With its oak beams, rustic décor and roaring fire, this rural pub with rooms – pub up front, dining room in a converted 19th century barn to the rear – has proved an asset to this lovely Bucks village. In September 2019, though, it closed for a major revamp until we receive feedback on the new set-up we’ve removed ratings for the time being.

“A warm atmosphere with comfortable seating, elegant bar and roaring fires” means this classic, quality gastropub-with-rooms in rural north Bucks “ticks all the boxes” (it even has its own farm and butcher), and it inspires a lot of feedback. Even one or two reporters who suggest it is “not quite up to all the hype” still rate the cooking as good.

“Absolutely delicious food that’s worth every penny and staff who couldn’t be more helpful” inspire a string of glowing nominations for this “friendly and comfortable” gastropub – a lovely beamed building (still with a proper bar) in a cute Bucks village, where many of the ingredients come from the owner’s farm.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Stayed in the rooms across the road. Rooms ...
Reviewed 3 months,

"Stayed in the rooms across the road. Rooms spacious clean and comfortable. Ate in the pub garden. Good selection of choices. Some dishes over generous when less would have been more, eg mushroom arracinni. Lamb with Greek salad was great, but roast pork less so and the gravy way too salty! Service was for dry and efficient and garden provided a pleasant environment. The bed was fine but the breakfast was disappointing for the price, rather pushy for a couple of croissant and fruit and orange juice. A pot of fresh coffee would have much improved this. Granted it came in a hamper, but still was a let down. "
