Amazing steak

Came here and had a steak.. Was beautifully cooked and tender, served with a runny peppercorn sauce which I thought was a bit odd to start with but it was the best I ever tasted. Both myself and partner cleared our plates and feel satisfied. Elliott the bar manager was very helpful and friendly and... read more

There is literally nothing I can recommend about my visit to the newly opened Piano Bar in Marlborough previously The Crown Hotel. Hailed as a show piece for the new landlord, Ian Wilkie, I suggest you never set foot in these premises. He is both rude, obnoxious and offensive. The filth is apparent from the moment you walk in the... More

Visited the newly refurbished establishment for a Tapas selection. When ordering food the staff did not know what some of dishes were or what they contained. When the dishes arrived the salmon that had been ordered was replaced with a risotto ball without informing us, the triple cooked chips were cold & the meze selection was flavourless. The portions were... More

We'd seen some good facebook info from the management team so we went in for a drink and first impressions were good. New furniture and welcoming staff. There was no live music that night so it was just a pub. Then the drinks, a large glass of Malbec was £7.95 (a third more than local rivals charge) and a small... More

Stopping off for an overnight stay in Marlborough, we discovered that the town is full of tea rooms but short of anywhere to eat after 6pm apart from pubs and predictable chain restaurants such as Pizza Express, Prezzo and Ask. Luckily we came across the Crown Inn, which looked a bit shabby inside but offered a menu that was clearly... More

This pub/hotel had only been open for a week, so the towels, bedding etc were all brand new. The staff couldn't do enough to make sure we enjoyed our stay. They really went the extra mile (especially Matt!) and asked for our views and suggestions so they could make it even better. They are still upgrading the rooms. Our room... More

I dined at this restaurant/pub in February when I visited Marlborough with my partner. We meet some friends here and had a very enjoyable meal. All three courses were delicious. The staff were very helpful and were happy to assist you by recommending dishes from the menu. The lady serving me even reserves the last pork dish for me so... More

We popped in here last Saturday as I had heard that there was a new chef. We were not disappointed with delicious food (everything is homemade), attentive service and well priced. We will return!

I recently visited the crown, the food was amazing and the staff were so friendly! The chef was very polite and despite it being busy he still managed to pop into the bar and check everyone was happy with their meals. I would definitely recommend!!!
