A beautiful thatched-roof countryside pub, The Long Dog is an intimate spot for any time of day. A range of contemporary menus are offered, and there are regular live jazz evenings that are big draws.

The Long Dog menu adds international tweaks to traditional British recipes. There is pork belly with black pudding potato cake and pickled cabbage, fresh seafood like salmon fillet with jewelled quinoa and salsa verde, and vegetarian options like pea and mint risotto.

Craft beers from breweries such as BrewDog are served, as well as gluten-free lager and signature cocktails. Inventive desserts at The Long Dog Waddesdon include pear poached in wine and honey with nougat and sorbet, with a full wine list to accompany.

Also offering boutique wedding reception options, The Long Dog is 6 minutes' drive from Aylesbury Vale Parkway Rail Station.

    Have had much better meals here than yesterday. Had to wait over an hour and a half for food and some of it was sent back (although they did give us a drink and say it was a new chef.) Friendly atmosphere, usually much better, have had lovely meals here in the past. Nice that locals get a discount. Fish and chips is the best dish, good choice on menu.

    The atmosphere and their general take on the gastro-pub theme is very nice and inviting. Unfortunately, the staff (in training?) were not really on the ball and the food was unfortunately not great at all (salty and too dry [across the dishes]). The ideas were all very nice, but the execution unfortunately lacked. Even with only a handful of tables being busy the waiters (and there were quite a few of them) could not remember which table ordered what. They were trying, no doubt about it, but it wasn't really working.
    The desserts were, again, aiming high but not really delivering, which led to them being not great value for money.
    With a bit of training / restructuring and check-in on the food, this would be a really great place.

    Excellent, friendly service and very accommodating to the needs of the small children. Amazing food and lovely chilled out atmosphere, and we weren't rushed at all.

    Staff were friendly and atmosphere was really nice around a table for four just in front of the fireplace. Starters and main courses were good but the dessert of Apple Crumble left a little to be desired. Custard was a thimble fill and Crumble was somewhat lacking in apple. When further Custard was requested it was met with almost disbelief. More did come out but not really sufficient. Overall good experience and quite fairly priced.

    Very friendly attentive staff. Nice log fire. The food was good quality and lots to choose from.
    I live in Waddesdon and therefore got 20% off my meal (only mon-Thursday).
    I would recommend this pub.

    We went for a Valentines meal and was really surprised that not many couples were there for it. Our table was for 7.15 the young man who served us was attentive and keen to please. The food was lovely and very well presented. If I was going to pick fault then it would be the time it took to receive our meals. It took 45 minutes to get our starter and we began to think they had forgotten us. The main meal again took nearly the same amount of time. Considering it was not packed in the bar area and where we were they only had 4 tables the delays could not be explained. We did receive an apology from one of the ladies about the delays and perhaps a small drink on the house would of been I order but alas not. Overall our evening was really good and enjoyable.

    Nice Simple menu with all food delivered being well cooked, well presented and very tasty. All staff were very friendly and helpful. The pub had a relaxed and happy atmosphere. Will definitely be going again.

    Food was really good , service was excellent , ambience good , the only niggle was the 1/2 hour wait between the starter and main course , we'd lost our appetites a bit by the time all the lovely main arrived . Hopefully this was a one off , as we will definitely be going again.
