user reviews of the Sugar Loaf Inn, Little Chalfont

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

really happily suprised by this place. nice wooden pannelled bar area, which is kept seperate from the eating areas, so it actually feels like a pub. plenty of outdoor seating and great service too. not a bad place for a pint every now and again.

It was a trendy bar under the previous management with a lively sophisticated atmosphere. Unfortunately since the Sugar Loaf has turned back into a pub it lacks atmosphere. The pub does not offer any live sport which is what I would expect from a pub, and prices are higher than other local pubs in the area. Often only a few locals go in, and there are better options in the area for a night out.

Two years ago this was a lively, smart gastro pub serving good fresh food, at slightly expensive prices, plenty of customers, the menu regularly changed and there were 3 real ales on.
Went in today and the place looks tired, unloved and lacking in atmosphere, only 10 people in, it has a bland plastic covered menu very average food and only one real ale on.
Was good, could be good again, but won't be if today is anything to judge it by.

Art Deco design of the '30s, reburbished in the current minimalist style. Not for you if you want beams, chintz and patterned red carpets. They have first class chefs and the quality of their food is first class in the gastro pub league.
The dining room can be hired for functions - I held a family/friends lunch there for 25 people and the food, wine and service from planning to table was first class.
Highly recommended.
Note they have a car park at the back which is not immediately obvious - if you can find the secret route to it!

EXCELLENT FOOD!! The new head chef, Mike, has got an amazing new menu lined up. Used to be a right dump a few years back but has now been transformed by the new owners.
It's a bit overpriced, but worth it for the great atmosphere.

An amzing transformation from the old pub, great atmosphere, good attentive staff and a tasty new menu, which is good value for money.

Actually crowded when I visited. 1930s building with oak panneled interior and large chunky wooden tables. Pub is squeezed in between the railway and the local tyre centre, so hardly prepossessing location. Good choice of ales and food was pretty good too. Not as upmarket as I had expected, although it is difficult to categorise the customers who looked quite a mixed bunch to me.
Overall impression is that, whilst it is a greatly improved pub, it just isn't that brilliant and I would be ambivalent about going there again. Like being savaged by a sheepdog.

yep upmarket snooting feeling, with no atmosphere ,the old clientelle as "pikey" as they were ,still made that place exactly why everyone loved it, was expensive then ,,, with people in it , now still expensive but as empty as the "new" pineapple"!!!!!!!!!

Recent remodel and new ownership have done wonders... Really nice staff, remembered my name a month later after just one short visit. Treat my kids really nice and even extended me credit when I was a wee bit short. The food is excellent and the main attraction but a bit pricey. Very convenient to the train/tube station, decent garden, very nice interior from recent remodel. No TV, no games, but a very pleasant place for a beer with some friends and a great meal.

Now called The Sugar Loaf Inn it's convenient for the tube station if a bit expensive. The food is supposed to be very nice. A renovation has done away with the pool table, telly etc. and it's now a rather upmarket-feeling 'gastropub'.
