We dropped in for lunch after finding the Grouse & Ale on Trip Adviser. The room was pleasant, in a country pub way and the service and muzak were fine. The menu offered lots of interesting choices, but given it was lunch we settled on two salads and a small glass of wine each. I'd have liked to try something... More

We went for lunch in the Grouse and Ale with my wife and baby daughter and the food was really tasty and the service amazing. You can get all the classic pub dishes as well as some more elaborated plates for a reasonnable price. They also were very accomodating with a young baby.

Visited as a party of 7 (3 of which were under 6). Great service, extremely polite and attentive. Excellent standard of food, a lot of choices and everything seemed freshly cooked and prepared. Despite being very busy we weren't rushed to leave when finished. Upper mid-range for the price, but no-one was unhappy with the cost.

We ended up in the Grouse and Ale by chance as we were looking for dinner in the area on a Monday night. We were very pleased to have been so lucky. The decor is beautiful, the food was great and the service excellent. We would definitely recommend it.

I work away all week in local High Wycombe and am always looking for somewhere interesting to eat in the evening. I found this pub on Trip Advisor and couldn't believe the car park was packed on a Wednesday evening around 7.30pm. I managed to park and was met by the manager who was rushing around. I offered to eat... More

We visited as it was my partner's mum's birthday. We were greeted with a warm welcome. The waiter had a nice charm about him but was not over bearing. We made small talk as he seated us at a table. The choice on the menu is varied to suit all tastes and the price is good value for the quality... More

Description
With the relaxed ambiance of an English country pub, an elegant menu made from local produce and plenty of room to breathe (and park) the Grouse & Ale is the perfect venue for a social occasion or an informal meeting/function that needs more than just biscuits and coffee.The entire bar and restaurant is WIFI and there are plenty of niches to relax in with open fires to banish any winter chills, come the summer, take your drinks outside into our secluded courtyard.We hope that you will feel able to relax in comfortable surroundings, secure in the knowledge that the service, drinks and food will be perfect – whatever the occasion; Sunday lunch, a romantic dinner or a business session.Gastro Pub of the Year - 2010Quite simply, we’re very proud of our food. Our approach to designing the menu, reflects our ethos – do the simplest things brilliantly well. Our daily specials reflect a table d’hôte offering to supplement the a la carte menu along with an extensive, informal menu at the bar. Wherever possible, our menus are created from locally sourced produce and meats.
