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. 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 plus some traditional pub classics - and the Sunday roasts are legendary. They have an extensive wine list and selection of local ales. Outside they boast what is arguably Bath���s finest pub garden; a walled courtyard space, it���s perfect for summertime lunching and drinking.

My husband took me The Marlborough Tavern for my birthday meal; It was a great choice! Jenny our waitress was smiley, polite and inattentive without being intrusive. We had pork belly, brill with a yummy fish cake and the citrus lentil side could be a stand alone dish, all delicious. But the stand out dish was a humble onion soup, so fragrant and delicate, the chef should be very proud of that! The beer and wine were good too.

Thank Jill S
