Early days yet….. but a planning application has been lodged by Tom and Beth Kerridge in relation to the Coach and Horses pub, Marlow.
It is described as “” … refurbishment of existing property with single storey extension to the rear…”
So what does Marlow’s celebrity 2 Michelin starred restaurateur have in mind?
(For anyone who doesn’t know, Tom runs the 2 starred Hand and Flowers in Marlow, and has had his own TV series etc etc. All round great chef and nice bloke)
Looking at the proposed layout – it does not seem to suggest a traditional restaurant layout that you might expect – but retaining a pub layout, with a much increased bar size, with lots of bar seating. The plans also include a substantial sized kitchen at the back – this bit is perhaps not a surprise! So, in a word .. interesting!! We will of course keep you posted as we hear more.
Have a look for yourself at: WDC Planning application page and search for reference: 14/06446/FUL
Extracts are shown below. On the left, the current layout pretty much unchanged since I first set foot in there over 25 years ago. On the right, Tom’s proposed layout.
