Located in the village of Stokenchurch in the Chiltern foothills where Dick Turpin once roamed, sits our family-run historic hotel. For over 350 years it has welcomed guests – from King Charles II in the 17th century to locals from Marlow, High Wycombe and Henley-on-Thames in more recent years – with a cold beverage, a hearty meal and a cosy place to stay.

‘The Kings’ as we’re affectionately known locally, offers a character-filled venue for weddings, conferences, business meetings or lunches, charity balls, office parties and family special events. As well as being a fabulous place for a romantic weekend away and somewhere to treat yourself to a relaxing break, our hotel can also simply be a place to lay your head when on a cycling or walking holiday in the stunning countryside that surrounds our village.

We’re conveniently located for the Chiltern Hills (AONB), Henley Regatta, Royal Ascot, Oxford, and the historic market town of Bicester, and being just minutes from Junction 5 of the M40 means easy access to and from London and beyond.

We’re delighted to welcome guests for a restful stay, brides and grooms on their biggest of days, business clients and delegates, and couples and families as well as those who simply wish to sample the delights our team of chefs have created. To find out more, or to book a room, or a table in our refurbished restaurant, simply contact us today on 01494 609 090.


A stay at The Kings is a journey back in time without any compromise on comfort or technology of course, because every room has the highest quality Hypnos beds with crisp white sheets, duck down duvets and pillows, all with an en-suite bathroom, free Wi-Fi and flat screen TV with free view. It’s the distinctive charm of each of our 43 bedrooms that makes a stay in our historic building so memorable, from the unique style and character of our cosy attic rooms to the individuality of our signature rooms.


Making your wedding a truly special day to remember is what we’re here to do. Which is why, from the moment you get in touch to choose a stunning function room to make your own for the day, to the bubbly, food, dance floor and your choice of bedrooms for those who wish to stay on after the celebrations, our team will be there to make your wedding day every bit as memorable as you’d wish it to be. The Kings is fully licenced for civil wedding ceremonies and our wedding packages are as individual as you are.


From a romantic meal for two to a special night out for the family, a business lunch with a touch of flair to any excuse to sample the delights of our flagship restaurant. Resident and non-resident guests alike are welcome to eat in our restaurant, choosing from dishes that blend classic British cuisine with a contemporary twist – locally sourced fresh ingredients, cooked simply, honestly, and with delicate care.
