We stayed here as visiting Waddesdon Manor closeby. Our room was at the front which was noisy due to the constant stream of traffic. We could not get into our accommodation until the afternoon staff came on so were waiting around for an hour.

Excellent deal! 2 8oz rumps and a bottle of wine for 30! the steak was very well cooked, the staff were attentive and were flexible with us - we arrived 45 min early and our table was ready for us to sit and have ad rink at before the rest of our party arrived. Really good local atmosphere

Went here with 8 adults and 4 children and had a really lovely Sunday lunch. We all had the carvery and was very tasty with a good selection of vegetables. The Yorkshire puddings were massive, and tasted as good as they looked. Very child friendly and the staff were very attentive.

I attended a friends birthday here and found it to be a lovely pub. There was party food which consisted of pork, stuffing, rolls, salad etc all of which were lovely. A lovely pub with friendly staff. I especially like the photos in the toilet ;)

A big fan of this pub. It's family run, and they are always very friendly and accommodating. It's reasonably priced, good beer, good food, lots of deals (fish days and steak nights etc). It's a charming old building in a lovely village and great on a summers day! Go visit!

Four of us went for Sunday lunch. I had the roast beef which was first class. My husband had steak which wasn't the best through no fault of the chef and it was put right without any argument. The staff were attentive and polite would definitely go again.
