“Hurrah...real fish and chips”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Marble city do really nice bar food. Lots of choice with a daily roast, fish, chicken, stir-fry etc., Opted for the beer battered fish with chips and mushy peas!!! Absolutely the real deal and a nice size of fish also. Only downside of the Marble City is the actual size of the place. It is very cramped, particularly towards the back of the bar - tables way too close together - you could eat off the place on the table beside you. Otherwise...good food and good price.

“Stylish and tasty”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Sleek and cool, Marble City Bar offers really good food (although the Irish Coffee is a bit too strong)). It might seem a bit pricey, but the quality of the food is definitely worth it!

“Great lunch”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Ploughman's sandwich and Irish stew were both very tasty in this bustling pub. The server was helpful with advice and the place has nice character.
