| | ,

Tom Kerridge has revealed his intentions for plans for his second site in town (Just in case you didn’t know – Tom holds two Michelin stars at the Hand and Flowers).

An artists impression of what Tom MIGHT look like outside the pub, and what he MIGHT say.

We reported some time ago that he was interested in taking over the Coach and Horses, a long established traditional  pub, which also sold Chinese food.

So here is the bullet point summary of what to expect:

  • Due to open in November, and it will be renamed “The Coach
  • Serve breakfast, lunch and dinner – with a menu changing to reflect the time of day
  • Service will be less formal in style than the Hand and Flowers- and all members of the team will be taking orders
  • Will be headed up by current Hand & Flowers senior sous chef Nick Beardshaw
  • There will be an open kitchen – featuring a rotisserie
  • Much of the seating at  a long metallic counter – see plans below.
  • Small, muted television screens will be show live sport
  • The intention is that dishes will be served when ready – instead of all at the same time. (like Wagamamas and similar places)
  • There will be a “no bookings” policy
  • Dishes will cost in the range £6 – £15
  • The Coach will be big enough to seat 40



Update: 15-8-14 – on online article from The Caterer has even more details

  1. It would be great to see a Coach & Horses classic Chinese dish on the menu for old time sake. Perhaps a homage to their Mongolian Spare ribs or Sweet & Sour chicken balls?!
    The old Chinese was very popular with many Marlownians and I appreciate time for a change but would be a great relic to have on the menu and a popular one I’m sure! Thanks

  2. Either watch sport or not! Why have it on in the background? There are enough distractions from phones / iPads without husbands / boyfriends staring at TV’s all through lunch/dinner! You may alienate a lot of ladies! Has put me off a bit!
