A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting Marlow for a long anticipated trip to The Hand and Flowers -  Tom Kerridge's two Michelin stared restaurant. It was incredible. But this is a post about brunch, so I'll tell you no more than that, only to say go there, go there now!

Little known to us Tom Kerridge has two restaurants in Marlow, the lesser known is The Coach, an intimate little pub in the heart of the town. It has the same approach as the hand in flowers in that its a relaxed, cozy affair with an emphasis on delivering bloody good food. 

The evening menu offers British tapas style dining with a choice of meat, no meat and sweet. We gazed upon the evening menu and a few of the dishes that caught our eye were Rotisserie of the day, chicken kiev with cauliflower cheese and smoked haddock and black pudding scotch egg. 

The Coach operates on a first come first served basis, there is no booking system and with just 40 covers it's pretty small. So as you can imagine, it gets quite busy. Fortunately we were visiting on a Friday morning and were lucky enough to get a table. Brunch was the order of the day...

Carlton (the man in my life) opted for muesli followed by a bacon sarnie. I opted for eggs Benedict (always my brunch dish of choice, always.) but needless to say, it was a little bit more special than that. The muesli is of course handmade, the bacon is honey glazed and the hollandaise for the eggs Benni is made to order.

So, enough of my ramblings, have a look for yourself and I bet your mouth will be watering by the time you've scrolled to the bottom of the page...
