Salmon and chips very nice and plenty of free top ups of coffee as much as you wanted very good service wish we had somewhere like this where we live. Be a nice place to sit outside in summer lovely scenery and a nice castle to look round

Hi there! Thank you so much for taking the time to give us your lovely feedback! Our specialty Fish and Chips is amazing huh?

We bought a couple of packets of salmon to have for dinner last week on the way to the Belfast ferry. My goodness it was tasty. When we returned, we spent almost £100 on salmon (and black pudding - that is damn good too) to bring back to Somerset. Simply the nicest salmon I've ever tasted.

Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. Marrbury Smoked Salmon is indeed unique - and we reckon, if blindfolded, if one has already tasted it - they would instantly know it was Marrbury - Vincent takes huge pride in his work - and rather like a masterchef at work - no one is ever involved in the smoking process...

We tried the smoked salmon, duck, brie n chicken salads all of which were very fresh really well presented with very tasty dressings. The chowder was very filling and also showcased their products favorably. We purchased some to take with us.

This was our second visit whilst viewing houses in the area. Our first visit was for coffee, a scrummy brownie and a lot of smoked produce purchased for later consumption. Our second visit was for lunch. Wifey had the chowder and I had the battered smoked sausages. Oh man! Both meals were very good and sitting in the garden overlooking... More

Wish we lived nearer. Stopped for coffee but ended having lunch. Chowder was very tasty and I had homemade burger one of the best I've had. The lemon and white chocolate cheesecake was to die for. The staff were friendly especially Marta. Can't wait to go back Easter weekend.

Thank you so much for your comments :) Chowder - The question always is each year - when do I swap it for the summer specials huh? It is a dish we prepare for winter - but - I keep it on the menu if it is still a bit chily outside. Nothing nicer after a forest or beach walk... More

Stopped off for lunch today my friend and I were visiting a friend who lives in Newton Stewart. The hot smoked salmon baguette was lovely my toasted sandwich was OK but my friend who was gluten free was disappointed with her smoked cheese and onion marmalade panini. To be fair to the management they were apologetic and ensured that she... More

Hi There! Thank you for your valued feedback. Have to say our General Manager was sorely disappointed that despite the fact she very kindly waived the charge for your friend’s meal – you still felt bound to award us a poorly rated three star review. During the meal (total bill for three lunches with flowing refills of tea and coffee... More

We regularly (as regularly as we can, driving over an hour to get there) visit the wonderful Marrbury, as they simply, have the best smoked fish in the world. We always have their 'special fish and chips' (made with a chunk of hot smoked salmon) and usually end up buying more (there's lots of scrummy smoked foods; trout, mussels and... More
