Recently visited a few times over the Christmas period and had some really good food. I had the ribeye steak with a yummy mushroom sauce, the chicken supreme and my family has a chateaubriand which looked delicious, I will be having that next time! Highly recommend. Great atmosphere, friendly local pub.

Diappointing after a long walk to be served third rate food. Had to pre order which meant the restaurant knew what to cook. This gave them the opportunity to pre cook the selected food and then reheat it before serving. The result as far as the fish and chips was concerned was awful. Overcooked chewy fish, frazzled batter and soggy... More

Staff pleasant but food a total let down. Quantity over quality. Fillet steak sandwich was clearly not fillet but this was denied. It was thin tough and grisly. Plenty on the roast lamb plate but 3/4 of both were left. Pudding was good. Would not eat here again or recommend it. I'm happy to pay for good quality but there... More

We found this pub on our way out of Great Missenden. It looked very promising and I have to say we were all very hungry. The staff are very sweet and helpful. The service was good. Sadly the food was a let down. The lack of gluten free options on dishes that could very easily be gluten free was really... More

The Full Moon is a lovely pub and garden - and gave us a very pleasant and relaxed venue for a large gathering of family and friends. The hexagonal picnic tables and kids' play equipment allowed for pleasant conversation groups, and the food provided was most pleasant.

I only live a couple of miles away from this Pub and my family and friends who also live near by decided to walk here last Sunday (11th September). My wife and my son and I had the beef burgers as we had been to a party the night before and where in need of some grease to soak up... More

Having chosen my Fish Cake meal on a Monday lunchtime, the Menu said that it came [on the same plate] with a portion of chips. When it arrived the portion consisted of, wait for it, 4 whole chips. I was amazed and shocked that this would constitute a proper portion. To be fair, at least they weren't scrawny french fries... More

Had a great evening meal so went back for lunch a week later. Chose the Full Moon special lunchtime sandwich but was disappointed. A toasted sandwich for £6.00 with virtually nothing else (two slices of medium sliced bread) was overpriced. Not sure if I would bother with lunch there again!
