West Wycombe was owned by the Dashwood family until the Wall Street Crash in 1929 forced them to sell it. It was bought by the Royal Society of Arts which, in 1934, after extensive repairs, handed the village, including the 14th-century inn, over to the National Trust, its owner ever since. In the mid-18th century, it was Francis Dashwood who excavated the notorious Hellfire Caves. The inn was once a hideout for highwaymen stalking travellers between London and Oxford; indeed, one unfortunate guest, robbed and murdered here, is rumoured to haunt its corridors today. Ever-reliable real ales include St Austell Tribute and Hook Norton Hooky Gold, and draft lagers too. Gins almost span the alphabet from Bathtub to Warner Edwards rhubarb. The varied menu offers freshly prepared dishes cooked to order such as home-made sweet potato, chickpea and herb falafel with tzatziki; chargrilled rare breed Dexter beefburger with applewood smoked Swiss cheese, and other grills; sharing platter of fresh mussels, cod goujons and salt and pepper squid; and seafood and prawn linguine with white wine velouté. All fish used comes from sustainable sources. A small range of sandwiches includes classic toasted club – chargrilled chicken, crispy bacon, egg, tomato and lettuce.
