First Review by joegevans

real country pub that goes above and beyond for veggies and vegans - Edit

this is a brilliant English country pub on its own ignoring the fact it is also so great for veggies and vegans (and meat eaters). Great rotation of ales, friendly locals and a spectacular setting in the pretty village of bledlow.

thanks to the fact that the Landlord is a Vegetarian, there is always a vegetarian menu on the wall which usually has home made pies, chilli, burgers, salads etc. at least one or two of these options are vegan (and not just the salads, but the pies etc), but more importantly the chef (also landlord) is always very accommodating to vegans and can modify or create dishes on demand.

best pub in bucks (but I might be biased as its our regular haunt)

Pros: very dog friendly, a real traditional pub, not a gastro pub

Cons: can get very busy on sunday lunches/bank holidays

Vegan options! - Edit

The Lions is an excellent country pub, nestled in a corner of the village, like a gateway to some great woodland walks.

The chef is vegetarian and always has a separate vegetarian menu that always includes a couple of vegan options. I have had great soups, a lovely veggie chilli (with veggie mince) and most recently a really tasty vegetable pie, on wholemeal crust with roast potatoes, veg and gravy on a Sunday. I hope this become a permanent fixture!

Pros: Vegetarian menu, Vegan options, Parking

Cons: Can get busy, Need to book on a Sunday

Very veg friendly old English pub - Edit

This lovely old 16th Century pub does sell meat but they also have a dedicated vegetarian board and a vegetarian owner. If this were in a city centre that would be no big deal but out in the countryside of Buckinghamshire this is incredibly rare!

I had a delicious veg chilli (vegan without the sour cream) in the bar area. It has everything you'd expect from a traditional country pub - low beams, antique weaponry on the walls, open fire, lots of dogs, great gardens and a large car park.

If you are in the area and looking for a country pub experience without the 'beef-on-beef' menu then you'd do well to visit.

Pros: Dedicated veg menu, Very generous portions, Traditional country poub
