£26 to £40
Gastro Pub
Just around the corner from Bath's Royal Crescent, The Marlborough Tavern combines the atmosphere of a local pub with the food quality you’d expect of a top restaurant. Two AA rosettes, and inclusions in The Michelin Guide and Good Food Guide bear testimony to the quality of both food and service. It’s no wonder it's won the Bath Gastropub of the Year title more than any competitors.

Food is essentially, though not slavishly, English in character and takes advantage of locally sourced produce wherever possible. Its food reputation is matched by their service - always friendly and attentive without being intrusive, and there's an extensive wine list and selection of local ales to choose from. The Marlborough's pub garden is arguably Bath’s finest; a walled courtyard space, that’s perfect for summertime lunching and drinking.

    We had roast beef with a side of cauliflower cheese. We shared the sticky toffee for pudding. We started with Bath gem and then a glass of Gamay. The food was excellent, tasty tender beef which could have been slightly pinker. The veg were fresh and well cooked. Just had room to share the pudding which was light and with a gorgeous toffee sauce. Delicious gastropub lunch.

    Wife had the belly pork roast, I had the beef rump. Couldn’t complain at all, wife was a little picky as she wanted more gravy. But overall 5/5 for quality of food.

    Food was decent. The roast beef was too chewy and overcooked. I ordered a fish and chip. It was better than the roast beef my mother had. The service was super slow and had to wait for awhile to pay the bill.
