WELCOME TO The Firecrest IN Wendover


A country pub near you oozing rural charm and rustic character.

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.



There’s always a great reason to visit The Firecrest.

At The Firecrest we’re proud to cater for any and all needs, which is why offer a range of menus to suit all dietary requirements, including vegetarian menu options, such as our Vegan menu, which is available 6 days a week.

Our cosy and welcoming country interiors ooze rural charm accentuated by a fireplace often lit in the colder months and during the evenings.

If a pint of hand pulled ale is what you’re craving, then we’re stocked with a great range of beers from Doom Bar to more local cask ales like Old Thumper and Razor Back from Ringwood Brewery. And, as an added bonus CAMRA members get 20p off their perfectly poured pint… making it taste all the better!
