right. The young girl who served us was happy and very friendly. My children loved the menu that was also a colouring competition. The roast beef was mouth... More

As a Richmond local I've taken my time to find the Marlborough. Went last night with friends and was amazed but the Tardis-like size and the huge beer garden. Menu looked great and the atmosphere was excellent. But, oh dear. The staff. It took long enough to find someone to take our order and when we eventually got her attention,... More

This is my local, I've tried to like it , I've gone back again and again giving it plenty of second chances, but things just aren't right here. The staff don't seem to know what they're doing, service behind the bar is slow, their knowledge of drinks is poor, as is the service in the restaurant on Sunday afternoons in... More

The garden area is huge with sofas that are very confy or picnic areas with the kids. There is a special area for parties ( we celebrated a baby shower and our table was in... More

What a friendly bunch of people! Very accommodating to our requests regarding party decorations and patient towards small children and their running around. The food was delicious and the portions generous. Desserts truly divine. Would definitely recommend.

Highly recommend this pub/restaurant. Great atmosphere, food great and lovely outside area as well as a covered bit where you have the best of both worlds. Place was packed which was a good sign too. Would love to come back :)

We enjoyed a great afternoon in the garden. The children had the freedom to play without annoying anyone. We enjoyed a very good Sunday lunch. We all enjoyed the food and service was good. Huge garden area for a London pub.
