Chinnor Road, Bledlow Ridge, HP14 4AW
The village of Bledlow Ridge, with its stunning views of the Ridgeway and Aylesbury Plain, used to boast five pubs. When the last one, The Boot, was threatened with closure the local community stepped in and saved it. The pub is now owned by nearly 200 shareholders, and is ably run by Bledlow Ridge-bornand-bred Emma and her husband Andy. They've created a vision of traditional but updated elegance, with high beams, tongue and groove panelling, slate floors, reflective surfaces and a delightful garden.

The menu changes seasonally and is supplemented by specials, with the focus on sophisticated and satisfying dishes cooked to order. I indulged my love of fish with tender squid followed by two generous fillets of sea bass, while my husband started with a crisp, deep-fried ham hock dish before moving on to a trio of lamb. For dessert, I enjoyed the salted caramel torte with raspberry coulis and my husband somehow found room for an exquisite passion fruit creme brulée. The flavour of each dish was spot on, right down to the accompanying fresh vegetables, and the presentation was attractive without being pretentious.

Throughout our visit to this busy and bustling pub, we enjoyed friendly service. By the end of the meal, we both felt well-fed, relaxed and content
