Expert review of The Marquess Tavern
My family’s had a few birthday parties at this terrific spot. At front it looks pretty much like any good local boozer, but at the rear is a bright sky-lit dining room proudly serving a British seasonal menu.
Come in a group and you can order traditional roast of 35-day aged beef fore-rib for the table – a blackboard lists the sizes of joints available and as each is ordered it is crossed off the list; staff will advise on appropriate quantities. Otherwise, the à la carte menu will have options like rib-eye steak, lamb loin or rack, and (in season) roast partridge. The beer list is sensational – one of us will usually have a bottle of Grozet, a gooseberry and wheat ale from Scotland.
Weekends see whole families coming for the roasts, which makes things lively (and booking essential). Although, the room retains some Georgian features it is rather Spartan – not ideal for romance.
Chummy and bright.
An upmarket residential area.
Expect to pay around £85 for a two-course meal for two with drinks and service.
