Marlow’s latest pub which will replace the outgoing Baroosh has confirmed their opening day.

The Duke of Clarence, which will be on the High Street, will officially open to the public on Wednesday, March 25.

They have replaced Baroosh after it was confirmed in January that the restaurant was going to be given a huge revamp.

The restaurant is owned by McMullen and Sons, and the independent pub operator took inspiration from the town, as well as William Shakespeare, for the eatery’s new name.

Oliver Shinn, the Duke of Clarence’s general manager said: “We are delighted to bring some good humoured, traditional with a twist, fun to Marlow.

“The Duke of Clarence will, we hope you agree, couple great design with a relaxed atmosphere - bursting with character.

“Expect contemporary yet traditional cocktails, craft beer, small batch production gins, gourmet burgers, bespoke seasonal dishes, brunch, entertainment and a shuffleboard - the perfect opportunity for some competitive socialising.

“Dogs will, of course, be welcome and wine is sold only by the glass or bottle, although never in quantities large enough for drowning royalty.”

Join managing director Heydon Mizon added: “We are delighted to continue to invest in Marlow following our recent openings further afield in Biggleswade, Great Notley, Stortford and London.

“The Duke of Clarence will officially open in March, followed by our next investments in Cambridge, where we’re developing a traditional pub with black box theatre, and Fitzrovia, London.”

The name reflects George Plantagenet, 1st Duke of Clarence, who forfeited his title in 1478, after he had been convicted of treason against his brother.

He allegedly met his end by being drowned in a butt of Malmsey (according to William Shakespeare) and his son, Prince Edward was later executed and his head buried at nearby Bisham Abbey.
