Review on The Mash Inn
The Mash Inn is located in the picturesque hamlet of Bennett End in Buckinghamshire, flanked by the rolling Chiltern Hills it's set in a red-bricked building that can trace its history back to 1745. Since being taken over by Nick Mash, it has garnered numerous accolades including the Good Food Guide's Restaurant of the Year 2020.
Full of character, the small cosy bar with its crackling log fire still serves the local community as a watering hole, but it's the quality of the food in the restaurant that has put The Mash Inn on the culinary map. The dining room is light and airy with floor-to-ceiling windows looking out onto the patio, with stunning countryside views. Stylish oak tables and chairs and a 14-seat communal table have been crafted by Bates & Lambourne, but taking centre stage in the interactive kitchen is the huge bespoke wood-fired grill designed locally.
Holding sway in the kitchen is talented chef Jonathan Parry, whose career includes working alongside high profile names such as Tom Aikens and Adam Byatt. He makes the most of the abundance of the local larder, giving them the opportunity to forage, pickle and cure, with their own kitchen garden a key element to the daily menu. To accompany the dishes there's a concise wine list including English sparkling wine from nearby Harrow & Hope, the UK Winery of the Year 2019.
The Mash Inn has six charming bedrooms should you wish to extend your visit and explore the lovely surrounding area further.
