Came for my 50th birthday as a treat from my partner. Surprise champagne and signed book waiting on arrival in the Limousin Suite plus a gift from family in New York....the room was everything you could wish for. Dinner at 7:30 was simply superb. Appetiser of whitebait followed by starters of crispy pigs head and smoked haddock omlette got the... More

What can I say....amazing! More detailed review on the restaurant page but if anyone is considered booking for the Hand & Flowers my advice would be do it, it's phenomenal, you won't be disappointed! And if you're in the Limousin suite, don't forget it takes 20 minutes to fill the copper bath but its well worth the wait!

Is this a pub or a fine dining restaurant ??? The ambiance, service really didn't match the price tag. The food was pleasant but let down by over seasoning, greasy starter and vanilla creme brûlée with no hint of vanilla. There were long delays between courses - over 40 minutes wait for our main course without any acknowledgement from the... More

We visited the Hand and Flowers as a birthday treat for my husband. It was a fabulous meal and the staff couldn't have been nicer. You are given a complimentary whitebait and sourdough bread when you are seated. We both found the whitebait quite chewy, but still tucked in! My husband had the lovage soup to start with and said...

We had a meal here for my husband birthday in august. I booked it about 8 months in advance and it was well worth the wait! We had a fairly late booking (9.15) so it gave us a bit time to have a look round lovely Marlow before getting ready for dinner. On arrival we were taken straight through to... More

As a pub landlord in Henley myself I felt compelled to write this. It was our first year anniversary and the staff we met on popping by for a drink managed to fit us in today (Saturday lunch). It was not disappointing and I disagree virtually wholehearted with the previous review. Food stunning, service impeccable. Loved the reserved seating in... More

Have tried this restaurant twice now both times very disappointed. Cramped seating, too dark I needed to use the torch on my phone to read the menu! , food good but service appalling. I left feeling 'had' no idea how they got 1 Michelin let alone 2!

We had a family lunch here yesterday to celebrate my wife's birthday. Couple of subtle birthday touches from the super friendly and helpful staff included a birthday card and a happy birthday message written in chocolate on her desert plate. Food is exceptional we shared two starters between 4; the artichoke and the deep fried pigs head both excellent and... More

This trip was an early birthday present for my partner... remember to book further in advance! The bar area upon entering was very nice and were made to feel valued from that point. Had the opportunity to relax with a drink before being taken through to the table. Once at the table the setting was very nice and relaxing. The... More
