Work with us

The home of premium d’rinking and d’ining in the heart of Chalfont St Giles.


Located opposite the village green and with a garden that nestles between the River Misbourne and the Parish church, you will be hard-pushed to find a better location to relax, unwind with friends or colleagues during the week, or a weekend treat with those close to you.


With an all-fresh-food restaurant and a uniquely-designed bar (serving hand-crafted beers and Mission wines from New Zealand), we are always here for you.


We don't really know why Merlin's Cave is our name.  It might be that John Milton once drank in this 17th century beer house and named us after a local landmark, or that there is magic and mystery in this old building and its open fires, chalk, candle wax, oak and ochre.  Either way, we team look forward to welcoming you to our very own "Paradise Found"!
