The food was amazing, we had the roast dinners & ordered a mini roast for my daughter which was huge! I rung ahead in the morning to ask about allergies for my son & they were extremely accommodating & made sure he could have something from the kids menu, plus ice cream! Always a worry when eating out with allergies but the chef was great. So big thank you! Highly recommended.

We had a fantastic meal. The food was excellent and good value. Staff were all friendly and welcoming. It was busy but they were always on hand to speak to. Service was great and food arrived promptly. We felt relaxed and unhurried. The pub itself is quite dark in areas and maybe needs a little lift but the sun was out and there was a cheerful atmosphere. Bar area and bathrooms were pristine. With the good food we had a lovely time. Would highly recommend and definitely would return.

We have visited quite a few times and I have ranked your Sunday Roasts the best in the area… Essex/Suffolk. My only criticism of a Sunday’s lunch (Beef x 2) was that it wasn’t very hot when served and unfortunately the potatoes and parsnips wasn’t crispy and up to your usual standard. However, the beef and vegetables were cooked to perfection. Thank you

Not our first visit. This is a regular place for meal whether celebration, mixing with friends or a cosy meal for two. Comfortable and warm setting, staff always happy, helpful and attentive. Always something you want on the menu made from fresh and local ingredients. Still no starters at the moment but we just get a mix of side dishes if we want. The main meal is always plentiful so you don't really need a starter at the Marlborough!
