A “very pleasant country pub” helmed by Sally & Alvin Michaels for two decades, and whose “good food” of Anglo-French bent (including home-smoked fish and meat, and local game) “attracts diners from well beyond its area”; indeed, one reporter who took far-flung American visitors found that they “loved the location and quaintness” of this attractive Georgian locale – also handy for the Harry Potter experience at Warner Bros Studio nearby.

Emphatically “not your most ordinary pub” – this ivy-clad Georgian boozer in a “lovely countryside setting” has been well run by Sally & Alvin Michaels for twenty-odd years, and boasts a “good menu of delicious food”.

This “fantastic gastropub in the middle of nowhere” – if that’s possible in the thickly populated Chilterns, just a few miles from the M25 – was built 300 years ago, became a pub 190 years ago, and is approaching 20 years under the ownership of Sally & Alvin Michaels. The food – courtesy of chef Claude Paillet – is “always reliably good” and “full of flavour”. There are beams, log fires, ivy-clad walls and “plenty of outside seating” – not to mention the “lovely countryside”.

This ivy-clad gastropub, originally a trio of early-18th-century cottages, is popular among both locals and visitors to the nearby Warner Brothers studio for its “good-value pub grub”. Chef Claude Paillet trained under the legendary Pierre Gagnaire before switching his focus to heartier fare.
