His­toric inns of­fer mod­ern-day fare

Pubs have al­ways played an im­por­tant part in our com­mu­ni­ties and we’re keen to en­sure that tra­di­tion con­tin­ues. Here, some land­lords share their lat­est news. We’ll drink to that!

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - PUB OF THE YEAR - St Peter HEAD, Che­sham ARMS, Winch­more CRICK­ETERS, Seer Green LION, White Lion Road, Lit­tle Chal­font HEAD INN, Whielden Street, Amer­sham AND MAG­PIES, Coleshill Land­lords - Email us with de­tails about what’s new at your pub. Whether it’s the in­trodu

It’s this time of year when the thought of walk­ing into a pub with a roar­ing log fire and a re­ally cheer­ful face be­hind the bar is ex­tremely ap­peal­ing. And if you fancy that sce­nario, get along to the Dumbbell where Mick and Trysh al­ways keep a warm wel­come. Great place to take the kids with a huge se­lec­tion of meals for young­sters and lots to keep them oc­cu­pied.

And the pub serves some fan­tas­tic real ales. THE QUEEN’S

Land­lady Lisa has in­vited back the eclec­tic duo Mouth on a Stick as the mu­si­cal en­ter­tain­ment on Fri­day, Novem­ber 28.

Howard and Keith used to play to­gether in the 80s rock band Li­ai­son and now tour the pub cir­cuit pro­duc­ing an amaz­ing range of cov­ers from bands as di­verse as El­bow, Nir­vana, Slade, Procul Harum and Pink Floyd. Def­i­nitely worth catch­ing th­ese guys who will be on stage from around 9pm.

THE POT­TER’S

Hill

Richard Ed­wards has fi­nally man­aged to get John Fothergill down here to do a gig, one of his favourite co­me­di­ans from the Cut­ting Edge Show at the Com­edy Store and also a reg­u­lar com­pere of the King Gong at the same venue. A Ge­ordie comic with an amaz­ing sense of hu­mour, this show is not to be missed as also ap­pear­ing on the same bill are Gor­don South­ern and Erich McEl­roy. To Book Tick­ets Call Richard on 01494 726 222. THE JOLLY

If you haven’t tasted head chef Matt Lyons’ food yet you re­ally are miss­ing a treat. There’s al­ways some­thing in­ter­est­ing on the menu that will get your taste buds go­ing. This old Vic­to­rian pub in the heart of the vil­lage is run by Amanda Baker and Chris Lil­li­tou whose mantle­piece must be groan­ing un­der the weight of all the fan­tas­tic awards they’ve won this year for their pub. The Crick­eters is the epit­ome of a won­der­ful coun­try pub. Go and see what we mean.

THE WHITE

This lovely old pub has been around for at least 150 years - and prob­a­bly a lot longer but his­tor­i­cal de­tails of its ori­gins are pretty sketchy. One the­ory is that it might have been one of the tav­erns op­er­ated by the old Weller’s Brew­ery of Amer­sham.

What­ever its back­ground, the mod­ern day pub prides it­self on of­fer­ing great meals and well-kept beers - with an ex­cel­lent wine list to boot.

Pop in and give it a try.

THE SARA­CEN’S

This old coach­ing inn has a won­der­ful at­mos­phere. It dates back as far 1530 and was built from tim­bers taken from old ships. The pub of­fers a good se­lec­tion of food and drink - and ac­com­mo­da­tion as well if you’re look­ing for a place to spend the night after a day in the Chilterns. THE HARTE

Steve Lever has made this into a real fam­ily venue which al­ways wel­comes young­sters. There’s a good se­lec­tion of ales and an ex­ten­sive menu and even at this time of year, the Harte pro­vides an ex­cel­lent fo­cal point for those who want to walk the Chilterns.

The pub also hosts the monthly meet­ings of the Clas­sic Amer­i­can Car and Bike Club which take place on the sec­ond Sun­day each month.

Mick and Trysh will give you a warm wel­come at The Dumbbell
