Tom Kerridge’s career speaks not just of a commitment to culinary excellence, though there is that too of course, but of thinking about cooking in ways that are neither excessively precious nor alienating in their technicality. What Kerridge is about, above all, is food that people want to eat, rather than baffling peculiarities they feel they ought to try. The nerve-centre remains the whitewashed country pub with its hanging baskets (plus its private dining space, The Shed, just up the road), where an atmosphere of endearing bonhomie prevails amid the bare tables and half-boarded walls. Marlow regulars doubtless appreciate the fact that the kitchen prides itself as much on producing a matchless roast beef and Yorkshire pudding for Sundays, as it does on working creative transformations on familiar ingredients. Beef toast and dripping comes with mustard butter, English asparagus and salad cream, while at main it's undoubtedly with pedigree meats that the principal emphasis rests. West End Farm pork belly with smoked cheek beignet, black pudding and gherkin ketchup vies for attention with Essex lamb ‘bun’ with sweetbreads and salsa verde. It's all pretty substantial, but don't even think of resisting the signature chocolate and ale cake with salt caramel muscovado ice cream.
