This was a family meal, but so disappointing, we were urged to have a sharing starter as there was a wait for the meal, Told starter would serve 2, but it would have served four. Offered extra bread but declined,as would probably have been charged. Roast potatoes were undercooked and not crispy, gravy far too salty,and portion of greens was... More

Had our Christmas do here last night and I 100% agree with the last review "Customer service was sacrificed by greed to monopolise upon the Christmas trade.".......LETS SEE HOW MANY PEOPLE WE CAN CRAM IN AND GRAB MONEY FROM. The food was cold when it got to our table, veg came out 10 minutes into our meal, (we had to... More

Tonight we celebrated Christmas at 5 he Marchmont, well to be honest that's stretching the imagination. The food, along with service was reasonable but the atmosphere and lack of space was unacceptable. When booking we were told we would have to leave the table to accommodate a second sitting. This wasn't a major issue. However, when it came time, the... More

The Marchmont Arms - just outside Hemel Hempstead - is a buzzing, bustling pub restaurant with a labyrinth of different rooms and levels. It's open for food all afternoon and evening, and it's easy to see why it's so busy. The food is reliably good, and good value. There's a menu to suit all tastes. And the staff are knowledgeable...

This used to be our favourite place to go for a drink or a meal. Not any more. Orders are consistently wrong and food is not as described. We paid them to cater my mother's funeral and the room wasn't set up when we arrived, we wanted an open tab for all attendees but received tickets, for one drink per... More

A very nice restaurant and pub set in an old converted house. Lots of character. Good selection of wines and spirits. Excellent grounds which are stunning in the summer months. Food us very nice however the service can be extremely slow . Saying that dying our last visit it was quite reasonable. Good Childrens menu and baby changing facilites.

We normally go here for coffee as the chairs in the bar are comfy and we can guarantee getting a seat. sometimes stay for lunch which is always tasty, although a bit pricier than normal. Have eaten in the restaurant and the food is really good.

Have been a few times now and have always had great food and atmosphere. The service is either excellent or on the higher side of average, but always a lovely place to go. Booking recommended.

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
