We visited the Marquis on Saturday night. The staff, as always, were very welcoming. However, my husband and I ordered the venison. At £26 a portion, we expected it to be lovely. However, it was tough and chewy. Also, little things, such as we had to open and pour the wine ourselves. Never usually a problem, however when you're paying... More

I can't recommend the lodging enough. The food and service is excellent and reasonably priced in my opinion for the quality offered. Their suite was very cute, well decorated and large enough for my family of four (2 adults, a toddler and a baby). We will definitely be visiting again if only for the food but each time we get...

This is a restaurant with rooms rather than a hotel, but this did not stop the staff providing excellent service. The rooms are beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. The whole building was a bit too warm in the hot weather, but they do provide fans and were happy to move us to a room which did not get as much... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come on in. Take a look around. You might just be surprised. For while the Alkham Valley, indeed Alkham village itself, suggests genteel old England at its most rural and unspoiled, the Marquis itself is something else... It's a strikingly contemporary restaurant and hotel. The product of a major renovation in 2008, what was once the village's pub, The Marquis of Granby, has been utterly transformed. Space, light, fine furnishings and beautiful fabrics and the opportunity to fine tune every detail hasn't been missed. The restaurant is a revelation. Head Chef Andrew King's seasonally inspired and locally sourced menus are as fresh as they are imaginative, and the elegant 21st century styling is exceptional. Queen sized pocket sprung beds are swathed in the finest cotton. Sumptuous fabrics dress windows and chairs. And an eclectic collection of art completes the mood, the mix and the personality that makes this place unique. Boutique chic in the heart of the English countryside? You've found it. You've arrived. ... more   less
