WHEN I was a little girl on holiday in the Isles of Scilly with my family I became obsessed with crab sandwiches. Since then I've sometimes wondered why- as the crab I have tried can be of varying quality.

HAVING lived exclusively on simple street food during a hazy, lost month in Bangkok a few years back, I was more than a little excited to try the rustic titbits at Marlow’s newest eatery, The Giggling Squid, which claims to bring the flavours of the Thai streets to Marlow.

THE Coriander must be doing something right. It is part of a chain which continues to keep expanding. The menu is regularly reviewed with extra dishes continually added, and the care and passion which goes into the food is obvious.

It was a very grand entrance, leading up to Stoke Park. The long road swept ahead in front of us, a golf course and glorious English countryside flanked the route; then on to the magnificent house in all its imposing splendour.

THERE is no chance of leaving the Harte and Magpies hungry as the portions are huge. If you are looking for good food at a reasonable price, where dogs and family are welcome, this pub is the one for you.

A VODKA bar might not be your first destination when searching around for a bite to eat, but a recent overhaul at Beaconsfield’s Revolution reveals an inviting space with a solid, varied menu which throws up a few surprises.

THE Old Mill in Berkhamsted has undergone an extensive renovation transforming both inside and out into a beautifully designed space. Arriving on a very busy Wednesday evening I wondered if the seasonal cuisine would match the impressive new look.

EARTHY greens and oranges adorn the walls, lanterns hang from the ceilings, wooden screens nestle between tables- going to Papad in Chesham feels as if you are stepping away from Bucks into another country.

I MADE a mistake at my latest visit to a curry house in High Wycombe. I ate too many poppadums. I just can't get enough of the things and while absent mindedly picking at them while talking to my friend I overindulged which led to me struggling with the rest of the meal at Bombay Palace.

BEING a Marlow girl, I’ve remembered many trips to the old Britannia pub over the years, but they weren’t always thought of with fondness. There were the sticky floors, copious amounts of (too much) space which struggled to be filled, and as much as various owners tried to make it look its best, it was always a little on the scruffy side.

YOU'D be hard pushed to meet a friendlier landlord than Richard Edwards at The Potters Arms in Winchmore Hill. Smiley and unassuming he has been at the pub for 16 months and as well as running regular comedy nights and welcoming various clubs he is also offering a menu of pub classics with a restaurant feel.

HENLEY Regatta - the perfect chance to enjoy a typical English summer, quaff back glasses of champagne and have a jolly good time. Oh, and there’s the rowing. Victoria MacFarlaine spent a day at the event.

THE Mill at Sonning has a unique experience for theatre goers with a hot home cooked meal served before you see a show- all in the same venue. The theatre has been entertaining for 30 years and offers a quaint and pleasant experience.

THE Sausage Tree has quite a name in High Wycombe, although it is tucked away in a back street opposite The Rye and could be easily missed. But mention it to any long term resident and they are sure to have a view on it. Having been on my list of places to eat for a long time I was impressed by the choice and standard of the food on offer.

THE Junction's food is not what you expect. The exterior of the pub is slightly overbearing at a busy junction in Wycombe Marsh and I expected your standard pub fare but this was not what I found- instead it was beautifully cooked with carefully prepared dishes and just a touch of fine dining.

WHEN I went travelling around the world I came home with a love for Thai food, after discovering it was my most favourite cuisine I had tried. So it was with some trepidation when I went to the Blue Orchid in Amersham as to whether the food would live up to my expectations. It did in fact surpass them.

I HAVE often drove past Bombay Dream in Wooburn Moor which is on the busy road from High Wycombe to Beaconsfield but never ventured inside. I had heard lots of good things about it so I went along on a fairly busy Thursday night with high expectations.
