“A charming old converted Chilterns pub” with a “tremendous garden”, “very cosy upstairs” and “buzzy” downstairs; “the owners know what they’re doing and serve diverse but unfussy food cooked with assurance time after time”.

In a lovely rustic setting, a “properly posh gastropub” (“the Chilterns set were turning up in droves”) with a “nice garden” and “always cheerful service” (plus cooking that’s “a cut above”). The “very cosy” upstairs may be preferred to the “buzzy” downstairs.
