“Good food at a fair price” was reported again this year at this well-regarded pub: part of a local group with siblings in Gerrards Cross and Beaconsfield. In good weather you can eat on the terrace, or book an ‘Oak Pod’ which seats up to 6 people, and incorporate a heater.

Feedback has typically been a little up and down on this well-established restaurant and there are still those who feel it's “not as good as it was”, but there are also those who describe its “pub classics” as “thoughtful and creative.” A “lovely garden” is not in doubt.

“Imaginative combinations and good service” have earned a “well-deserved” reputation over a dozen years for what is “more a restaurant with a bar than the other way round”. This was not a vintage year for feedback, however, with some reporters feeling its performance “only just scraped by”.

For 32 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).
