“Worth the drive out” – Chris & Amanda Lillitou’s “quintessential English country pub” has a super-cute village location in the lush Chilterns countryside surrounding Beaconsfield. The cuisine is down-to-earth, but it comes with the spin one might expect from Amanda’s Tante-Claire training: the soup might be Jerusalem artichoke; the fish ’n’ chips may incorporate Newlyn hake and battered cod’s cheek; and a typical pie would feature game with a suet crust.

“A jolly place to eat...” – this “very traditional village pub” in the Chilterns has “some of the usual pub grub and so much more”, including a selection of “really sophisticated and delicious dishes”. Landlord Chris Lillitou, a local who played cricket for Seer Green in his youth, took the pub over with his wife Amanda 10 years ago.
