Hotel in Marlow

Macdonald Compleat Angler, which is romantically set overlooking the Thames at Marlow, Buckinghamshire, is offering a special five-course Valentine's Tasting Menu on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th February in its redesigned AA two rosette Riverside Restaurant. With its candlelit dining rooms and stunning views across the river, this elegant hotel is sure to set the mood for love.

Begin your night of romance with a glass of champagne in the Cocktail Bar to the gentle sounds of the hotel's resident pianist before indulging in the tempting Tasting Menu, which has been specially created for the evening by the new Head Chef, Michael Lloyd.

Starters include cauliflower and truffle soup and milk poached chicken terrine; the fish course is fillet of brill with crispy oyster followed by cannon of lamb. There's a pre-dessert and a refreshing lemon tart with crème fraiche sorbet and coffee and petit fours. And, of course, no Valentine's dinner would be complete without a rose for your partner.

Afterwards, stay in one of the hotel's 64 stylish bedrooms and suites, many have river views and some are in sight and sound of water cascading over Marlow Weir.

The Valentine's Tasting Menu is priced at £69 per person and double rooms start from £199 B&B. To book call Macdonald Compleat Angler on 0844 879 9128 or visit website www.MacdonaldHotels.co.uk/CompleatAngler
