This little pub in Maidenhead is delightful on arrival. It was girls night out and the meet up a great expectation. I had a couple of nice local beers and a mushroom risotto which was quite nice. It advertises itself as being a place for...More

Popped in for a beer, stopped for a steak. One of the best fillet steaks I've ever had. If I'm back in Maidenhead again I will definitely come back.

Great pub. The best in town in my opinion. Very friendly staff. Food is quite good. There's a table at the back where you can play some of the board games available.

It was fairly busy when we arrived at 0930 on a Saturday night but had pretty much emptied when we left at 1015, which is apparently fairly normal for Maidenhead nightlife these days as it waits for its Crossrail facelift. The drinks were good -...More

This cosylittle pub has a great atmosphere, good beer, wine and spirit list and simple but delicious grub. I have been a few times and not had a bad steak yet. There is always a great background music (jazz, Indi, rock) and a fire crackling...More

I just love this pub. It reminds me of my local where I grew up in Devon. Small, beautiful, friendly and full of character. The only difference is the food. The burgers here are to die for, today I tried to be healthy and had...More

Evening meal yielded a fabulous experience from start to finish. It goes without saying that a 2 Michelin Star kitchen will produce fantastic food - and it certainly does. Drinks on arrival, the restaurant, the fantastic service by every member of staff we came into...More

PLEASE IGNORE THIS REVIEW!! It's not for the Hand and Flowers in Maidenhead, its for Marlow. Tripadvisor have been informed but are (as usual) too slow / incompetent to remove it..

I loved this pub a few years ago but then they put a lot of silly pictures on the wall, board games on the tables and the clientele changed accordingly.

Wow, what an amazingly constructed critique!! Rest assure the Artist has been informed and the board games will be burnt!! [sigh!]

As I suspected gone already. No, I am not ignorant, but you are an ignoramus as your reply to me confirms. You have no command of the English language and you do not tell the truth. You are a fast food chicken shed and have no right to be rated against genuine restaurants and their clientele. Now you have a nice day!

I suspect it will not take you long to get 'Appalling - Would Never Return' removed!!!!! Shame you still have not owned up to 'Worth The Wait' that belongs to The Hand & Flowers Marlow Restaurant and not to Hand & Flowers Maidenhead removed.

You clearly can't read or just plain ignorant to what others say, which one? How many more times, I have reported that review over the past few months a number of times, t/a won't remove it. End

What do you mean if you had a pound for every Hand & Flower Marlow review you would not need to work of course you would not, you are receiving reviews that are not meant for you, a 2 star Michelin restaurant is way over and above whatever you could possibly acclaim to. There are only two reviews left on the site? Why have you not had them removed, they do not belong to you!!!!! "Lives up to its reputation" and "Worth the wait" are both reviews for the Hand & Flowers Marlow not you. Badly placed reviews? Good reviews that are not yours. Yes, shame on you, no assumption just fact and you have admitted to it!

The Hand and Flowers is where you go regardless if you want a well conditioned ale, great wine or fantastic home cooked pub food. The Hand and Flowers happens to make the best pizzas in town as well as all the usual pub classics. You wont find any TV screens in this little gem, just great food and drink and some classic music from the 60's to modern day.
