The Vanilla Pod is - without benefit of any Michelin stars - one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten in - and I've eaten in quite a few starred establishments, both here and in other countries.

I've had lunches and dinners there several times in recent years, always with the greatest pleasure; both the food and the service are always of the highest order. In 2010 it was the Regional Winner of the Good Food Guide Readers' Restaurant of the Year Award, and has many excellent reviews in national newspapers, local magazines and online.

The previous reviewer (Alexander) is either not familiar with restaurants of this type and quality, or perhaps he was just having a bad day. And in case you are wondering, I have absolutely no connection whatsoever with the restaurant or its owners - I just happen to think they're very, very good at what they do.

The food was average and the atmosphere was rather like being in a stuck up aunties dining room with family you despise. The best gourmet food in Marlow is being served by Adam Simmons at Danesfield House.

Have had 3 meals at the Vanilla Pod. All were excellent, good choice, well presented and well cooked food, good wine list, friendly and professional service. Just feel it lacks something - perhaps it's just a bit boring?. Don't go there for a fun night with you girl friend, but excellent for your discriminating in-laws.

Had a simply wonderful dinner at the Vanilla Pod in Marlow. Although it was a week day the restaurant was full and we had to book. The prices are really for special occasions, but it is a set price so you know what you are in for apart, from the drinks. The food on the plate looked like a work of art particularly the puddings. It was very much quality rather than quantity and you felt that everything was very fresh. I had scallops, followed by sea bass, both of which were melt in the mouth wonderful. Definitely worth a visit.
