Is the grub available in Beaconsfield up to the task?

The variety and quality/cost of take away and restuarant food in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire has changed considerably over the last decade, with many food businesses coming and going, partcularly pubs, although to be fair many have been replaced by decent restaurants.

Beaconsfield New Town used to have the legendy “Earl of Beaconsfield” public house (where Waitrose now is), and also the “Beech Tree” pub in Maxwell Road (now Vodka Revolution), whereas the Old Town has lost the Old Hare pub (now Zizi’s), the George Hotel (now the Crazy Bear), the Prince of Wales (now the Old Bengal Indian restauarnt) and the White Horse pub (now Loch Fyne).

The question is, have all the many changes over the last ten years improved the quality, choice and value for money of food and drink in Beaconsfield? Frankly, there is not a straightforward answer, as whilst the town has “lost” Santella, Bucks Tandoori, La Lanterna, it has gained Basmanti, Jungs and the Crazy Bear Thai restaurant. The answer is probably yes and no, as their have been some sad losses, but also some good additions.

If variety is the spice of life, then try “Alex’s” kebab van next to Nat West Bank in Beaconsfield New Town, which is open 7 days a week, often into the early hours at the weekend. If serves a decent burger and chips, and well as donor and chicken kebabs, and going by the hordes of young people hanging round the van, it offers good portions and value for money. Other take away options in the New Town include Jungs, Smiles Fish & Chips, Tao Chinese, Mumbai Spice and Subway.

Despite Beaconsfield not being a very large town, it does still have an awful lot of choice, both in terms of type of food and the standard of the fayre, which goes from adequate to excellent. So the bottom line is that while the grub available in Beaconsfield is up to the task, some of it is rather expensive to be able to afford to eat out more than once a week, be it at the excellent Spice Merchant or the never to be forgotten Crazy Bear, which has toilets which are shall we say……unique!!
