The Crown at Radnage
This tiny country pub punches above its weight when it comes to food, with its Cliveden House alumni chef. It’s also a Mecca for cyclists on weekends.

It’s well worth the trip out to the tiny Chilterns village of Radnage to check out the newly refurbished Crown. The small open-plan dining room/ bar is a friendly spot, populated with a mix of ladies who lunch and locals in for a lunchtime pint. Whether you’re after a classic pub burger or a fancy-schmancy sea bass with kalamata olive mash, chef Chris Wellington, formerly of Cliveden House, delivers with his well-priced menu. There’s also a clay oven for pizzas, which are available to take away should you wish. MAMILs take note: there’s a Velo Cafe at the weekend, complete with coffees, pastries, protein bars and CCTV covering the bike racks. Plus there are four B&B rooms in a quiet outhouse and two acres of back garden in which the kids can cut loose.
