* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

The “formal” riverside sibling to Marlow’s Villa d’Este continues to put in a “reliable” performance, with its “traditional” and not too ponced-up Italian cuisine (“including veal and liver and no pizza”), which is largely deemed “expensive but worth it”.

This “reliable” riverside sibling to Marlow’s Villa D’Este provides some “excellent Italian” cuisine, and even an old-school pudding trolley.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
