It’s no secret that I’m a great fan of hospitality interiors so when an invitation comes through to check out the refurbished Apple Tree pub in Gerrards Cross, it was a no brainer.

As there were other guests around, all photography is handheld and taken using the ambient light available, which naturally dimished as the evening progressed, but the quality of the interiors and the excellent food should speak for themselves.

Located on the A40, there’s a good sized car park and as the weather gets warmer, an extensive outdoor seating area

Delicious nibbles platter

Pork, squid, pate and hummus are just some of the delicious nibbles we tried. We loved the lot and our young daughter was given her own plate with squid featuring toned down seasoning

By the end of our meal, which comprised platters of nibbles, a main and dessert, we were already discussing when we’d be back to try some of the other menu options. The pub is clearly aimed at the quality end of the market, with a menu that provides a fine dining take on traditional favourites. This said it is priced well and could suit a range of groups and occasions, supported by a pleasingly varied children’s menu.
