The Hand & Flowers

126 West Street, MARLOW, SL7 2BP

In 2005 chef Tom Kerridge and his sculptor wife Beth turned their simple concept into reality: to create in this 18th-century pub the sort of place where they would like to eat. My, how well it has worked as Tom's TV stardom, four AA Rosettes and chock-a-block reservations diary testify. Housing all the desired historic features - flagstone floors, old timbers and log fires - the bar offers the unusual opportunity to drink a pint of Roasted Nuts (actually a real ale from Marlow's Rebellion brewery). Sourcing some ingredients from his own allotment, Tom's menus combine modern British and rustic French cooking, such as the potato risotto with baked potato stock, Pied de Mouton and fresh chestnut starter. Mouth-wateringly descriptive mains include Scottish halibut with Portobello mushroom purée, crispy beef suet and sesame-braised parsnip; and tenderloin of Wiltshire pork with pickled mustard leaf, malt-glazed cheek, garlic sausage and potato dauphine. Booking to eat here is essential and must be arranged months in advance.
