This claims to be the oldest pub in Britain, dating back to the 1100s. There is a small bar in the corner with a long lounge with a cantilever roof and loads of old timbers, some decorated with dried hops. There was a good choice of real ale and the lounge was reasonably comfortable.

This pub is very much aimed at the tourist trade but the quality of the ale is not in dispute. Slightly overpriced but no more than you would expect. A visit here is an experience, may not be not to everyone's taste but one of those pubs we all should try at least once.

This pub seems to divide opinions so my experience as a first time user are :-

Visited on a Thursday Lunchtime. About 20 other folk in the place. Very "Olde Worlde" appearance - you can imagine what it's like without actually going there - beams, stone floors, black paint, etc.
Good range of ales and lagers - had Windsor & Eton Conqueror on tap so no further choice making needed for me.
An inexperienced East European lady serving thought that the S&K Pudding I ordered was a Sticky Toffee Pudding ! A little more training in food and English needed here.
Food was quite pricey but said S&K Pudding was very good so no moans there. One of the specials was Beef Wellington at £25 - that's something you don't see everyday.
Conqueror was £3.80 a pint - again a little pricey but I've paid more.

I found the RSOE to be what I expected - touristy, a bit pricey but a good atmosphere and well worth a visit.

I enjoyed the 6 hours I spent here, however, I recently heard that the whole story surrounding the pub is a massive con.

It was bought by an Australian a few years ago, and it's all a big marketing ploy. The bloke sold up before it was exposed, and the new owners are forced to live this lie.

Despite claiming to have be a freehouse for 800 years, it was only granted a licence to serve alcohol from the late 19th century.

The Royal Standard, located in possibly the most difficult to get to place in the whole of Britain is one of my favorite pubs ever.

If you want atmosphere, history, good drink, good food and somewhere to chat then this is the place for you. If you like to hide in a corner and relax with a pint and the paper or a book then this is the pub for you. I'm not going to lie, I feel that it is a pricey establishment, but not so when compared to the other pubs in the local area. This is Buckinghamshire, and if you can find The Standard then you may have just found the last homely house.
