Relaxed and friendly, good quality hearty cuisine

This is a lovely restaurant a short walk away from the main high street of the town. A friendly welcome and efficient and relaxed service. The food was very good and the menu varied. For a less formal meal we sat in the window seat in the bar area. The dining room is well appointed but I imagine... read more

We popped in for lunch, on spec and although orders had just closed they made us welcome. We come here about twice a year ; the service as usual was charming and friendly . The food was superb. We ate from the lunchtime menu but could have chosen from several yummy al la carte dishes. Starters Black-pudding salad, Vichyssoise, yummy,... More

A few of us met for lunch on a warm and sunny day and were greeted with the most delicious glass of prosecco with elderflower and raspberry which was an excellent start and we were able to sit outside which added to the ambiance. The menu offered a good choice and certainly delivered on flavour and quality. The staff are... More

I had a lunch deal here, it was competitively priced, quite good quality and a nice twist on the norm. Service was quick and I will surely return when I am back in the area. I'm not sure if i'd pay more for the meal, so whether i'd be as pleased with a full price dinner is yet to be... More

In the company of at least four others I have eaten here many, many times. The atmosphere is good but quirky, the food excellent, the service top notch. So what's to dislike? Generally, when we are in Marlborough we stay for our weekend at 'The Cask and Ball' in the centre of the high street. We park our cars there... More

I've eaten here several times over the years and it's consistently good. The menu offers a good choice of meat and fish dishes, although I do sometimes think that the veggie options don't receive as much attention as they should. However, I've always had excellent meals here. The portions are deceptively generous, and the food is elegantly presented. The atmosphere... More

Excellent food and a great atmosphere. The restaurant always has a constantly changing menu, which uses seasonal produce.

Lovely restaurant with exceptionally good food. I like EVERYTHING on the menu - the ice cream with butterscotch sauce is a must! This restaurant is a really good find.
