The Pointer

UK England South East England Buckinghamshire Aylesbury

A proper country restaurant and pub, with four comfy guest rooms and superb field-to-fork cooking.

Situated in a pretty hilltop village that has not one but two village greens, and also inspired Tolkien when writing ‘The Hobbit’, The Pointer is a proper country pub with rooms – a venue for country walks, dogs and muddy boots, and the prospect of a pint and a good meal at the end of it.

Revamped a few years ago and now part of the Oakman Inns group, it serves a Mediterranean-inspired menu along with British grilled steaks and Sunday roasts, much of it sourced from the butcher’s next door.  It’s all beautifully presented and the service excellent, with an emphasis on high quality fresh ingredients.

As for the rooms, there are 8 in all, divided between the pub and a house across the road, but all stylishly decorated in a rustic yet contemporary fashion, with exposed beams, soothing greys and creams on the walls, big comfy beds and good wifi, Freeview TVs and Nespresso coffee-makers, tea, biscuits and fresh milk and mineral water. They have roomy bathrooms, with robes, nice toiletries and powerful rainfall showers, and some bedrooms have free-standing baths. You even get a copy of The Hobbit to browse – and dogs are welcome and are allowed in the bar.



Open all year.


Double rooms from £160 a night including breakfast.
