Hardly worth the (long) wait

We visited The Marsh Harrier at the suggestion of a family member who lives within a fifteen minute drive... our journey, by contrast, took over two hours, so we had high hopes. Oh dear... We arrived just after opening time; the restaurant was pretty much empty, apart from staff, of which there... read more

We called into the Marsh Harrier after we came back from my wife's hospital appointments. Time was around 6.30pm and was reasonably busy. We were shown to table straight away and were made most welcome. We looked through the menu and our waitress Haley F asked if we were ready to order. We order 2BBQ Ribs and Chicken meals and...

Nice environment. Foods is ok, you get what you pay for , as you would expect with buy one get one free it is quick or reheated food. Waits can be long and services varies. But not bad value for for price.

OK, it is a budget "2 for 1" pub, but, sunday lunch at £13,55 each (BOGOF) is still a lot of money compared to other similar pubs (Fair'n'square, Hungry Horse etc.) It took along time to get the food, it was cool when we got it, the roast potatoes were just mush, and the beef portion was not great.

Just popped in before my sons friends party, what can I say. Yes it's a Marston but it's a good Marston's. Staff friendly and attentive and food and drink all good on the two for one though my son struggled with the build your own burger!!! Eyes bigger than belly me thinks.

Stopped by the Marsh Harrier for a quick lunch with the family and from the time we walked in it was a great experience. T he staff, the facility and food was absolutely superb. This is the kind of place you definitely want to return too and I certainly will go back.

I thought that I would write a glowing review after reading all the negative comments about this restaurant. We regularly visit the Marsh Harrier for the sunday lunches and sometimes in the evenings too. We have always been happy with the food and level of service at this restaurant and if we have ever had reason to complain(which happens rarely)... More
