The Firecrest, a country pub in Aylesbury

We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you. 

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 beautiful gardens on the outskirts of Wendover, near Aylesbury.

Historians say that the infamous Highway Man also used to use the pub as a stop off!

Our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for savouring the hearty, seasonal pub-food on our menu, as well as the selection of hand-picked cask ales and fine wines served at our bar.

Whether you’re planning dinner with friends, Sunday lunch with the family or just a well-earned pint after taking your four-legged friend for a walk — book a table online and enjoy some quality time with those you love the most.

Our menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, as well as our seasonal dishes, and we’ll be ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, fine wines and British gin to suit very taste - which will taste all the better when enjoyed either in our beautiful gardens or by our crackling log fires.


Charming country pubs in lovely locations

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

If you’re lucky you might be able to spot a famous face or two when you visit us. Racing driver Jackie Stewart and Del Boy himself, David Jason, are frequent visitors.

Ghosts and ghouls are rumoured to visit us on occasion, Ian is our resident ghost – will you spot him on your visit?

For those interested in politics, you’ll be interested to know that Chequers, the Prime Minister’s residence is located very close to the pub!

RAF Halton is also close to us at The Firecrest, as are some truly beautiful walking routes, such as Wendover Woods and Coombe Hill.

Not only do we have a range of delicious food and drink at the Firecrest, but we’re also lucky enough to be surrounded by the stunning Chilton Hills, so there’s no shortage of beautiful views to appreciate.
