A Radnage pub has been named Restaurant of the Year in Waitrose's Good Food Guide.

The Mash Inn has been revealed as one of the very best places to dine in the UK as Waitrose and Partners unveils The Good Food Guide.

The guide - published on Thursday, September 12 - announces this year's foodie front runners and the Radnage eatery has made it onto the list.

Describing why The Mash Inn was chosen, the guide says: "The grown-up pub dishes up a daily four-course menu or ten-course taster, where ‘pretty much everything is exposed to naked flames or burning charcoal’, resulting in dishes that feel fresh but not slavishly fashionable.

"Often using ingredients from the kitchen garden, highlights from the menu include darkly blistered chapa flatbread with clean, aerated romanesco and green apple soup, simple just-pulled radishes with hay mayo, and a memorable côte du boeuf with silky, umami-rich sesame miso sauce."

The pub - owned by Nick Mash - is incredibly popular with Bucks residents and has been winning accolades since it opened its doors in 2016.

It was recently rated among the 100 best in Britain in the National Restaurant Awards (one of just three in Bucks) and in October 2017, it was named the best "posh pub" in the UK.

The pub is not the only successful eatery to make it into the new guide.

The Artichoke in Market Square, Amersham has also been named in the the top 50 - coming in at number 48.

Elizabeth Carter, editor of The Good Food Guide by Waitrose & Partners, said: “Seven decades of publication have given The Good Food Guide a unique insight into eating out in Britain. And the more we conduct our lives online, the more we look for care, provenance and thoughtfulness – especially when it comes to food.

"With diners increasingly looking for flexible eating options and value for money, there has been a surge in inexpensive cafés and restaurants that rank quality of ingredients above all else.

"Small, owner-run dining rooms across the country provide clear examples of how they can and do work in direct opposition to the pizza-burger overload on the British high street.”
