We are extremely privileged to be home to a whole host of award winning eateries in Buckinghamshire and the Chilterns. From fine dining restaurants to unique stylish pubs, there is a place for everyone, every occasion and every taste bud.
The Royal Oak
The Royal Oak, set on the outskirts of Marlow, is a real comforting traditional country pub. But don't let the comfortable setting fool you, this pub serves anything but 'pub grub.' The Royal Oak is known for its sublime award-winning food, using local seasonal produce from the surrounding areas to create high quality, beautifully presented dishes. Enjoy a glass of wine from the neighbouring vineyard in Marlow, Harrow & Hope or dive into delicious ice cream made using cream from Lacey's Family Farm in Lane End. Currently Tourism South East’s ‘Tourism Pub of the Year 2017-18’ and recently they were awarded with 'Buckinghamshire Dining Pub of the Year 2019' from The Good Pub Guide!
The Hand and Flowers
Tom Kerridge has not one but three restaurants in Marlow, The Hand and Flowers being the most well-known. It is the only pub in the UK which has two Michelin stars. Tom Kerridge’s award winning pub serves delicious food in a genuine and friendly environment making you feel right at home. Many of the dishes use products from local suppliers to create simple foods where the ingredients speak (or taste) for themselves.
The Fat Duck
Enjoy an exciting unique food adventure at Heston Blumenthal’s award winning ‘The Fat Duck.’ This restaurant isn’t just famous for its 3 Michelin stars but also for the intriguing experimental dishes and ingredients that are used. Rather than just a sit down meal, this is an experience to tantalize all your senses. Heston Blumenthal creates a personalised trip which is based on your own childhood memories, bringing nostalgia and emotion to your meal. A fine dining experience which is completly unforgettable.
The Mash Inn
The Mash Inn, located in the hamlet of Bennet End near Radnage, Buckinghamshire, is both a restaurant and hotel. Food is cooked in their open kitchen over a bespoke wood-fired grill creating an interactive dining experience. The menu is ever changing to echo the seasons and the ingredients are available in their kitchen garden. The chefs create food that looks like pieces of art, uniquely detailed and full of colour.
In the quaint village on the hill, The Pointer in Brill is a fabulous place to venture for posh pub grub. The Pointer uses their own seasonal produce to create unique dishes that reflect each month. You are also able to visit their butchers and farm shop which is located just next door to take home fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, charcuterie and bread. If you are wanting to extend your 'Pointer' experience, you can stay in one of the rooms just across the road. Brill and its surrounding area is full of fabulous walks and things to see. Impressively, last year they were voted as Michelin Pub of the Year, plus, The Times' Hotel of the Year!
