Had a great lunch with my family. Large portions (veggie option average size) with attentive service the ambiance was fab for a Sunday lunch. Deserts were brilliant and again larger portions. Worth a visit and must try the fisherman's platter to share -yum. Value for money worth a visit

We went for a family easter dinner with a group of 12, including 5 young (and lively) kids, and had an amazing lunch. Service was great and the owners made us feel very welcome right from the second we walked in. The landlady also took the kids into the garden for an impromptu easter Egg egg hunt. Amazing stuff. Lovely... More

We took my 93 year old mother in law for a meal and were very pleased with both the food and the service.

I can't praise the staff at the Marchmont Arms highly enough.We had a bit of an emergency today and your kindness and first aid skills were very much appreciated. Thank you to you all for today.

Have had both business lunches and dinners at the Marchmont. Never had anything but good quality food and service. Pleasant rural location, and the restaurant has nice decor and ambience. Would recommend for all types of occasions.

Had my 30th birthday here at the weekend. Hired the conservatory which came with a nice little outside area too for smokers. The staff were very attentive and kept coming to check that everything was OK. Event helping us carry the many bottles of prosecco and trays of shots :) I was allowed to put up decorations, play my own... More

I love this restaurant and it serves great food all day every day! My favourite meal is the pulled pork roll. They have rooms for reservation and spaces for parties and lots of outdoor space for kids to play in. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a place to hold a large birthday meal or to go... More

A large group of us met up for a get together last night and thought it would be a good idea to eat as well. It was very busy, so totally understandable that we couldn't get a table in the restaurant, therefore we were more than happy to order where we sat in the bar area. We (my wife and... More

We had a pleasant Saturday lunch. Waiting staff were lovely. Food on the main was good although two of our party ordered chicken, bacon & avocado salad which was disappointing. Very plain, distinct lack of bacon, no dressing and the avocado was rock hard and un eatable. Felt that they were really not worth the £12.95 charge.

We wanted to meet friends for lunch, so, after reading reviews on Trip Advisor, chose The Marchmont Arms, as it was about equidistance from both our homes. The staff were very pleasant, helpful and friendly. As both couples had arrived an hour or so before the lunch booking, we sat in the lounge, drank coffee and caught up on family... More
