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.

We called in after a mid week walk and were pleased to hear that lunch is served until 3pm. There are two menus - one for sandwiches and the other with starters and main courses. ( There is also a dessert menu). The starter portion of haddock fish cake with wilted spinach and watercress sauce was delicious. Prices are reasonable... More

Visited here for an informal family pub lunch and from the minute we walked in felt welcome. This is a real traditional country pub, with tiled floors and eclectic furnishings, but with a real warm welcome from everyone and a simple menu of traditional, home-cooked food. It has a good range of beers at the bar too. There is a... More
