 Still going strong...
Now in my 18th year here - the whole pub industry has lost many small locals due to the recession and yet somehow I've managed to survive! Last year saw the wooden gazebo installed (the new smoking shelter) complete with fairy lights and heating. Also new upholstery indoors and some nice garden furniture too. Latest news is the redecoration of the loos - long overdue - and if we have another good summer then there will be more investment to brighten everything else. However, the best thing about this pub is the friendliness of customers and staff - always happy to welcome new friends!

 Outstanding food and beer
The food at the Bell and Bear is nothing short of outstanding. It's so nice to know that we have such a good restaurant nearby to take family and friends when they visit. Also, any real ale fan will have a fieldtrip there's always a good selection on offer!

NZ Kiwis were visiting friends in Amersham in July 2010 and they took us to the Hit and Miss for dinner. We all had rack of lamb - delicious. Some people brought their dog in - that was nice. We dont do that in NZ. The low ceiling and quaint interior were a real eye opening. Comfortable, homely, pleasant. Waitress didn't know what 'spotted dick pudding' was! Aww..

 Under new management. A great place.
We were a large group of hungry children and their Dads that had walked up to Pink and Lily from Brimmer's farm. What a find! The new publican, Steve, and his team were incredibly helpful and friendly. The food was great. The beer was spot on. Exceptional service. I saw the barmaid patiently and pleasantly help a particularly rude Rambler who was upset that her Coke was too large.

The interior is fresh and comfortable and I gather that they have only been open for a week since the renovations were complete. The pub boasts a very nice garden and a good size car park. Thoroughly recommended!

 Change of Guard
We were surprised to return here after a camping trip to Emberton Park last Saturday to find the owners had changed. Hoping for a Thai meal 14 of us sat in the garden, only to find out there isn't anymore Thai food. What we got instead we didn't expect...Seriously excellent food, service and beer. The menu in the window said parties of 7 needed to book but we were accommodated without trouble. The chef owner is the former landlords son and this seems to have had an effect on expanding trade as it was quite busy. The food is no longer thai but british with focus on fresh local ingredients, the food is unbelievably cheap for the quality. I've been a chef for 20 years and the rack of Lamb I had was cooked to perfection as good as any rosette awarded restaurant and perfectly seasoned. Incredible all the ingredients were sourced from within 5 miles of the pub, most of it from village residents. Areas of the pub need redecorating but we enjoyed our afternoon here. We will return next year for sure.

 Dissapointing
Had heard the pub was worth a visit and we travelled 30 minutes to get there. Great beer garden however very dissapointing meal. Both my wife and my roasts were the quality of the Tesco Cafeteria at best and served cold (and still 10 per roast). I'd go for a beer in the garden, but that's it.

For those on a wheat-free diet it's a bit of a nightmare as they cover everything in flour. Phoned beforehand and was told it wouldn't be a problem catering for me! For the rest of my party that don't have this problem their food was lovely. Don't sit in the middle of the room as there's quite a draft that whizzes through! Sit in front of one of the lovely fires.

 New Pool table!
We are delighted to announce the very successful installation of a Pool table. Despite the smoking ban and now the doom and gloom of a recession, the Pool table is a great source of entertainment and amusement. Designed to be easily relocated for party nights or darts matches, it has quickly become a popular feature.

 Great pub, good beer, tasty food
Just visited the Lions and can only assume it has changed since some of the comments here were posted. The beer was perfect (I had a pint of 6X and a Pride) - beautifully kept and room temperature.

Food was superb with a selection of 6 veggy dishes - my greek salad was gourgeous.

Service was superb - friendly, helpful and accomodating.

Actual pub layout a wonderful old feel

 Not a nice place to be...
The pub, its atmosphere and reputation were created by its previous owners. I have eaten there at least once a week for the past twenty years; however it has deteriorated in the last 5 or so, due to the lack of change and unfriendly nature of the management. Many of the regulars, who were also Princes Risborough residents like me, commute to our jobs in London, and to have a nice local place to eat was a must. Without exception they have all now abandoned this pub as a bad lot after various run-ins with the management over poor quality ale, cold and poorly prepared food and service, it seems the money has now left. If you like a pub full of loud, brash, illiterate, bad smelling, drunk yokels then this is the place for you. The food is sometimes edible but often, in fact very often, just re-heated rubbish.

 Comments re-instated
I am a little confused as to why my comments regarding the Lions at Bledlow have been removed. There may have been a few typos but there certainly was no abusive content. There is little or no point in having a review site if it must all be positive. I have visited this pub on a number of occasions over the years and, as I said in my post, have previously always been impressed. If I hadn't been I would not have recommended it as a place for a goup of friends to take a drive out to. I see that some of group's messages have been left and the user name Funk had driven al the way from the south coast, others had come from East Hertfodshire, Cambridshire and Northamptonshire. If the site is to be called Best Pubs,. Perhaps the inclusion of the Lions should be reviewed?

 I wish I had read this website before
The old and grey cockney landlord came down after we had had our meals. He heard me tell the waitress that the steak was slightly overdone. This must have upset him as he then decided to give his opinion on my comment. He informed me I shouldn't be worried about the overdone steak, I should be wondering about the special sauce of his own he had used on my meal. My son was very restrained and we left the pub with me in tears and him laughing. I don't understand why anyone would be so mean.

I have live in Emberton Village for 43 years and the Bell and Bear is my local pub. where the food was not that good and i have seen it go down hill.Until Basil & his good lady came and change it to a Thai Resturant 3years ago.

 Dear Webbie
Why bother with a rating system then - just give them all a 5 Rosette rank? Why list every pub in the UK, if you're only after the BEST pubs? It naturally follows that if some pubs are the best then others are not - and the Lions is clearly the latter. You have a duty of care to your readers AND the pubs listed to report both the positive and negative comments they attract (save the gratuitously abusive) so that they may keep the positives and improve upon the negatives. If you remove the negatives then you're just propogated poor practice and are no better than a toadying sycophant. What I said earlier about the internet being a dangerous place to develop a bad name for yourself applies as much to this site as the pubs in question - people must know that they can trust your reviews, and that they aren't a watered down version (pun most certainly intended). Oh and sort out the formatting - I had all sorts of paragraphs and quotes in my previous (now also removed) post, and this site just merges them into one long drawl - hardly good for ease of scansion. Screen capture again taken.

Funk
 Not impressed
Having been glowingly recommended by one of our group, we were shocked and appalled by the attitude of the staff, the quality of food and drink and the fact that they ran out of a number of desserts as well - planning people, planning! It's not like you'd EXPECT to be busy on a weekend is it...?

Staff were surly, disinterested (in fact almost downright rude), have clearly forgotten what customer service is and caused embarrassment to the person who recommended them - he felt bad he'd taken us to a place that was a let down. We were left standing waiting to pay (after having agreed we could do so by splitting up a tab - which was written out in such an incredibly unclear manner it was ridiculous), we had to decipher and calculate our own amounts without any indication of breakdown from the staff. In fact, we very nearly walked out without paying after being left there - it was clear no-one wanted to deal with us as 'problem' customers.

We'll never visit again, and we'll let people know about the bad experience we had. It's a shame as it was obviously once very good, has a great location, plenty of parking and is beautiful inside. I can't recommend highly enough that you avoid this pub at all costs. The sad fact is, most of this could have been forgiven and forgotten with a simple apology, perhaps a small waiver as a token gesture and at least we wouldn't be sat here complaining on a website.

Oh, and to whoever censored these posts, you have a moral obligation to re-instate them - otherwise you as a site are doing no favours to the users looking for genuine feedback on the pubs you list.

Sort it out.

 Want to come and visit
My great grandparents met each other at the Chequers Inn back in 1891. My great grandmother, Elizabeth Fensom, was staying with her sister Emily at the time. Emily and her husband John Chillips were the Inn Keepers at that time. From the stories handed down, it was a romantic courtship with boating on the river, and a decision to run away and elopeif the families did not agree to the marriage. Now that I have finally tracked down this infamous part of our family history, I can't wait to come and visit next time I am in England. Kevin Dyke. Sydney, Australia.

Although this pub is slightly off the beaten track I would advise anyone not to miss it. The menu selection has something for evryone and is most delicious.

 Upsetting
A lovely meal and served by a hospitable waitress. I had my usual belly pork for main, a favourite of mine and it was excellent as usual. Being from Great Missenden with only 3 main pubs on the main high street I am now limited to 2. This is because I refuse to go back to the White Lion for one simple reason - The rude and unhospitable landlord. His unprevoked verbal attack on my elderly mother and myself was upsetting to say the least. I did note, however, that he waited until I had paid the bill before becoming rude. He is obviously not short of customers or is not concerned with further repeat business or his local clientele. I had heard of his reputation from the other restaurants and pubs in the local area but decided to reserve judgement for myself - Silly me!

A nice evening with good company ruined by a Landlord who acted as though he would rather be doing anything else than the job he was paid to do, possibly the most unproffesional and rude man I have ever met, and I've met a lot of men.

 Good food, Bad Landlord
Food was superb but even that is not enough for me to go back and put up with a landlord who could obviously do with attending a Customer Service course or an Anger management group. Never have I experienced someone in the trade who is so arrogant and rude. He personally made the whole experience a bitter disappointment. Horrible man.

I ordered three mealson a monday lunch time Of which the roast chicken was very dry, I asked for no peas yet they were served, Another meal, the haddock and chips was plainly reheated as the batter was very dark brown and the fish inside again was dry. In all presentation and eating was not a pleasant exprience. Avoid this restuarant.

Traditional pub with high standards and a reputation for great beer. Dog and child friendly (as long as they are well behaved and under control!), well supported by locals. Occasional litter of quality GSDs; an event looked forward to by most regulars who get to help with the socialisation of the puppies from an early age until they go to their new homes at 8 weeks old. We have high standards for cleanliness and conduct.

 Great Pub with friendly staff
I had lunch at the pub with my wife and aunt. We had bangers and mash and a spicy chicken sandwich. The portions were a good size and the food was excellent. We also had dessert that was very good. The pub has an added patio room (or conservatory as it is called in the UK) that allows for non-smoking customers to enjoy their meals. This was a delight as most pubs do not separate the non-smoking area this well. The staff was incredibly friendly. Being from the US, I like the official pint glasses and asked if I could buy 4 from them. The owners simply gave me 4 brand new glasses at no charge.

The restaurant has a excellent menu which is served with a well chosen wine list. The staff are without doubt excellent, never short of a smile and unerringly helpful. The price is not cheap but for that service alone it is worth the money.
