Her Majesty The Queen picked an award-winning Buckinghamshire restaurant as the place to eat out, for the very time, at a public restaurant outside of London. 

On Thursday, June 24, 1999, the riverside Macdonald Compleat Angler in Marlow made history when the Royal visited and ate, for the first time, at a public restaurant outside the capital. 

His Excellency, Arpad Göncz, the President of Hungary, invited the Queen, accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh and Prince Charles, to be his guests at The Compleat Angler where they dined in The Riverside Restaurant in a special private function. 

The top Marlow restaurant has shared the special memory ahead of the monarch's Platinum Jubilee next week. 

Claire Steven, Macdonald Compleat Angler General Manager, said: “We are really proud of the rich history and heritage at our hotel and the fact we can claim the royal seal of approval is a real privilege.

"We look forward to welcoming those celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in style with us to enjoy a meal or afternoon tea on the banks of the River Thames with unparalleled views of the Marlow Weir.”
