Local belief is that ‘Marney’s’ started it’s life as a hostelry in the mid 1700’s being a hunting lodge to nearby Hampton Court Palace. Whereas exact dates are not known it became a Public House in the mid 1800’s and was originally named The Alma Arms after the first battle in the Crimea War, which was so bravely fought by the Green Howards on 20 September 1854.
One hundred and forty years on saw the name change to acknowledge the Marney family who, for many years, lived and traded in a wood yard in what is now the garden and the top section of the Inn.
The adjacent pond also aptly took its names after this colourful family. Since November 1994 our philosophy has been to offer traditional hospitality in a traditional environment with total emphasis on quality of service, product and ambience.
Increasingly, Marneys has become a popular venue for private parties in all shapes and sizes with summer weddings, in marquees on the lawn and more. We do hope you will enjoy your refreshment break with us, be you ever so local or from further a field.
Thank you for patronage and welcome back.
