Featured Marlborough Restaurants
1. The Harrow at Little Bedwyn British, Modern restaurant in Marlborough Little Bedwyn - SN8
Sue and Roger Jones deliver amazing food at their famous converted inn, set in the middle of nowhere, and Rogers creative pairings with the wine make for simply marvellous meals (his cellar is famously well-stocked). Perhaps, though, where it really has the edge is the pure enthusiasm of its staff: instead of feeling like an elitist gourmet restaurant, it feels like you are chatting with friends over an outstanding meal.
2. Rick Stein Fish & seafood restaurant in Marlborough Lloran House, 42a High Street - SN8
Set over two floors in an old building with some cosy nooks and crannies, this new opening from the Stein Empire is a great addition to the area, which lacked a destination restaurant. But while it succeeds as a high end bistro with unfussy, well-cooked food and good-humoured service, numerous reports suggest that for a top name the quality is somewhat mixed (good but not extraordinary) and that it has some way to go to be a match for the Sandbanks restaurant.
3. PizzaExpress Pizza restaurant in Marlborough 37 High St - SN8
For the first 20 years of this guide, this famous pizza chain with its surprisingly distinctive branches was with tedious regularity the surveys most mentioned group: constantly re-inventing itself to remain everyones favourite standby, especially with kids in tow. Competition is sharper nowadays however, and since its ownership changed a couple of years ago (to Hony Capital) ratings and the volume of feedback have slipped well below their historical average. Yes, it is still much-mentioned, and still as reliable as ever to armies of loyal supporters, but harsher critics are stunned by the complacency and staleness of the brand: even the ubiquitous, good value voucher deals are starting to lose their shine.
