Tucked away in the quaint village of Waddesdon, The Long Dog pub balances cosy character and charm with contemporary flourishes.

The menu seamlessly combines familiar British classics with modern European touches, resulting in unexpected dimensions of flavour. Freshly cooked and locally sourced, the cuisine is prepared with both quality and style in mind. In order to exploit the best seasonal ingredients available, the chefs change the bill of fare on a monthly basis, although traditional pub dishes, such as burgers in brioche-style buns and beer-battered fish with hand-cut chips, are, of course, always on offer.

To begin, the concept of a goat's cheese starter was taken to new heights with The Long Dog's version, which saw chunks of cheese alongside goat's curd, marinated beets and pieces of candied walnuts. Meanwhile, the aromas coming from my guest's sweet crispy duck hinted at its incredible flavour. Having been subject to a five-hour-long marinade prior to preparation, and served with mooli and hoisin plum sauce, it was a gastronomic triumph.

My main course was a real showstopper: slow-cooked pork belly with a sticky-sweet rind. It was topped with punchy slithers of cider apple which cut through the creaminess of the rich Dauphinoise potatoes wonderfully. What a treat
