Good if you want to eat cheap, microwave food with kids around you.

I didn't like this place. It was just like an up market MacDonalds. Noisy and full of kids. The food was ok and I suppose good value. It was typical of this sort of chain of restaurants. Think I'm just used to eating in more intimate establishments that cook their own food.

I had lunch here with my son and 4 grandchildren. Excellent place to take children both for choice and value, all of the food was well cooked and enjoyed by all. Staff very friendly and good with the children.

We have visited this restaurant several times since its opening and enjoyed value for money meals. However, over the last 3 months have visited on 3 different occasions, all midweek lunchtimes, and each time left before eating because of a minimum 40 minute wait for food. At no time did it even appear to be particularly busy! Not sure I... More

Think some people need to learn how to smile and actually be polite to customers; the tone of voice I got spoken in was completely not needed, new manager needs to smile and the old manager needs to get some bloody manners!!

Excellent meal, hot and plenty there, the chalk board has even more choice then you'd ever know. It's fantastic value, whet with the 2 4 1 deal. Then there's the evening deal that is on every single night ....well worth a visit

We called for lunch, on the way to Stansted before our holiday. Immediately on entering Roxanne, our server, acknowledged us and indicated an area where we could choose to sit. We had time to look through the menu before she took our food and drinks order. The food was as we expected for this type of establishment, reasonably priced, hot... 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...

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 appeared to be adequate numbers. We were shown... More
