Seriously good food at very sensible prices!
We love our food here at hiya bucks. As soon as we have finished eating one meal we are looking forward to the next. It’s not that we are greedy, it’s just that we enjoy eating, especially when the food has been lovingly prepared by a really talented chef like the one at The Three Oaks in Gerrards Cross.
Our dining experience was a culinary adventure that made us very happy indeed. We were treated to one amazing flavour after another and the attention to detail of how the food was presented was second to none. No wonder they are listed in the Michelin Guide, have a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence, Bib Gourmand awards (good food and service but at a reasonable price) and a host of other awards and good food listings.
The first thing to catch our eye was the menu. We noticed straight away that today’s date was featured at the top. This is because the menu changes depending on availability of ingredients so every visit is a new experience. We were also pleased to see a menu consisting of just two pages; no-one wants to trawl through a menu that reads like a book.
Spoilt for choice we were and although I protested I only wanted 2 courses this was never going to happen.
Our particular favourites were:
• Appetizer: Marmite butter served with homemade bread; an ingenious idea!
• Starter: Lamb Shoulder Croquettes; simply divine
• Main: Blythburgh Farm Pork Collar; so tender and full of flavour
• Dessert: Baileys Mousse; no words needed except to say vegans and gluten free guests can enjoy this one too!
The presentation of the food is fine dining, in our opinion, but the prices don’t reflect this. With an option of 2 courses for £19 or 3 for £23 (dinner set menu) dining in The Three Oaks at Gerrards Cross is affordable for all. There are plenty of gluten free and vegan options too. The restaurant styling is elegant with an olde worlde pub charm to it.
We hear their Sunday Roasts are the best in Bucks – we will be back to see for ourselves very soon.
