Not exactly a newcomer, but relocated from London Road in October 2019 to bigger premises at The Crown.

Australian Dan Bond’s unpretentious restaurant, which gained an outdoor marquee in covid times, is a real local hit; “you know everyone will like the food, you know it will be fair value” and “you know they’ll work their socks off to give you a good time”….“plus, Dan’s just a good bloke”, so “how could it not be everyone’s favourite?” Top Tip – “their occasional wine dinners are great fun too”.

“Going from strength to strength” – Australian Dan Bond runs this “delightful” restaurant, which serves an “interesting and excellently prepared” menu. “The entire staff work hard to give customers a great experience and this is one of those thoroughly well-run spots where the whole is more than the sum of the parts!”

“Probably the best food in Marlborough” – this local favourite is not exactly a newcomer, but relocated from London Road in October 2019 to bigger premises at The Crown. There’s “a choice of small dishes or full meals” and “very friendly service with Dan himself playing ‘Le Patron’”. “We had a memorable meal featuring in turn: carpaccio of beef with Parmesan ice cream, taleggio, roast quail, paella (superb match with an unexpected heavyweight Bertrand rosé), lamb moussaka and lemon polenta cake. Superb!”.

"Dan's has a good reputation locally but the food is very overrated. Good menu but the food not terribly special. Service friendly and ambiance good."
