The Polecat Inn

170 Wycombe Road, Prestwood, GREAT MISSENDEN, HP16 0HJ

This 17th-century Chiltern Hills free house has a timeless quality: flower baskets adorn the exterior, while inside, the small, low-beamed rooms radiating from the bar offer a choice of dining and drinking options. From the village's own Malt The Brewery, which you can visit, comes Prestwood's Best; 30 wines are sold by the glass. Dishes are prepared from local ingredients, including herbs from the huge garden. If you enjoy beef Wellington or magret of duck, you could be in luck; ditto Cumberland sausage; or baked salmon with celeriac dauphinoise, sun-blushed tomatoes and gruyère cheese. Home-made venison and wild rabbit pie, blackboard specials, baguettes and filled jacket potatoes add further choices. Children are well catered for, too. Check with the inn for their summer beer festival dates.
