Out of the many restaurants in Aylesbury, we’ve narrowed down the choices to the ones that really hit the ball out of the park. This list of Aylesbury’s top restaurants covers award-winning eateries along with some affordable hole-in-the-wall hidden gems. The Jacobean, Georgian, and Tudor buildings in the old town of Aylesbury are part of the town’s charm, and many of them have been redesigned to house restaurants, pubs and bars. Pubs in particular, have a special place in the heart of this town, so expect a good selection of pies, roasts, and steaks.

Near the 13th-century St Mary's Church, you will find plenty of shops and cafes. If taking in the sights around Aylesbury has inspired somewhat of a historian inside you, Bucks County Museum is somewhere you’ll enjoy. The museum focuses on local history and hosts the Roald Dahl Children’s Gallery. Aylesbury is a multifaceted place and is also the birthplace of the Paralympic Games. They began in 1948 when the German-British neurologist, Sir Ludwig Guttmann initiated a small sporting event for WWII veterans. At the time, it was run from Stoke Mandeville Hospital, and known as The World Wheelchair and Amputee Games.
