    I love this pub.

    Fantastic atmosphere, food is brilliant.

    Cool and trendy gastro pub with a real mix of people. Warm inside, lovely contemporary but homely furnishings with just the right amount of glam. And they serve Hoegaarden...with fish and chips and mushy peas. Love it.

    Garden perfect for lounging about in the summer too.

    Do yourself a favour and if you are in bath, go here

    If only all "British" grub tasted like this...

    1.  This isn't one of those pubs that typically serves greasy fries and chicken strips.  It was more like gourmet "pub" food that was reasonably priced.  Of all the fish and chip dishes I tried during my vacay in Bath, Oxford, and London, the ones here were the b-e-s-t!

    2.  I don't remember specifically what the rest of my family ordered (burgers, pot pie, and grilled chicken dishes) but I had a bite of all of them and it was great.  My brothers said the beer on tap was really good.

    3.  Nice, laid back atmosphere with with a friendly staff.  Our waiter/bartender was a doll, I just wanted to pack him in my suitcase back to San Diego......for my girls back home of course ;-)  But I'll be back Marlborough....

    You def. have to stop by if you are in Bath...Cheers!

    Excellent Pub Grub - Has made the Michelin Guide 2009.
    The Chips are great. Although the best hand cut ones only come if you order a Steak.
    Be sure to book on Fridays and Saturdays to avoid disappointment.
    Very nice sun trap beer garden at rear of the Pub.
    Good selection of beers including Staropramen and Hoegaarden also very good selection of wines.

    A regular haunt when I visit Bath and an even more regular haunt for those I stay with! I can see why; a big (but not too big), airy pub with a mix of tables and comfy chairs and (joy of joys) a walled garden.
    The food is great, mixing tapas style dishes to share with handsome plates of pub classics at lunch time. Or more formal (but not too posh) cuisine for dinner. Ingredients are mostly local, seasonal and very fine indeed. Just writing this is making me hungry!

    This is a great pub to come to if you have a spare afternoon that feel like whiling away with a newspaper and a pint/coffee. The views across the golf course are pretty relaxing on one side of the pub, and it's a short walk away from the Royal Crescent and Victoria Park, if you fancy grabbing a bite to eat or a spot of lunch. It's the relaxed nature of this pub that makes it so appealing. It gets busier in the evenings and they often have acts on - usually bands or comedians - that can be worth a look, but it's the daytime vibes that keeps me coming back here.

    Wonderful bistro pub. Excellent food, excellent service, a warm atmospheric bar, and courtyard garden. Can't recommend highly enough.

    we went to the tavern after much recomendation. it was a very welcoming place with super staff. we found the food not excellent, sadly. starter of terrine++ was bland to my palate as indeed was the 45 day sirloin. it was really good steak - perfectly cooked rare, but just short of flavour - especially for well hung meat. my wife and sister in law ate the bread pudding which was undercooked with hard apricots and soggy bread. this was credited from the bill. so a lovely place with lovely people but disapointing food after all the advertsiing and hype.
    phil
    ps my b in l had the steak with the pepper sauce and said it was good - so who knows!
    pps trying the chequers next

    Love the food, the ambiance and the beer. A real pleasure and with genuine knowledge about the producers of the meat and vegetables served.
