"Forests, woods, heathland: sources of some of the finest food our country can offer. Duck, pheasant and partridge: hare, rabbit and venison � these are traditional and timeless tastes that hark back to the hunt and the raw, visceral pleasure of wild food." "Seasonality is a big thing in food and we�re all for it. There�s nothing better than the crunch of fresh chopped vegetables or the pleasure of scrubbing the first Jersey Royals of the season. From parsnips to pak-choi we love the tastes and textures of the best our growers can offer." "Chefs love the opportunity to show off, it�s how they roll. So when something interesting arrives in the kitchen it�s all knives blazing as they start thinking of something special to do with it." "We�ve always been interested in where food comes from and the journey it takes. Our chefs choose suppliers who understand why our produce needs care and attention along the way, which is why we like to use local suppliers: they care about quality as much as we do." "Strategy is buying a bottle of fine wine when you take a lady out for dinner. Tactics is getting her to drink it!" - Frank Muir

We hope you enjoy this little taster of our 2 wonderful pubs at either ends of the Chilterns: The Alford Arms in Frithsden near Berkhamsted and The Royal Oak in Bovingdon Green just outside Marlow. We would love to hear your feedback on either the website or the pubs and look forward to seeing you for a drink or some eats in the very near future.
As soon as you step inside, you can't help but get caught up in the lively, warm atmosphere, where the boisterous, friendly and attentive teams really enjoy looking after the customers. To be professional yet relaxed is our goal and being busy is what spurs us on.
