Hot New Opening: The Oarsman

Located on Spittal Street, the newly re-opened The Oarsman brings seasonal bistro style to the heart of Marlow. 

Under the new ownership of highly respected industry figures Nigel Sutcliffe and James Mclean, The Oarsman reopened with a fresh approach to dining. The bar and restaurant features an open kitchen presentation that enables the guests to view the chefs in action, creating a host of seasonal dishes from the best local suppliers. In addition to the kitchen, small plates from the charcuterie and larder counter help to establish The Oarsman as the perfect place to meet whether for a relaxed drink or a sophisticated dining experience.

Nigel and James have worked together for over 20 years within the industry, collaborating through the Restaurateur Consultancy organisation Truffle Hunting. Nigel has most recently been working with Heston Blumenthal and his Fat Duck Group to develop one of the world’s truly elite restaurants, The Crown at Bray.

This creativity, attention to detail and understanding of the guest expectation from the pair is sure to deliver an exquisite dining experience at The Oarsman. We joined Robert Walton MBE, President of the Restaurant Association, in conversation with Nigel Sutcliffe to discuss what diners can expect from the newly reopened Bistro and Pub.
