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
Superb food Superb service Relaxed and happy atmosphere
Lovely service and a great table, great drinks too however sadly we had to send back our roasts as the beef was freezing cold and couldn’t even get our knife through it. I would normally never complain but for the price you are paying I would expect a lot better than freezing cold fatty beef.
Food was great and service was excellent!
The food was awesome. Absolutely delicious - without exception. I don't know what you did with the rhubarb dessert but it was diabolically good, I've been dreaming about it ever since! Great service and a lovely place to visit. Can't wait until my next one!
I hate to be negative but we were slightly disappointed with the Sunday lunch. It just felt to be lacking some deeper flavours. The portion sizes were very small and the plates even tinier, which is a shame as the ingredients are not expensive. We were also charged £5 for some roast potatoes which most places would do as standard on a Sunday. The quality of the ingredients was very good however and love the decor. Friendly service.
One of my favourite gastro pubs. Food is always excellent!
very impressed with the food, and loved the bar downstairs as well!
As always, very good.
Every bite was delicious. Wine selection could be spruced up.
Pretty much perfect - only thing is all the hard services make it pretty bad sound wise - felt sorrry for other diners as we were pretty loud
Had to send back as COD was uncooked. The portions are very stingy.
Consistently great food. The Canadian woman behind their is a hoot and the French guy with the glasses (Martin?) is a superb host. We'll be back again soon...
Food is incredible and all reasonably priced. Unfortunately the wine was a little topish- £47 a bottle of rioja that costs £12 in shops.
Whilst our meal started in a bad way, my celiac Mother being served breadcrumbs despite double checking the meal was gluten free, the response by the staff was immense and the mouthwatering food was reward enough and the faith fully restored with the manager insisting on comping my Mums entire dinnner. Classy classy reaction to an unfortunate mistake!
2nd visit. We were met by a very stressed waitress agitated at my request for a nice seat. Some of the food was nice (the vegetarian starter) main vegetarian was very bland. Ordered dessert and only 1 came. Apparently waitress didn't hear me order mine which came 10 minutes later. It was nice though. Bought some bread to take home which is delicious.
AMAZING food, interesting combinations + great, friendly service
Have tried the set menu twice and am planning another visit. Also want to go to experience the standard a la carte menu. The value for the quality of food you get is amazing, and I can't wait to visit again. Also really enjoy the filter coffee offered, although always need extra milk.
I booked the private room. It was amazing and we had such a good day!
Amazing food, the care and innovation is quite something for a pub. However on our fourth visit on a Sunday night the service was poor, it started off well but then we had to continually ask for things, chase down staff etc. culminating in us sat with dessert menus for some 20 minutes, went to the bar as we gave up trying to flag down staff, and were informed that we couldn’t have pudding as the kitchen had since closed! Luckily that was a misunderstanding and we got our delicious desserts. I would recommend The Marksman but maybe try sitting upstairs as the service up there is in a different league.
Andy has delivered amazing service and the food quality was Outstanding. Will definetly come back.
Excellent food and service. Perfect family evening. No-where better
We had a lovely evening. Interesting and delicious food....definitely will return
Our food was incredible, but I was disappointed to be seated upstairs in the restaurant and not the pub, which is what I would've preferred for our casual Sunday midday meal. I asked to change upon arriving, but was told I'd have to be finished in an hour—and didn't want to be rushed—especially considering the price. I'm not sure how or why my reservation, which had been made weeks prior, was for the upstairs room, but perhaps there should be some sort of note alerting diners about the difference and to encourage specifying their preference when reserving.
I was expecting the food and service to be a lot better as the Marksman had been recommended to me by friends. Service - the first waiter who served us our starters, just dropped them off the table and didn’t confirm what the dishes were. This was because he didn’t actually know the dishes he was bringing out. He actually bought our starters to the table next to us and when they were like we didn’t order this, he realised it was ours and when one of the guys asked him what the dish was, he just said oh, it’s not for you. Mains were good apart from I found the string was still wrapped around my piece of veal. Again, when we finished the mains and had our plates taken away, we weren’t asked how it was as I wanted to mention about the string as I was not impressed this had been missed by the kitchen. The outstanding dish of the night was the fried potatoes. They were excellent! I would go back just for them alone. The level of service and knowledge of the waiters needs to be improved.
