We booked a large family group, the table ran parallel to the bar, this meant that on a busy night those needing drinks had to continually push past us. The food was restaurant price but pub grub, the waiter did not know the difference between steak and venison when serving us. As a pub great, as a restaurant it needs... More

We all had different starters and main courses, but they were all served together and piping hot. This is a pub, not a restaurant, but the food offers good quality and... More

Description
We are situated in the heart of the picturesque Buckinghamshire village of Taplow, close to the historic river Thames, in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Whether you are just dropping in for a quick drink or are planning to have a meal, you can always expect a warm and friendly welcome and a place where you can relax and get away from the stresses and strains of daily life. Our extensive menus cover everything from a quick snack to three course meals. We also have a good selection of fine wines from which you can choose to complement your meal. In the summer months, you can, if you wish, eat alfresco on our lovely patio or in the garden. There are many places of historical interest nearby, including Cliveden House, former home of Lord and Lady Astor, which was infamously associated with the 'Profumo Affair'. Also of interest is St Nicholas church, which is in the village itself.
