This pub is situated a mile or so out of Wendover and a similar distance from the village of Weston Turville both of which have a choice of drinking establishments and there are only a few houses in the immediate area so effectively no local trade. It was having to cater for the dining trade to exist but has closed on more than one occasion. Although I haven't been in there much in recent times I drive past quite often and yesterday I noticed that there had been a serious fire leaving only the outer shell standing. It will need a complete rebuild and therefore I suspect unlikely to reopen as a pub. It's a shame as it was actually quite a nice place but always struggled to attract sufficient clientele despite a succession of different proprietors.

Have given this pub the benefit of the doubt again and again but it still comes up short. Been for 4 meals here now and, to be honest, I won't give it anymore chances. Dreadful service from disinterested teenage lad the last. He spent ages chatting with his mates and ignoring customers. Brought our food out with no cutlery -
Politely asked him for some knives and forks and he never came back!

Food isn't great. Time before last the burger was cold and raw. sunday roast was stringy beef meat and table next to us complained as veg was so hard they couldn't get a fork into it.
Has had a big makeover and is trying to present itself as a fancy gastropub but it's really not even close to being that. I really wouldn't bother again.

PUB IS NOW CALLED - 'VILLAGE GATE'

outside, the building is beuatifull, although it suffers from a busy road being directly in front of it. if you are able to get the outside seating thats tucked away out of view of the road then its nice, otherwise... your view is a main road.

inside, this place is clearly trying to be as upmarket as possible. its all very modern and bright, with very trendy paint scheme and fittings. not usually what i like in a pub, but they do seem to have gotten this trendy feel right.

ales and beers were suprisingly very good, and some interesting varities too.

all in all, if i feel the need to go somewhere a bit fancy pants, then this is where i'd choose... but that doesnt happen often.

As mentioned below: now called THE VILLAGE GATE. Not been here for a couple of years owing to it's nowhere position between Wendover and Weston Turville. Very pleasant pub to be in, refurbished very well. Certaintly a gastro but plenty of space to drink in & on this Wednesday most of the pub to drink in. 3 ales: Black Sheep, London Pride & GK IPA. I tried the Black Sheep which was fine. Worth keeping an eye on the beers as they were often poor under previous mangement.
