I visited this gem of a local pub on Richmond Hill with my friends the other day.The beer( real ale )was superb ...so much so that we stayed longer than intended!!!! The food was excellent too.But what really impressed us was the friendly and cheerful staff.Thank you Kaj,Amy,Mat ,Jason and others.We will be back.

This pub has a great atmosphere, both day and night. The garden is what really makes it unique. It is a huge outside eating area with an assortment of different sized wooden tables, surrounded by trees and foliage. The food and service are top notch.

A lovely looking pub both from the street, inside and their large garden area. But a rude, moody waitress spoilt our visit, making us feel bad for turning up 5 minute before the kitchen had opened. We were never brought menus either. At the bar waiting for a drink she was having a go at another staff member and even... More

Had a family day out in Richmond park and popped into the Marlborough for lunch. It's clearly under new management as the food was tasty and the staff were efficient. We had a delicious Sunday lunch and we 'll be back

The Marlborough could be fantastic...except it's not!. It's in a lovely part of Richmond so would otherwise be worth a trip. As a pub it's fine, quite cosy though the decor which tries to be funky is very tired. The prices for drinks are high compared to others in the area (and they are not cheap either). We've given up...

I've been to the Marlborough many times over the last 10 years. Have popped in for a pint on Christmas Day, and have enjoyable eaten their many times. Today, however, was a real disappointment. Venue and atmosphere was as reliable as ever, but the service was mediocre, followed up by lousy food. My partner and I shared some mushroom and... More

Dreadful service, dreadful staff, and dirty garden. We were served RAW SAUSAGES with our meal that we seen the chef shrug off, and we were offered a round of "Fosters" for our experience. Avoid this pub, and head the The Roebuck - which is where we went after, much better service and atmosphere if your in this area.

I think everyone agrees that the location, the decor and the garden are excellent. But that's not the reason we're reviewing the pub. I've lived in the neighbourhood for 10 years on/off and the Malborough is my go-to local. However the risk attached in eating there is real hit and miss. 5 years ago, they were heading in the right... More
