Lunch at the Marlborough, Farnborough

First visit to this pub but will definitely be back .. we arrived early so were lucky to have our pick of tables, beautiful round table in front of real fire, excellent and reasonably priced menu, good wine list .. nothing was too much trouble for our young waiter (Chris) who didn't seem to mind... read more

This is my local pub but I won't be going again - 10.40 for a gin and tonic, 9.50 for a glass of wine. Even the barman looked embarrassed.

Although the pub has a friendly atmosphere and accommodates dogs and children, the food is simply trash. Baps for burgers look like they've fallen off the back of a truck destined for Lidl. Portions are tiny and inconsistent. Meat is over-salted and hard as rubber. Shame as they are friendly enough, but the food is simply terrible.

nice look and friendly atmosphere inside, but went as large group and got seated in the back in a semi-indoor-outdoor area, which was very unattractive with plastic windows, piping and vents covered in aluminium foil etc. Food was medium-priced, but utterly not worth it! - small portions, hardly any veg or salad, cold chips, dry burger buns and meat was...

Visited the Marlborough on a wet and windy Sunday In December. The place was really busy, which is always a great sign... we had not booked and the guys gave us a table no problem... The Roast Beef was fantastic and the service was great! Will certainly be back!

This is a lovely English Pub with food that is well beyond pub food. It was so good we went two times the week we were in Richmond.

Unfortunately this venue has become a haunt of local mothers (word used even though they display no actual care about their children). They arrive early evening of their chats and let there young children run around the pub, noisily, and dangerously to themselves. No one stops them, and worse of all the so called mothers sit there oblivious to what... More

Previously heard good things about the Marlborough so decided to try it for Sunday lunch with a few friends. Reserved a table in the bar by the window 2 days before only to be told on arrival that it had been taken. We were offered an alternative table which was cramped and uncomfortable for 7 adults and two dogs Told... More
