We were here last night for a birthday celebration. We had champagne which was OK but not exceptional. The food was OK but again we have had better for the money we paid! The staff were also OK, but do not seem to have been trained or told about "Customer service"!! The place was not busy, which to us meant... More

We held our wedding reception at The Marchmont Arms in Sept 2013 and we were so impressed at the service and help we received. Tina helped us so much and from the start seemed determined to save us as much stress as possible! Things ran so smoothly on the day, welcome drinks were waiting for us on arrival, followed by...

Lovely venue and Food was very good. They didn't have a particular champagne we ordered but offered a discount on another bottle, the staff were friendly and went out of their way to reserve a table in the bar/conservatory area for us. We would certainly go back again!

I have been to this pub for lunch on several occasions, when we first started eating here, they had just changed their chef, the food was absolutely amazing, however I visited this Monday for some lunch with some friends, and to be honest, I think that same chef must have had a day off. I had roast dinner, it was... More

We have eaten here before and the food has been pricey but nice. Went one Saturday lunchtime for a treat as we were celebrating, there was only two of us and the restaurant was quite. We were shown to our table but not offered any drinks, had a look at the menu and decided what we wanted. A group of... More

Excellent family friendly pub. I often take a trip here for a nice relaxing drink in the huge beer garden. Normally after walking the dogs, who are also welcome. Really nice restaurant too with great food if you want to dine formally. If not, the bar menu is just as good for a meal in the garden. Two down points... More

We have eaten both in the restaurant and garden several times now and have never been disappointed. We always receive a warm welcome and all the staff are great and very helpful. We have never had a complaint about any of the food ordered it has always been excellent. Can be a bit pricey but you know that before ordering... More

I've got to say...the Marchmont has become my place of choice for a lunchtime treat if I have time. Yes, maybe a little pricey on some counts and they do cock things up on the odd occasion but generally the food is good and the service second to none. They seem to have a new set of staff but still... More

Visited at 5pm on a Sunday as a couple. We had a reservation for the main restaurant however, whilst it looked lovely and bright and airy, it was such a nice day outside that sat outside instead as the menu is the same (just no waiter/waitress service). The pub has a lovely large outside garden area, with plenty of space... More
