Good menu and food. Above average prices but not too high. Gluten free options given. Would visit again but infrequently. Staff ok. Probably visit twice a year but not a go to destination. Definitely needs more work to get me back more often. Good start by the new owners though.

This little gem appears to have been teetering on the edge for quite some time. I am so pleased that it is back from the brink with a vengeance. The staff bent over backwards to make our visit very enjoyable. The food was superb but not fussy or overpriced. A lovely country pub retaining all its original charm.

Had an early dinner/late lunch in Saturday afternoon. We were the only ones there and had 5 small children with us. The staff was absolutely brilliant. So patient with the children and really attentive. The wine was great and the food brilliant. Highly highly recommended.

Last night my family and I took advantage of the Christmas menu becoming available this week. It was simply superb! All five of us left clean plates for each course that was eaten, and for some of them that's quite unusual. A must try whilst it's around is the Christmas Pie - I am already planning on returning for another... More

We came for a group meal on a Saturday a couple of weeks ago - we booked last minute for a group of 9, the staff were very accommodating and made sure there were also provisions for my 17 month old niece, which stopped her from getting too tetchy! The menu was lovely and varied, the food itself was even... More

A group of us used to frequent TBH thirty years ago when we lived in Chesham. We've moved a few miles away, and the other couples in our group even further, so we've not been there in ages. The gang was back together in the area this weekend so we decided to go back! We knew TBH was under new... More

Simple honest pub grub,but nothing wrong with that. The place is busy at Sunday lunchtimes, but the staff are pleasant and accommodating. They serve a delightful Onion Veggie roast lunch,which my wife encouraged me to return and try. I did,thumbs up on that one. Not many pubs serve a veggie roast of any kind,so a bonus for us. They are... More

Arrived before opening and did a big walk around the neighbouring countryside. Arrived about an hour after opening ready for a large Sunday roast to find that there were no tables. I would recommend booking in advance. Sat and had a drink to recover from the walk and tried to think where else to try instead. After seeing the food... More

Had Sunday lunch here with family and enjoyed our meal. Staff are very friendly and polite. I ordered the beef which on the menu described itself as served red, however mine and my partners were very overdone. Good size portions, shame the meat wasn't cooked as described. Experience was good though and would come again. My cousin was disappointed as... More
