They have returned some character to the pub very well and the menu is small but everything is home made and of a high quality, service was good even though it was rammed.Our roastie was delicious and portions were huge, I couldn't finish it! Still had room... More

I came in last night with my partner and just had to remark on the wonderful service we received. I ordered the sirloin steak which was cooked to perfection and my husband had the lamb rump that we both really enjoyed. However the real stars of tonight were the staff members serving us, Natalie(think she was the one in charge)... More

Staff here are very friendly with a personalised check in service, and the morning breakfast is very lovely. My room was well appointed with a comfortable bed and the shower had excellent water pressure. Only downside is the locale's proximity to the road - could be noisy in summertime if you need the windows open.

Thank you for taking the time to comment and for your kind words. We will be looking at ways of managing the noise as I agree the road is busy so it is important for us to find a solution. Yours sincerely Alfie More

Stayed here for 3 nights recently and we were returning having discovered this gem a few months earlier. Our first visit coincided with a new owner taking over and although it was early days it was obvious that they knew what they were doing and that this place could only get better.

THank you for your kind words which the whole team really appreciate. Yes there is still a great deal to be done and focus on the rooms is a priority now as we started with the pub. Having nice guests staying with us also makes our work worthwhile so thank you for "Cheering Us On" and for your kind comments.... More

Really nice pub a short distance from Amersham towards the chalfonts. Great range of drinks. Really nice food and a nice garden. The only downside is that the pub is next to quite a busy road which can detract from the country feel. Would recommend though. You won't regret it!

We stayed overnight en route to Gatwick for our usual January getaway. I booked it online with minimal fuss using their website, despite being just a couple of days away from staying. Simple enough and we checked in with no bother whatsoever. Our room was warm, comfortable and very pleasant indeed. My 2 Sons (who live nearby) came and had... More

My partner and our dog love nothing better than a long walk and a country pub. For 6 consecutive weeks we have been served by the Ivy house the best roast ( and we are experts) we have had in a long time and would rate the beef five stars.

Reviewed previously on the other entry for this place. If you like roast beef for Sunday lunch then you must go here. First time was medium, second time a bit well done so we asked for medium the third time and was done stonkingly well. Will be back :) Fabulous attentive but not in your face service.
