Rumsey’s, Wendover and Thame
This splendid gluten-free grilled vegetable and cream cheese sandwich feast and extraordinary coleslaw was served up at a lunchtime when I’d done the bad thing of skipping breakfast. It was just one of numerous choices for us ‘Awkward Annies’. Rumsey’s, of course, is noted for its chocolate, cakes and ice creams, but I never got that far. Another time…
The Whip, Lacey Green
For centuries Brits have had their ‘local’, not necessarily one’s closest, where you are made to feel welcome in a relaxed atmosphere. For me The Whip Inn (thewhipinn.co.uk) ticks all of those boxes and more. I’m not a lover of fine dining, instead I prefer classic pub food done well, which is guaranteed here. Then of course there’s the beer. Known for serving in excess of 800 different ales in one year, The Whip Inn doesn’t disappoint in choice of cask.

Jaflong, Princes Risborough
Jaflong Balti and Tandoori Cuisine serves delicious food with a smile. We’ve never have to wait too long for our meals. My favourite is Rogan Josh, a tantalising spicy tomato dish, with a Peshwari naan. My gluten intolerant friend can eat there, and the bar is alcohol-free, so people are invited to bring their own drinks. It’s cheap, cheerful, and delicious. Perfect!

Bucksum Farm Shop
I love Bucksum Farm Shop, www.bucksum.co.uk, on the Shabbington Road out of Long Crendon. Open Wednesday afternoons and Saturday mornings it sells freshly picked vegetables and salad across the year – there are eggs and yogurts too. Much is home grown by owner David Newman. Time it right and what is harvested in the morning can be fresh on your plate that day.
