Michelin-starred restaurant Hand & Flowers to add rooms

Michelin-starred restaurant the Hand & Flowers in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, is set to become a restaurant-with-rooms after its owners purchased an adjacent cottage.

Owners Tom and Beth Kerridge, who lease the award winning pub-restaurant from Greene King, have purchased a cottage located behind the building's car park.

Tom Kerridge said: "We have a lot of guests from London in the area as there's a number of great places to eat out. However I felt there was a lack of mid-priced accommodation."

They intend to spend £40,000 to £50,000 converting it into two luxury en-suite bedrooms, which will be marketed at around £180 per night.

One of the rooms will have a Jacuzzi located in the garden behind it and the Kerridges also have a second cottage in the village under offer. If successful this will also be converted into two luxury rooms.

The Kerridges hope to have the first two rooms ready by the end of March.
