We visited this bar for a bite to eat in the evening. It had a lovely romantic atmosphere as we were seated in a booth and the food was genuinely lovely. I can really recommend trying the lamb pie and chocolate brownies for dessert!

Very disappointed by the quality of the food during my most recent visit to the Marble City Bar, I have visited this bar / restaurant numerous times in the past and was always happy with the quality of the food and the service however on this occasion the food in particular failed to impress. To be more specific I ordered the fish cake starter size which should really be renamed as the % fish content was very low almost non existent. The waiter never came back to our table to enquire how the meal was. When I was paying the bar man asked how the meal was and I responded that I have had better to which he had no answer.

The food here was brilliant, very good value and the tea room list is endless. We were impressed with the decor and location, the bar was busy but the staff were top notch. One of the best gastropubs I've ever been to, 10/10.

I ordered the portobello mushroom dish with bread crumbs and goat cheese. The topping was good but the mushrooms so tough I could not eat them. My baileys was brought in a dirty glass. A server never came to check how the meal was.There was golf on the tv with the volume up the same time as music playing which made it too loud at 4pm. Hate to complain based on previous reviews but restaurant obviously having a off day.
