Friendly little pub, welcoming staff. We ate tasty home-made beef and ale pie with half a pint of local ale. The pie had a decent amount of beef in it which is unusual! Nice coffee afterwards too. A brilliant place to call in for refreshments after a long walk. Dogs welcome.

We went for Sunday lunch, and booked ahead which apparently was necessary. Car park looked just about big enough if the place was busy. Inside there is a bar area and large separate area for dining. Staff OK. Five types of cask beer on offer, good. The ones we were served (brought to our table) were all 'flat' without any... More

Our regular refreshment stop on walks from Ashridge and ivinghoe Beacon. A traditional pub with warm fires, mixed furniture and great atmosphere. Early arrival at lunchtime is recommended due to its popularity unless you are happy eating and drinking outside. There is a good range of food for all tastes including vegetarian at competitive prices. The local real ales are... More

Out for a walk in Ashridge with my Spaniel and made a short detour, down the scarp-slope by an easy footpath from the Monument to the Valiant Trooper, because of the review here and their super informative web-site. Wanted a dog-friendly bar-lunch. To find a "specials-board" with at least half-dozen interesting items available on quiet weekday lunchtime was a nice... More

Nice Sunday afternoon lunch; decent choices of un-pretentious sounding meals which were served with good quantity of vegetables. Choices of ciders were great too.

I have visited this pub a few times now and I can safely say that the food is average at best. The service however, particularly from one waitress, is just awful. She is consistently blunt, unprofessional,cold and unfriendly. The manager/barman isn't really any better. I'll be sticking to The Greyhound in future.

Having read the other reviews thought I'd give it a go. Sounds okay. It was a quiet Thursday night so we had the restaurant to ourselves (although we could have had the same menu in the busier bar). Nice ale but I'd imagine it would be better to be a cider drinker here. Food was good, I had the home... More

We have been visiting the Valiant Trooper on and off for several years as it is in a good location during a walk or just a few minutes drive away. I have to say that on reflection, we have mostly had average to rude service. Last weekend, I was a few minutes after lunchtime food stopped being served. I when... More

This pub has the feel of both a village pub and a lovely restaurant, as there is a bar as well as a separate dining area.The beer garden is perfect for the summer sun. We've been a couple of times for lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed with the food.
