Haddenham is a picturesque village southwest of Aylesbury and 4 miles northeast of Thame in neighbouring Oxfordshire. Haddenham is known for its ponds which were used for breeding Aylesbury ducks. Breeding has been revived recently on the pond in front of the parish church. Michael Anthony Estate Agents in Haddenham have put together this guide to highlight the variety of things to do in this historic village.
Haddenham restaurants, pubs and amenities
There are two pubs in Haddenham – The King’s Head and The Rising Sun. The King’s Head is a beautiful country pub with a great menu. The Rising Sun is a cosy pub with an impressive alcohol selection. Three former pubs are now restaurants: House of Spice (Indian, formerly The Crown), The Rose and Thistle (Chinese), and Twist at the Green Dragon.
There are three cafés for you to enjoy in Haddenham, including Little Italy at the station that serves up delicious coffee and baguettes. Norsk at Fort End is owned by the same team behind Little Italy and produces everything from scratch using a wide range of fresh, seasonal and local produce to create simple, often Nordic-inspired dishes bursting with colour and flavour. Tickety Brew on the Parade serves themed menus and afternoon teas.
Haddenham also has a butcher, a baker, a greengrocer, a barbershop, two hairdressers and some smaller retailers. Additionally, there is a brilliant family-run garden centre, restaurant and shop called Haddenham Garden Centre.
