It is not a surprise that Tom Kerridge makes an appearance on our list as his West Street restaurant is number one in our list.

The popular gastropub has two Michelin stars to its name and is located a few doors down from where novelist Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein.

One of the most reviews on Tripadvsior said: "We visited for a special birthday lunch with our one-year old daughter.

“We checked that the restaurant was child friendly but cannot thank the staff enough on how accommodating and kind they were.

“The food was exceptional; I highly recommend the haddock and Parmesan omelette and also the duck breast.

“The restaurant does not have a children’s menu but offers a kids portion of fish/steak and chips so our daughter was treated to an amazing fish and chips lunch with ice cream for afters.

“Most restaurants of this standard wouldn’t dream of having kids in but the team at the Hand and Flowers were so welcoming and we didn’t feel awkward at all.

“It was lovely for us as Mum and Dad to have a fabulous lunch out accompanied but our little girl.

3. Sindhu, Marlow Bridge Lane

Probably one of the best Indian restaurants in the whole of Marlow and it’s clear to see why.
