Description: Situated around the corner from The Royal Crescent, The Marlborough Tavern combines the atmosphere of a local pub with the quality of a top restaurant. Two AA rosettes, a horde of local & national awards plus inclusions in The Michelin Guide and Good Food Guide bear testimony to their consistent delivery of high quality cooking. They have a clear approach to food ���find the best and freshest ingredients and to create great tasting, essentially simple dishes where the quality of the produce speaks for itself. Married to that is a passion for inventiveness that sees the menu constantly changing. Food is essentially ��� though not slavishly ��� English in character and takes advantage of locally sourced produce wherever possible. The lunchtime menu features a range of lighter dishes and sharing plates plus some traditional pub classics - and the Sunday roasts are legendary. Their food reputation is matched by their service ��� always friendly and attentive without being intrusive. They have an extensive wine list and selection of local ales, and they can mix a mean cocktail too. Outside they boast what is arguably Bath���s finest pub garden; a walled courtyard space, it���s perfect for summertime lunching and drinking.

“Great Sunday Roast especially great for vegetarians!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

As a vegetarian it's often difficult to find a decent veggie roast on a Sunday but this pub has nailed it. Great service, atmosphere and most importantly delicious roasts! Will definitely be back! ;-)

“Great for Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013

We recently visited the Marlborough Tavern for the first time after hearing mainly good things about it. We had lunch there and were impressed. Having heard portions are small and meals were over-priced we were cautious. One of us had the 3-course set lunch menu for £15 and the other had just the main. We shared the starter and dessert and were pleasantly surprised that it was more than just a taster each. We both came away feeling we had had a good lunch made with good quality produce at good value for money. We'll definitely return.

“Christmas Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

We had our annual Christmas lunch at the Marlborough Tavern last week and it was excellent. Staff were very friendly, food top notch and they really went the extra mile to look after us. Thoroughly recommended. If you haven't been before, it's right next to the circus in a beautiful location. We stayed much longer than we had intended as it's a great place to drink as well as eat.

“GASTRO PUB WITH GREAT FOOD”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

Lively gastro pub with great atmosphere. Food was imaginative and well cooked. Lovely ingredients.
Restaurant, not pub prices, and most people were dining, not the sort of pub for a evening out drinking.
