Very disappointing pub. Poor beer quality & poor service. Had retro rail ale by greenfields which tasted like vinegar. Large range of beers so beer tickers paradise, but this means nothing if poorly kept & served without customer in mind. Better pubs in area like royal standard, wooburn common or jolly woodman in littleworth common. Would not recommend to fellow CAMRA members or anyone else who cares for ale or even good service
Visited on a Wednesday lunchtime in November 2011. For me, this is just about the perfect pub. It’s located just outside the small village of Hedgerley in a country lane where there are numerous walks nearby. In fact, we had just been walking in Burnham Beeches which is about 10 minutes away by car. When you walk into the pub it feels cosy and welcoming as was the young barman who was also very polite (not many pubs do you get called ‘sir’). The Rebellion IPA was in excellent condition and there were many other cask beers on offer from behind the bar. The cold food is displayed in a cabinet in the Saloon Bar and was so appealing that we struggled to decide what to order from homemade venison pie, quiches, salmon en croute (stuffed with ginger and sultana), smoked salmon, sandwiches (including some lovely looking beef) and many more. About five hot dishes were on offer including pumpkin soup and their famous steak and mushroom pie which was delicious. None of the food was expensive especially give the quality of the ingredients and cooking with the sandwiches around £4 to £5, steak and mushroom pie about £8 and the salmon with ginger and sultana roulade a similar price. Food is only served at lunchtimes until 2.30pm. Well deserving of it’s Main Entry in the Guide.
