WELCOME TO THE HIGHWAYMAN

We look forward to welcoming you to our cosy 16th Century Inn located in the "Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty".

Our extensive à la carte menu along with our changing daily lunch specials offers something for everyone's taste.  We prepare all our dishes using only the finest local fresh ingredients.  What better to complement our food than a glass from our personally selected wine list or one of a great selection of both local and international beers.

Please see our sample lunch special menu and please don't hesitate to ask for the latest specials when calling or emailing to make your booking.
