Looking for a pub meal to escape from London? Head to this atmospheric and tastefully renovated Georgian gastropub, just off J1 of the M40, in the cutest of cute Home Counties villages (complete with small outside terrace garden in summer). The straightforward food is not aiming to ‘push the envelope’ but it’s dependably well-realised. Top Tip – grab any parking space you can find: finding a spot a nightmare.

Possibly the first genuine country pub off the A/M40 as you leave London, this Georgian coaching inn-turned-smart-village-gastroboozer is an understandable “favourite” for numerous reporters – “popular and crowded”, with some “delicious” food and “especially lovely when sitting outside”.

“Very easy to get to from London, and nice to walk around the pretty village afterwards” – no wonder this gastroboozer (near the A40/M25 intersection), equipped with a pleasant garden, is so “popular and crowded” (“especially for Sunday lunch”); this year there were particular bouquets for the “delicious soufflés both savoury and sweet”.

“Popular, welcoming and atmospheric” gastroboozer whose “imaginative dishes” are “a cut or two above the usual pub food”; “a very enjoyable destination for Sunday lunch, with a large garden for summer days, and a beautiful village to explore, even though it’s so close to London” (near the A40/M25 junction).
