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. Married to that is a passion for inventiveness that sees the menu constantly changing. 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 and sharing plates plus some traditional pub classics - and the Sunday roasts are legendary. Their food reputation is matched by their service ��� always friendly and attentive without being intrusive. They have an extensive wine list and selection of local ales, and they can mix a mean cocktail too. Outside they boast what is arguably Bath���s finest pub garden; a walled courtyard space, it���s perfect for summertime lunching and drinking.

We booked at short notice to have Sunday lunch here and secured a table for 8pm. It was down to Trip advisor that we came to this pub for dinner, as it had great reviews. Service was great from walking in, immediately seated and drinks ordered. Menu was only small but enough choices and I wanted a Roast dinner so it was perfect. The Roast beef just melted in your mouth, and you had enough vegetables put out on the table also - cauliflower and leek cheese, and spring greens, carrots, roast potatoes. It was a lovely relaxing evening and we shall definitely return when we visit Bath again.

I visited the Marlborough Tavern for dinner last week. When I rang to make a reservation, (can get pretty busy) the lady was very polite and helpful in arranging me a table. I have eaten here on a number of occasions and I can honestly say that it is one of my favorite spots to eat in Bath. The menu is fantastic and the food is just exceptional. The food is of restaurant quality but without any pretentiousness. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff are very friendly and extremely professional. I highly recommend the 'Tav'!

This was the second time we have eaten here (first time was the best Sunday Roast I have had in Bath). Food was exceptional, served in a nice little garden tucked away next to Victoria Park. Great service, and a new favourite of ours.

Came here with family after not seeing them since Christmas, and had the perfect experience. The food was fantastic, the portions not too big, though the third course chocolate pudding defeated me. The service was relaxed, giving us time to catch up and not feel rushed. Great cocktails and selection of wines and beers. A fantastic evening, well worth the money spent. Can't wait to go again!
