We had visited Kew Gardens for the day and wanted a relaxed pub meal in Richmond for the evening. We found The Marlborough and thought it looked perfect. Big garden. BBQ. Relaxed families sitting in the big garden. We found a table and chairs in the garden, which could have done with a good clean but we sat down and... More

I've been living on Richmond Hill since 2006 and it confuses me why the Marlborough is still bad after all these years. It's got the great location, it's a lovely building and walking in it feels welcoming, but it just seems to keep getting it wrong. The food has always been poor, especially to other gastropubs in town, especially the... More

I visited this pub in the evening quite late on with friends for a meal. Having never been to Richmond I was expecting good things. The Pub interior was an eclectic mix of traditional and refurbished furniture which goes with the period building. The Drinks were good but the food was not. I had the Duck Wings and Lamb Chops...

I really hope Marlborough management is reading this review. The Cons are: Appalling customer service, average to low quality food The pros are: good location, large space for groups, good mixed crowd (+loads of families with babies), great beer garden The pub has every potential to be great because of the location and the great interior and the huge garden...

Starter of salmon fish cakes and orange salad was delicious followed by decent plate of bangers and mash. A warm welcome, unpretentious yet sophisticated staff. Huge back garden. Doesn't disappoint. Will definitely come back.

Really like this pub and the beer garden is great too. However, the last 2 times we have eaten here we have been horrified at the food and won't be rushing back to eat

Half way into our meal of burge and braised beef brisket which wasn't great and completely tasteless, we were very rudely reminded by Adam (assistant manager) that we need to move somewhere else as this table was booked from 6.30pm. We said that we were expecting more people, he insisted we move without even offering to help with where. We... More

Always a good atmosphere, great food and drink. Some staff could be friendlier though; sometimes too many long faces at the bar.

This is a great traditional british pub and well worth a visit. The food is good value, the service is friendly and it feels really homely and relaxed. I love the warmth when you enter this pub. Sometimes we visit with our 2 dogs on a walk and it's really nice to see such a welcome with a jar of... More
