No frills (but lots of fun) in Marlow

One of the last to turn 30, the Doc invited us to Marlow for cocktails and long-awaited catch-ups. We checked in en-masse into the Holiday Inn in High Wycombe, which at an unbelievable £30 a night per person, is excellent value for money. A record 15 minutes later and we were primped and preened and ready to roll for dinner at the Marlow Bar and Grill, followed by the main event: the party itself. The Doc, being of extraordinarily large brain, has married a Brazilian cocktail-maker extraordinaire, so we knocked back caipirinhas a-plenty! The next day, we were not so primped and preened, but we did have a lovely brunch and walk around Marlow: who knew chocolate-box prettiness was the most effective hangover cure of them all?

    Sounds like a fun time! I love Marlow, have spent many lovely afternoons there but not been for a while. I need to visit the Steamer Trading Cookshop and Living in Store and then go sit in the park with an ice cream! Thank you for sharing your photos.

    • Ooh sounds like a day out fit for a queen (especially the ice cream), enjoy! X
