I visited in one of the afternoon. Great atmosphere never get crowded. Great menu, wide range of pub food, although the price is bit higher than my usual pub, but its not bad for central London.
Super friendly customer service, they always check if I am happy with everything.
I was in the same pub few months ago, in the evening, there was over crowded and no food was served just because they were huge group of people eating and the kitchen only cook for them but not other customers.

My son and i went to the Marlborough arms on the Friday and Saturday night for something to eat as it was just around the corner from our hotel. It was very busy but we got a table and the food came very quickly within 15 minutes on both occasions. The portion sizes were fine the fish was large. It was all cooked fresh.

Just arrived in London and went to the Marlborough Arms for a bit of supper and were disappointed. We waited for almost an hour for our food and when it came my husband's plate was extremely hot but the food was cold. I had the cheese sandwich with barnston pickle and there was very little cheese and the bread was very dry. Not a positive welcome to London.

An average London pub - staff not exactly exuding charm. Reasonable selection of beers and a fair selection of wines.Several TV sets on the go with different channels, so if peace and quiet is your thing its not for you.

A lovely spacious London pub, which we visited for something to eat and a couple of drinks before going to the theatre. Great menu at affordable prices - fish and chips, burger with red onion & stilton, chips and salad, pint of Guinness and bottle of pear Kopparberg cider for under £25! Not bad for central London. Nice buzzing atmosphere and we really enjoyed it.
