Most recent visitor review added:Review of The Slug and LettuceThe S&L serve a really good full English breakfast from 10am. Particularly good value on a Monday when it is half price! An additional advantage is that the pub is usually almost empty at this time of day so you can have a large table to yourself on which to spread out your newspaper! Rating:

The latest addition to Marlow High St is a large, upmarket, and over 21s bar. An impressive interior design, but prices are not exorbitant at all. Cocktails start from 5.95, shooters at 3.50, plus a good range of draft and bottled ales, lagers and ciders. (The real ale is from parent company McMullens brewery). Wine costs from about 13 a bottle.. right up to some quite pricey champagne! Open until 1am Fri/Sat. Read our detailed review from the opening in December 2012.
In their own words:An over 21's venue where our aim is to bring you great food and a carefully selected range of drinks with attentive, friendly service that is far from the ordinary. We know that there are few who can match our attention to detail, delivering consistent quality throughout, in a grown up atmosphere that seamlessly adjusts to the pace of your day.
56-58 High Street, SL7 1AH , 01628 472 878
Large pub to the east of town. Recently redeveloped, and significantly improved. Good value food - traditional pub grub in decent portions. Our full review on opening is in our blog here. We will update on atmosphere and everything else once it's been open a short while!

51 High Street, 01628 482053
Antosh and Aaron who run the bar inject a real buzz into the place which has a great ambiance, and a friendly welcome. They also excel at putting on some great entertainment - regular DJ nights, live music, film nights, a monthly quiz... and have had some quite high profile "headline acts" at party nights, keep an eye out for those! In the summer there is the lovely little courtyard garden, with an outdoor bar. The food offering is based around tapas-sized portions ideal for a snack or buy a few to share, plus a few mains. Homemade and delicious. We like it there, can you tell?
In their own words:Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Marlow High Street we are an independent bar and kitchen owned and run by two friends who share a passion for style, service and music. Created with the vision of being a destination venue where you can eat, drink and party in style, we combine quality entertainment with real good burgers and lovingly crafted cocktails bringing a touch of London's vibrant bar scene to Buckinghamshire.

The Coach and Horses
Small pub, with the bizarre twist of serving Chinese takeaway on the premises, so you can have a beer while you wait, or indeed eat it there. I used to go there every Friday night, but the less said about what I used to get up to on Friday nights 15 years ago the better! Is much quieter now....
West Street, 01628 483013
The Cross Keyshttp://www.pubinmarlow.com
A busy pub, with a loyal clientele. Big screen sports, and quite often have special events advertised. A pretty lively place. Late Licence: Fri and Sat until 2.30am.
46 Spittal Street, 01628 482522
Large pub, though the fact it is a (short) walk from the High Street means it attracts less of the tourist crowds, but still has a decent buzz, and we always experience a friendly welcome. Good range of food, and a huge garden - the best pub garden in town I'd say. Family friendly, with children allowed up till 9pm. Has a quiz on Thursdays.. we tried it out and came second. Late Licence: Fri and Sat until midnight.
Station Road, 01628 482022
The Duke of Cambridge
A decent traditional local pub. A short walk from the town centre, but worth it for a change of scene and pace!
Queens Road, 01628 484994
The George and Dragonwww.tabletable.co.uk
Extensively refurbished in Aug 2008, and is a restaurant as much as a pub (see entry in our restaurant section). Going there on a Friday night we were overwhelmed by the very young average age of clientele, not sure if this is normal, so until we revisit we will rely on your comments..... Late Licence: Fri and Sat until midnight.
The Causeway, 0870 111 2832
The Hare and Hounds
*closed AGAIN*. Lovely location for a pub/restaurant - but has changed hands a number of times in recent years. Due to reopen shortly.....
Henley Road, 01628 481188
A welcoming and friendly pub with a good atmosphere. Decent beers - a proper pub! They also have a long established Open Mic night on Thursdays.
In their own words:O'Donoghues is an oasis for sports fans and musicians wanting to indulge in conversation and observation of their chosen passion as well as been a great place to network after work with superb real ales or quality wine.
15 Spittal Street, SL7 3HJ (find on Google Maps)
The Prince of Wales
Has a very small front bar, and a larger area out the back where food is served. In fact, because the bar is so small it gives the impression of being busy when there are in fact only a few punters. Serves (bizarrely for a pub) Thai food, which can also be taken away. Late Licence: Fri and Sat until midnight.
Mill Road, 01628 482970
The Royal Oakwww.royaloakmarlow.co.uk
A great country pub, a stones throw from Marlow town centre. Rebellion beer on tap (3 varieties on my last visit). Decent sized garden with a 'Petanque' area. Most of interior is in effect a restaurant, where the food is of a very high quality, and warrants a fuller review in our restaurant listings.
Frieth Road, Bovingdon Green, SL7 2JF, 01628 488611
Popular pub with a cosy and traditional wooden beamed bar in the front, a newer extension out the back and a sizeable, beer garden. The building itself dates from the 16th century. Very popular at the weekend, often queues outside after 10pm. Late Licence: Fri and Sat until 1 or 2am, depending on how busy they are.
West Street, 01628 484360
The Slug and Lettucewww.slugandlettuce.co.uk
A spacious pub, attracting a youngish crowd, with a good selection of beers and serving a wide selection of food all day. Part of a well known chain, so nothing like a traditional pub... but does a good job in its target market. DETAILS: Food served: Until 10pm every day. Late license: Fri and Sat until 1am. Beer Garden: Very small (four tables). Parking: On-street only. Children welcome: Yes, until 10PM, kids menu and baby changing. Wifi: No. Disabled access? Yes, with disabled toilets. REGULAR EVENTS: Quiz Night Tuesday, Half-price food all day Monday.
82-84 High Street, 01628 478737
The Three Horseshoes
Just outside of town, past the Marlow Bottom turn on the way up to High Wycombe. Very highly rated for it's Rebellion beers, and extensive food selection. Worth leaving the town centre to visit - just get someone else to drive so you can make the most of that lovely beer!
Wycombe Road, Burroughs Grove, 01628 483109
The Two Brewerswww.twobrewersmarlow.com
*sadly CLOSED for now- devastated by a fire. Now undergoing rebuilding/repairs* A historic old pub, dating from 1755, and certainly retains the traditional English pub atmosphere. Well known for it's food, which is somewhat more sophisticated than your typical "pub grub", see separate entry in our Restaurant reviews. Late Licence: Fri and Sat until midnight.
