I'll try and keep it short. The Ribeye was mostly sinew - really bad cut of meat at a premium price. The crumble did crumble, but had to be sent back to be re-microwaved as the centre was still cold. The service was lacking - only managed to order two drinks for the entire meal. Bottom line is the meal... More

Excellent welcome, service and food. Welcomed and shown to our table promptly and offered drinks. Although early spring, the garden looked clean and comfortable

I used to drink in this pub many years ago. It was a good old fashioned place. Now it is a gastropub and a very good one. We went for a birthday lunch and it was a delight. The service was great and the food exceptional from an extensive menu. It really is worthy of high praise.

The Wavendon Arms never fails to delight us, every time we visit. The welcome from behind the bar is the same no matter how busy they are. The choice of food is fabulous - even when we have the fussier members of our family with us! And the presentation and taste of the food is second to none. We love... More

The Wavedon Arms is more of a restaurant with a small pub area at the front. It is very popular - so pre booking is advised - particularly when the sun shines as it has a popular outside area and the back of the restaurant has french doors which open out onto the garden. You can be sure of a... More

Great surroundings, good food but slightly overpriced. Service definitely needs improving as the waiter seemed only to have a second to take your order. A more personal touch would have made the evening fabulous rather than feeling like a conveyor belt.

who died 8 years ago! The food is pretty good, the decor and general environment is really nice, but the speed at which anything leaves the kitchen is spectacularly slow.
