The whole experience felt very special. The staff manage to be attentive and friendly without making you feel uncomfortable. The food was outstanding but surprisingly I thought my dessert was third in my order of preference. It is expensive but would willingly pay the same to go again. We were very lucky too because we actually saw Tom filming

Been looking forward to this for a while. Very disappointed - the food was ok (no better) and the general service poor. Completely baffled as to how the place is held in such high esteem. And Tom was not in!

Booked into the Limousin Suite on this occasion which was situated in a building just next door to the Hand & Flowers as opposed to our previous stay in the Orin Suite which is situated in a house on the high street in Marlow. Our room was absolutely beautiful, made us smile as soon as we walked through the door....

What a delight! Had been looking forward to eating here for months and was very pleased it lived up to expectations. The alcohol on offer was excellent, rather expensive but you pay for the name don't you. They had some lovely 'cannot buy this anywhere else' touches which made it feel really special. The service was brilliant, our waiter couldn't...

We celebrated a family birthday with an evening meal , bed and breakfast in the Roxburgh and Braeburn rooms in the Apple house and a late lunch the following day. Our welcome upon arrival was warm and so reassuring (after the less than professional service from the reservations team who gave cause for concern). Our rooms were available promptly at...

Our son chose the restaurant lunch as a gift for my husband's birthday, based on recommendations by friends. It was a cold day and the restaurant has a lovely warm atmosphere. It is informal but has an air of being quite special. The food was fabulous, perfectly cooked and served. Drinks were wonderful too. If there is an advice to...

The room was beautiful with great attention to detail, there were homemade cakes and biscuits and and fresh coffee facilities. Only sorry we couldn't check in earlier. The food was excellent, the lamb and pork were cooked to perfection. The staff were lovely and attentive, I can't wait to go again.

Exceptional food especially the desert which is probably the best I have ever had! fantastic service in beautiful surroundings. I particularly enjoyed the handmade marshmallows we had with our coffee. They melted in the mouth and were delicious. We had an amazing time. Can't wait to visit again

A fantastic birthday meal. Been waiting a while to get here. The food was amazing and choice of drinks, cocktails, mocktails were just as dazzling. It is pricey but once you have been you'll know why. Hope to go again sometime soon.
