The Firecrest in Wendover is a country pub oozing rural charm and rustic character. Our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for savouring the hearty, seasonal pub-food on our menu, and the carefully nurtured cask ales and fine wines gracing our bar.

Book a table online and enjoy a spot by our roaring log-fire. Or make the best of the British summertime by eating alfresco in our pretty beer garden.

The first pint served on the property was in 1827, although it only became The Firecrest pub in 1998. Originally known as The Half Way House, The Firecrest is situated in its own extensive gardens on the outskirts of Wendover, near Aylesbury.

The Firecrest, which served its first pint in 1827, is handy for visitors to The Buckinghamshire County Museum in Aylesbury, and there is an attractive walk along the Wendover Arm of the Grand Union Canal.

Overall a good evening but it started badly as I expected and I believe it was Open Tables fault, as our booking didn't appear at the Firecrest, but thankfully they had space for us.

The food was great value for money. The fixed price menu ensures that you can enjoy a three course meal and not spend through the roof. I would definitely recommend it.

when we went to the bar on our arrival, there were 2 members of staff, one behind the bar & one on our side of the bar, both were on their smart tablets, neither greeted us for about a minute & when we were acknowledged i wouldn't describe it as a warm & friendly greeting also we were told that they had no booking for us despite the fact that we had 2 confirmations of our booking from open table.
our food when it arrived (battered cod) turned out to be unsatisfactory, it wasn't cooked properly, it had uncooked floury batter inside, after pointing this out, we were given what we thought was a less than friendly apology & we were given a refund on one of the portions of fish.
we have eaten here before but in the evening, & we gave a glowing report of our experience at that time, sadly it was not repeated on this occasion, perhaps it's a lunchtime thing ? 🙁
