The Poachers came into being about 1983 ( i know that because I worked there, underage). CAn't remember the name of the landlord. Had some riotous nights in there.

Are the "ROB" still active in the village?

It's a free country, adopt whatever PC stance you want. Just don't tell me which stance I should take just because it clashes with your opinion.

Seem to remember going to school with a Davina Bose. I think her parents lived in the Bakers Arms but could be mistaken. Did'nt they have ROB meetings there at one time?

The Bakers Arms had 3 bars, a saloon bar, a private (snug) bar, and a larger public bar at the back.

The bakers arms changed to the poachers in the early 1980s I've got a video of one of my birthday's when I had a police women stripper some of my best days were spent in that pub I'm sure if you asked anyone in there mid fifty's you will hear some great stories there was a big brass ships Bell behind the bar but one of the landlords stole it we did go to Portsmouth to get it back but they refused and called the police so we positioned to the brewery but they had left was a big loss at the time !

The 3 Pigeons has been rebranded and is now the 3 Oaks. It is no longer a pub but more of a restaurant.
I believe the owner is Terry Wogan's daughter who has other restaurants / pubs. This happened a couple of years ago.
Times are changing and pubs need to adapt to survive.
Chalfont is very lucky to have so many places where you can stop and have a few beers and a chat.

Is the Three Pigeons still open ? I think I only ever had one drink there and can't remember a dam thing about it.
But who will watch the watchers ?

And Dumb Bell.
The village is very fortunate to have such a number of pubs still and lost so few.
