My daughter booked a table for after her graduation ceremony. It was inferred that they were busy and could only fit us in at 3pm. We turned up at 3pm and expected it to be bustling- there were a handful of cars in the car park. There were a few people still dining, but they certainly were not busy. Simple... More

I visited the Marchmont Arms a few months ago with a friend for a drink and some lunch and was very pleasantly surprised. The service was quick and the staff were polite. The menu had a lot of choice and it was nice to see food that was in season rather than a typical 'no-change' menu. The food was very... More

It's a shame but after our last meal here we won't be back. It's 10 minutes walk from our house so an ideal local for a meal but the last time we went I felt totally ripped off. A starter which was a mushroom pate that was £4.50 came with a single peice of french bread toasted. Asked for some... More

Last minute Sunday lunch destination chosen because it is local. The food was faultless and reasonably priced. The wine was a good choice. Our waiter was very attentive - in fact he apologised for the delay to our main course before we had really identified it as a problem But the service, interestingly, deteriorated the less busy the restaurant became....

we like this restaurant a lot. Food is good. Service is excellent. small negative is that it is very noisy, so not great for convivial evening of chat with friends

Having been recommended the Marchmont, we were looking forward to Sunday lunch for 8 - but what a let down. The food when it finally arrived was tasteful - but the service was diabolical. We did not expect to have to ask for plates (for the sharing platter), glasses for the water or vegetables for the roast - which never... More

Stopped in for a drink, food smelt so good we ended up having lunch. Very good if a little on the pricey side.

Lovely pub/restaurant, excellent garden and good atmosphere. The only let down for us is having to queue to order at the bar and then carry a tray of drinks yourself down narrow steps into the garden...can be quite tricky! If the system could be changed for the better it would make a positive difference.

Always loved it here, came in for lunch today, not busy, music shocking and too loud.... Bar (child) didn't have a clue how to pour a pint and poured about three into the drip tray, baked Camembert we have regularly came with half the toast and two crap bits of celery with a horribly burnt hazelnut and apricot chutney... What... More

we went for dinner one Saturday evening. Despite booking in advance there was no record of our booking when we arrived. Luckily a table was available, or maybe not! Drinks were very slow to arrive, we'd ordered our food before the aperitif got to our table. service was haphazard, the waitress had no knowledge of the wine list. The meze... More
