Trying to get a reservation was a nightmare, I tried to book on line about 20 times without success as the system kept crashing, rang only to be held in a long queue, eventually emailed got an immediate response and was able to make a booking approximately three months in advance for lunch. Arrived to find car park full for...

We visited the Hand and flowers pub and restaurant for a family birthday lunch. It was booked nine months in advance and the day before we asked if an extra child could come too which was no problem. The car park is small and not easy to manoeuvre. We were warmly greeted by young and attentive waiters, coats were taken...

I love Tom Kerridge as a fellow Gloucester boy. Wanted to go here for ages. My wife booked it a year ago. It was just simply amazing, brilliant food, lovely wine and great drink. Superb service and just an all round fantastic experience. I had the gala pie and the pork and the chocolate and ale cake. It was all...

Great atmosphere, excellent service, didn't feel rushed, quick drink refills ;-) and most importantly seriously good grub! Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here and look forward to our next visit! If you have trouble parking there is a car park just down the street that is only a very short walk away and reasonably priced.

A Christmas gift of vouchers to the 'pub' in Marlow, where my brother in law used to drink with his pals, was a lovely surprise three years ago. Numerous attempts to make a booking finally came to fruition. Emails went to and fro - warning about the £75 a head cancellation fee if we didn't turn up or give a...

We have dined here on many an occasion and the food & service has been second to none. On those occasions, we booked a year in advance and whilst the booking system was awful, it did at least work although slow & painful. The booking system was recently changed to allow bookings only 3 months in advance. I've just spent...

Want good atmosphere? This place does not disappoint. Want good service? A lovely staff and lots of them. Most of all you want good food ? Go no further, this is seriously good pub grub and I don't mean that in any derogatory way. High quality ingredients, innovative cooking and wonderful flavours, and big portions , you will be very...

The restaurant itself, was cosy and welcoming. There was a variety of clientel, couples, families and buisinessmen. I had made a point to mention it was our anniversary...

Had to book well in advance and you can see why! My first experience of a 2 Michelin star establishment. Perfect setting with a non pretentious ambience. Set menu was to die for and amazing value. Next time someone else will be driving so I can work my way through the eclectic gin collection. Thanks for a quality afternoon, I'll...
