From my first contact with Louis the landlord I felt confident that it was a good choice. The pub is quite small but has an excellent function / dining... More

We've been walking to The Black Cat for years now for the occasional Sunday drink while the roast cooks at home. The pub is surrounded by fields and many great walks around the Chilterns. This week we dined and the food was fantastic. Traditional Sunday Roast with all the trimmings & extremely well priced. The pub is child friendly with... More

Excellent family lunch for 11 of us including 4 children. We were so well looked after by Elaine, Louis and the team. Definitively worth visiting for either just a drink or to eat, the roast was superb. Look forward to visiting again soon.

5 of us called in for lunch on our way to giving a charity concert. We were "pushed" for time but experienced quick service which helped us tremendously. The food was excellent value and the bar lady helpful and polite. Overall an excellent experience. Highly recommended. We will return. Brian P

Taken to this pub by my partner's brother who lives nearby on my first visit to the UK. It was a horrible cold and rainy day, but the pub was warm and welcoming. The range of food on the menu was longer than most other pubs. And I was happy with the ones I ordered. The people were friendly and... More

We went to the Black Cat for lunch on a family walk. Great value food from a traditional menu with good beers on tap. A small pub with mainly 50s music it's of its time but none the worse for that. Good service. We all enjoyed it and were pleased we went.

I went back to The Black Cat with a couple of friends, the welcome was amazing. The food was great, as was the service, even though the pub was full to bursting with gentlemen walkers. Thank you Jackie Cox

Thank you for taking the time to pop a review of The Black Cat on Trip Advisor, very often we have groups of ramblers, perfect area for it, but I'm sure they also will appreciate the 'gentlemen' to describe them. :).
