This pub on the edge of Brill common serves very good food. It is less intimate than The Hundred. A very good place for lunch as well as dinner.

Cafe 94 Waddesdon is a friendly cafe with great coffee, cakes and some nice unusual treats (I love their granola with yoghurt and coulis) - if you are visiting Waddesdon manor take a walk out of the entrance gates (the gold ones you enter the estate through) and go here rather than spending more inside!

Sightseeing
National Trust owned Rothschild manor - loads of history, lots to do. Quite commercial now - you park, catch a bus up to the manor etc. but a good day out and they often have special events. You can walk to Waddesdon from Pollicott over the fields it is about 4 miles each way.

A smaller National Trust property - home of the Verney family with connections to Florence Nightingale. A less commercial experience than Waddesdon Manor. Has a nice coffee shop and restaurant.

For London, if you are on a budget drive to Hillingdon via M40 and get a one day 1-6 travelcard which gives you unlimited travel on London Transport Underground, Overground and Buses (and I think you get a discount on the River Buses too).
