Double-fronted dining pub in quiet village with interesting furnishings, log fires, fine choice of drinks and large garden
Good Pub Guide Recommended
In a quiet and lovely village, this is a handsome, Georgian pub that cleverly manages to appeal to both diners and drinkers. The stylishly furnished bars have a nice mix of antique and old-fashioned chairs and solid tables, rich heavily draped curtains, log fires, newspapers and fresh flowers. Friendly staff serve Rebellion IPA and a guest such as Caledonian Flying Scotsman on handpump, over 20 wines by the glass (plus pudding wines) and a good choice of vodkas and liqueurs; background music. In warm weather, the extensive back garden is a big draw (it's also floodlit at night) and there are seats and tables on a sheltered terrace, with more on a spacious lawn. It can get busy at weekends, when parking may be tricky. The wisteria is lovely in May.

What They Say
Located in the picture perfect village of Denham...
Our delightful dining room and bar area is inviting and cosy, especially with the log fire roaring in those chillier months. For those sunnier, warmer days, our beautiful, large garden and secluded terrace area are pretty much perfect.
Everything on our menus is freshly made in our kitchen and changes in line with the seasons. We always use the best local produce that we can get our hands on.
From our well stocked bar, we serve a selection of great real ales and lagers, IPA being our local rebellion ale, alongside a good range of soft drinks and organic juices. Our wine list is carefully sourced and features boutique wineries – producing an exciting and individual list, with many wines served by the glass.
