“Dissapointing”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

We thought this would be a good place to stop for lunch on the way to Blue Planet Aquarium, as its literally just round the corner from there.

Staff were friendly and welcoming, and took our order promptly.

We ordered sandwiches, and at £5 each were expecting something a bit special. They didn't have our first choice of filling, and what I eventually got was the thinnest sliced bread I've ever seen with a very thin layer of filling. There were literally 6 tortilla chips and half a sliced up lettuce leaf on the side. Definitely not what I'd expect for a pub sandwich in this day and age and certainly not worth £5 each.

Oh and by the way, the two for one deal does not include sandwiches! Which isn't made clear

“Rude waitress”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

I have just got back from eating here. We booked a table in the resturant upstairs as this was a surprise for my father for his birthday and retirement. When we got there all the lights were off and we were all made to feel uncomfortable like we were in the way. Eventually someone said "oh your over here" and pointed to a table that was dirty. During the meal the waitress that was serving our table was very rude. She was muttering under her breath and was very clear that she did not want to be serving us. We had a 5 year old little boy with us and she was very sarcastic to him. There was 15 of us eating there and we all felt like we had made a bad choice of venue for this special occasion. My partner and myself ordered the enchiladas which were microwaved and stuck to the plate. The only good thing about this evening was the deserts which were lovely.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

Just finished a lovely lunch at the local Marston's family pub, after enjoying a nice experience at a different Marton's only last week.

Did not plan this, but they happened to be near the shopping outlet, this being our last stop as we head home after a week away.

Read some of the reviews, some of them quite damning, but we has already sat down, so...

Service was impeccable, going above and beyond the call of duty (my daughter banged her head in the playing area, and the waitress offered to bring some ice, which she did).

Food was great, very good value. Desserts very good (I strongly recommend the sticky toffee sponge). But BEST of all, the 2-4-1 offer, which meant we had a super meal (which we couldn't all finish!) and dessert for £37, which is great for a family of 4.

Would definitely recommend if you're in the area.

Thanks to all staff, you were great.

“Nice staff”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Arrived on August Bank Holiday Sunday lunch and found a nice table in the conservatory. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble even though they were very busy. They made sure we were comfortable and ensured the meals were fine. We had sunday roast and the beef was tender, whilst the yorkshire pud was very good. They offered to help us with the crossword we were doing and became as frustrated as we were when the answers were not forthcoming. Thank you for a lovely time. Will return.
