The Five Elms is without doubt one of the finest places there is to eat and drink. The food is prepared to perfection by John, who is very passionate about what he does, and it shows in everything that is presented to you on a plate. You absolutely have to go there with an empty stomach if you intend to... More

We researched tripadvisor to find a good restaurant when attending the Bucks County Show near Aylesbury.The Five Elms at Weedon came up number 1 in the area, we took this recommendation and arrived for lunch before going on to the show, all the good things that have been said about this pub are true, the pub itself is a lovely...

Seventeen of us went to the five elms after Bucks Show and we had a very enjoyable evening. The pub was very busy but john still managed to produce superb food. We had an excellent meal and we all congratulate john on serving seventeen people with different choices off the menu with good tasty hot food. Carol as usual, so... More

We visited Aylesbury for the evening after going to Bletchley park. The Five Elms was highly rated on trip advisor ad deservedly so. It's set in a beautiful village, the service was very welcoming, honest and relaxed. The food was to an exceptional standard. I'd highly recommend and would definitely revisit if I am ever in the area again.

It is not one of the best ever for a Restaurant - but it is certainly one of the best for high class pub restaurant meals. So good that we have been many times. Very good food (try John's own special potted shrimps - nothing like the normal ones - delicious) - a sensibly limited menu of excellent dishes. Very... More

My friend and I called in at the Five Elms to enjoy a well deserved lunch. John and Carol were the nicest of hosts and John cooked a divine steak for us both, with home made chips, mushrooms, tomatoes and garden peas. The pub is so pretty, with pots of summer flowers and hanging baskets. It has a pretty intimate... More

We have been here several times and never had any criticism of the food, service or overall experience. Excellent hosts make you feel very much at home and the food is always truly excellent. Starters were super, mains equally the same, puds the same - so what more can you wish for?
