The new bar, Baroosh, opens in Marlow on Monday 17th December – located where Lloyds Bank used to be.
We popped in to check it out during their preview weekend – so here is what you can expect:
Baroosh is part of a small chain focused on the South of England- Marlow is the 7th one. One key aspect that separates from most other pubs and bars in town is a strict over 21s policy at all times – and when we say all times that includes breakfast and lunch. Obviously this takes it out of the “family lunch” market, but the aimed for ambiance is adult, stylish and contemporary.
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!
We tried the food – and were pleased with the quality, some photos and comments are below. We have to admit having seen the decor we were expecting some quite hefty prices. It turned out not to be the case at all – menus are on the Baroosh website.
Baroosh should prove popular – during the day it would be ideal for work and shopping lunches, and in the evening it should pull in a crowd. In the summer, it should be a bit special – the decked garden area is the largest outdoor pub space in the town centre, complete with an outdoor bar and pizza oven!
