A word from Annie Baileys
Contemporary restaurant in the heart of the Chilterns. Beautiful patio, ideal for those lazy Summer days with a glass of Rose and a plate of mussels. Very informal, relaxed style of service. Interesting and very competitively priced menus.

Annie Baileys reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Excellent Christmas lunch

    Dined on 13/12/2012
    Annie Bailey's is always an excellent choice for lunch or dinner. The staff are friendly (although disappointingly our waitress did say Thursday was her last shift), the food is good, the location convenient, in the summer the outside dining is lovely. Don't let the threat of HS2 put you off this excellent restaurant

    We have enjoyed lunch here on several occasions but this time our party of four were the only people there apart from two others. Whether it was the cold weather I don't know but the place was warm and everything very satisfactory and they deserve to be busier.

    Service was good, but the menu was uninspired and food lacked a certain sparkle. Prices are good, so no quibble there. Generally, it was OK. To find a positive, the large group also in the restaurant seemed to have a good time, and so would recommend for that.

    Very enjoyable lunch. Food well presented and cooked well. Criticisms are service was vague - asked for samphire but didn't get it. Asked for dessert menu twice. No hot desserts - don't want sorbet on a cold and dreary day. Could have been warmer in restaurant.

    We were at Annie Bailey's on the 2nd day of its new lunch menu, and the food was fantastic. There were about 4 options under each of the starters and main courses. We both had the seafood risotto, which was very creamy and chock full of mixed seafood. We were pleasantly surprised by the high quality of the food and will certainly be coming back!

    Pleasant surroundings, and good service from cheerful waitress.However, the food was disappointing for the price.My sirloin steak was on the tough side, although flavour nice. 2 of us had the special -again flavour nice but presentation lacking- resembled school dinner, swimming in gravy.One of us is a veggie, and there was ample choice. I found the menu disappointing:2 burger dishes, steak and fish/chips out of around 8 or so dishes. I looked at menu before booking, and have just checked it again, and on line it does look more varied and inviting. The meal for the four of us cost around £140, including a bottle of wine at just under £20, 4 starters, 4 mains and 2 desserts and coffee, excluding service.

    The restaurant wasn't very busy, which was surprising for a Saturday night as the food was excellent - really tasty and very well presented. The restaurant has a nice feel to it and not excessively expensive (between £25 and £30 per head for a three course meal with wine). Would definitely eat there again. Have also eaten lunch there, which again was delicious.

    Dined on 24/8/2012
    We went to Annie Bailey's on Friday to celebrate our Daughters exam results. Couldn't really understand why this great little pub is so quiet. Perhaps they should advertise their great £20.00 fish and Chip meal for two with drinks or their Steak night specials on Wednesday more widely? The menu is a little over priced, especially the puddings but we couldn't fit one in anyway after our lovely Rib Eye steaks and home made burgers. My advice would be to give it a try!

  • Booked on-line for a supper

    Dined on 10/8/2012
    Booked on-line for a supper a-deux. The restaurant was empty but we were greeted warmly. We ordered a half bottle of champagne which the waitress poured into two glasses brim-full. We could sit outside for a while and sip it while we looked at the menu. Nothing special but the food was good and plentiful. From being a faintly pretentious and expensive restaurant it is now unpretentious and more reasonable, but verging on the scruffy. It looked better as more diners arrived. We'd go again but for basic food well cooked and wine at reasonable prices, not a special occasion. Really what the area needs.

    Great atmosphere and location - fantastic when the weather is good to sit outside and dream of being in Europe due to the stylised courtyard and murals. Great food, choice and prices are acceptable.

    Dined on 28/7/2012
    We ate here on Saturday night, a table of 4 for my birthday. The restaurant used to have a magnificent reputation and I had been meaning to eat here for a few years. It was, frankly a little dissapointing, not because of the actual food or service, both were fine but because it is not actually a quality restaurant, it is at best a bistro pub with food to match. Very limited menu and poor wine list, nil atmosphere, it was very, very quiet, maybe 4 tables in use, on a Saturday night! Scruffy stained and creased menu cards, my cutlery was dirty, and had to be changed. One lady serving tables, minding the bar , cleaning up etc, probably did not need more as it was so quiet.. She was however absolutely charming, and Very friendly and helpful.

    I had been to Annie Baileys in the past at another location and had a very pleasant meal in nice surroundings; however, this was a different experience. While the service and food quality was good, the ambience of the dining room was poor. The decoration looked very 'tired', the menu card I was given was stained, the tables felt sticky and the table lights were not alight. There was only one member of staff looking after front of house and waiting at tables; the young lady coped well but did not have enough time or capacity to pay attention to detail.

    My boyfriend and I came to AB regular for romantic dinners and great evening meals. It was somewhere that felt great from when you arrived to leaving. When we arrived 7th July 12 it felt different like empty, no ambience or romance. We had booked a table for 2 but was told we could choose any table but not one for 4 people as they we for possible customers, after 3 other couples were told the same a couple came in and sat a table for 4 althought only 2, that kinda miffed us as the restuarant was not busy at all. The menu had changed and not alot on it compared to before. The specials board was half full, we thought it had not been finished. The food was ok but im afraid sadly that will be our last visit to Annie Baileys. :(

    Dined on 17/6/2012
    The roast beef had all the trimmings, but my son prefers his meat a little rarer. My husband had steak cooked to his taste. Other son had stuffed pork loin which he enjoyed. I had the fish, which being a snapper was as bony as expected, but cooked to perfection so the bones were easily removed. It did lack any carbohydrates. I try not to fill myself on the delicious bread they supply free before your meal at Annie Baileys, but I think I should have saved some to go with the fish. Fortunately pork loin son didn't want all his cous cous, so I had some of that. Possibly some diners like the 'carb free' options, but I think waiters should point out at the time of ordering when a meal has an essential element missing!

    Having been to this pub restaurant once before and enjoyed it, we decided to go there for a birthday meal. Sadly we were extremely disappointed by the meal and the whole experience on this occasion. Mediocre food, friendly but inadequate service, and no atmosphere whatsoever. Will not go there again.

    It was cold and wet when we went to Annie Baileys for lunch. The welcome was warm and we were seated close to the open fire. As we warmed up we were shown the specials on the blackboard and were handed the full menu. We both enjoyed our meals, the ambiance and the very good service. We will certainly eat here again.

    We attended on a midweek lunchtime, the lunch set menu was good value at £11.95 for two courses. The food was presented well and very nice but the atmosphere was dead, we were the only two in the whole place and even though the waitress was good it just didn't work for us. We might try again on an evening to see if it is any better.

    We always visit Annie Baileys when we come to a local Craft Fair and have always enjoyed our meals here. It has beautiful views of the countryside, it has a mouthwatering menu, and the set menu has excellent choices too and is very good value - you must try chef's home made soups! The atmosphere and decor are relaxing and the staff are friendly and helpful. There is also al-fresco dining for sunny weather in the Tuscany-style patio. You don't have to go abroad to feel you are on holiday.

The restaurant was quite quiet probably due to the snow - just needed a few more people to bring it to life! Definitely recommend for that difficult 'middle ground' - great food, well priced without any fuss.

    Have heard so many good tales about Annie Baileys over the years so was disappointed to find a somewhat tired pub with a lacklustre menu. Waited 15 minutes to get specials board. Tagliatelle with mixed mushrooms was gorgeous but boy what an insultingly small portion! Rib eye steak chewy but good flavour. Pub wasn't busy but one and only waitress seemed to struggle to be attentive although cheery & helpful.

    A late decisionto go out for dinner at New Year meant we were lucky to get in and it turned out to be a nice surprise. Set menu which wasn't mentioned on booking but luckily there was something my girlfriend would eat - but it had sold out so the vegetarian option had to do. Friendly, welcoming staff but totally overrun. Food was good. Lovely bream on lobster ravioli and an excellent dessert platter. Disppointed not to be offered bread in lieu of acceptable starter so full price felt expensive.
