We were at the Museum up the road and as it was half term the museum cafe was heaving! We had nowhere to go with children aged one, four and six. Although this looked like a place I would eat, it in no way looked like somewhere that would welcome the grandchildren but we were despirate! We were given a... More

we found this place by Tripadvisor as somewhere near the Roald Dahl museum. Initially slightly sceptical, based on the decor. Food was great. Lovely flavours. Cooked fresh, as the chefs could remove chilli from one of the dishes we ordered. Would defintely go again

Large cocktails that the barista took attention to garnish with fresh juices was followed by warm bread complete with scattered sundried tomatoes and olive oil and balsamic dip. My favourite dish was the rabbit which had a rich sauce of lentil and sherry that just went so well with the smoky bacon. Their potato bravas is a classic rich tomato... More

The staff were attentive and friendly, the food was great and the overall experience was wonderful. Personally liked everything on the menu. Nice to have a place to park which can be tricky on High Street in Great Missenden

We had the Mediation Buckinghamshire Christmas lunch here in December 2015 and December 2016. Both occasions were very pleasant although the room was a little small for the lunch in 2015. Although the space is fairly limited in the private dining area, we were made very welcome and the food was very good.

There should be more places like Origins.......a place that has excellent atmosphere, great service, a pleasing ambience, superb cocktails and a fun selection of food. You don't feel as though you are in a chain, you don't feel you are in a fine dining establishment but you do feel you are in a place where you can enjoy yourself and... More

This is my third time to visit this restaurant but is already one of my favourite local restaurants. It is a small and intimate venue but has the most amazing tapas. It is not the cheapest restaurant but is worth every penny. The best dish by far is the scallops, followed by the pork belly. Perfect for sharing. The wine... More

We loved this restaurant. It was our first time tonight and we would definitely return. Service was good, cocktails nice - my husband loved his G&T! But the food was fantastic - particularly loved the rabbit and chorizo.
