The Valiant Trooper pub was a real surprise package it's a very traditional pub so it's not a flash designer interior but it had friendly staff, all the food is home made. There were walkers and cyclists in there who had been enjoying the outdoors and dropped in for a pit-stop to refuel on local beer and a hearty Sunday... More

We have eaten here several times in the past and though a little expensive for a pub the food in the past has always been excellent. I don't know if they have had a change of staff or supplier but out meal was really disappointing. I ordered leg of lamb steak served with a jus, clearly this was not a... More

The Valient Trooper has everything you want from a quintessential British village pub. The historic building in the middle of the quaint English countryside transports you back to a time when we all had time to visit, relax and enjoy our surroundings and our neighbors. The staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming. The chef is outstanding. The menu changes frequently,... More

Popped in here for Sunday Lunch after having a few average at best pub lunches in the Tring area. First impressions were oh no here we go again. Inside the restuarant was deserted. Service was stop start. Few raised eyebrows about the kids chasing round after a friendly dog. It took a while, slightly too long given the place was... More

I have been going to this pub/ restaurant for years. The last time was a few months ago when the food was very good unfortunately this was not to be on this occasion. We ate in the restaurant which was empty at 8pm! I had a mediocre vegetable soup followed by an overcooked stodgy risotto with haddock and a fairly... More

Terrible service, abysmal food, poor effort all round. We came across this pub while on a country walk one afternoon and unfortunately it turned out to be a terrible decision. Rather than be greeted with a warm and accommodating welcome, none of the busy but inefficient staff gave us any attention and asked whether we would like to dine or... More

Cannot fault the valiant trooper in any way. Charming, friendly, and attentive staff. Superb efficient service. Good food especially the fish and chips! I have now been on a number of occasions and have always had a great time. Well done to all. Keep up the great work!

A friend and I called for a pub lunch in February 2013. The 'hand cut' chips cost £3 and were OK, but served in a cold bowl and were themselves cold within minutes. My sandwich was OK. Two halves of beer were excellent. The man who appeared to be in charge snatched our empty glasses from the table as he... More
