Top 10 famous pub landlords

Tom Kerridge

TV chef Tom Kerridge became a household name when his Marlow pub, The Hand and Flowers, was the first in the UK to scoop two Michelin stars. Opening in 2005, Kerridge has championed his signature style of bold cooking with high quality seasonal ingredients ever since.

The pub also boasts 11 rooms within its Flower Cottage complex equipped with huge beds, giant baths and ‘rain’ showers.

Currently headlining on the à la carte menu are dish like glazed smoked haddock and Parmsean omellete; lovage soup with Bramley apple, smoked eel and cheese tortellini; pork belly with black pudding and gherkin ketchup; and milk toffee tart with grapefruit sorbet.

In addition to The Hand and Flowers, Kerridge also owns The Coach in Marlow, which has a star and serves a wonderfully decadent chicken Kiev with cauliflower cheese, and a twist on a mushroom risotto inspired by French chef Claude Bosi. He also finds the time to run Kerridge’s Bar & Grill at The Corinthia hotel in London, which opened last year to rave reviews.
