Marlborough Description

The Marlborough, set in the luxurious, leafy setting of Richmond Hill, boasts one of the largest pub beer gardens in London. It’s an idyllic haven for the approaching long and bright, lazy summer days. Perched on the top of Richmond Hill surrounded by an abundance of botanical influences, and with both Richmond Park and the river Thames just a stroll away, the great outdoors is evident indoors throughout The Marlborough’s impressive eating and drinking spaces. The

Marlborough delivers carefully crafted British fare with dishes such as tender confit pork belly with pearl barley, morel mushrooms and wild garlic with an Aspalls Cyder sauce; pan-fried sea trout, peas, asparagus and a baby gem broth.

“Easily one of the best beer gardens in south London, if not the whole of London. All you need is a sunny day and hey presto, the perfect Sunday!”

The London Bar Man, London (7 years 5 months 17 days ago)

“The Marlborough is under New Management so definitely worth a visit or a re-visit for those reviewers who visited in the past. Atmosphere is wonderful. Staff friendly and the service was fast.”

Sally Hicks, Stratford upon Avon (9 years 11 months 6 days ago)

“Despite offering an impressive level of service and exceptionally good quality pub restaurant menu during the first 2 weeks of reopening, the level /speed of service dramatically declined soon afterwards (an observation not limited to my experience. On more than one occasion complete strangers also waiting for their food have commented to me, frustrated at the time -up to 1hour- it was taking for their food orders to arrive -the poor service is a 'known fact'). The quality of the food (once it finally arrives at your table) nowadays ranges between average and below average. This is a huge shame given how wonderful the general pub atmosphere and amenities are, and how strongly the pub began when they reopened.”

Jenny, London (13 years 1 months 4 days ago)

“This place has totally lost it. I went with a group of friends and it was without a doubt the worst meal I have ever had. Out of the 8 people on our table 6 of us had to send our food back becasue if was completely inedible. The sausage and mash with onion gravy that we ordered, came as burnt sausages, with raw potatoe wedges (becasue they had run out of mash) and that was it. No onion gravey, no veg, no idea !! When we asked for gravy they brough a soup bowl of something that tasted like bisto. The chicken was like rubber, it just goes on a on. Used to be such a lovely pub but whoever is in charge now, they should be ashamed of themselves. ”

“Not sure when these other reviews have been written, but we found the Marlborogh to be a brilliant pub. Staff were friendly, service was fast and food was good value. The beer garden is just huge.”

Frodo, London (13 years 4 months 29 days ago)

“This used to be a great pub with fantastic food, massive garden and just a good place to hang out. I think there's been new management taken over in the past year or so and it's really gone downhill. The venue itself is still pretty good, but the staff are rude, food takes over an hour to come (and I've given them the benefit of the doubt and been back a few times now - always the same) and the atmosphere has just generally deteriorated. Me and my flatmates are now boycotting it cos the staff have been so rude. If you want to go to a pub in the immediate area try the Roebuck round the corner. If you want good food then go to the Lass O Richmond Hill at the top of Queens Road.”

Angela, London (14 years 15 days ago)

“This has been my local all my life; however, I recently took my young children in there in the early afternoon and received a 'less than satisfactory' welcome. Although they were being well-behaved, we were glowered at and muttered about by the staff until we felt compelled to leave. Also, the food is very expensive considering the quality.”

Rebecca, London (14 years 21 days ago)

“We had a terrible time there recently, it took them 2 and a half hours to bring our food and when it came some of it was cold in the middle and had to be sent back to the kitchen. The cream with our pudding was sour! When we complained they didn't even appologise and still charged us the full amount. Shame as I used to really like going there for food with friends.”

Mike, [ Unknown ] (14 years 3 months 21 days ago)

“It's not a bad place for a Sunday afternoon. But don't expect food to match the prices, nor a particularly great crowd any night of the week. One of those places that *should* be better - it looks the part, it's in a great, out of the way location - but somewhow just isn't.”
