The Dinton Hermit  

Two miles to the North East over the fields from Thame or 5 miles by country roads takes you to Ford and the freehouse 'The Dinton Hermit', a friendly and cosy 15th century stone cottage village inn in Water Lane.

The pub is named after a hermit who lived in a nearby cave whose history is displayed in the pub. One of his famous boots is held in Aylesbury Museum.

Beers on sale were Adnams Bitter and Wadworths 6X. The beer is cheaper in the bar than the saloon. There is no juke box.

The public bar is to the left and has scrubbed tables and a wood burning stove in a large inglenook to keep you warm in winter. On the right is the lounge bar with its log fire and plush red seats along the wall. Further seating is red leatherette and there is a small room leading off.

Food is wholesome and filling. Bookings (not required for lunchtimes) are taken for evening meals in the saloon and it was good to see Chiltern Brewery mustards on the tables. Examples are soup, vegetarian hotpot and home made bread pudding.

Traditional pub games are also played as is darts and dominoes.

Outside there is a beer garden opposite with swings and chairs, etc. for children.

Accommodation here in 13 rooms with different themes.
