Where to eat… Hand and Flowers, Marlow


When I arrived, I was pleasantly surprised by the vegetarian menu I was given, three options for starter, three options for main course, and several desserts.


The portions were small for the cost. I had the Portobello Ravioli for starter, which was fine, although the mushroom taste was overpowering.

For main course I chose the Chicory Tart Tatin. This was essentially a sugary treacle tart with some chicory and sugar cubes (maple) on top. I tried to complain, but was just told it had to be that sweet to compensate for the bitterness of the chicory. In fact, I had to eat the chicory on its own to get away from the shocking sweetness of the tart, and I could only manage half of it before giving up.

This meant there was no need for a pudding, as i had already had it in the main.

I was so excited when I was given an entire menu to choose from, but unfortunately the same effort hadn’t been put into the food. Not worth the hype. so disappointing. Especially for almost £100 each.

Eat Without The Meat rating: 3/10
