The food was truly excellent. A favourite was definitely the cornish mussels. Staff was friendly. Will definitely come back again!

Unfortunately a lot went wrong with our service, we waited a tremendously long time to get our first drink order in, followed by incorrect drinks arriving when they finally came, to someone at our table getting her main with our starters. It felt like the evening was against us that night! The staff stayed friendly through out the mess and the food was still good. But should really improve the service.

It would be nice if the reservation system could specify whether dining room space is available or whether the reservation is for the bar area.

Faultless food, though quite pricey for what it is and the portion size. Good cocktail and wine, service was very good aside from the long wait for bill payment. Atmosphere was great in the restaurant, warm and homely feeling with a chic twist on a cold grey Saturday afternoon. Would return.

First time at The Marksman. The atmosphere was great and the food was fantastic. Should also mention the service which was top notch. We took our small dog which was a big plus. Will definitely be visiting The Marksman again, such a great night.

The food was very good but quite expensive. The pudding, a burnt butter tart was sublime.

Staff were friendly but slow when coming to the table & side dishes came 10 minutes after the mains. Food so so, small portions for the price. Great drinks!

Such a let down! Had great expectations about this gastropub. We started having a few doubts when the glassware was dirty and service slow but friendly. As a starter we all picked a nice pumpkin soup. The worst came when 3 of us ordered the same house beef roast and we couldn't cut the meat (and it wasn't the knife!). We thought about it for a couple of minutes and we decided to send it back. They offered to cook the meat again (Ew!) but we said no. 2 of us ordered a pie which wasn't oven hot but quite nice. 1 of us decided to give it another go following the advice to wait for some more meat but it arrived cold and sent back again. Third time around it was tender and well cooked, not great but edible. After all this, we got drinks and dessert discounted from the bill. No manager cared enough to come to the table, ask for more detail and/or apologise for the bad quality meat. Weird behaviour.

Tops marks with my only comment being that we were reminded at least six occasions of our time allocation. This was done very politely though so no real issue.

* poor service: no eye contact, was told to reserve online [despite being inside the pub speaking to the head waiter], minimal attendance whilst sat down, and the server didn't know what dishes he was serving. £35 for a Sunday Roast, with an additional +£30 for Wing Rib (and no it wasn't Dodo or Unicorn) whilst the actual food was tasty, the portions were small, with especially minuscule sides. Unfortunately, the overriding memory was the sour taste from the awful service and value.

Little disappointed. The food was good, however it was overpriced for what it was. The service was great, however the food felt a little rushed and there wasnt the sense of us eating out as an experience as opposed to being at lunch. A lovely meal but feels a little over priced. The table undergound/by the kitchen wasnt what we were expecting. Not terrible, but not what you want when come to an "old boozer".

Great Sunday roast, although the second slice of beef had quite a bit of sinew running through so it was very chewy. Apart from that everything else was delicious and can't wait to go back!

Very expensive for what it was, incorrect bill and they'd only given us an hour and 3/4 on the table which we were then asked to hurry and finish even though we were waiting so long for food. Sides on roast were in addition to cost of roast. You couldn't eat that on it's own, it had to be part of a 2/3 course menu. Food very nice but not worth the price.

Overpriced, tiny portions, got overcharged. Staff are nice, it's not their fault, but it needs to be better at these prices

The food was disappointing for the price. People who got the beef were happy, but the roast is nothing special if you consider it cost almost twice as much as most pubs. I got the partridge and it was not good at all - hard to eat, tough and tasteless. All sides were not impressive at all.

Great food. Appalling service. Not unfriendly but fairly cluless. Waited over an hour for starters to be served as an example and had to constantly remind theM about main course
