“A Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

Very comfortable well appointed accommodation, good range of well maintained real ales, a great food menu with many locally sourced ingredients, best meal I've had this year, good sized car park, WiFi speed in pub good, staff friendly upbeat and professional (even at breakfast), the lawn of the beer garden/kids play area would put many a bowling green to shame. Sitting at the front of the pub there seems to be roads going in every direction yet there's very little traffic, quite magical . You're probably not going to get a mobile phone signal without a walk uphill but given the setting this is a positive, A gem.

Our third trip here was every bit as good as the other two. it is hard to praise this place too highly - the location is stunning, the rooms clean, tidy and well maintained, the food and drink excellent and the staff could not be more pleasant and accommodating. Try the short round trip walk from the pub, through Nettlecombe hamlet, up to Powerstock village (where, incidentally, there is another nice pub, the Three Horseshoes) and back to the Marquis. It shows off this beautiful, hidden little valley as its best.

A group of us stayed here while on a touring holiday of the south coast, what a great place! The staff were all very friendly. The rooms were well presented and extremely clean. The food was excellent and the beer was great.

Couldn't recommend more highly.

Our fourth visit to this fabulous traditional country pub hidden away on a quiet country lane. Friendly staff and atmosphere with superb food and beer. Rooms are very clean, comfortable with super beds and home made chocolates and cookies.The mini fridge for the milk at the top of the stairs such a good idea. The ideal getaway to unwind and recharge but it does become addictive as we have booked our fifth visit in January!

On the off chance on bank Holiday weekend we called in to see if there was any room at the inn and lucky for us there was. We stayed in room number 2 which was nice and clean, lovely decorated and had everything needed for a pleasant stay.we stayed 2 nights and had dinner both nights food was superb of a very high standard all served by a friendly waitress or the landlady who was lovely.

Breakfast was also good with a choice of cereal, fruit and a full English to follow.

Fantastic stay and would definitely recommend

Tucked away up some narrow country lanes we were amazed by the welcome and menu of the Marquis. This is certainly at the top end of pub food. 3 courses of fresh local food cooked to perfection and washed down with excellent local draft beer. Then, next morning, a full English breakfast fit for a king (or Marquis).

Arrived almost at the end of dinner service but the staff were very pleasant and accommodating. A surprisingly long and varied menu and not just the usual pub options. Delicious veggie tart and a yummy crumble for desert. Great little find.
