A Friday evening and the restaurant was very busy, however, the service was excellent - quick and very friendly. The menu was varied, the hanging kebabs were very popular, we felt it to be very good value for money. Certainly worth a return visit.

Lovely lunch , lots of variety and good service. Went there on the off chance as thought the new Ivy a bit pricey. Will definitely return.

Good food and service on offer. Enjoyed our meal and would recommend this restaurant. The parking is limited however. The restaurant is located on Marlow high street so quite central to everything.

Lovely food and drink especially the cocktails only downside were the plates as they were the same as weather spoons so made it made the food look less impressive than it was

Hi Gillian, Our menu is the same on Sundays as the rest of the week with the addition of a Chicken or Beef Sunday roast! And maybe a cheeky Bloody Mary to wash it down.... See you soon!
