Always enjoy meeting the family here for drinks. I find the staff very helpful. Good disabled slope and access to bar and toilet with easy access for the wheelchair BUT whose decision was it to put all the disabled parking bays on a comparatively steep slope? I am independent in getting in and out... read more

It was for her birthday on 29 th March .due to a mistake on their part with the time of the booking it seemed our day would be ruined.. Her partner rang The Marchment on the off chance of a table. He was told... More

On a cold Saturday we went to a wedding reception here. The arrival drinks were served in the lounge area which was warm and comfy. Dinner was in the conservatory, superb food, beautifully served with good gaps between courses. The lady in charge (think her name was Tina) and her staff were very efficient and helpful. Would recommend for a... More

We went to the Marchmont Arms for our Mother's Day lunch today and it exceeded expectations. Despite the fact that it was so busy, the staff were attentive at all times, the food was well cooked and hot when it arrived and nothing was too much trouble. We will certainly be visiting here again. A big thank you for helping... More

Just been to the Marchmont and was very disappointed. We drove 140 miles each way to the restaurant as it was a meal for my mums 80th birthday. Bar service was slow. Table service was equally slow and was delivered by extremely brusque staff. Food was not great. The group was split onto 2 tables so we couldn't all chat.... More

Brilliant atmosphere, lovely restaurant. Staff are friendly and caring. Food was delicious! Worth the money! Not great when you have screaming kids next to you late on Friday evening but apart from that, it's great!

Half an hour late for table. Number of reminders required to serve orders. Late coffees offered free with no grace from an overstretched member of staff. Bad in a crisis and poor on apologies.

I have to write this even though I know the Marchmont has a fairly good reputation, but this was our experience. Firstly I think it has become very clicky and very casual in its approach to delivering excellent customer service. I bought a drink at the bar before ordering a meal for my wife and I, we had a second... More

I visited yesterday for lunch and I was very impressed. The online reservation system was easy to use and the restaurant area was very pleasant. Our server was Rachel who was an excellent waitress and an example to many. The menu was very varied and our choices we well presented and delicious. Wine was well priced and overall the lunch...

I've never been here before and was pleasantly surprised. The staff are friendly and attentive and the food was very well presented and tasted good. I had the crab and crayfish starter, followed by the house burger and then a sticky toffee pudding. Was really good - although I wish I had got the linguine seafood main like my friend,... More
