The Muddy Duck, Hethe

My first visit to a pub since the easing of lockdown and only my second visit here, the first being probably about 40 years ago when still a village local. The layout is as previously described although having entered from the carpark I was unaware of the Smog. However I did notice signs for Bog and Grog. The restaurant is currently closed due to Coronavirus but food consisting primarily of pizzas served either in Grog or in a yurt erected in the garden, this being fully occupied at around 6pm yesterday (Saturday). The piźzas were prepared in a wood-fired oven adjacent to the yurt and looked very tasty confirmed by a couple on the next table. Three ales were on offer being Hook Norton Hooky bitter and two from localish Blackpit Brewery near Silverstone Daytripper and Cut and Run all priced at £4.25. I tried the latter two of which the Daytripper was very refreshing but maybe a touch too hoppy whereas the Cut and Run was a good allround bitter. It was too sunny to leave our dogs in the car and being tired from a longish walk they were delighted to crash out on the cold flagstone floor after being made welcome by the staff. Table service only at present but this was carried out efficiently and amicably. All in all my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will happily call in again when next in the area.

The White Horse, Forest Hill

Still being run by the same people as mentioned in the last posting.
Currently closed as a pub due to Coronavirus but offering takeaway meals. Two starters, two main courses with rice for £31 was superb value and superb quality. Due to current circumstances there was no draught ale available but I will be back when the pub trade is up and running again hopefully reasonably soon.

Red Lion, Chinnor

This pub has slowly declined in recent times but has been acquired by Oak Taverns who operate a number of renowned real ale pubs in the area. The pub is temporarily closed for a refurb and should reopen by the end of the month. I will post again once I have paid a visit or two by which time any teething problems should be resolved.
