Pub in The Park kicks off this weekend, so here is our handy summary of what we cna expect, what time the bands and chef demos are on, and more.
(We don’t have to mention ticket prices etc, since the whole event has of course sold out)
Onsite you can pick up a programme with the full size map, but you can see from below the rough layout – Chef’s demo stage, live music, shopping village, pub games….. and all 10 pop-up food outlets, and 11 bars!
Food and Drink
As mentioned, there will be 10 pop-up versions of highly regarded restaurants and gastropubs – plenty of Michelin stars between them. On top of that, we will have 11 bars to choose from! Remember you can be the first to try Rebellion lager here, and of course enjoy Marlow’s own sparking wine from Harrow and Hope. We like the sound of the Cocktail bus too!
Each pop-up restaurant will have sampling size versions of about 3 dishes to buy – at £5 each. To give an idea, we have (obviously!) focused on the 3 local restaurants that will feature. The Coach’s ham hock terrine is an absolute MyMarlow favourite, so I’ll put at least £5 on that!
Our brief summary of what each chef is best known for doesn’t really do justice to their careers and achievements, so just Google if unsure. But anyway – here’s the list of who is on and crucially – when!

The Shopping Village
There is a separate area on site for exhibitors, and looking at the list we counted precisely 100 of them. Local places like Coopers, Rebellion .. and well, 98 other food and drink related vendors from round the country. So, plenty to wander round and have a mooch at. Like MyMarlow, you will probably be trying to sniff out any free samples! 🙂
Well – that’s for us all to find out when we get there!
Fingers crossed for the weather – have fun everyone!
