Steve of N21 left this review about The Falcon

The Falcon is a small picture postcard pub hidden away past trading estates and housing estates not far off the M40, a few miles south-east of High Wycombe, in Wooburn Green. Although in truth it is more located in an area known as Wooburn Marsh, (away from the pubs on the Wooburn Green itself), on part of the flood plain for the River Thames.
It is in the valley of the River Wye and this feature led to the water mills and paper-making becoming a very important industry around here. The last paper mill, Glory Mill, closed in recent years., but has given its name to the large trading estate off the A4094, which is probably the easiest way of finding The Falcon.
A fine stone building, internally the small space is in two sections either side of the central serving area. The first space is a great seating area with real fire and then the far space next to the garden is set to dining tables. There is a very pleasant beer garden outback, and an unusual feature is the row of stone fish ponds housing goldfish at the front of the pub.
A free house, there are four handpumps on the bar which usually support a good choice of regional and micro brewery beers. On my last visit Poachers trial from the Lincolnshire Micro brewery, Ringwood Old Thumper and Addlestone Cider were on three of the pumps with the 4th reverse clipped. And the Ringwood was a well kept pint.

If you don’t work in the Glory Mills estate or live very locally, then you will probably have to drive to this pub and one downside is the car park, which is quite small, although there’s enough space in the side streets around.
Certainly a recommended place to search out if you are in the area of J3 of the M40, but probably best done on a fine weather day when you can utilise the garden if the inside space is full.
