If you are seeing a show at the Wycombe Swan Theatre, then why not soak up the atmosphere first with a pre-show supper in the Theatre Cafe and Bar. It
opens two hours before the performances start (1.5 hours on Sundays), so you will have plenty of time. Or perhaps a Murder Mystery Dinner in the Oak Room might appeal: here you act as detective in
solving a case whilst enjoying your meal, in a blend of scripted drama and improvisation
If you would like a Sunday Lunch and relax in the gardens come to the Clifton Lodge Hotel.If not book your birthday
dinner. All events catered for from weddings to births.(Tel 01494 440095)
If you have visited Wycombe Sports Centre to help get rid of some excess weight, you will be glad to know that you need not faint with hunger or thirst as there is a cafe and licensed bar there
to help you re-fortify yourself.
Suppose for a moment that you were about to visit an establishment called Burgers. You would probably already have formed a fixed idea about the type of cuisine on offer. If, however, the
establishment in question happened to be in Marlow, you would be in for a surprise and probably a treat as this one is a Swiss-style confiserie, chocolatier and tearoom.
If you like to get out and about the Buckinghamshire countryside, you might like to call in at a pub to eat. More and more pubs are serving proper meals, as it is now accepted that this forms
probably the most important part of their trade, particularly so for the more out of the way houses. Lets start with the George & Dragon Hotel in West Wycombe. This is a Grade II listed
building, which is situated in a village surrounded by National Trust land, and it has a collection of old prints and china. There is a daily changing menu of specials on a blackboard and a fixed menu on
the tables. The cuisine is basically English, with perhaps one or two dishes from further afield.
The Red Lion in Coleshill has a choice of bar snacks for those who like to watch their figures, and a blackboard menu for those with healthy appetites. The food is simple but good, with a
traditional roast on Sundays.
Right in the centre of High Wycombe at the Cornmarket is The Falcon, which is part of the JD Wetherspoon empire. Following the tried formula of no Muzak, no loud fruit machines, good prices, it provides a
reasonable range of meals at reasonable prices. You even get a till receipt to help you double check the arithmetic!
