November at the oarsman

November, the final fling for the forager before winter sets in. It can be a beautiful month as the trees reach their full glowing autumn colour, picked up by the low winter light.

In the kitchen, we’ll be looking in the British Isles for Penny Bun Bolete (ceps), Chestnuts, Quince and of course continue with great Scottish Game and Venison.

This month, we will celebrate the new year of Beaujolais in our Prix Fixe menu for a week from Monday the 14th (watch out for Escargots En Jardiniere and our favourite Petit Salé) before we move on to our special Thanksgiving treats the following week, for our all our friends across the pond.

ON THE PLATES – from our weekly Prix Fixe Menu

Christmas in Marlow

Hang up your stockings, wrap up warm and join us for plenty of festive spirit and a healthy dose of Christmas cheer!

Settle in and relax at our cosy pub – letting us take care of the hard work this year. We have a traditional Three Course Christmas Party Menu available throughout December for you to book in advance of your reservation, and a beautiful private room for intimate celebrations.


If you’re searching for that perfect present, or can’t decide what to gift a loved one, colleague or friend, why not treat that special someone to the gift of the pub – that way they can choose their own feel-good experience! If you are looking for a different way to thank your clients and employees this year, treat them to a three-course feast or even just a couple of pints at the pub.

Keep your eyes peeled for Black Friday (through to Cyber Monday) when every voucher purchased will have an added 10% of the value, on us!
