About Us

 The Highwayman Inn lies in the tiny hamlet of Exlade Street, nestled in the Chiltern hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Formerly called The Greyhound, it dates back from the 16th century. The hamlet used to be larger, but it is known that two houses burnt down in the early part of last century. The Exlade Street blacksmith’s forge previously stood in the car park of the Highwayman Inn and several large barns existed for the storage and working of wood from the local area.

The Highwayman Inn is a warm welcoming pub. Madalin and his team of fantastic chefs deliver a passion for simple yet delicious homemade food matched by attentive friendly service with roaring fires and a relaxed atmosphere with or without your four legged friend.

The Turpin room, our private dining area is capable of holding up to 50 guests, with the option of exclusively hiring out the whole pub for up to 100.

Canapés, sit down three course menus or buffets, whatever your requirement. Give Lou a call for a chat.

With three great local ales and a range of international lagers our cosy bar is perfect for a break in cycling or walking exploring the local bridle ways and footpaths.

You can also email the restaurant directly to book a table.

Our Proper Takeout collaborations!

Our pop up’s are a fusion between Proper Takeout and The Highwayman.

Our brilliant team of live in staff enjoy a Monday off, we wanted to open 7 days a week so we came up with the idea of a pop up.

Highwayman Lou with James and Nick from proper take out have worked together previously for years building a fantastic working relationship with great food and drink inspiration combined with excellent work ethics.

It’s been an exciting and fun adventure doing our Monday pop ups, with great support from our regulars and guests further afield.

‘The best pizzas outside Italy’ was a quote from one of our Italian guests.
