Third visit in as many weeks proved one of the best.For the first time we were not informed of a long wait,although it would be quicker if you got your own drinks from the bar as the "girls" are busy and you do have to wait. One vegetarian in our group was spoiled for choice, and my partner was a... More

I used to eat here often. As a vegetarian I had acces to a number of mains and the specials, BUT they have dropped the Jalepeno Burger for a macaroni cheese patty. Macaroni chees, moulded into a round patty, breaded, fried and served with chips.... Pasta - carbohydrate. Bread bun - Carbohydrate. Chips - Carbohydrate. Not nice

Visited today with friends for Sunday lunch. Arrived at 12.10 and we were seated straight away. Only 2 tables left which were taken within 5 minutes. Very busy but food and drinks arrived within 20 minutes. Good choice of mains. If you buy from the specials board the second meal is free. Pleasant surroundings and even thou it was busy... More

What a surprise.... I took the family for a late Sunday lunch (2:30) expecting it to be too busy. Not the case at all. We were seated promptly, drinks were ordered very quickly and food order taken once drinks arrived (all happened in 5 minutes after sitting down). The food was good on the whole, however the Sunday roast was... More

This pub/restaurant is absolutely the best place in or around this area. The service is superb, the food is wonderful and the staff are absolutely fantastic. I can't praise this place any more than I have. They try to keep families down at one end so that folk without children are not bothered and they are so attentive. PERFECT. Have... More

Marstons pubs always seem to offer the buy one get one free on main meals so they always appear good value. I find the food very average and wouldn't pay over the offer and the Marsh Harrier doesn't buck that trend. The food was OK, the service was good and everyone left very full.

Midweek family visit. Nice menu for the Children, lots of options of how they could personalise their meal. Small playground available but adult supervision needed as near the road entrance. Under 5 play area but Nothing really for children over 5, so something to consider bringing with you. Good food choice for the adults with the 2 for 1 chalkboard... More

We hear about feckless young, but no sign of it here, most of the staff are young, they know what they are doing and they do it very well. The service is efficient, cheerful and friendly, this is a chain, so Bedford and bognor would no doubt be completely interchangeable, but it's well furnished it's clean it's spacious so at... More
