Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband and i stayed at the lovely Heath Inn for 4 nights and used the restaurant every breakfast and evening meal as the food made by Chef Dev was absolutely amazing . Chef Dev went out of his way to present me with the...most delicious vegan meals that were not even on the menu. He came out to speak to me and asked me what my likes and dislikes are . Based on that I had the most delicious Indian cuisine I have ever had . Everyone was most kind and helpful . The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff were very welcoming . They are very dog friendly too . 10/10 and I am hard to please .More

We had a group of 11 in town for a family funeral. The food and service were incredible. I had the lamb pie which was too die for. We had various allergies in our group which were accommodated perfectly. Keep up the good work.

Another great meal at this hidden gem of a restaurant. It recently introduced Indian dishes to the menu, and you won’t get any better on the area. Really worth trying👍

We booked rooms for overnight as we were going to a party. Very pleased with all the rooms, even made sure my elderly mother had a room on the ground floor. Each room was clean and nicely decorated (each one was different).

Driving home from Milton Keynes to Leighton Buzzard on Saturday, we stopped at many eateries en route.All were full and we were sent on our way. When we stopped at The Heath the building was not inspiring, plastic flowers and tired paint. It was depressing...and empty. This did not bode well when everywhere else was so busy. How wrong could I be!! I felt a little reassured as at least staff were really friendly and attentive. The menu was small but offered a good choice. We ordered a sirloin steak each. OMG it was delicious. The accompanying sauces were not from a sachet. I had ordered garlic butter to avoid this, but my friend's peppercorn sauce was also made in house. I can thoroughly recommend this as a secret eatery. Yes the restaurant began to fill up later and I will definitely return. How welcome we were made and how lovely the food.More

Booked two rooms as we were travelling with friends and were made very welcome as soon as we arrived and booked in. Clean rooms with with en-suite. We booked two nights in the restaurant thinking we could cancel the second if the first night was...iffy. Excellent meal in very nice surroundings. We ate there for the second night and the chef adjusted the meal for our vegan friend. Excellent breakfast and also catered for vegan. 10-15 minutes from Bletchley Park couldn’t ask for anything more. Thanks to Trevor and all the staffMore

The food here is simply stunning, ive eaten here many times and it really is much better than anything in the area. Ditch the menu and go straight to the specials board is my advice, the beef madras and spicy goat are exceptional and my...daughter loved the bolognaise! Compliments to David the head chef who creates this excellent food! Just go, you won’t be disappointed!More

Reasonably priced evening meal, very well prepared and presented. A couple of pints at a cosy table and all was well. Breakfast was outstanding. Full English was cooked to order and was worth the wait. With a choice of fruit juices and filter coffee, it...all made for a great start to my Sunday.More

The pub had alot of character. The gentleman who showed us to the table was full of chrisma, polite and very attentive. He was continously on the go which was more to be said for one his colleagues. My friend had made the comment about...not layering up, when I'd only have to take all the layers off once we got to the table. When we got to the table, it was quite drafty, especially when people left the doors open... I know the restaurant can't really be held accountable for that. My friend ended shutting the door. One of the positives for me was that the rugby was on and we were in prime seats to watch it. The restaurant wasn't particularly full but it seemed ages to get our food- I don't know whether that was particularly because we were hungry and cold. We decided to wash our hands before the food came out, after our walk and the bathroom/hallway to the bathroom was freezing. The water was ice cold. Not really a pleasant experience. When the food came out, my friend ordered the vegan burger which she said was really nice. I ordered the pie which had a very impressive light, flakey lid. Unfortunately, the very top of the lid had come off but they still put it back on, which was nice. I found the gravy a little too salty which might be because I barely ever use salt with my cooking and the taste was only really noticeable towards the end. Easy mistake- at first when my pie came out I thought they had done something fancy with my mash potato (like hiding it in the pie), it turns out they just forgot to add it lol. We mentioned this to the other colleague and she came over and relayed the comment back to the guy who was doing various other bits. Apoligised and then sat back down at the bar... in her defense, it looked like she was heading home as she had her coat on the bar. So the guy went out to the kitchen and within a couple of minutes, they brought me out some mash. We were getting quite cold, so decided to pick pudding up on the way home instead and eating it somewhere warm. From what we could see they had a good selection of pudding. We asked for the bill which the guy said to us that he would just take some other people's plates out, which he did, along with some other bits. But then his other colleagues couldn't find any prosecco, he then went down to the seller and found some whilst his colleagues waited. I think the price was good to average for the area that we were in. I personally felt that they had one person running the pub with a chef. Whilst we were there, there was a guy who im guessing was staying in one of the rooms, who came down to complain who had waited an 1hr and 30 (apparently), since he ordered his food. For such a highly rated place, i had higher expectations than this. I feel that my rating should be 2.5/5- I personally wouldn't be in any kind of hurry to head back.More
