Nice good quality food

Me and my partner come here oftern as its close by. The food is always of good quality with lots of choice. Its nice inside in the winter and great in the summer to sit outside by the canal.

Lovely pub in a beautiful setting with a good selection on draft and amazing food at a reasonable price. Best calamari we've ever had!

As a regular customer I would like to thank Mick and his team for a great meal in a " child free" environment which was good value for money It is great to be able to sit and have a meal without noisy children running about out of their " parents "control. More places should have child free areas. THANK... More

What a fantastic little Jewel in the heart of the Chilterns I cannot praise this pub enough the local beer is well kept, the food is well presented and tasty and the addition of canal views and a nice play area makes it my first choice for lunch with the family Keep doing what you do. !

We visit here quite regularly with our three young children aged 5,4 and 3 as they absolutely love the outdoor play area. It's a gorgeous spot by the canal, peaceful with lovely walks. Plenty of parking and the place is spotless with a lovely garden. My main complaint is the menu. For a pub/restaurant that arguably has one of the... More

Hi I have just read your recent review of our pub, and myself, and can only apologise for the shortfalls in our offer. If you felt the need to leave such a review then clearly we have failed in some way, and for that I am genuinely sorry. I do however make no apologies for the menu.We have always offered... More

The staff were so friendly and very accommodating. With a very fussy other half, the staff who helped us order were more than happy to make changes to what she wanted. There's a great range of food on the menu with and equally extensive range of drinks. With such a great looking, clean pub, I can't recommend this place more!... More

This is an understandably popular canal side pub. Very clean including the toilets; lots of tables inside and out but very busy on a winter's Sunday lunchtime. OK for two but book if you need a larger table. Service was prompt and friendly. We wanted a light lunch so ordered two fishcake starters and a bowl of chips. The homemade... More

We had Sunday lunch in the Grand Junction Arms for about the 5th time this winter. The reason we keep going back? Consistency ... In my experience Sunday roast is the one meal that we all feel we know a lot about .... Is it actually that hard to get right? I have had enough bad meals to know its... More

This pub is a real gem. We love popping here when we are in the area. Home made soup is a real treat with a lovely crayfish sandwich. Lovely place for a walk or let the children play on the swings outside. Lots of parking fabulous ... Go you won't be disappointed!

Visited here last night for a family celebration, happy to accommodate us all and a 2 year old. Food took a little while longer than we would expect to come but was lovely and the staff were apologetic about that. Venison had a great flavour, fishcakes were raved about by 2 of our party, steak, fish and chips, crab linguine... More
