user reviews of O'Donoghues, Marlow

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Our final stop in Buckinghamshire yesterday was this place. It's now called the Butcher's Tap and is quite a unique place. As you enter, it has the smell and appearance of a butchers. Chefs behind the bar/counter were preparing steaks on a chopping board. There were 2 ales. The standard one is Greene King Hand & Flowers IPA. I opted for the guest, which was Rebellion Zebedee. It's a small place. All tables were taken. So it was standing room only. Unisex toilets are hidden away upstairs and are quite gaudy. A strange place. But I quite liked it.

An Oirish pub with no apparent connection to the Emerald Isle. The barman seemed interested that we were interested in the real ales, Greene King so nothing special but the beer was well kept. Lots of TV screens showing the football when I went and the pub was accordingly packed. There is a back room where the smokers are JUST outside an open door underneath an awning so barely legal, the smoke billows back into the room. If you want to hark back to the good old days of passive smoking and your clothes stinking of smoke, this is the place for you.

I too remember the very decent Carpenters Arms which was indeed really speacial for Marlow. Nothing wrong with OD's now, Landlords really friendly and ales always fine, but what the heck has this place got to do with Ireland? Even O'Neils is more autentic Irish and thats saying something..

I was rather saddened to see this had become an Irish pub (I thought that trend had died out) as I remember it as The Carpenters Arms when it was a cracking little boozer with Morrells Oxford Ales and then Greene King beer. I was told that "my crowd" probably now drink in The Cross Keys. Well as I don't live in Marlow and hadn't been to this pub for over 5 years they certainly weren't "my crowd" at all!! So I left - probably never to return thank you.
