Top Gastro Pub. Superb food, lovely staff. Lovely building, fantastic atmosphere. Beautiful drinks all round whether chambers, wine, beer, cocktails or whatever your fancy. Enormous garden, small outdoor bar for summertime. Perfect for private functions and parties. Has conservatory that can be hired for all manner of functions.

Just love going to the Marchmont - the service is good without being intrusive, the food is always of a high standard with a good choice of wines interesting puddings and a great atmosphere - and all at a reasonable price what more could you ask for?
