Quite possibly the worst food I have ever had and I was hungover which is really saying something. Nice people behind the bar but the food is just really, really bad, inedible and most of the meal was left on it's plate.

This pub is situated in a quiet rural area just a few yards from the Phonix Trail which is a cycle path running from Princes Risborough to Thame. It is a good stop for lunch and the menu has something to satisfy most hungry cyclists.

I work here and can confirm that dogs are allowed in the bar area on a lead. Here you can have food and drinks. We also supply water bowls for our four legged friends.
