About The Marksman Public House
The Marksman is a public house and dining room in the east end of London. Located on the corner of Horatio Street and Hackney Road, it's less than a ten minute walk from Hoxton station or a short bus or cab ride from Shoreditch, Old Street and Liverpool Street stations.
Serving the best of local beers, ales, lagers and ciders bottled and on draught alongside a selection of fine wines and spirits and with a bar menu and an exceptional restaurant offering seven days a week, The Marksman is both a great place to drink and a great place to eat
Love It. Great service
Although it is a nice quiet room above the busy pub, the enjoyment of the food wasn’t there. Indeed, the starter of my partner came 5min later than mine, therefore leaving my plate to be cold by the time hers arrived. The main were waiting on the side while we finished our starters. Thus, leaving the sauce of both plates to be lukewarm. We understand the tight turnaround but this shouldn’t impact on the quality of the food/service. I’d really like to try it again, hoping that next time I will have warm dishes as the staff was nice and discreet and the food tasty.
Family lunch on Sunday, loved every bit of it. Very welcoming service, great food prepared in a very modern spirit (fresh, local, quality ingredients, minimize waste, creative cooking). Good food, good vibes, good fun, we'll be back.
Food was good, but they had no time for us, took forever to get the waitress to come around, then again forever to come check us for drinks, and same thing for dessert and bill. maybe they need more staff?
We visited Marksman while visiting London to celebrate my birthday. We had a jam packed schedule, but wanted to make sure we tried this place! When we arrived we told the wait staff that we were on a time limit and they were very receptive. They made sure we were able to leave on time to make our next event. Everything about this place is very cool and well worth a visit!
Too expensive and too pretentious. 29£ for two courses (1 starter+1 main) excluded drinks is expensive for a sunday roast. Also the portion are too small. We've booked at 12:45pm and the food arrived at 14:15. I don't recommend!
The food was not particularly delicious and was expensive for what you get.
Great food and attention to detail, service was attentive and helpful.
Amazing food, fantastic relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely be back
The staff went above and beyond to make dinner fantastic for me and my family, and the food was delicious. Everyone had a great time. I will definitely be coming back
Whilst I have been to the marksman many times at lunch and have enjoyed myself very much, this time I was very disappointed with the dinner. Whilst I generally disagree with people when they say the food is too expensive here, Im afraid that this time I could see exactly where they're coming from. Whilst I usually dont mind the higher prices because the quality and portions make up for it, the pumpkin tart that I had as a main dish for 17 pounds was extortionate. It was a good tart, but it was nothing extraordinary and even the portions for the starters were bigger than the small piece of pumpkin with goats curd that I received. I would not pay more than 7 pounds for that. Furthermore, to have a wine-list that starts at 36 pounds a bottle is ridiculous and significantly more than what I consider to be affordable. Whilst I recognize and appreciate that you pride yourselves on quality, please do not continue down this path of unaffordable luxury just for the sake of it. There are so many 20 - 25 pound wines that are fantastic and would compliment your dishes brilliantly. I'm sure that I will be returning to eat again, but this last experience has unfortunately tainted what was an otherwise great image in my mind.
Brilliant meal, excellent service, very hip spot. Worth it.
Great evening, tasty food and friendly service!
We had a great time. The food was top notch and we enjoyed the beers.
Food was delicious but the meat was cold. Service very slow
Food and atmosphere brilliant! The service was a little slow and did forget minor things like mustard and a coffee but very friendly and accommodating staff. So wasn’t a concern in the slightest. Would definitely recommend and definitely go back again
Great Sunday roast!!
Best of both worlds: fine dining standard in a cosy pub setting.
Fantastic evening, delightful service and the food was incredible. That honey tart 🤤
Unfortunately the quality of the food was not to the standard we’ve had previously, we took two friends with us who were looking forward to their lunch, the starter was very tasty, but unfortunately the Beef was extremely tough one of my friends couldn’t even cut her piece of meat let alone eat it, when you are charging £29- for two courses the food should be good quality & definitely editable, although we raised this with the waitress we were presented with a full bill, only when I stated that we should have a partial reduction did she go speak to the manager. Very disappointed and due to this unlikely to return!
The gravy was very thin and the Yorkshire puddings are like aunt Bessie’s
Great food, wish it came with more choice of vegetables. Service was a mixture of attentive and inattentive. Cutlery not replaced between courses, water not refilled, deserts forgotten about. Had to be reminded about wine list. Sunday night, but really there should be no excuse. Music in pub was a bit intense for late night Sunday. We asked to turn it down a bit but not really enough to make a difference. Should you have to shout at each other on a Sunday night dinner? I’d return...it’s likely the Sunday night staff were just being lazy.
Despite reading some great reviews of the Marksman, unfortunately our experience was unsatisfactory. We went for Sunday lunch and had the three course menu for £33. The table came away feeling unsatisfied due to the really small portion sizes. Flavours were okay but the table next to us left their beef untouched due to how tough it was. Service was good although we only found out after the meal that they had a special main course which wasn't offered to us. Overall an underwhelming experience unfortunately.
Great food and service. Highly recommend the buns as a starter before the 2/3 courses.
