Don't understand how this lovely traditional pub has so many negative reviews. It's just brilliant. Great local ale selection, beautiful country pub interior, and what I found exceptional was the amount of vegetarian options available. Often country pubs can be less than accommodating for vegetarians....More

Visited with friends, hoping for a local gem. Sadly let down- beautiful pub with lots of potential is a sad, lifeless place. No atmosphere, no music or life, no smiles and no fire - such a shame.

It is a few years since I have been here. My husband parked out the front and was told politely to use the back car park. The back entrance this time of year is messy and dangerous with damp leaves and so many steps. It...More

This pub is situated below the ridgeway path and has great views and ambience. It is a shame then that the food is decidedly average. Beer was Ok with Youngs Bitter on offer when I visited.

Visited midweek in the evening, v quiet, friendly bar man, varied menu, we ate an excellent lamb and thyme pie and lamb shank which was a little over cooked. Lots of real ales - tasty and flat! Will revisit

This unspoiled, traditional 16th century Free House is located at the foot of the Chilterns. Ideal for combining a beautiful scenic walk with refreshment. The original low oak beams and large open fire make it a frequent feature in Midsomer Murders and other TV series. There is a spacious garden and seating on the village green from where the steam train of the Chinnor/Prince Risborough private railway can be seen. The pub is CAMRA listed and has a good range of real ales often including Wadworth, Loddon, Tring and Burton Bridge, alongside ever changing local beers. The separate dining room is ideal for private functions.
