Dinner at the Black Boy, Oving

This pretty rustic pub in the quintessentially English village of Oving in the Bucks countryside is the perfect location for a romantic meal if you love great pub food. Their chefs have been working hard to create a special menu on February 14th to share with your loved one. If you're not into the formality of fine dining but enjoy good food, this could be the spot for you. If you arrive before dark, you can also enjoy the lovely views across the Aylesbury Vale from the back of the pub.


An Overnight Stay at Danesfield House Hotel

This luxury hotel on the outskirts of Marlow is the perfect venue for a romantic night away.

Taking place on February 18th (and again in September) meet their events team and wedding suppliers who know how to make the most of this lovely setting that oozes style and sophistication for your big day.
