I was told that there were no options for someone who has diary, egg, soya and nut allergies. Even the sausage sandwich is no good. We have visited lots of places and it is unusual that my grandson can have nothing (except a jacket potato...More

Thanks for your review of the Café. I’m sorry that we were unable to offer your grandson anything satisfactory for lunch when you visited. We do try to have a range of options on offer, and can always make something bespoke if ordered in advance....More

Really lovely little cafe, nice atmosphere, friendly staff and the scones are the best I’ve had. We’ll definitely be returning.

Visited with a friend. Not a lot of vegetarian savoury options. So ended up having a scone with cream and jam which was great.

Popped in the cafe for lunch while at the museum. Really enjoyed my sandwich and the scone with cream and jam was amazing! The kids boxes are a nice touch too. Found the prices really reasonable for its location

Although attached to the Roald Dahl museum the cafe is accessible for non visitors as it is on the high street itself. Good selection of food and drinks. The matcha cake was delicious and so was the scone with butter and jam. Small cafe with...More

Delicious. Visited with my 10 year old, enjoyed Danish pastries and tea in the main cafe in the morning and then returned at lunch time for sandwiches and cakes. Unfortunately due to the small size of the cafe it was full to brim at lunch,...More

The Cafe at the Roald Dahl Museum is based in Great Missenden, Bucks. You don't have to visit the Museum to enjoy the cafe, but combined they do make a brilliant treat! We serve freshly prepared sandwiches, jacket potatoes, soup and paninis, hot food and specials in our cosy café. A visit isn't complete, though, without something sweet - try the Bogtrotter chocolate cake, scones, cupcakes and slices - delumptious! We have a lovely courtyard to enjoy on sunny days and we're a great place for walkers and cyclists (we have plenty of space in the courtyard for bikes, and lots of local routes and trails in the Chiltern Hills). All ingredients are freshly prepared and we will try our best to meet any special requirements so please ask at the counter. Gluten free meals are available on request.
