Graham Coombs left this review about The Coach

A nice-looking pub from outside but inside is changed beyond all recognition into a restaurant, but not one as we know it. Occupying much of the room is a large steel-topped bar, surrounded by fixed and quite uncomfortable high-backed stools. The rest is tabled with leather banquettes, squeezed round the periphery and into a back room, while to one side there is a an open kitchen. The beers were Rebellion 'Seasonal', Purity Mad Goose and an IPA of some sort which was not on. A row of keg taps was completely anonymous. Visiting mid afternoon when food was not being served, the place was completely empty apart from numerous staff, all of whom studiously ignored us for some time, before one begrudgingly served us. Appreciating we were not diners (on this occasion) so low-priority but I suspect that 'celebrity chef' Tom Kerridge would frankly be horrified by the front of house service. Not somewhere I would return to drink at, much less eat at.

This barely counts as a pub now and is more a restaurant with a bar. A quizzical look was given to us when we entered by the black-shirted female greeter, who in their haste to guide us away from the tables and towards the bar (which had some fixed chairs, how convivial) almost ended-up assaulting one of my companions. Interior; green and white wall tiling, stainless steel bar top, leather burgundy banquettes (if you are able to get to them). Four pumps, all the beers were chalked on a slate pump clip (…!). 2x Rebellion - Lionheart (decent nick) and IPA, Bombardier and Thatchers Heritage cider. At this point we entered Peak Marlow, with no money being charged for the beer at the point of ordering – one has to request one’s bill at the end of the session. Note that the Hand & Flowers is owned by the same people and operates not too dissimilarly.
