The Hundred of Ashendon

The family-run, rambling seventeenth Century the Hundred of Ashendon in Buckinghamshire offers a welcoming bar, delicious food and cosy and comfy rooms nestled in gorgeous countryside.

Awarded a Bib Gourmand by the Michelin Guide in both 2016 and 2017 and a place in the Good Food Guide, customers will find everything they need for a relaxing and restorative weekend away, a pint with friends or a chilled Sunday lunch with the family.

Having worked at some of the country’s top restaurants, including St John and the Hand & Flowers, head chef Matt Gill has returned to the countryside he grew up in to open his first solo venture.

With a passion for British food, the menu features seasonal and local dishes, which change daily – as often as Matt’s mood in fact.

Wherever possible, Matt sources produce from within the Hundred itself.

Standouts from the sample menu are noceralla olives (£3.50) and rock oysters (£2.75) as starters to braised hare with carrots, shallots and beer (£16.10) or pheasant and bacon pie (£13) for main.

The pub also offers a splendid range of local ales in the Gatehanger bar and a daily-changing bar snack menu.
