Originally three flint cottages, the 400-year-old Cherry Tree’s interior has strong colours and modern, comfortable furnishings that look good alongside the original flagstone floors, beamed ceilings and fireplaces. Brakspear’s Bitter and Special and seasonal ales are on handpump in the bar, where there is also a good range of malt whiskies, chilled vodkas and wines by the glass. An eat-anywhere policy means freedom to enjoy any of the British and European dishes in the bar, restaurant or large garden. Local produce is used throughout the menu, with items such as lobster, oysters and game available in season. Why not start with crayfish cocktail, followed by roast rump of lamb and finish with lemon tart and raspberry sorbet. Chalkboards offer daily specials, sandwiches are available at lunchtime and Sunday roasts feature Scottish prime beef. Children may eat in the dining rooms until 8pm and have their own menu. The large south-facing garden makes fine-weather dining a pleasure. All around is the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
