Situated in a prime position in the Chilterns and yet within easy reach of London and the M40, The Pink is at heart a proper country pub. Proud to serve the best that the locality has to offer - both in food and beer, menus showcase seasonal local produce whilst also embracing pub classics. A pub for all seasons with roaring open fires in the winter and an extensive garden and children’s play area in the summer as well as a heated outdoor dining area and dining ‘pods’, The Pink caters for all - casual drinkers, walkers in search of a sandwich and those looking for a delicious dinner or a leisurely lunch. With a selection of real ales on tap, a fantastic wine list, an extensive range of lagers and ciders, not to mention being a haven for the gin and whisky lover, The Pink always provides a warm welcome and friendly service. Muddy boots, muddy kids and muddy dogs welcome!

The service was non existent in reality . The experience is so intermittent there as it can be so good which is why we try and give it a go ! It looked like they had run out of beef as there were two small bits of meat hidden beneath 4 huge potatoes. The green veg was late. The drinks we requested arrived after we had finished dining ! ( "Sorry I put the order in the system !" ) I am really sad to report this. The only way is up !

Wednesday night (7th Feb) was really cold outside but it was lovely and warm inside. It was very quiet.
The food was reasonable but I thought a little on the pricey side for what it actually was.
Considering the menu was only half a dozen mains and it was so quiet, I expected more.
I was surprised at how little choice there was. When I checked online the following day, the "Sample Menu" was considerably larger than the actual menu.
Staff were welcoming and friendly but I don't recall them checking if we'd been before. Had they done so then perhaps they would have explained why such little choice - but to be fair, we could have asked as well.
I may well return but not before I try other similar venues.
It wasn't by any means a bad experience but I left disappointed.

Despite the food being nice, this isn't the place to go for dinner on a Saturday night. Waited a long time for food without hearing anything, although it materialised fairly promptly after questioning. Staff became less and less interested in serving as the meal went on and were more interested in having their own food and texting behind the bar. Quite a different experience to our previous visit when we had a lovely Sunday roast and the service was good.

On a freezing cold day with the pub half empty we had to wait 45 mins for a couple of soups! No-one offered us a choice of breads for the sandwich we ordered: white was just dished up. Just when we were deciding whether to stay for a dessert, the waiter brought the bill. Unasked. So we took the hint. And we won't be going back. Very disappointing.

Very nice Sunday lunch. Staff were a bit overloaded, so service was a bit slow.

Service was excellent, waitresses were very attentive and food was very good but it was very cold in The Snug (& the rest of the bar area or we would have asked to be moved). The fire in The Snug was not lit and the fire in the bar area kept going out! Other customers were obviously feeling the cold too. We were well wrapped up but still felt very chilly. My feet were frozen (with socks and boots!). The cold unwelcoming temperature spoilt our halfway meet up with friends.

We made a late booking for a special family birthday lunch on the Sunday before the Christmas weekend. Although busy, they found room for us, and we were delighted with the meal of newly roasted beef and pork loin with superb roast potatoes and fresh vegetables. The landlord and his team richly deserve full praise.

Nice place, friendly staff, decent food and service, at a reasonable price. Surprising that the place was almost empty on a Friday lunchtime. Maybe it's not posh enough for the local clientele. Last month we went to a pub a couple of miles away where the cheapest main was £16 and it was rammed!
