An airy, contemporary pub with traditional flourishes, ideal for trippers heading for the nearby Chilterns. Birdwatchers seeking red kites can stop by before or after hitting the hills, whilst cricketers inspecting the wicket on the adjacent village green pitch can call from mid-morning onwards. Not content with two restaurant areas and a bustling bar to run, the owners also host a village shop here. Beers from local microbreweries hit the spot, whilst timeless pub grub meals like sausage and mash fill the gap. Summer barbecues are popular, and there’s a mini beer festival every Easter.
