open and there will be lots to entertain the whole family so get on down there, support this excellent micro-brewery and sample some of their wares. The open day will run from noon till 4pm and will feature music, a chance to watch the farm animals, cheese tasting and games. THE SQUIRREL,
This lovely pub stands on the edge of a large tract of ancient woodland – Penn Wood – which is owned and maintained by the Woodland Trust and on a clear autumn day there can be few pursuits to rival a ramble through this enchanting forest. Park your car at the Squirrel’s substantial car park and take the family for a walk in the fresh air before returning to the pub for a bite to eat and a glass of whatever takes your fancy.
The pub is fully child friendly with lots to keep the children
entertained while mum and dad relax.
LION, Knotty Green, Beaconsfield
Tina and her crew are renowned for running one of the best pubs in south Bucks – and that’s largely because of the care they take over everything they do. Whether it’s their great live music on Friday evenings, the poker nights on Mondays or the open mic nights every Tuesday, there’s always great entertainment at the Lion. Oh... and did we mention that they do great food and drink too! This historic pub – dating back to 1753 – used to be the local of Enid Blyton and landlady Tina Massie even has a Blyton snug with copies of her books and occasional visits from Noddy! THE FALCON
Landlord David Brench offers a warm welcome, well-kept real
ales and tasty food for locals and those just passing through alike. If you’re playing golf at the Buckinghamshire or at Denham GC, why not pop in for a pint and a bite after your game – and get David to regale you with his story about working with former Open Champion Tom Weiskopf on building the Loch Lomond golf course?
