We booked for lunch to entertain a family member from Australia and my mother in law, who at 87 is a very discerning restaurant critic. She lived in Southern France for years, and knows about great food. Sanctum did not disappoint, although a little tricky to find from the Marlow direction. Once there, we were most impressed by the situation, décor and facilities. A Tuesday lunchtime is not going to be very busy anywhere, so we received excellent service from the single waitress, who seemed to do the bar and everything else. A choice of Bar Menu or A La Carte Menu gave plenty to consider, and we could mix and match at reasonable prices. Portions resembled Nouvelle Cuisine and were delicately served. We all had different dishes for starters and main course, and all were delicious. Deserts were equally innovative and the coffee much approved by ma-in-law. However, she agrees with a previous reviewer that there should have been chocolates with the coffee. Luckily, we have had this problem before, and we brought some with us. Our waitress promised her a small teaspoon to go with her coffee cup, but couldn't find them. Could it be there are collectors among the clientèle? Overall experience - we will definitely go there again. It was a lovely experience.
