Ambitious modern cooking in a Tudor village inn

AA Inspector

At a glance

Open all year
Wines by the glass
Wheelchair access

With its timeless rustic cosiness - beams, bare brick-walls, Chesterfield sofas and a walk-in inglenook - the timbered Tudor Red Lion's bar is a great spot for classic pub grub, but seekers of contemporary British cuisine head for the airy, oak-raftered restaurant, where there's an eclectic carte pitched just right for the kitchen's ambitions. Pan-seared scallops open the show, together with truffle cornflower purée, poached radish and crispy mushrooms, while mains could bring slow-braised Denham Estate venison with dauphinoise potato, sautéed cavolo nero and black cherry jus. For balmy-day dining, there's a walled garden, where a dovecote and the village church clock tower add to the quintessentially English mood.
