Came for lunch with my brother in law who was due back home. our food came out at different times and was very stingy for the price. some of the food was inedible, chips cold...yuk. staff were nice but need to be a bit more on the ball...eg food came then long wait for cutlery, condiments...hence cold food. Poor!!

I should have read the previous reviews before visiting as hadn't been to this pub in quite a while. The decor. garden etc are pretty good but the food was very poor indeed.Also the tables needed a good wipe and chairs were dirty and marked Should have been a sign just to have a drink and leave!.. A glass of... More

Anyone that lives in the vicinity knows that The Marlborough has never been known for good food, very much the opposite, its always been disappointing food. Nevertheless, on the rare cherished summer's day there is nothing better than sitting out in their back garden enjoying a glass, the company of our friends and neighbours and the joy of our children...

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
