Buckinghamshire is home to a new Michelin-starred restaurant.
Chef Tom Kerridge’s pub The Coach, in Marlow, just a short stroll from his two Michelin-starred Hand and Flowers restaurant, picked up a Michelin star of its own on Monday.
Buckinghamshire diners are also within easy dining distance of the only place outside London to have two restaurants in possession of three Michelin stars – the highest culinary accolade possible – Bray, just over the border in Berkshire.
For years Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck and Alain Roux’s Waterside Inn have been recognised for their gastronomic excellence in Bray and once again they have proved to be a cut above the rest, but they have also been joined by the Hinds Head and the Royal Oak, also in Bray, in this year’s Michelin Guide, announced on Monday.
The Coach in Marlow is owned by chef Kerridge but led by Nick Beardshaw and head chef Tom De Keyser.Tom said: “I am over the moon for my wonderful team at The Coach.“Chef Nick and the whole crew front and back of house work tirelessly every day to provide a welcoming neighbourhood place.”
About The Coach in Marlow:
The Coach opened in 2014 with the aim of offering a flexible, relaxed and accessible pub where everybody is welcome.
The pub is open seven days a week, from early morning through to late evening, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with simple food offerings and refreshments to fill the gaps in between.
The design of the space is simple and homely with a long steel topped bar, with comfortable leather seating overlooking the large open kitchen enabling the chefs and restaurant team to interact with guests.
The menu includes mussels marinière with warm stout and brown bread; whole stuffed Rotisserie quail with mushroom and sherry velouté; and Cornish pollock Scotch egg with lobster bisque.
There is also a Sunday roast, featuring a rotisserie meat of the day served with Yorkshire puddings and trimmings and a daily breakfast menu including Staffordshire oat cakes with bacon and cheese.
