AA Pick of the Pubs
Beer festival
Open all year
Dog friendly
Free Wi-Fi

Really, really tucked away in The Chiltern Hills, this claims to be the oldest free house in England. It all started with the West Saxons, who brewed ale on this site using water from an old Romano-British well that remains in what is now the garden till this day. Ancient blackened timbers, flagstone floors, leaded windows, battle standards, armour and dried hops greet your entry to an interior warmed in winter by log-burners and an inglenook. Chiltern Ale and Windsor & Eton's Conqueror share bar space with farm ciders and a Herefordshire perry. Hearty food includes rib-eye steak, grilled tomato, mushrooms and chips; Welsh lamb shoulder, sauté potatoes and cabbage; and fish pie made with salmon, cod, smoked haddock and prawns. Specials, including local game, appear on a blackboard. Desserts follow a traditionalist path too, with Bramley apple crumble and custard; and Eton Mess. There’s a Summer Bank Holiday beer and cider festival.
