Oak & Saw Village Inn, Taplow
Muddy says: A friendly pub offering quality, unpretentious food in the picture perfect, well-heeled village of Taplow (close to Cliveden, for your kids or dogs to let off steam!).
Plenty of things to love about Taplow – Cliveden National Trust and Cliveden House Spa are just down the road, gorgeous walks – and now we can add the award-winning Oak & Saw Village Inn, an attractive 19th century pub opposite the church and village green, as another! The village is also famous for having the only High Street with no shop, it has a whopping number of multi-millionaires and was home to Terry Wogan. In fact the Oak & Saw sees many famous faces come through their doors. Not that anyone bats an eyelid. All standard stuff.
The food is quality pub grub, with a special menu for little people (think sausage and mash, fish and chips and egg, chips and beans). The steak nights and Sunday lunches are legendary, but make sure you book to be guaranteed a table. It gets super busy.
Having recently been refurbished, the interior is compact with some pretty bay window seating with dramatic dark walls but there’s also a small, attractive brick-walled courtyard out the back, dotted with hanging baskets and planters throughout the summer.
Locals and tourists both well-serviced by the friendly staff.
