Make sure you check the restaurant doesn't have any parties before you go........

I had booked this restaurant for a night out with friends after being there on 3 separate occasions before. So I knew what I was getting..... or at least I thought I did. I arrived at 8.45 promptly, and was told by the manageress that a hen party had arrived 45 minutes late, and subsequently the... read more

Enjoyed a nice lunch. As usual, the menu caters well for meat and fish eaters. This time, being a vegetarian, I was pleasantly surprised by the good selection of vegetarian dishes to choose from. We switched places from the balcony to indoors when it became too chilly and this was not a problem. The place has both a casual as... More

Allow me explain, in a normal world a hen night is a special thing and normally only happens once. No welcome at all from staff at all, we went... More

We visited the Marchmont Arms for a hen night last night 18/7/15. I had heard that this was a quality establishment. As we were sat at out tables we realized that they were 3 separate tables not attached as we would expect for a hen night. we then realized that this was an open room and had so many staff... More

We took some friends for Sunday lunch and we all very much enjoyed the 3 roast dish. There was plenty of meat, pleasant vegetables and extra gravy on request. The staff were very pleasant and attentive. The restaurant has character and apart from a little evidence of water damage on the ceiling was clean and appropriately decorated. We have been... More

Lovely restaurant and bar with rustic feel, serving a good range of food. Suitable for larger groups, as well as intimate couples. Also has outside patio overlooking gardens. Very nice.

We visited on Monday evening, for a meal with colleagues including a guest from the US. The evening was beautiful and so lovely to sit in the garden. However, the tables were dirty and untidy and the food was not up to usual standards. I would usually mention this at the time, so it could be rectified but given my... More

The Marchmont serves lovely food in the restaurant and also has a really good bar with very friendly, approachable staff. I have eaten and drank here many times and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent and beautifully presented. I've never had a colder nicer tasting Becks Vier anywhere I've been! I'll be back again asap!!!
