Sunday brunch

We arrived and were surprised to find it so busy on a Sunday morning. The coffee was lovely and the food was good, if a bit oily, however we waited a long time to be served (we ended up going to the bar), and a long time for our food to arrive (approximately 60 mins). However, to give the staff... read more

Visited several times now over the past few months to give the place a chance to improve on service. The food is excellent, local sourced product and extremely tasty. Where they let themselves down is in the time it takes to produce your meal.....average wait time 30 mins but this can be extended to 60 mins at least in busy... More

I always come here for great food and coffee! My go-to in Buckingham when I'm in town for lunch! Menu fits any mood I'm in! :)

I popped into fireside this afternoon (16th November 2014) to take my girlfriend out for her birthday and unfortunately this is not the first time we have had a bad experience with service, yet forgivingly we always seem to give it one last chance. On entry we were greeted and told to take a seat whilst menus were brought over,... More

We stopped off for lunch with family in Buckingham. We've eaten at the Fireside before and know the food is always freshly cooked and tasty. I spoilt my diet and had fish and chips, generous portion. Hubby and daughter in law had jacket spuds with fillings (they didn't taste boiled) and my son had BLT which included a very generous... More

A group of 4 of us stopped here after staying overnight at a nearby hotel and on visiting the supermarket within walking distance found that they no longer provided breakfast unless we wanted a sausage roll for £3!!! So we decided to head into town and came across this little gem. We sat outside as the weather was pleasant and... More

Popped in for a quick lunch and ended up having the all day breakfast. It was fantastic. The locally sourced sausages were full of flavour, the bacon was cooked to my liking (extra crispy), the poached eggs were magnificent. My wife had American pancakes, maple syrup and bacon. I also tried them, they were the best we have tasted outside... More

This place could be so much better! It has a good location and good menu - we went fur breakfast and the choice was extensive. The quality of the breakfast was more of a 'very good' BUT... So many staff, wandering around, no apparent person in charge, forgotten requests and just so slow!! Our food took a very long time!... More

Other reviews have mentioned the slow service - I certainly wouldn't come here if I was in a hurry but I would prefer to wait an extra 10 minutes to eat the kind of delicious and obviously fresh lunch I enjoyed here rather than have bad food rushed to me. We enjoyed a generous and tasty salad that didn't skimp... More

I took my husband here for a birthday breakfast with our toddler. It was a nice day so we sat outside, which was lovely. We were advised straight away that the wait on food was 30 minutes, which was fine, I don't mind waiting if we are told. The breakfast was fantastic and well worth the wait. I had a... More
