Nice pub, lovely staff

Went there for food a few weeks ago. The pub was well lit (maybe a bit too bright), and it had a nice atmosphere. We had a few drinks and then later decided to have some food. I had the cod and chips. It was served beautifully on a slate, and tasted lovely! The food did however take a while... read more

Three of us called in for lunch, with the dog. It was the coldest day of the year, a few days after Chrismas. The dining area comprises two rooms, with the bar at one end. The room was well lit, with wooden floor, nicely spaced tables of decent size and very plain decor. The overall impression was rather sparse with... More

Chose this for lunch with my mum as it had good reviews. The menu was Ok but not inspiring, as was the food. The chips, however, were delicious! The waiter/barman was polite and very pleasant, apologising for the delay in the arrival of our food. It has quite a sparse look/decor and it was a little cold - think the... More

Knowing this pub had been closed for a few months, to find it open again was good news, it was a really great to meet nine friends for lunch. Food and service excellent. Ambience great. All and all a good experience.

A group of us dropped in here for lunch. The new renovations are really stylish and on-trend for Marlborough. The menu is quite an impressive read, lots if seafood. The whitebait and the mussels were really delicious. The crab meat mains was also enjoyed by the husband. Our friends enjoyed their mussels and also the lamb and pork pie. The... More

The Crown closed a few months ago, always a very good restaurant, often lacking in customers, perhaps given the "off the high street" location. We had a lot of lovely meals there. It has now reopened with new owners. We visited on Saturday, it had only opened the day before. First off it has been completely refurbished inside including some... More

Friendly place. Seemed to lack a little atmosphere and flavours could be worked on. I'll be back though as the fish was big and fresh.

My wife and visited this pub/restaurant on a Saturday night. It wasn't hugely busy despite there being a food show on in town on the common. Bit disappointed that one of the main memo items - a stuffed sea bass dish was not available . But overall we had a very good meal and will come back again. Good sea... More
