A real shame. Love this place & so local. Ordered Easter Sunday Roast Dinner, but the vegetables were clearly tired. They looked wilted, and like they had been sat around all day and then heated up. Lovely and soggy... disappointed. (Especially at £17.50 for a roast) If I'd wanted a shrivelled up old vegetable I would have stayed in bed.

Baffled at some comments about tasteless food as I thoroughly enjoyed my arancini, monkfish and sour cherry florentine & never wanted it to end. Great selection of meals for a pescetarian too. We visited for my SIL's birthday and she had a lovely time. We had several aperitifs and cocktails which I was in the mood for more than wine... More

The staff couldn't have been more helpful, attentive & friendly which is something I always hope for when dining out, so I'd like to thank them for that.

We are regulars to the Marchmont Arms, particularly after work in the summer. The refurbishment was well needed and makes the place look appropriate for its prices. It's more stylish and a great place to relax and catch up with friends. We love the relaxed gardens and terrace and there a wide range of drinks to chose from. The food... More

This restaurant is nice without being likeable. We have used it for several family lunches (10-15 including kids) when the meals have been OK and the service reasonable in the circumstances. There is room for the kids to go play in the garden when they get bored. We have also tried it for a couples Saturday evening and found it... More

Birthday lunch,party of 7. Ordered the chicken, bacon and avocado salad. The salad turned out to be 60% carrot?? There was no spinach or broccoli as advertised.
