The Prince of Wales pub in Marlow have thanked the people who recently voted for them in last weeks Readers' Choice.

We asked the people of South Bucks where they think the best Sunday Roast is in the county, with the Mill Road pub finishing in second place, behind The Crown in Radnage.

And even though they finished as runners up, chefs Carol Newell and Julie Bright shared their delight following the recognition, as they only started working at the pub in January this year.

Julie told the Bucks Free Press: “It was quite a shock when we read the news.

“We had no idea that the poll had taken place so when we read the article, it was lovely to see.

“I was literally going through the paper on Friday morning and saw our name which was a pleasant surprise.

“I read it three times as I didn’t believe it, so I said to Carol to read it herself because it didn’t sink in.”

The duo used to run the food bar at Marlow Football Club before they were approached by the pub in January to take over their kitchen.

Since taking over, the twosome have formed a formidable partnership at the pub, as they admitted to making all their food from scratch, their engagement with their customers is widly known across the community and if they were to have any left over food, they don’t throw it away.

Carol revealed: “We don’t have very much food to throw away but if we do, we will make a bubble and squeak as we love making it, it’s a popular hit with our customers and we want to use all the fresh food we’ve got.

“Everything we make is homemade.

“The pastries, the chips, the pies, sausage rolls, scotch eggs, all the meals are all made from scratch with the vegetables and meat always coming from a source which is local.

“We care for our customers and we want to make sure they're getting the best experience possible.”

For their Sunday Roasts, the Prince of Wales offer chicken, beef, a vegetarian option and occasionally lamb.
