“What a surprise!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

From the outside this looks just like your average local pub. There’s a decent outdoor garden in the back, and they’re nicely doggie-friendly. Good. First test passed. However, step inside and you will enter a different world, not as far as décor, which is definitely typical of a country pub, but it’s the food that surprises. Yes, many pubs offer up Thai food, but at the Churchill Arms this is the REAL deal. I know Thai cuisine very well indeed having frequented Thai restaurants all over the globe (includes Bangkok of course) and cooked Thai food quite extensively for over 20 years. This was truly authentic, with enough selection and variety to keep you wanting to return. The portions were huge so we of course managed to over order. The noodle dish- Lad Na Talay Seafood was especially memorable. What lovely, gracious service too. The owner was very helpful, providing us with tastes of a couple of the wines so that we could select what really worked with the food. Best of all, it was staggering distance from Long Crendon Manor, so we shall return next time we’re there for sure.

“Ok food very slow service”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

I was quite excited about trying this Thai restaurant since the reviews in trip advisor are so good.
We finally managed to go last Saturday and it was a disappointment.
The food was nice, but nothing espectacular and the service was really slow.
They told us it was because they had lots of take away orders. I am sorry but if you are a restaurant you need to attend your customers and if anyone prioritise your tables over your take away orders...
It was also quite expensive for what it was. The same food in p,entry of other Thai restaurants will be around £30 while we ended up paying £45.
I am afraid it is not worth another visit.
Will need to keep looking for another nice Thai restaurant in the area.
