Proudly showcasing 2 AA Rosettes, The Riverside Restaurant serves fine British cuisine in a heavenly riverside setting. Alongside the bright, boathouse-style dining room, the pretty terrace is opened during summer.

Making use of premium, sustainable fish and meat stocks, the The Riverside Restaurant menu offers a quintessentially British menu with European accents. Rich, heady flavours are weaved throughout, with dishes like medallions of veal with sweetbreads and artichokes, or asparagus and forest mushroom pastry with lemon butter. Desserts range from light and cleansing sorbets and parfaits, to rich chocolate fondant with coconut ice cream.

As well as a wholesome breakfast menu, The Riverside Restaurant Marlow offers a delightfully nostalgic afternoon tea selection. As well as rich cakes and fragrant leaf teas, enjoy scones smothered with homemade seasonal jam and Devon clotted cream.

Sophisticated yet infinitely relaxed, regular jazz dinners at The Riverside Restaurant restaurant combine fine dining with soulful live music. Marlow Rail Station is a 2-minute drive away.

    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.

    Slightly overwhelmed going to a "posh" Restaurant, but was made to feel very welcome by all the staff. Afternoon tea was served by very helpful staff, but was slighty spoiled by the mouthy OAP on the next table demanding everything. Well done for the waiting staff who stayed very calm.

    A pleasant afternoon tea. Although we were originally due to have tea served in the lounge area, as it was a nice day we sat outside on the balcony overlooking the river. The quality of the food was very good, and the quantity totally satisfactory, even so, we were asked if we wanted any more tea, sandwiches etc. Service was excellent. All in all I thought the cost at £27.50 a head plus service @12.5% represented good value.

    4 of us went for lunch and chose off their set menu. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. Service was fantastic and they brought us a birthday cake each as 3 of us celebrate our birthdays. Highly recommended

    My friends and I has the most amazing afternoon. Everything about the experience was top notch. The staff were very friendly but professional, very attentive and the afternoon tea was fabulous. We spent three hours eating and drinking tea in such a lovely ambience, we came away totally sated and so relaxed, we just couldn't have asked for more. We will certainly be doing this again and will recommend to all our friends.
