July at the Oarsman

As summer settles in and the vibrant energy of July surrounds us, we find ourselves to have reached high summer.

This is a time to enjoy the luxury of the season and to reflect on all that has been achieved this year so far; the season to embrace the present, immerse ourselves in the tranquillity of nature, and find solace in life’s simple pleasures.

This month, nature brings us a harvest of Broad Beans, English peas & Strawberries, and Baby Courgettes.


Heading into July means indulging in our new summer menu.

Bask in the sun on our terrace and tuck in to our new dishes and summery spritz.

From the freshest shellfish from the West of Scotland, be prepared for our sustainably sourced shucked Oysters, Lobster and Prawns.

On The Menu:

Half Lobster, Garlic Butter, Fennel Salad, Rouille, Fries

Whole Prawns, Spiced Butter

Mackerel Ceviche, Fennel & Macerated Gooseberries

4th July – EMPANADAS with Chef Belen Aloisi

Belen Aloisi, former part of the Fat Duck Group, now Kitchen & Development Consultant, takes us on an Empanadas extravaganza.

Inspired by the Pulperias from the country mixed with the bars from Bueno Aires, it’s Belen’s ambition to bring these flavours to London. 

Belen will be showcasing the varying regional differences through her wonderful Empanadas.

Expect Carne, Humita, Pescado, and Hongos Empandadas alongside a glass of Argentinian Wine.

So whilst you pop into Marlow to vote, pop into The Oarsman.
