Jim Hales and me, December 1997

A lovely old pub which I'm going to let you find on your own as it'll spoil part of your visit if you got there straight away and didn't explore the area first. Not far from Junction 5 of the M40, yet it seems like it's in the middle of nowhere. A great pub for lunch, especially if you are after something light to enjoy. Food is good value for money and tasty. They also serve food during the evening. Outside the tiled cottage pub there's seating so that you can breathe fresh country air while you enjoy a pint of Brakspear beer in the pleasant rural surroundings. They've a good range of Brakspear beers on offer and particularly now that they're all brewed back in Oxfordshire again are worth a try so long as you're not the one driving!

The interior has a big brick inglenook, hop bines hanging from the ceiling and lots of things to read if your on your own and don't fancy a chat. Friendly service behind the bar and while we were there a friendly cat wandered over and relaxed beside us. There's a very welcoming warming open fire in the bar during the winter months. All in all an a pub worth visiting if you like the atmosphere had in a traditional country hostelry with no machines and tacky music. A good folk session run by the Marlow Bottom Acoustic Club on the third Wednesday evening of every month.
