user reviews of Derehams Inn, Loudwater

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

This pub is tucked away up a narrow lane just off the A40 and very close to an M40 junction. You wouldn't know it was here, unless you'd been told. It has a lovely feel to it. Although the bar layout is a little awkward and difficult to access. 4 ales were on and they were from varied breweries - Brew Foundation Little Bitter That, Loddon Bamboozle, Fuller's London Pride & Arundel Castle. Dogs are certainly welcomed. There is an outdoor area at the rear.

The Derehams Inn is housed in a building that began life as two farm workers cottages in the 18th century, and keeps a very traditional English pub feeling with low ceilings, open fires in winter and, from the exposed ceiling beams, a collection of pewter jugs and horse brasses, and for this alone it is worth seeking out.
The internal one room L shaped space is quite small around a central bar serving area and is organised into a couple of comfortable and intimate areas and out back there is a very pleasant largely secluded beer garden.
On the ale front this is a Free house and there are three pumps on the bar. The regular ales are London Pride, Brakspear and Youngs bitter which are usually on two of the pumps , and then there is a rotating guest beer on the other. For my visit last week the Pride and Brakespears were supported by a Bitter from the Binghams brewery in Twyford.
Solid pub for a decent pint and well worth finding if you want to avoid going into High Wycombe (and no-one will blame you for that).

Very pleasant welcoming pub on the Wednesday night, free cake by the bar. 4 ales on, of which Loddon Chantry Cheer, Rebellion & Braks bitter were on. Worth an evening of anybody's time. Yards away from the bus routes on the Loudwater road..

Great selection of ever-changing real ales often from local breweries. 2 darts teams in the local league, seafood specials on a Sat night, new outdoor covered smoking area. They also had their 1st beer festival last month with 27 ales available.

This is a great traditional drinkers pub. Friendly staff and local clientele, well kept beer including guest ales. Food at lunchtime only, but free nibbles on the bar. Well worth a visit.
