After a beautiful country walk this pub is perfect for a cold beer and a meal. Very welcoming staff and locals that make you feel at home. Dog friendly too! Food and drink is fairly priced and the food is always very good. Definitely worth a visit.

This gem of a pub is tucked away in the leafy village of Whiteleaf. The food is extremely good and well presented. The staff are very welcoming and always make you feel welcome. The atmosphere is snug and in winter there is an open fire. I have eaten here several times on different days of the week and times of... More

Entrance to accomodation was through narrow door behind bar or round the back past kitchen area, in scruffy back door. Beds were old but comfy, clean bedding however the bathroom was not nice and shower useless, would have loved a cup of tea in the morning but inside of kettle was minging, to top it off £70 bill which was...

Never been before, had to go to Princes Risborough so told the wife we would go for a pub lunch at whichever pub had the best tripadvisor rating....and this was it. Firstly if you are driving from the direction we came in you turn in to the road and could think " there is no way there is a pub... More

Four of us dined here on a wet Friday lunchtime. Menu is basic, I would say a little stuck in the '80s (chilli, lasagne, ham egg and chips), but they also have wraps. Everything was well cooked and tasty and very reasonably priced. Staff are friendly. A good place to come to for a filling lunch after walking in this... More

Found this on trip advisor as needed somewhere close to princes risborough to eat a good meal. Deserves it's high rating. Very welcoming country pub. Food excellent. On first look menu seems limited but it really isn't. Apparently the roast dinner option on a Sunday is popular and we will definitely be visiting again to try that. The outside seating... More

Just revisited the Red Lion, and could not have experienced a better rib eye steak, the pub now offers two rib eye steak meals and a bottle of house wine for £30 on Tuesdays. My steak was cooked exactly how i like it, the bar staff were both attentive and polite, as always, another recommendation on Fridays is the excellent... More

We visited on a weekday evening and enjoyed a very good meal , attractively presented and piping hot. The pub is always warm and pleasant with a log fire burning in the Winter. Everyone is friendly here, staff and customers, and people come back time after time. It should be rated No 1 on the Risborough restaurants list.
