Bowaters at the Compleat Angler
WowThis was a fantastic night out, the staff were very attentive amd the food was delighful18/05/2013 00:00:00fabulous eveningwe stayed one night at the compleat angler on saturday 11/5/13, we booked into the bowater's restaurant for dinner. we had a fantastic meal, the menu was 'different', and included some interesting ingredients and combinations of food not found in your everyday restaurant. we thoroughly enjoyed our experience.
I thought the food prices were reasonable for a quality establishment but the wine prices a little too steep in comparrison.
but overall, a great evening.11/05/2013 00:00:00Business lunchI booked this restaurant for a business lunch and I would highly recommend it. Food is excellent and unfussy, the only thing I would say is that the staff were a little over attentive and we felt a little rushed to order our food. However once we were eating, we were not bothered again.
Would definitely return here, especially if the company was paying as it's a little on the expensive side! But worth every penny.07/05/2013 00:00:00An excellent Anniversary eveningI am a local man. It is many years since my last visit to "the Angler". - The evening was a total success! And certainly will not be my last visit.
How nice to have an evening out when you are treated as something special.
I have been used to going to an establishment in Sonning, where one is always treated well - however I was more impressed with the food and wine at "the Angler"
I will certainly call again.13/04/2013 00:00:00Beautiful settingSuch a beautiful place to sit and watch the river and world go by. Market lunch menu is adequate although I would have liked another meat choice Staff are very courteous and attentive.30/03/2013 00:00:00Jazz at the Compleat AnglerYou can't beat a Sunday lunch with jazz by the saxophonist at the Compleat Angler. Take your friends or family. Excellent food, music, ambience and service.24/02/2013 00:00:00Boaters at The Complete AnglerReally enjoyed our lunch at Bowaters. Food and service were excellent. Would return again.17/02/2013 00:00:00Lunch at BowatersDelicious food and good service.............but a little cold sitting by the window with no heating - I had asked for a nice view of the river, but we were in fact put at a corner table with a fire extinguisher next to us and it was rather chilly. Maybe I should have said something but as I was taking a colleague for lunch for her birthday, I didn't want to make a fuss!13/02/2013 00:00:00A little luxuryQuality of food was excellent, with attentive service throughout the meal
The restaurant overlooks the raging Thames and the combination of candle lights, reflected on the conservatory, and lights from the bridge on the river gives a beautiful setting
I had promised my wife we would stay at the Compleat Angler for some time-the Bowaters restaurant did not disappoint
We felt that service of our meal was rushed. We sat down at 8.05pm and by 8.55pm both starter and main course had been served and eaten. What should have been a leisurely evening became a rushed hour
There was a conference party of 50 people elsewhere in the hotel and we had the impression that you were trying to get normal diners out of the way
Disappointing, but excellent08/02/2013 00:00:00BowatersWe were staying at The Compleat Angler and had a dinner booking at Bowaters. The restaurant is lovely, with great food and wine and a spectacular setting, overlooking The Thames and Marlow Church. Although we were there in January with freezing temperatures outside, they have quite a few tables on the balcony outside, which would be lovely in the summer. I wouldn't recommend Bowaters for children (we went without) as it is more of a peaceful atmosphere! Really enjoyed the whole experience. Last time we went to The Compleat Angler we ate at Aubergine, which was also good. If you are a fussy eater, look at the menu online before you book, as you may find yourself somewhat limited for choice. This applies to both restaurants.11/01/2013 16:00:00Sunday Lunch Set MenuGreat choices, Roast Sirloin was Excellent, service very good - Lovely outlook would highly recommend.29/12/2012 16:00:00Food with a viewWe took my parents to Bowaters for their 80th birthdays and we were not disappointed. The food was unusual and beautifully presented and there was a lot of choice. The view over the river is lovely so it was the perfect setting for our celebration.14/09/2012 16:00:00The Compleat AnglerWe lunched in the Bowater restaurant which is right by thr River Thames. Beautiful surroundings, good food and great service. MK12/08/2012 16:00:00
