After an interesting circular walk exploring the village in a bitterly cold wind we were glad to have a fireside lunch at the Cross Keys. Service was excellent. The staff were so helpful and accomodating to two elderly gents. We ate in the bar area as we only needed light bites but the restaurant looked welcoming and low key and... More

Sunday lunchtime, only a couple of weeks before xmas and we had a great meal. Attentive, prompt service in a clean attractive environment, we enjoyed 3 veggie meals. We had two roasted butternut squash which my wife and friend said was excellent, and a home made meat (chicken in this case) pie which looked and apparently tasted great and I... More

This was a nice pub although the food could have been better. I had pheasant which was burnt and felt rushed and my husband had roast beef which came with all different coloured veg, making us think fresh has been added to old. Also they add their own service charge. This place would benefit from a smaller menu as I... More

Quirky old pub, with good atmosphere, excellent ale and very good grub at reasonable prices. A great find.

We came here for a family meal on a Friday evening- the pub is always busy but it just adds to the atmosphere and it's general charm. We had the goats cheese pizzas which were very good and burgers with chunky chips. The prices are very reasonable and it's a good safe bet for dining out in Missenden.

Beautiful old pub but clean and warm (not always the case with old pubs.) Menu was straight forward and had a good selection of food. The food itself was all cooked to a high standard and the service from the waiting staff was first class. Will definitely be back.
