Superb pasta and a flight of 4 white wines to share.
Superb waitress with good conversation

The mrs and I went for a walk around Martinborough square. Most places were closed and we gave the Martinborough Hotel a punt.

We were initially sat beside the bar (which actually meant a tiny table under the bar), and were told that there were no other tables available. When we asked about the specials we were told that they were only for the back bar, not a la carte dining.

We said thank you to the staff in the restaurant, picked up our stuff and headed back through to the bar, where we were served by the very friendly and awesome Sian. She was incredibly welcoming, and worked very hard to make sure we were well looked after.

The mrs and I both had a meal from the bar menu, and a couple of drinks, and were blown away by Sian’s attentiveness. We would have left her a big tip if we weren’t such tight-wads.

Would recommend to everyone. Make sure you skip the restaurant and just get the fish and chips from the back bar.

Ate here for both nights of our trip. Staff were amazingly friendly! Food was lovely and the cocktail I had superb (rosebud, FYI). Was literally stuffed after three courses the first night, and the second night with just mains and puddings was still enough to leave us satisfied. Thank you for two wonderful evenings!

Went to the Martinborough Hotel for a meal over Labour Weekend. Very busy but the kitchen coped well with our meals only taking ten minutes if that. Good service, great wine list, average menu. Friendly atmosphere with both inside and outside tables.

As visitors to the area this was recommended by a Greytown shopkeeper. Food was good and we could see the Chefs at work which is always a bonus. No public holiday surcharge either!
