We are Brandon and Matteo.
We are fortunate to have grown up to embrace our heritage through the food and wine culture of both our countries,
South Africa & Italy.
We fell in love with The Great British pub culture, and now we are excited for you to enjoy some of Buckinghamshire's finest
food and drinks.
Brandon's grandmother always lays a spare seat at the table for the "weary traveller". She says that one day someone may knock on the door in need of a good meal. We have taken on this tradition, only we have set out an extra 60 odd seats.
During your visit, you are also bound to meet our handsome Bullmastiff, Cairo.
He runs a tight ship and ensures that the fire is always lit.
Pop in and say hi!
Brandon & Matteo

It is our belief that seasonal food is fresher, tastier and more nutritious. We are passionate about serving the highest quality food to our guests and, working alongside the natural availability of food is the best way to guarantee this.
We carefully source our ingredients and aim to ensure that our supplier's standards and sustainability run alongside the ethos of The Chandos. It is also important to us to support local farmers and growers to give back to our community.
We are fortunate enough to be surrounded by a wealth of local produce and source only the best.
Our local butcher, John, supplies us with premium cuts from Buckinghamshire farmers. Our free-range eggs are laid only a stone's throw away and we pride ourselves in some of the fresh fruit, veggies, and herbs that our kitchen garden has to offer.
Our fishmonger ensures that our catch of the day is caught sustainably and in the least impactful way on the ocean. We truly believe that this is the way forward, seasonal, local, and sustainable.
Food is the soul of our restaurant.
We are not looking for eccentricity, or looking to land on the moon. Our goal is to cook good food and have our guests wanting more.
We revamp old classics with a contemporary touch. Our cuisine is modern British and proudly influenced by our origins.
"I have been taught to handle food with humility and to follow the natural beauty and taste of each product. We strive to respect all our ingredients from the moment they arrive in our kitchen, right until they are served to our diners. Our food is predominantly farm-to-table in our effort to ignite an appetite for local produce."
