Bel and The Dragon, Cookham

A delightful pub which has preserved its olde worlde interior while permitting a new extension. The South African family who run the establishment are friendly and helpful, managing to promptly serve the two hikers (us) who showed up with 30-45 mins to spare for a quick Sunday lunch at a busy time of day. As prices are high,portions could be more generous, but the food is irresistably tasty. This establishment is a short-ish drive to Heathrow and the thought of bringing friends and family fresh from the arrivals hall is tantalising,

The Nags Head, Great Missenden

It's hard to find a pub offering consistently delicious food (based on my 2nd visit yesterday) here in Southern England, so top marks to the Nags head for the tasty lamb (excluding the shredded meat beneath) and 'dauphinois potatoes'. Even the Tempranillo was an interesting and chocolatey (unusually for a red wine). The service was attentive and polite. It would great if the food just wasn't so expensive (26 for main course, side order of veggies and 1 small glass of wine), hence I'm obliged to give it an 8 and not the 9 it deserves. Sorry to have missed the St Bernard..

The White Hart, Littleton on Severn

A nice old pub in a lovely setting (check out the sunset from the garden).
I've given it a 6/10 rating because, despite efforts made to cook good food (as evidenced by half of our group being satisfied with their orders), I paid 17.95 for a tasty, 'well done' steak which has been ruined by being cooked into leather. I know the standard advice to diners on this island is to order a steak 'medium' to avoid this problem, but alas pregnant women are strongly counselled against eating meat which isn't thoroughly cooked, ruling out the 'slightly bloody' option. This would be a pub to return to repeatedly (don't I love the Gloucestershire ones despite living in London!) if the food was generally very good and the prices say 20% lower.
