If you are looking for a traditional country pub this is it. It is on a small road outside a village or town which makes it more charming. The beer and real ales are good as is the food menu. The stall and proprietors are very friendly as are the customers which are mainly locals.

A tasty Sunday roast and decent portions. The staff were a bit pressed but accommodating. Make sure you book - very popular.

Enjoyable meal in a comfortable environment. Home cooked food, with a range of specials including steak, lamb, fish dishes- and 'Day deals' such as steak night and fish and chip night. Good home made burger, ok cod with vegetables. Pleasant if slightly disorganised service. Good solid pub, if a little bit old fashioned.

Good beer, usually Doom Bar and a guest or two, and reliable pub food. Fish and chips is fantastic, really fresh fish, and huge Sunday roasts (worth booking). Great village pub in a lovely setting, nice outdoor seating.

We live in Princes Risborough and regularly walk up in the Chilterns around the town. Whiteleaf is a convenient stop off on the way back home and it is a treat to stop off at the Red Lion for a drink or some of their great food. This is a traditional pub with very well kept beers and a good... More

We visited the Red Lion after a walk at Whiteleaf Cross with our puppy. The atmosphere is lovely and it's welcoming and friendly. Yes it's a small village pub but it's perfectly formed. There is a large separate restaurant area but I liked it in the pub. Our puppy was welcomed and was fussed over but mostly he was allowed... More

To be honest, this wasn't the pub I thought I was going to. Took my Mum for a birthday dinner last week. It was a bit problematic booking the meal, left E-mails and messages on the answerphone, but eventually someone picked up. The food was good, slightly posher than basic pub grub. Partner had whitebait and pulled pork in a... More

Amazing steak - melts in your mouth. Lovely staff and cosy feeling. Our dog was made very welcome too. Good size function room which has been redecorated recently. All in all a perfect little local.
