Gastro Pub
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 roast was one of the better ones we have had in a pub. Service was excellent. It was a shame that the advertised heated tent in which we ate (due to covid measures and us not being from the same household) was not warm at all. The 2 heater elements in place were insufficient. Ambiance inside the pub was very nice and it was warm. We would definitely come back but bring blankets like another party did. Thumbs up though for providing outside seating and service.

As always we were welcomed with open arms and they made our stay really comfortable. We were offered a nice table where we could sit down with our little dog and enjoy a meal in peace.

The food was absolutely gorgeous and presented to a standard that will make any Michelin star chef proud.

We really enjoyed our meals and looking forward to making this our local pub when we move to the Chilterns in a few months.

Our first visit for a while but pleased to see that standards have not slipped. Victoria was an attentive but unobtrusive waitress and the portion sizes were huge. Not only is the chocolate mousse delicious, but you get three times as much as most other places. And if blue cheese is your think, try the remarkable deep fried stilton salad.

The Pink and Lily do a great job. Really good food , great service and a relaxed atmosphere. Just as nice in autumn with the fire as it is in summer in the fantastic garden.

Lovely, friendly place to eat with cosy open fires and nice walks close by. Will definitely return. Dog friendly (just make sure you call to book the dog friendly tables because the online booking didn't seem to let me specify).

Food and service were great. Social distance and visors etc well adhered to by staff. Slightly let down by steak at £28 per head only being offered medium rare. I believe the customer should be able to choose.
Also a group of 8 Young adults allowed to sit together despite being challenged when the first 5 walked in.
Still a great meal.

Great tasting food. We chose to sit in the comfy fireside chairs and settee opposite the open fire which they lit after overhearing my friend comment "How lovely would that be if it was alight".
The food was really tasty and the service was excellent. We are already planning a return visit.

Starters fab, but some of the mains over cooked and blueberry and almond dessert disappointing lack of almonds and poor pastry. Having said this overall ambience, service and choice great and we will certainly return

We really liked the pods in the garden, they keep the wind off you and have comfortable padded seats.
Food was good, except the homemade pie was rather dry. Also, no sanitiser outside the ladies’ loo.
Overall very good

Nice food and nice looking pub but disappointed it wasn’t taking part in the 50% off (eat out to help out) and slow (but friendly)service given it wasn’t very busy.
