I had a similar experience to Lisa S. I went to Marples with my mum and a friend and was told that there were no tables available and there was at least 2 people waiting for the next tables to be free. Not wanting to wait around and then be rushed through our time there, we left and went to... More

Sorry we was unable to seat you when you visited Marples. However as i have stated in my response to Lisa and as you have stated in your review, anyone is welcome to reserve a table to avoid disappointment. Also we wouldn't rush our customers through their visit, not too sure what you mean by that comment. More

I really feel I need to reply to the last review of Marples. How would Lisa feel if she had reserved a table at a restaurant and turned up only to find the staff had given her table away to a walk in customer? Not very happy I'm guessing. Marples have a loyal customer base who keep the restaurant going... More

Not one for writing reviews, but it would seem that having had second poor customer experience at the now seemingly "exclusive" Marples, I had to express my disgust. It would seem that unless you are part of the Marples scene you will not be able to have a table. Reserved signs on 50% of unoccupied tables and even the owner... More

i'm sorry you was not able to be seated at Marples. i'm assuming it was a Saturday when you came in as we are always very busy on a Saturday morning for breakfast . We do take reservations for tables and we do have a lot of regular customers but we always try our best to seat everyone that walks... More

Appeared very disorganized..... had to wait a very long time in between courses..got quite fed up with this. Staff need specific role and areas. Having said this the main course was fine....but the fruit tart was bland....

Had a lovely meal at Marples following a spur of the moment decision to look for somewhere in Cleethorpes. Went mostly for the gluten free selection but was impressed with overall choice and prices. Would definitely go again if in the area.

The weather has changed and this was to be a last chance to grab a day at the seaside before autumn arrives. Marples was very clean and smart looking so we went in to get a coffee and my husband had a portion of plum bread. The staff are excellent being helpful and friendly and showing a real interest in...

Nice place, pleasant staff. Food tasty and of good quality. The big breakfast isn't as big as I'd liked but for the money can't grumble. Would suggest a new menu item of the "huge breakfast" with some extra items like black pudding, extra sausage etc. I would have gone for that if available even for an extra cost. Thanks good... More
