The Vanilla Pod's discreet dining room is tucked away behind an elegant black door in Marlow's West Street. Once home to T.S. Eliot, one of the most distinguished literary figures of the 20th century, the elegant home has been transformed into a modern, stylish restaurant. Rich colours and clean lines give a contemporary and luxurious feel, reflecting the outstanding quality of the food. Sociably round tables with high backed chairs give a sense of privacy and spaciousness. Sophisticated air conditioning has also been installed to further enhance comfort. The kitchen is run under the watchful eye of Chef Proprietor Michael Macdonald, who uses local produce to inspire a creative and extensive menu that changes frequently, which you can enjoy in the main dining room or the upstairs T.S. Eliot private dining room. Michael's vision for The Vanilla Pod was to provide an outstanding standard of food and service, but also to create an atmosphere where guests can relax completely. By having only one sitting per evening, the guests can more freely choose dining time and have all the time they wish, to appreciate the food and each other's company and truly unwind from the outside world. The Vanilla Pod provides fine dining at its best in a beautiful location, where the professionalism of the service allows you to relax and enjoy your experience.
