Very busy for a Wednesday evening. Very salubrious surroundings with welcoming and friendly staff. Both hot drinks were delicious and served piping hot. Definitely enjoyed our visit.

My boyfriend booked the marchmont arms for our anniversary/valentines meal and I could hardly fault anything! The food was sooooo yummy. My steak was cooked to perfection and it is a lovely romantic setting.. Only one thing that disappointed.. the pornstar martini wasn't very good and very expensive too! Apart from that I would highly recommend for any special occasion... More

This was a family lunch with baby during a Monday. Marchmont Arms can accommodate babies and their prams. Disabled toilets are available but it's unclear how to get there as there are steps into the building. No ramps seen. The baby changing facilities: always take your own changing mat. I recommend one brings a few sacrificial incontinence sheets if you're... More

The outside of the building is stunning. Has a real wow factor when you arrive. The interior is lovely but has a slightly more dated feel in some if the rooms . Still very beautiful with large windows and fireplaces through out. Our waitress Kerry was lovely. Very polite and friendly. The food was gorgeous! Scalops cooked to perfection and... More

This is seemingly a lovely pub... nice decor and warm ambience. Not overly busy for a Sunday afternoon at lunch... good menu and lots to choose from. After waiting ages for anyone to take out order, I ordered the deep fried Brie which I've had at the sister pubs - fishery and rose and crown and it was delicious- unfortunately... More

Having driven past the Marchmont Arms on a number of occasions, myself and my partner decided to finally visit for lunch. We were welcomed by friendly staff and shown to our table promptly. The venue itself is very nice, light, airy and nice and warm. The menu had a wide selection on offer. However once we'd chosen our meals, the... More

Terrible food, duck wings tasteless and over cooked, main was way overpriced for a tiny wagu burger (£18.50) Its a really really tiny piece of meat that was also over cooked, followed by undercooked lemon tart -so undercooked the pastry base was still powder/flour. We returned all 4 thinking the waitress would notice and ask if everything was ok... but... More

Visited a Wednesday evening with a group of colleagues. Had delicious barbecue duck wings for starters and a fair waguye burger as main course. Beef was delicious as was the fries but the bread was not particularly tasty and the salad inside was limited. Serving was slow. Waited for long time on drinks and food. Room for improvement on that
