Rightly on CAMRA's historic pub interios register,this pub is accessed by narrow Chiltern lanes, has elements from the 13th century and a wealth of features. It's on a large L shaped plot carefully extended over the centuries to create a large interior.The entrance from the large carpark through the pub garden has a magnificent feature to one side of a vast curved barrel devide with a small door set into the barrel shape giving access to a charming snug.The quarry tiled corridor winds to the bar,wood panelled and traditional.Low beams abound,there are small dining tables,some in pew design before reaching the King Charles room which extends to the right.This has a barn style vaulted roof but also lots of nooks and crannies with some alcove dining tables.High in the rafters are stuffed animals ,standards and other old ephemera,just dialled back enough to avoid looking touristy.Due to Covid restrictions I couldnt explore the left sided candle room sadly.

There is extensive external seating around the whole exterior and the overall Jacobian feel is very authentic.Although there is a hamlet surrounding the pub and the housing of Forty Green isnt far away,most punters arrive by car and will be looking to dine.The menu is not overlong with pies and sausages prepared on the premises and proper cooking takes place.Prices are at a premium due to the surroundings with a median main £18 and nothing under £13,quality was good.Similarly all real ale £5 with what appears to be a permanent range of Chiltern Pale (NBSS 3).Brakspear Gravity,Windsor & Eton Conqueror Black IPA,Rebellion IPA and Roasted Nuts.A decent selection of Locales,there are also artisan ciders,and some interesting bottles including Owd Rodger which used to feature on draught.
For history this is a must visit,choose a quiet time and explore.Make sure you have charged your wallet beforehand!

One of those "must visits". Steve's description below still stands, and it seems another extension is being built out the back. Service was a bit corporate, the Chiltern Pale top notch. We doubled the number of customers on a Thursday afternoon, though after-work types soon started arriving. Judging by the size of the car park I suspect it's a nightmare at popular times.

Do make the effort to visit this Camra heritage pub - and it makes a much better stop than the nearby services on the M40.

We visited here on the 5th of January, so there was definitely no worries about the pub being overwhelmed by tourists. We got here for lunch and have to say what a treat that was, our meals were outstanding. Mrs A went for the Fish Pie and I went for the daily special, which was the Cottage Pie.
There were six ales on handpump, Chiltern Pale Ale, Marlow IPA, Windsor & Eaton Guardsman, Windsor & Eaton Conqueror, Britannia Amber Ale and Marston's Owd Roger. We went for the Chiltern Pale Ale, which was in excellent shape and deserved a second pint.
We found a nice spot near the bar area, which was a very cosy snug area with a roaring log fire. It's a good walk from the station to get here or if you're feeling flush, you can get a taxi at the station, which only cost £5. Press the free call button at the train station and your taxi is there in a few minutes.
