In the heart of Marlow, a stone’s throw from his award-winning flagship business, The Hand & Flowers, TV chef Tom Kerridge has also created something quite special at The Coach. With its glazed wall tiles, soft leather furnishings and open kitchen, the look is timeless yet contemporary, as is head chef Nick Beardshaw’s modern British cooking. So sit yourself down on a bar stool or at a table and decide from the concise menu with headings of ‘Meat, No meat and Sweet’. From ‘Meat’ perhaps choose whole stuffed rotisserie quail, or venison chilli with red wine, chocolate and toasted rice cream. From ‘No Meat’ be tempted by sea bream fillet with Puy lentils and trompettes; or mushroom ‘risotto’ Claude Bosi. And then, you must leave room for a ‘Sweet’ – whisky and rye pudding; or lemon tart and raspberry sorbet are just two options. You can’t pre-book to eat here – it’s first-come-first-served – so it’s all fingers crossed you’ll time your visit just right.
