Graham Coombs left this review about The Butcher's Tap

A one-time pub converted into a butcher's shop-cum-pub, with a nicely designed interior, successfully feeling quite old-style but obviously not. A long meat counter is followed by a bar counter serving the house Hand & Flowers IPA and Rebellion Smugglers. A cool cabinet under the bar offered an enticing range of home-made pies and scotch eggs; the pork pie was exceptional. The main change to previous reviews is that the pub part is now open all day. Live music and other entertainments are provided occasionally, but goodness knows where as it is not large. Worth a visit for the novelty value. And the pies.

A pub/butchers hybrid! I had read about it in the Times a while ago and a trip to Marlow allowed for investigation.

On Saturdays, its a bar all day - as well as a Butchers of course. I was there about 2:30pm. I don't know what it says about other Marlow pubs, but it was packed. No a free table to be had.

Two hand pulls on - Rebellion Gold and a Greene King labelled "hand and flowers". Gold was in OK condition. The meat looked much better. Sausage rolls in a chiller next to the till could not be ignored. £7.50 when added with the pint.

Too small to be comfortable but an interesting experience.

A third Tom Kerridge hostelry in this well-heeled Thames-side town after The Hand & Flowers and The Coach. As noted below, this operates as a butchery until 5pm, becoming a pub thereafter. Smaller than previous incarnations (The Carpenters Arms and O'Donoghue's) this has a deep marble-topped servery against the right-hand wall, almost taking up half the internal space, with a smattering of tables and chairs opposite, although there is an alcovey bit by the front window. Black and white tile effect floor, part-wooden walls with part black tiles and three small flatscreen TVs amongst some butching paraphernalia (there's meat also hanging in the front window). Two ales on - local Rebellion Smuggler (£4) and "Hand & Flowers IPA" (there's a GK sign outside, so take a guess). Slightly overloud muzak in the Jack Johnson vein (yawn) and the overall impression is of somewhere to avoid feline-swinging if there's more than a handful of people in.
