Boasting spectacular views over the neighbouring woods and fields, The Firecrest is a tribute to the vintage British pub, serving seasonal cuisine in a rustic, brick and oak, building. The appealing ivy-enclosed walls are can be enjoyed from the al fresco beer garden, and the cosy log fire complements winter meals well.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Firecrest menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Firecrest ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Firecrest is only 4 minutes’ drive from Wendover Train Station, and 13 minutes from central Aylesbury.

    We akways enjoy the Firecrest but unfortunately apart from the lady waiting on our table the rest of the service was quite poor. Even though it was fairly quiet we had to wait ages for our drinks and food. The food was mediocre but we didn't feel as though we could complain as we had already mentioned about the long delays. We are hoping that this is just a one off as we go here at least twice a month but if we have a repeat of this service then I'm afraid we won't be going to the Firecrest again

    Staff were brilliant really polite and very obliging, couldn't do enough for us. Food was ok! Fish was a little oily and more batter than fish, but otherwise a lovely dinner. I go here regularly as it is always a nice place to eat.

    I had a lovely evening the food was really good especially the carrot cake cheesecake! The steak I had was perfectly cooked but the only thing I would say is that it could have done with being served with some vegetables. The service was really good and we were made to feel very welcome!

    In the past we have always enjoyed our visits to the Firecrest, but this visit was different. The service was slow, the new menu had very poor choices, the costs had escalated. We will be unlikely to return.

    Food and service excellent. Charlie, our server, was helpful, accommodating, amusing, knowledgeable and efficient. We chose from the specials and main menu all of which were served hot and speedily plus all were delicious. We had a good table in an enviable position which made the evening even more enjoyable.

    The new menu was disappointing.

    Caesar salad was delicious with salmon fillet. Prawns and scallops in butter and garlic prawns were overcooked and dish expensive for what it is was. Meal portions were good and well presented. Staff were friendly and attentive. Never rushed or pestered.

    I was very impressed with my roast beef dinner it's not very often to have one as good as home cooked dinner, really enjoyed it. Other 3 guests also enjoyed their meal. Service was excellent as it was very busy.
