Great food with a lovely atmosphere & friendly staff - highly recommend. I can't fault anything about the evening. One of our daughters is a vegetarian & for once she was even spoiled for choice. A good place for family dinning, business or a catch up with friends over a bottle of wine - will definitely return.

We Went to The Maquis for Father's Day . I booked this for my husband and children. Booking online was easy and chose this as food, service and ambience is always great. Been here quite a few times with different people during the day and the evening and I just like the quality of the food, the happy, attentive and friendly staff.

Lemon wedge with waitbait stale and hard I had to give my hubby mine out of my gin and tonic! Kids fish fingers 90% batter pathetic amount of fish inside!!! I wouldn't let my daughter eat it! My Cajun chicken salad came with nothing as described. Was meant to have roasted peppers on it?!?! Was horrible spikey lettuce leaves, tomato and cucumber that's it. Hardly eadable and left most. Hubby enojoyed his roast although portion small and he was hungry again within the hour! The one positive.....loved the decor! X

Food was excellent, venue very nice, spacious and well decorated. Staff were very friendly and mostly helpful. No children's menu available, though did offer smaller portions but for the same price as an adults meal!

Vibrant, traditional pub, full of character. Food range excellent, prices reasonable. Happy hour worth attending. The Marquis is only a 10 minute walk to DeMontfort Hall, so convenient for a pre-gig meal. Friendly staff. Recommended.

Sunday roast was rather disappointing. Overcooked yorkshire pudding and promised crackling when queried where it was we were told not available with that type of pork joint!

Awful service, very slow, bar service didn't look like they knew what they were doing. Seemed surprised when I said I'd booked a table. Food came out late and cold - nothing was done to remedy the situation despite 2 members of staff being aware of the cold food. Will not be returning!!!! Shame, as I perform nearby on a regular basis and will be telling all people I know not to go to the Marquis.

The food was good, especially the nut cutlet, when it arrived but the service was VERY slow. They were ages before they took our order.
