    Faultless, we absolutely loved every aspect of our evening. beautiful setting, impeccable service, divine cocktails and mouthwateringly delicious food. Every member of staff went out of their way to make our visit perfect and it was a joy to be in their company, I've never seen a happier bunch of people working together to provide such a slick service for their guests. They really are a credit to the hotel. This was our first visit to the restaurant and definitely won't be our last!

    Everything has gone well and we enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere of the restaurant. However, the rose given on the evening was fading like a dried flower which was a big disappointment to my wife.

    We had a fabulous meal at the Macdonald Compleat Angler in Marlow. The food was delicious particularly the Goat's Curd Starter with Beetroot and also the style and presentation of the Smoked Salmon starter. The Rib Eye steak was gorgeous. The restaurant was nice and busy and had a great atmosphere. The service was first class. The setting is so beautiful. You really couldn't ask for a more pretty riverside location. It was extra special as all the Christmas lights had just been put up. Definitely 10 out of 10.

    We had afternoon tea at the Compleat Angler. Staff were exceptionally polite and pleasant. The food was scrumptious. Lovely view across the river from the restaurant. All in all a wonderful afternoon was had by all.

    We went for afternoon tea. The service was excellent! It was a little confusing where to go to be seated & pay the bill.
    Some of the sandwich bread was a bit hard, the scones were amazing, the lemon cake & macaroon were amazing. All in all a good experience. Location superb!

    Lovely setting for afternoon tea overlooking the Thames. We had a lovely afternoon with attentive service. As it was a Saturday we could only book from 16:00 and as we were six and it was for a special occasion we chatted a lot and the time passed quickly. The afternoon ended up being spoiled when the Restaurant Manager asked us to vacate the table at 17:45 stating "according on their website". He could easily have asked us to move to informal seating elsewhere - instead we felt we were being thrown out of the hotel. People should be aware of the time limitation at weekends, as it is not very long if you are in a group in a relaxed atmosphere.

    I took my friend for afternoon tea on Sunday to celebrate her birthday. The service was really good, tea was nice, scones and treats were delicious. However the sandwiches had far too much butter in- at first I thought it was a thick layer of cream cheese in the salmon. We asked for another round with less butter but it came out very similar. Such a shame. We really enjoyed the location and the afternoon was a success so I might go again and just have scones.
