French Restaurants in Marlow
1. The Vanilla Pod French restaurant in Marlow 31 West St - SL7
“You are always well looked after” at Michael Macdonald’s “tiny” venture – a timbered room in a house once owned by TS Eliot. Many who report on it are regulars: “best value in town…”; “not one but several excellent meals last year…”; “sublime consistent food without a doubt, as I have been about thirty times – just perfect with fish and the only place in the world I eat pudding!”
2. Hand & Flowers French restaurant in Marlow West Street - SL7
“Tom Kerridge’s (wonderful) versions of pub grub” mean there are still many reporters who “can’t wait to go back” to his immensely popular and consequently “overcrowded” Thames-valley gastropub, which owes its mighty reputation to Michelin’s award of a rare two stars, back in 2012. It was a questionable decision from the start, but could be glossed over at the time by the Hand & Flowers’ undeniably crowd-pleasing performance. However, ratings here have been in decline for years now, and it’s reaching a point where this down-to-earth hostelry is starting to seem “seriously overhyped”. It doesn’t help that TV Tom’s opened The Coach “literally down the road” which is “more fun” and has better scoff. And with this celebrity chef’s multiple other openings in London and Manchester, “Is TK just too stretched to keep control?”. (There’s also the question of when Michelin will finally stop slumbering and take away one or both stars here).
