Decent but pricey.

This place has a lovely atmosphere and the food was great. The quality is not the highest though and the restaurant is cold, we sat in the bar which was very comfortable and the price was more than we expected! Good food though, we would visit again.

Excellent food, excellent customer service in a beautiful setting with a fantastic atmosphere. I'm guessing they must have taken on board the recent negative reviews. Would definitely recommend.

I like this restaurant because they carry on serving from lunch time into the evening. They don't finish lunch at 2.30 or 3 pm like a lot of local eateries do. We arrived just before 3 pm & enjoyed a 2 course lunch with a sharing plate starter & different main courses. I have tried most of the sharing plate... More

First Visit to The Marchmont as visiting Family in Hemel...As Dr's and Nurses we expected high standards but alas the dirty worn cutlery set the alarm bells ringing..A glass if Rose was returned tasting like Vinegar..The Mezz Starter looked like an Artist's Palate with dips ,breads and vegetable thrown together on a slate tile..Four Mains arrived but a steak ordered...

Was recommended this restuarant by work colleagues as a venue for a business meal. absolutely fabulous meal and service. the atmosphere was really good as we had been seated in the conservatory which allowed our group to enjoy a truly entertaining time. Highly recommended.

First visit today; looked for a venue offering good food and the menu looked varied and interesting. On arrival, we opted for the fixed price three course lunch. Amazing value, and delicious food. An outstanding place with really helpful nice staff. We'll be back! Next time we'll try some of the other tempting dishes on offer. Highly recommended.

In a world full of very 'average' Sunday roasts the Marchmont Arms breaks the mould with its rich, flavourful offering. - £13.95 for a huge plate of roast beef - 13.95 for a beautiful steak and ale pie (highly recommended) - £15.95 Roast Trio: Roast beef, lamb and chicken (amazing quantity!) The price reflects the quality but it's still good... More

What a find!!!! Great place for lunch. Huge menu to choose from. Food excellent. Try the fish finger sandwich (like nothing I've seen before) or the lobster brioche roll so packed full of fresh lobster. Lovely drinks menu and beautiful desserts. Mid price range. Will definitely be back. Plenty of parking. Well done.
