We have visited this pub for years. The view is unsurpassable. On a pleasant day, it's hard to beat. However . . . we recently went there for the first time since it changed hands. The new publicans are polite and friendly - the woman is particularly nice - but there are some things they ought pay attention to. One,... More

Fantastic views across the fields and tucked away in a quiet location. Great for a rambling circuit to build up an appetite and then good food and beer including real ale, Brakspears. Always busy, so wise to book ahead if you are in a group.

A lovely small pub with outstanding views of the Chilterns. Very helpful staff offering a good wine list, a small selection of real ale and a decent menu. My food (chicken and ham pie) was not special but OK, the calves liver was very popular and most were pleased with their dinner. If you order carefully you will get a... More

We've had a table for 10 booked for over a week with people travelling from a long distance to be there. At 6.15pm the night before they phone to say they can't do the table. Terrible service.

This is the second time we have visited this pub for Sunday lunch. Excellent food served in lovely surroundings, staff very friendly and the home made ice cream is to die for! Beautiful views outside. Would highly recommend.

Although we only popped in for a drink the location and views are tremendous. Red kites by the score and a nice choice of beers. They serve a good range of food and although we didn't eat the food looked good

I've been visiting the KW at Hailey ever since I had a driving licence, when the barrels, including Brakspears XXXX, were lined up behind the bar and you filtered the bits between your teeth. 44 years on, popped in for a meal with mum and the family and weren't disappointed. Food always well prepared and a good choice. If you... More
