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.

Where do I start ? Excellent cuisine, attentive staff, comprehensive menu, child friendly, great location. Stuart and his staff excelled themselves during our visit. We really couldn't have asked for any more. This was our second visit to Great Missenden, but our first to The Cross Keys. It won't be our last.

Visited early November 2016 for lunch, as a regular customer for decades, but I have to pass this on - under the current proprietor this fine establishment only seems to improve. Noticeable changes over the past year include overall improvements in decor and cleanliness, and the kitchen staff seem to have taken on board that the discerning customer is more... More
