Good pub in old part of Chesham. Quite small but enough nooks and crannies to escape the locals. Good ale and food ok. Pretty average as pubs go but on the upper edge.

Lovely olde world feel to this traditional English village pub. "Express Lunch" was two courses for £7.50. Choice of starter and a main. Thai or curry. Great value. My main was crispy beef. Excellent. Or you can choose from an extensive menu or Chef's specials. Mainly Thai, and all looked good. Medium glass of Malbec £5.50 but I suppose that's... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely review. We are so glad you enjoyed your visit. Our wines are exclusive and of a high standard so hopefully you felt worth the price, but like your advise of buying a bottle. More cost effective of course. Thank you again and hopefully see you soon Megan More

We visit Chesham to see my partners parents and this place is where we stop off on our way back! Very friendly staff and the most amazing thai food ever- we live in Essex and drive here just to eat the lovely food. I have eaten in the restaurant part of the pub but prefer the tables in the bar... More

I have visited this pub on and off over the last forty-five years, in which time it has hardly changed at all. The addition of the Thai Restaurant in what I believe was an old stable block, is the only major change I've noticed. My favourite bar within this building has a huge open fire, dark wood panelling, a copious... More

Love this place. It's like being in someone's house with a bar plonked right in the middle. It does get very, very busy at usual peak times. The beer is good, the food is excellent. Service is ok. A young crew who do their best but aren't natural customer orientated but but polite. Be aware that at peak times food... More

We went to our favourite Chesham pub last night greatly anticipating the usually delicious thai food that they serve. The starter was great ( we had the vegetarian platter) but unfortunately the same could not be said about the main meals. They were served tepid on cold plates, with elements missing from the plates (no nuts or lime on the... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review.

I came here with three friends and were originally told it was owned by the same owners as jasmine Thai but the waitress confirmed this wasn't true. To start we ordered; spring rolls, duck, spring rolls and chicken satay. For our mains I had the chicken with cashews and coconut rice. My boyfriend had the chicken green Thai curry and... More

Great service and food. There is a 15% discount if you pay in cash which was very well received. Would have been good if this had been advertised but no complaints

We booked upstairs for our old school reunion on Saturday evening, food was plentiful and tasty, and they seemed to understand that we hadn't seen each other for nearly 40 years, so they let us chat away after dinner and didn't ask us to leave until it was pretty late, which was much appreciated.

Two of us went for lunch one day - pub has a very nice, traditional, interior and a decent selection of beers and ales (it's a Fullers pub, so mostly their produce). A very impressive and extensive Thai menu, but very little else - and when you don't want a full Thai meal for lunch you are left with little... More
